The Town of Trophy Club is rich with a history that dates back to 1847. That year, Charles and Matilda Medlin left Missouri and came to settle along the banks of Denton Creek, along with some 20 other families. The creek's constant flooding soon caused them to relocate to an area of higher ground. That area has since become what is now known as the Town of Trophy Club.
Evidence of the Medlin family's early existence can be seen in the heart of Trophy Club. The Medlin Cemetery, designated as a Texas historical landmark in 1977, was the final resting place of Mittie Ann Medlin. The story has been passed down that, before she died on April 15, 1850 at the tender age of 21, she expressed her wish to her parents to be buried on this hill because of the beautiful views.
In 1973, construction of Texas' first premiere, planned community centering around a country club began. The golf course was designed by legendary Texas golfer Ben Hogan, one of the greatest golfers in U.S. history. In fact, the original golf course, still operating today, remains the only Ben Hogan designed golf course in the world! As Trophy Club began to grow, it eventually became incorporated as a town in 1985.
Today, the population of Trophy Club has grown to approximately 10,000 people with a wide variety of home prices ranging from the $100's up to over $1,000,000. With careful planning and consideration of the residents' needs, the Town constantly reviews plans to ensure that the community maintains the neighborhood atmosphere that its residents have come to treasure.
Trophy Club is located in Denton County, Texas inside a major growth corridor with close proximity to both Dallas and Fort Worth. Accessible within minutes to all areas of the DFW Metroplex, Trophy Club is a prime area to live, work, or play. Inside the town itself are a number of parks, miles of existing pathways and a community swimming pool.
