PRESS RELEASE - For Immediate Release - February 6, 2017
FANNIN COUNTY, TX - One of America’s most unique communities will soon boast one of the country’s most distinctive golf courses as Trident Lakes today announces a partnership with DE Golf Design.
The company, led by decorated architect Dave Edsall, will bring an innovative vision to Trident Lakes, the upscale country-club resort equipped with underground, Apocalyptic safety. The 18-hole course, which will wind around 700 acres and 532 subterranean condominiums, will be named “Course Of The Gods.”
“Dave’s experience and vision fits perfectly with the special community we are building,” says Trident Lakes CEO Jim O’Connor. “We’re confident we’ll have a golf course that exceeds our residents’ lofty expectations.”
In harmony with Trident Lakes’ theme, Course Of The Gods’ holes will be named after legends of Greek mythology. The par 4 18th hole will finish over two ponds and be dubbed “Poseidon’s Revenge.” Other holes could be named “Zeus” (a potential 650+-yard Par 6), “Hermes” (surrounded by hazards and boundaries) and “Nesoi” (an island-green Par 3).
“This is a one-of-a-kind development and it’s deserving of a special design,” says Edsall, who has 30 years’ experience and has helped develop courses from California to Maryland to Brazil. “Course Of The Gods will be like no other golf course. It will be a privilege to be a part of something this unique.”
DE Golf Design, headquartered in Edgewater, Maryland, developed the successful Tour 18 courses in Houston and Dallas, and has partnered with two-time major champion John Daly on several golf-related projects. Edsall was a guest speaker at the 2009 Golf Business Forum in Wales, and is widely considered an industry leader in Replica Concept design.
