Overview of Nicklaus Course At The Club At Carlton Woods

Opened in 2001, the Nicklaus Course at The Club at Carlton Woods is the first of the club’s two 18-hole layouts. Eight-time USGA champion Jack Nicklaus routed the course through parkland and lakes, and designed the kind of challenging green complexes that have become synonymous with his layouts.

This will be the second USGA competition contested on the Nicklaus Course. Arizona won the 2007 USGA Women’s State Team Championship by eight strokes over Tennessee. The club’s newer Tom Fazio Course hosted the 2007 Men’s State Team Championship, won by host-state Texas by one stroke over Georgia.

Additionally, U.S. Open local and sectional qualifying has been conducted at Carlton Woods.

Since 2006, the club has hosted the Carlton Woods Invitational, a 54-hole competition for mid-amateur and senior players. Kevin Marsh, the 2005 U.S. Mid-Amateur champion, has won the event three times.

Carlton Woods also was the host site for the 2004 Texas State Amateur.

Since its opening, The Club at Carlton Woods has been an active participant in the USGA-supported Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program. The program stresses five key environmental areas: wildlife and habitat management, pesticide use, water conservation, water quality management and outreach and education. The Nicklaus Course was designated a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary in 2003 and has qualified for recertification every year since. The club’s Fazio Course achieved its certification in 2009.

At U.S. Open Championships the Chevron STEM ZONE™ is an interactive experience highlighting the science and math behind the game of golf through a variety of hands-on exhibits and experiments.

The partnership has also produced educational materials such as the Science of Golf video series and a nationally-distributed newspaper insert which are provided to teachers as tools to enhance existing curriculum in schools.
