Robson Ranch Roundup — December 2018

Don Duff, Denton City Council, District 3

The Mayor of Denton presented a Proclamation to the Robson Ranch Support Our Troops organization on November 6 at the regular Denton City Council meeting.

The proclamation states that Robson Ranch residents formed Support Our Troops (SOT) in 2006 and there are currently 300 members who support some 80-90 military personnel. More than 400 greeting cards have been sent annually to military personnel. The SOT conducts a Veterans Day patriotic service at the Robson Ranch Veterans Park with a flyover, and an annual spring golf tournament complementary for up to three dozen military personnel. The SOT has also raised $80,000 which supports the organization and provides for comfort items to military personnel as well as other groups who support them such as the USO, Patriot Paws, Roll Call and Intrepid Soldiers. Also SOT ships 500 care packages annually to military personnel to help provide for the material, physical and emotional needs of our service men and women.

Additional water volume to Robson Ranch will be added in the spring of 2019 to the Southwest Pump Station. Securing the required easement was approved at the last City Council meeting. The added flexibility will insure a reliable water supply to Robson Ranch. 

A very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of Robson Ranch!

We hope you are enjoying our weather extremes.  After all, it’s North Texas.  But despite the crazy weather, there is always time to play a little golf at the Wildhorse Golf Club at Robson Ranch.  For many years this hidden gem has been well known and respected by our active adult residents. But the secret was quickly getting out to other North Dallas/Fort Worth communities.  Case in point, Avid Golfer named Wildhorse Golf Club to its Top 15 list.

Our new PGA Director of Golf, Roger Martinez, calls Wildhorse “One of the best Community-Links style designs he has seen.”  That’s a pretty nice plug from a tenured Golf Digest Ranking Panel Member.  Martinez will tell you; “There are so many hidden nuances to this course.  Resistance to scoring is not in the distance, especially for the young high school players that hit it so far nowadays.  It’s subtler. Every hole is either well-bunkered, peppered with gorgeous rock or concrete edged ponds, or bordered by Environmentally Sensitive areas, which play just like a lateral water hazard.  This is a thinking golfer’s course where strategy is important.  Our greens are fast and firm – a golf rater’s paradise.”

If you’re just looking for a leisurely Sunday afternoon round of golf, Wildhorse is also incredibly playable – you just have to pick the right set of tees. The course has the standard Blacks. Blues, Whites, Golds and Reds for all levels of players. 

We have also recently added Silver tees that are far more forgiving of various hazards and are perfect for those new to golf. To make a tee time just log on to:

For those of you looking to fine-tune your golf skills, Wildhorse has two of the top golf academies in the state.  The Lone Star Golf Academy and Dave Bowles Golf School are headquartered at Robson Ranch.  With top-notch practice facilities in your own backyard, there’s no better place to hone your skills.  Look for more from our teaching pros in the months to come! 

Director of Agronomy, Ryan Coffman, and his team, have done an amazing job on this course.  In fact, they will be hard at work in the next few months as Wildhorse begins to add the long-awaited Palomino nine to its arsenal.  You read it correctly! Come fall of 2019, Wildhorse Golf Club will have 27 holes.

This is certainly going to give us the opportunity to reach out and connect to our community.  Not only will we have enough inventory to accommodate our homeowners, but we will now be open to hosting more company, corporate, high school and league play at the Club.

Wildhorse Golf Club also boasts one of the finest food and beverage establishments in the area.  The Wildhorse Grill, and Clubhouse next door, can accommodate golf tournaments with up to 144 golfers and weddings or private dining functions of up to 400.
