Trophy Club is a wealthy suburb community that's just north of Dallas and south of Corinth, in Texas. It is the state's first premium planned town, and it is centered on the only golf course created by Ben Hogan, which is located nearby.
It is located in the Texas state of the United States, in the counties of Denton and Tarrant. At the time of the 2010 Census, the population was 8,024. It has been recognized by D Magazine on numerous occasions as one of the greatest locations to live in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex.
Developers Johnson and Loggins built a housing development around the country club in 1973, and the neighborhood was the first to be developed in the state of Florida.
The town was named after the initial plan for the country club, which was to host the trophy collections of golf legend Ben Hogan, who also constructed the golf course in which it is located.
The town, which was once a part of Westlake, became a separate entity in 1985. James "Jim" P. Carter was the first Mayor of Trophy Club, and he served in that position from 1985 until his death in 1999.
The population of the town was 8,024 people in 2010, with 3,072 houses and 2,893 families according to the 2010 census figures. It had a density of 2,033.5 persons per square mile, according to the census (785.5 people per square kilometer).
