Trophy Club is a suburb of the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex. When established in the 1970s, it was one of the earliest premier planned community in Texas, built around the only golf course designed by Ben Hogan. It is located west of DFW Airport and south of the western edge of Lake Grapevine, spanning the county line separating Denton and Tarrant along State Highway 114. The population was 13,688 in 2020.[5]

History[edit]

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.[6] 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.[6]

According to the Environmental Working Group, Trophy Club is the only Town in the United States where the drinking water exceeded the legal limit for Mercury in 2017-2019.[7]
