In 1955, Fort Worth business leader, golf, and community benefactor, Marvin Leonard, bought 12,000 acres of rolling hills on the west side fro the Amon Carter Estate. He thought it would be the perfect place to fulfill his vision of a spectacular country club for his hometown, complete with a picturesque golf course and a small membership roster for congenial people.
In 2005, the clubhouse was replaced with a new efficiently designed facility. We still hold true to his original plan for the club a small, family-like environment with a spectacular golf course along with amenities for everyone.
The club operates two kitchens, the Ala carte restaurant is open 6 days per week, breakfast, lunch, and dinner and services three dining rooms. The second kitchen services the Hogan Room, a full-service restaurant; also, the pool when in season, which opens Memorial Day – Labor Day. We have indoor and outdoor tennis courts, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and a 25-meter swimming pool with a lap lane.
Shady Oaks Country Club is one of Fort Worth’s Premiere Country Clubs.
