Each May, Dallas hands off the PGA Tour, and Fort Worth takes it into the end zone with its traditional pageantry of the Crowne Plaza Invitational (May 20 to 26). With grand architecture, stunning views, plaid jackets and the always entertaining caddie races—when it comes to golf in North Texas, there is nothing quite like Colonial Country Club. Known for its length since its inception in the mid 1930s, Colonial and its 7,204 yards ranks as the No. 13 toughest course on the tour according to the PGA. If you’re part of the fortunate few who get to play there or you are just enjoying the tour, do not miss the awe-inspiring No. 5 hole — at 481 yards along the Trinity River, this par four is noted as one of the best in the country.
