Stevens Golf Course Temporary Closure

Since 1924, the City of Dallas has operated Stevens Park Golf Course, the second oldest municipal golf course in Dallas. Stevens Park Golf Course is an 18-hole course located in the Kessler Park neighborhood.

Over the last two weeks, Stevens Park Golf Course has experienced difficulties with growing-in and maintaining adequate turf coverage on the greens. Maintenance staff have focused considerable efforts on promoting growth within the greens turf. However, over the past few days, we have observed that the greens have not responded to our efforts. The greens have approximately 35% to 45% turf coverage, and this condition is adversely affecting play for the course.

Park staff have contacted turf specialists and agronomists in the region to develop a plan to replace the greens turf over the next ten to twelve weeks. During this time, the course will be closed to the public while staff removes the existing turf, establishes new turf, and makes other needed improvements to the course. Updates on our progress will be posted on www.dallasparks.org and www.stevensparkgolf.com.

We understand the impact the closure will have on the Dallas golfing community and we will be working diligently to complete the turf replacement and grow-in. We plan to reopen the course on or about July 6th or sooner, if possible. We are confident reinstalling the greens will keep Stevens Park as one of the top municipal golf courses in North Texas.
