The Colony

Just north of Dallas, nestled alonga 23 miles of shoreline, you’ll find a uniquely tranquil getaway complemented by metropolitan luxuries. The Colony offers a variety of outdoor

excursions, world-class restaurants and lively entertainment you won’t find anywhere else in Texas. This summer, hit the road and learn why The Colony is where you go to play! Swing through three award-winning golf courses, complete with scenic lake views and greens honoring the sport’s historic past. The Tribute Golf Links, listed as one of the top five courses in Texas by Golf Magazine, is an homage to the legendary courses of Scotland. Nearby Old American Golf Club features natural contours and native grasses as it evokes the “golden age”of American golf course architecture. In October the course hosts Texas’ longest running LPGA tournament event. Rounding out courses in The Colony is the 9-hole Stewart Peninsula Golf Course featuring double greens and challenging play along 65 acres of lake views.

The extended warm season creates plenty of opportunity for recreation along Lewisville Lake. Enjoy the steady breeze off the lake while you traverse trails on a mountain bike, bird watch along acres of nature preserve or cast a line past the sandy shores for a moment of calm. The lake is easily accessible from one of The Colony’s two lake parks, Stewart Creek Park and Hidden Cove Park and Marina. The Colony is a growing hub for first-to-market restaurants and attractions, offering experiences not available anywhere else. Many restaurants within Grandscape, the city’s premier indoor-outdoor entertainment, shopping and dining destination, feature seasonal specialties crafted with regional produce for an exclusively local taste. Eat your way through dozens of culinary adventures, ranging from elevated Italian steaks to authentic Indian curry and more.

Make plans for entertainment the whole family can enjoy, whether you’re competing for first place at Andretti’s, scoring points at Topgolf, taking in the sights from atop the Grandscape Wheel or stepping into a virtual world at Immersive Gamebox.

For the 21 and up crowd, Puttery provides the perfect mix of craft cocktails and immersive modern mini golf with its Instagram worthy courses. The Colony is constantly bringing new attractions to the area. Visit Red Phone Booth, an exclusive speakeasy only available to those with the password, and keep an eye out for the latest golf experience designed by Tiger Woods, PopStroke, coming soon.


Experience Texas-sized retail at NFM, the nation’s largest home furnishings store, and SCHEELS, the world’s largest all sports store. For something truly unique, shop within The Homestead and find expertly crafted goods including handmade jewelry, bath and body products, boutiques and made-to-order desserts. In the evenings, The Colony comes alive with a vivid live music and micro brewing scene.

Kick back with nightly entertainment ranging from rock and country concerts at Truck Yard to touring national acts headlining the Lava Cantina stage. Each venue serves small-batch brews on tap and specialty cocktails featuring native ingredients. Whether you escape to the outdoors or discover unparalleled entertainment, The Colony is the ultimate year-round destination.
