Walnut Creek Country Club The premier golf and country club in Mansfield

With 36 holes of challenging golf, tennis, resort-style pool and more, it's easy to see why Walnut Creek Country Club in Mansfield, TX, was named one of the Best Country Clubs in DFW by Avid Golfer. Bring your family and enjoy all that Walnut Creek has to offer.

Named one of the Best Country Clubs in DFW (Avid Golfer, 2011, 2013 and 2014), Walnut Creek Country Club is one of the finest 36-hole private country clubs in Texas. Walnut Creek is nestled in the thriving city of Mansfield, just minutes away from major attractions such as Six Flags Over Texas, The Rangers’ Ballpark in Arlington, the new Dallas Cowboys Stadium, and the third busiest airport in the world. Rich in tradition, Walnut Creek is more than a country club. It is a place where families come together to enjoy the fellowship that can only be found here. In a class of its own, Walnut Creek offers the privacy and prestige you expect to entertain your friends and business associates. 

Since 1974, Walnut Creek Country Club has been creating that spirit of excellence – a spirit that continues today. We pride ourselves on creating a lifetime of memories that you will cherish. 

Oak Course

Designer: Mark Brooks

The Oak Course is newer and features wider, more forgiving fairways. It is viewed as the more 'friendly' golf course, but may grow teeth as the game progresses because 12 of the 18 holes contain a water hazard to challenge the player.

Pecan Course

Designer: Don January

The Pecan Course has a more classic layout that requires shotmaking ability from the players. The back nine of the Pecan will challenge every golfer’s ability as it plays into the predominant southerly wind.
