COLOMB, Texas, September 10, 2021 / PRNewswire-PRWeb / – Big Easy Ranch Announces Grand Opening of New 18-Hole Championship Golf Course September 17, 2021.
Chet Williams Design was selected to design the 18-hole golf course complementing the original nine-hole golf course that he also designed. Williams is widely known for many remarkable course designs and redesigns, including top notch golf courses at Texas and beyond. As Williams said, “I am very happy to be selected to design the new 18 hole golf course at Big Easy Ranch in Columbus, Texas. There are quite a few redevelopments and renovations going on across the country, but this will be one of the very few new courses under construction. The property is ideal for a championship golf course, with 80 feet of vertical drop, natural streams, beautiful native vegetation and mature oak trees, providing the setting for what will be one of the best courses in the State and the country. I couldn’t be more excited about this project and the achievement Billy Brown’s vision.”
The 18-hole golf course has been carefully placed on the 2,000-acre property to take full advantage of the unique terrain which will include several elevation changes with 80-foot drops from tee to fairway, tree-lined fairways, natural streams and waterfalls. The par 72 course will be over 7,400 meters with several tees, Zeon Zoysia fairways and raw and TifEagle greens offering the best playing and course conditions for the region.

The 18-hole golf course will be an additional amenity to the existing nine-hole golf course, training facilities and the Golf Academy teaching center. Construction of the course will begin September 2021 with expected completion for September 2022.
