A Lubbock golf course has been named as one of the best in Texas by a publication.

The Rawls Course, owned by Texas Tech University, has been named as the second best course in the State of Texas by Golfweek Magazine.

The Rawls Course was second only to the Pine Dunes Resort and Golf Club in Frankston, and was followed by Barton Creek in Austin, Butterfield Trail in El Paso, and Old American Golf Club in the Colony.

Rawls was ranked as the third best campus course in the nation by Golfweek last fall. This year’s ranking is four spots above Rawls’ previous ranking.

“It is such a great honor to be recognized as the No. 2 golf course you can play out of around 1000 courses in Texas,” said General Manager Greg Winter. “Being part of the Troon Golf team that is involved with the Rawls course which is an enjoyable experience for all levels of golfers is truly special.”

The course is currently undergoing a $3.7 million addition to add a state-of-the-art clubhouse and team facilities, which will give both Texas Tech golf programs one of the top facilities in the nation.
