The Links Fore Kids March Marathon, launched originally in 2013, is a 36-hole golf tournament split between the Old American Golf Club and The Tribute Golf Club in The Colony, Texas. This event is a very simple format focused on playing golf and raising funds for Trinity Kids. There are no teams, no prizes, and best of all - no posting of your scores! Individuals are paired in 4-man groups based on request or luck-of-the-draw. Golfers may switch groups after the first 18 holes in order to network with other golfers at the event. The tournament was held in 2013, 2014 and 2016, but no further events are planned at this time.
The Tribute Golf Club
The Tribute Golf Club offers a unique Scottish links-style golf experience, complete with wind-swept dunes, sea-washed grasses and other authentic Scottish links-style design elements. The course’s captivating variety of holes include the famous par-4 17th Road Hole; the breathtaking starting 1st and finishing 18th holes from St. Andrews, and features a walk over the Swilken Bridge.
The course also includes the Postage Stamp par-3 5th hole from Royal Troon; the par-5 3rd hole known as Hogan’s Alley from Carnoustie; plus holes from Turnberry, Prestwick and two holes from Muirfield, which is perhaps the finest and most exclusive golf course in the world.
The Old American Golf Club was designed by Justin Leonard and Tripp Davis and showcases their love for the early American golf courses, the “classics”, created during a period from about 1910 to about 1937 that was know as the “Golden Age of Golf Architecture”. It was a period when the greats of golf architecture, such as A.W. Tillinghast, Seth Raynor, Donald Ross, and Perry Maxwell crafted golf courses into the land with strategic interest and variety as their main objectives.
