Beauty of the Brazos Valley

Since it first officially opened in 2005, the Robert Trent Jones II-designed golf course at Miramont has consistently earned rave reviews and has regularly been ranked among the top 10 to 15 courses in Texas in various polls. But the Club’s ownership was not content to merely maintain the status quo. In 2014, Miramont’s commitment to upgrading and enhancing a course that already had developed such a prestigious reputation played a key role in the Club’s ability to attract the Junior PGA Championships in 2014 and 2015.

According to the 2015 rankings compiled by Golf Digest, Miramont’s 7,127-yard, 22-hole course (18 championship holes and a four-hole “family” course) is now ranked as the seventh-best golf venue in the Lone Star State. Such accolades are common for Robert Trent Jones II courses, as his team of designers have created premier golf courses from South Africa to Russia and from Kansas to Kuala Lumpur. But Jones says he has always been particularly pleased with the Miramont design. “From the moment Mr. Donald A. Adam shared his vision for Miramont Country Club with us, I knew it was something so special that we wanted to be a part of it,” said Jones II.

In addition to its spectacular, timeless and challenging (but not overwhelming) design, Miramont’s sparkling reputation as one of the premier golf courses in the state continues to improve because of the meticulous care it receives daily from the Grounds and Golf Course Maintenance Crew, allowing the course and landscaping to age gracefully. “Next time I contemplate a quick trip to Scotland for a round at Gleneagles, I might just drive to Miramont instead,” noted former LPGA Commissioner Jim Ritts. "From the moment the extraordinary and expansive, European manor-style Clubhouse came into view, I knew this was going to be a unique Texas golf experience. It is impossible to overstate the grandeur of the facilities at Miramont."
