On land donated by Mr. and Mrs. E. O. Tenison in 1924, Tenison Glen became Dallas’ first municipally owned golf course. Thousands of Dallasites, from beginners to aspiring tour professionals like Lee Trevino, have developed their passion for golf on these tree lined fairways. White Rock Creek winds through this attractive layout, making ball placement a necessity. Golfers of all ability levels will enjoy a relaxing yet challenging 18 holes on this familiar classic. Tenison Glen was host to the USGA 1968 Public Links Championship.
All kinds of tournament groups and outings use Tenison Glen every year. We specialize in our service to groups and will strive to make your outing a “leave the driving to us experience” for the organizers.

Play short of the menacing fairway bunker to set up a short iron approach. Green wraps around an inviting bunker.
Drive long down the left side for the best view into this dogleg right hole. The road to birdie carries you over the fairway bunker on your second and turns into a picturesque green.
A classic driving hole. Keep your drive in the fairway to have a chance at tough pin placements behind either bunker protecting the green.
A beautiful par 3 is the beginning of a great finish at Tenison Highlands. Sycamore trees frame your tee shot to a two-level green sitting on the edge of the lake. Short is not an option.
Drive from a chute of cottonwood trees to a receptive fairway. Bowl shaped green setting frames uphill approach to a split-level green set in the Highlands.
Photo opportunity. Two fairway bunkers on the right put the final touches on one of Mother Nature’s masterpieces. Pretty as a painting!
Listen as the leaves tell you this could be the last birdie opportunity. Take advantage with a drive up the left side. Go for it over the right fairway bunker or lay up short of the left bunker.
Angled green favors left to right tee shot. You might catch a glimpse of a bobcat crossing your path into the woods.
D.A. may have saved the best challenge for last with this strong par 4. Drive close to fairway bunker for the best view to a well-bunkered green tucked into the hillside.
