There's no better way to wind down from the long moving process than to go to the green, get a breath of fresh air and take out your excess energy on that little white golf ball. Your new hometown, Dallas, Texas, may be a bustling metropolis, but it still has space reserved for a slew of great golf courses. Here are a couple of local greens that you should check out after your Dallas movers have left.Dallas National Golf Club The Dallas National Golf Club is 7,326 yards of verdant grassy plains, sand bunkers and close-cropped putting greens. It's the creation of renowned landscape architect Tom Fazio, who's designed 15 courses featured in Golf Digest Magazine's Top 100 list. He even referred to the Dallas National Golf Club as "The best piece of land in America close to a major city." While the club is conveniently in the vicinity of your new home, it's remote enough that you won't be distracted by the sounds of cars or congested city streets. You can also warm up before your tee time on the expansive practice range.
You can engage in friendly competition with your new neighbors by entering one of the tournaments that Tenison puts on. Signing up to play includes getting a reserved tee time, golf carts and the course's staff will keep track of and post everyone's score.
Tenison Park was renovated in 2000, so now its green and driving range are wheelchair accessible and the course offers instructors to help teach golfers with special needs.
