More than a Club the focal point of connecting our growing community for over 15years.
The Stonebridge Ranch Country Club celebrated 15 Years of Service and involvement to McKinney and North Dallas in 2003. In commemoration, we would like to recap some the special attributes and events that have helped build a community.
After years of planning, the Club opened in 1988 as a The Flying M Ranch with the vision to be the Premier Golf and Country Club Community of North Texas. The developers commissioned Pete Dye to select any plot of land for his design and they would build the development around it. The accolades from Golf Digest as one of the Best Golf Courses in the Nation help to bring focus to the quality of life that could be expected. The challenge of the 18 hole Pete Dye Signature course and versatility of the Championship Arthur Hills designed course at The Ranch have offered fun and excitement for all ages and skill levels. The addition of holes 19-27 on the Hills course in 1999 gave even more flexibility and value for our Members.
Stonebridge has played host to several prestigious tournaments over the years including the AJGA Team Championships in 1990,1991,1992, NCAA Championships in 1994, Texas State Open in 1997 and 1998, and U.S. Open Sectional Qualifier. Most recently Stonebridge Director of Golf Perry Arthur was able to bring the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournaments for 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2004 to our Club. The North Texas PGA Championships was also held at the Dye Course for 2003. A unique event that was also held in 1991 was the 1st annual and only World Music Invitational featuring both Music and Golf Celebrities from around the globe.
After 15 years, most clubs are positioned differently than their original concept. The Clubs of Stonebridge Ranch remains the epicenter for camaraderie of the award- winning Stonebridge Community. A community that has grown to 4500 families since it’s inception. Many skeptics felt the vision for The Clubs of Stonebridge Ranch was ahead of its time. Our time has come.
