Don’t pack your clubs away this winter—Texas golf season is in full swing
(January 2022) — Feeling a bit stir-crazy heading into winter? Dormie Network, a nationwide collection of private pure golf destinations, offers the perfect remedy: a discovery visit to Briggs Ranch Golf Club, a Tom Fazio design just outside San Antonio.
As the network’s southern-most destination, Briggs Ranch boasts average high temperatures in the mid-60s through February. With the milder temperatures come lush turf — Briggs Ranch is the only American course at that latitude with bentgrass greens. The Fazio design makes the most of the rolling land and is truly a course interesting yet friendly enough to play every day, with a laidback yet exclusive environment perfect for buddy trips, business retreats, or a family getaway.
The facilities are top notch, with ongoing improvements. Last fall, Dormie Network completed construction of six onsite casitas at Briggs Ranch for a true stay-and-play experience. Currently, there are nine more casitas under construction — slated to be complete by spring 2022 — which will give Briggs Ranch 15 total casitas. Even better, no assessments are passed on to members.
Guests will enjoy top-ranked golf — Briggs was listed as Golfweek’s No. 182 Modern Course in 2020 — along with executive chef-prepared cuisine, handcrafted specialty cocktails and luxury onsite lodging.
Following a round or two, guests will have dinner or drinks waiting at the clubhouse, and they can just roll down the path to their home away from home. Each casita features four master suites, fireplace and lounge in the common area, and a walkout patio with firepit. Guests can also enjoy private dining in the casitas, featuring network specialties or unique dishes created to their own particular liking.
Awaiting are farm-to-table menus with a Texas flair, such as refreshing blackened scallop red corn tacos or member-favorite pork barbacoa enchiladas. Briggs Ranch is also home to Chef’s Table, a private interactive dining experience perfect for private business meetings, date nights, and groups celebrating special occasions. Chef Josh Reeves and his culinary team walk guests through this eight-course culinary journey, describing the inspiration and ingredients used behind each dish.
Members and prospects alike have access to Dormie Network’s private travel partners, so there’s no need to fly commercial. Whether it’s business or pleasure, an onsite concierge will book the entire trip for you from start to finish, helping plan the next unforgettable experience for you and your guests.
