Trophy Club is an affluent northern suburb of the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex. It is Texas’ first premiere planned community, built around the only golf course designed by Ben Hogan. The Trophy Club Country Club features two, 18-hole premiere golf courses. Trophy Club residents enjoy miles of planned pathways, beautiful medians, and over 1,000 acres of parks. It is located in Denton and Tarrant counties in the U.S. state of Texas. The population was 8,024 at the 2010 Census. It has been acknowledged multiple times by D Magazine as one of the best places to live in Dallas–Fort Worth.
The community was developed in 1973 by developers Johnson and Loggins, who created the community as a housing development surrounding the country club. The town was named for the original plan that the country club would house the trophy collections of golf legend Ben Hogan, who designed its golf course. Originally part of Westlake, the town incorporated in 1985. The first Mayor of Trophy Club was James “Jim” P. Carter, who served as Mayor from 1985 until 1999.
