Colonial has been ranked as one of the top courses in the U.S. by Golf Magazine's panel of experts.
The club was founded by a local businessman, Marvin Leonard, who sponsored a young Ben Hogan, who forever became associated with the club. Since 1946, the course has been a Tour stop and is now the home of the Crowne Plaza Invitational, and it hosted the 1941 U.S. Open. It is consistently ranked among the best courses in the country by GOLF Magazine. For more information, go to colonialfw.com and crowneplazainvitational.com
