AT&T Canyons - Designed by Pete Dye
Due to the differing topography, the Dye and Norman Courses complements one another with each having a unique look, feel and playing experience for members and resort guests. While very different from the traditional, tree-lined AT&T Oaks course, the AT&T Canyons Course will stand on its own as a tournament venue in terms of design, strategy and beauty. This course sits on a great piece of land which provides panoramic views of an adjacent 750 acre nature preserve. The design, which measures more than 7,500 yards, is true to nature and the flow of the land. The dramatic elevation changes and hill country views make this course not only challenging, but breathtaking as well.
AT&T Oaks – Designed by Greg Norman
The AT&T Oaks Course, the home of the Valero Texas Open, reflects the TOUR’s departure from the modern tournament style course which featured expansive grass areas and spectator mounding, to a more natural look and feel, a true to nature feel. All this is done without sacrificing the fan experience making it very tournament friendly. Norman’s deep reverence for nature is evident in every rugged twist and turn of this spectacular layout, replete with rolling hills, an abundance of mature trees and beautiful indigenous flora. This world class course is a traditional design that balances narrower tree-lined fairways with wider fairways offering multiple routes and strategic options into the greens. The Oaks course is an intimate design with narrow corridors carved through oak trees with only 100 feet of fall from the highest point of the course to the lowest making it very walker friendly. The bunkers are spectacular and reflect a natural, rugged “minimalist” with edges emulating the canopy of the native oak trees. The course measures 7,435 yards and plays to a par of 72. A unique feature of the course is all downhill holes play into the prevailing wind, while the uphill holes play downwind.
