ClubCorp - The World Leader in Private Clubs® - announces the acquisition of TPC Craig Ranch, a premier, private club in the Dallas suburb of McKinney. Located on 233 acres of breathtaking countryside within a lifestyle community, TPC Craig Ranch features a Tom Weiskopf-designed championship golf course, ranked #18 on Golf Digest's 2018 "Best Golf Courses in Texas" list.
"As the Dallas-Fort Worth area continues as a leader in the nation in population growth - with McKinney as one of the fastest growing cities - we are thrilled to add this premier property to our portfolio," said David Pillsbury, ClubCorp CEO. "The TPC brand represents exceptional quality and great golf experiences and is a complementary addition to our premier collection of clubs. We are excited to build on the traditions of this great club."
"Craig Ranch is a true live, work and play community with TPC Craig Ranch as one of the centerpieces," added David Craig, Craig Ranch Developer.

The par-72, 7,438-yard golf course, designed by Weiskopf with PGA TOUR player D.A. Weibring serving as a consultant, features beautiful, gently rolling hills and mature woods with lush Zoysia fairways and Bentgrass greens. Breathtaking Rowlett Creek crosses the course 14 times, creating a stunning backdrop for an inspiring test of golf.

All of his life, Brian has been around the game of golf. As a youngster, Brian competed at all levels in junior and high school golf.

In his adult years, his passion for the game collided with his entrepreneurial spirit and in 2004 launched GolfWisconsin.com. In 2007, the idea for a network of local golf directory sites formed and GolfTrips.com was born. Today, the network consists of a site in all 50 states supported by national sites like GolfTrips.com, GolfGuide.com and GolfPackages.com. It is an understatement to say, Brian is passionate about promoting golf and golf travel on a local, regional, national and international level.
On the golf course, Brian is known as a fierce weekend warrior that fluctuates between a 5-9 handicap. With a soft fade, known as "The Weis Slice", and booming 300+ drives, he can blast it out of bounds with the best of them.
