Fall has finally gotten the memo in Texas and is gracing us with cooler weather and color changes. Being outside is pleasant again! Consider it serendipitously perfect timing: The 450-acre Whispering Pines Golf Club in Trinity is now reopened, after an extensive course construction by Texas golf course architect Chet Williams. “After 20 years, we felt like it was time to revamp the course, so it continues to provide the best possible experiences for both our members and for the great players who compete here,” said Corby Robertson Jr., founder of Whispering Pines Golf Course and The Spirit Golf Association (SGA), 501(c)(3).

Whispering Pines Golf Club, located 88 miles north of Houston, is an incredibly beautiful course, complete with tree-lined fairways, mischievously stunning water features, and challenging curves. Some highlights of the new construction include upgraded cart paths, completely rebuilt greens, bunker reconfiguration, re-leveled tees with additional boxes added, and extensive new drainage. Additionally, the fairways and roughs are now grassed with Zeon Zoysia, and the greens feature TifEagle Bermuda grass. A nine-hole, short course named The Needler is also available for play and was designed by Williams.

This nationally-ranked and recognized golf course was first designed by Williams in 1998 during his tenure with the Nicklaus Design Group, and it opened in March 2000. Since then, it has consistently ranked as a top course and served as host to the Spirit Charity Challenge and the bi-annual Spirit International Amateur Golf Championship, to be held again in 2021. Williams said he is “pleased with the result” and is certain “golfers will find Whispering Pines even better than ever.” Cruise over the top of this gorgeous, newly reconstructed course through video here.
