Contemporary Golf Course Home In Bent Tree Royal Sweeps Our Dallas Open Houses | CandysDirt.com

I became more familiar with the Bent Tree Royal neighborhood up north of Bent Tree Country Club when I was running for Dallas City Council last spring. The area is amazing, and I instantly knew the real estate would be worth writing home about if a home ever became available there.

And it finally did! 17310 Club Hill Drive sports the best of what this neighborhood is all about. Sleek contemporary homes built into a bluff, many with updates, most facing the golf course greens. But the maintenance is practically zip, save for bushes and a few trees. 

To make it even better, Bent Tree Royal is tucked away between two creeks, with winding streets and TONS of mature trees. It is nesteled between Preston Road and the Dallas North Tollway off Westgrove, which at one point sounded oh so far north. 

But now, with all happening in Plano and at Legacy, this area is a most perfect location to jump north OR south. DFW is a hop skip jump off George W. Bush, and The Star is just up the Tollway.

Homes RARELY come available up here, because the location and bones are so great.

Lee Trevino

He may be one of our local golfing greats, but Lee Trevino was back east in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia a couple weeks ago in a very historic gathering:

Jim Justice, owner of the world-famous Greenbrier, brought together, for the first time, four Hall of Fame golf icons: Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Dallas’ own Lee Trevino.

The four will collaborate on a first-of-its-kind championship golf course called Oakhurst. The Greenbrier is, of course, one of the foremost destination golf resorts and vacation home residential communities in the country. It is also home to the annual PGA Tour FedExCup event, The Greenbrier Classic.

The four golfing legends joined Jim Justice in breaking mid October on the new mountain course. With its dramatic elevation changes and spectacular vistas overlooking the historic
Oakhurst Links course, the moment was the first-ever course collaboration between these four golf legends. Their combined experience will be the centerpiece of Oakhurst, the newest real estate neighborhood planned for The Greenbrier Sporting Club Subdivision.

6624 Indian Creek Front

As far as amenities go, golf courses are on the way out in favor of low-maintenance, family-oriented splash pads and hike and bike trails. But for this lover of the links, there’s nothing quite like having a view of a lush, well-manicured fairway. For that reason, this 1970s soft contemporary in the beautiful Tarrant County suburb of Westover Hills has my heart.

Of course, the interiors have been completely updated and are absolutely luxurious, so that is a bonus. Jump to see inside this lovely listing from Williams Trew’s own Martha Williams.
