Trophy Club Real Estate

The uniquely named Trophy Club, Texas, is a small city that lies within the borders of both Denton and Tarrant counties in the Dallas-Fort Worth Megaplex area. Though small, this master-planned community has experienced rapid growth over the past decade, with the population just over 8,000 in July 2008, a nearly 30% increase since 2000.

Trophy Club lies about 30 miles southeast of Dallas at an elevation of 600 feet. It was the first master-planned community in Texas and has a total area of 4.1 square miles. The community was founded in 1973 when two developers began to investigate the possibility of founding a new housing development around an upscale country club. Its name came from Trophy Club Country Club, so called because it houses famous golf professional Ben Hogan's awards and is the only course he ever designed.

Trophy Club covers a largely residential nearly 2,500 acres, with only 15 areas zoned for commercial use. Children in the community are served by the Northwest Independent School District, which includes Lakeview Elementary and Samuel Beck Elementary, Medlin Middle School, Byron Nelson High School (grades 9-10) and Northwest High School (grades 11-12).

Trophy Club residents were measured in 2008 to have a median annual household income of nearly $117,000, and median home values at that time were estimated at nearly $260,000. Professional services, transportation, finance, insurance and education are the industries in which the most number of residents are employed. The nearest hospital is about eight miles away in Grapevine, and the community maintains Harmony, Independence and Lakeview parks and Trophy Club Park at Lake Grapevine. It also has Trophy Club Golf Lake and a community pool.
