THE WALL OF CHAMPIONS
The names of the winners from the past 70+ years run the length of the first tee box. Competitors “know they’re playing the same holes as (Jack) Nicklaus,” says Tournament Manager Dennis Roberson.
WALKS HOLES 3, 4 AND 5
Known in the golf world as “the Horrible Horseshoe,” Holes 3 and 4 combine a dogleg with challenging angles and landscape, and hole 5 is the most difficult hole at the club. These holes are par 4, 3, and 4 respectively, and breaking even on the Horrible Horseshoe is a golfer’s dream.
THERE'S A MINI STORE ON SITE
All ticket holders have access to Main Street, which includes a coffee bar, pastries and sandwiches and merchandise for purchase.
FIND THE STATUE OF LEGENDARY GOLFER BEN HOGAN
Hogan won the Colonial five times, more than any other golfer. The statue is located on the 18th hole and is a reminder of the history of the 70+ years of golf history in Fort Worth.
Tickets start at $50 per day (which includes access to the grounds, Prince Street and the Colonial Grill). There are some nice upgrade packages, including the Champion’s Club, a giant air-conditioned tent with a sports bar and big screen televisions for guests to rest and rehydrate. If you’re a Citi Card member, you will have access to the Citi Cardmember Lounge on the 13th tee box with your ticket.
The Patio Club at the 16th hole offers access to the Clubhouse Patio and Champions Club. The Hogan Club on the 18th hole adds access to the open air skybox for premium viewing. And the “Best Seats in the House” offer unobstructed views of the 18th green for Saturday and Sunday attendees.
