The AT&T Byron Nelson Tournament returns to its original home, Dallas, in 2018.

The City of Dallas announced today that the tournament will be played at the new Trinity Forest Golf Club in South Dallas.

The Byron Nelson, which has been played in Irving since 1983, has deep connections to our neighborhood.

The tournament was played at the Oak Cliff course now known as the Golf Club of Dallas for a decade, from 1958-’67. Two Sunset High School graduates have won the tournament — Don January in 1957 and Earl Stewart Jr. in 1961. Stewart’s win made him the first home pro in history to win a PGA tournament.

The Salesmanship Club of Dallas puts on the tournament every year, and the proceeds fund the Oak Cliff-based Momentous Institute.
