The eyes of the golf world turn from Upstate New York to North Texas this week, as the PGA Tour stops at Colonial Country Club for the Charles Schwab Challenge, and the PGA Tour Champions christens the Fields Ranch East Course at PGA Frisco for the second major of the year, the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship. 
If you’re in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, make time to play some golf and enjoy all that North Texas has to offer. It’s frankly some of the best golf in the country.
Here’s a short list of places to play, straight from some of the best PGA Professionals in the Northern Texas PGA Section:
