10 Places to Visit During Fort Worth Colonial Week
The Colonial Golf Tournament is here, we’re teeing up a list of Fort Worth’s most golf-clap-worthy restaurants and bars. Whether you’re visiting for the first time, a seasoned attendee of The Charles Schwab Challenge or even a Fort Worth local, these spots are sure to suit you well... Put on your visor, work up an appetite on the course, and read our list below for all of our Fort Worth favorites. Just make sure you call to see if they have golf cart parking.
Located right across the river from Colonial itself, Woodshed is the go-to spot for a cold beer and a great view. Their indoor/ outdoor patio comes complete with a cool breeze all summer long, the occasional live band and the guarantee of a lively crowd. Need I say more?
HG Sply Co
HG (ie. Hunters & Gatherers) is just a stone’s throw from the course, making it the perfect place to take a load off your feet and grab a great bite to eat. With a selection that ranges from salads and burgers to nourish bowls and fresh salmon, HG beckons a crowd of its own. Staying at the tournament till the sun goes down? That’s the perfect time to head over and partake in their complimentary sunset toast. Don’t worry, that pro tip is on the house.
When the clock strikes late afternoon and you’re ready to park it somewhere other than the ninth, take a trip down the trinity and let yourself indulge in the ever-intriguing offerings at Press Café. The riverfront property boasts an impressively delicious menu, and a long list of dining options. Indoor rooftop, outdoor rooftop, riverfront patio seating and more. Wherever you chose to sit, you can be sure that you’ll be well taken care of for breakfast, brunch, dinner and lunch. Looking for something a little easier to eat on the course? Stop by the neighboring Saturday morning farmers market and grab a fresh snack to go.
Just a hop skip and a jump away from the fairway, Rogers Roundhouse is a brand new addition to Fort Worth. Already at the top of our list of favorites, it’s as convenient for the colonial attendee as it is for the beer lover. The inside/ outside space is fully equipped with TV’s, so even when you take the golfer out of the game, the game stays with the golfer.
Winslow’s Wine Café
Since wining and dining requires focus, precision and expertise, we thought this swanky neighborhood haven would fit in perfectly with the weekend’s activities. Not sure If you want to wait until after a long, hard day on the course to enjoy a good glass of vin and something tasty on the side? You’re in luck… Winslow’s brunch is a hole in one too.
This is definitely no place for putt putt. Only true pros would be able to appreciate the finest cuts of meat Bnb butchers has to offer. The meat is matched only by the atmosphere…. And the exquisite cocktail menu.
Camping out on the green? We get it. But with so many incredible dining options in Fort Worth, we’d hate for you to miss out. Lucky for you die-hard golf enthusiasts, you can have both. East Hampton’s salads, sandwiches, french fries and beverages, are the perfect thing to put in your picnic basket and take to the course. Since it’s right across the street, you’re guaranteed to make it back before tee-time.
Rhar & Sons
Trying to decide if you should swap the Golf Tour for the Brew Tour? Rhar and Sons makes an appealing case for the latter of the two options. Located in Fort Worth’s charming Near Southside neighborhood, their local beer taps are a crowd favorite at any time of the day.
If you’re looking to get a taste of Fort Worth from a seat beyond the gates of Colonial, there’s no better place than the heart of downtown. Bird Café is famed for their exquisite patio that sits right in Sundance square, but a little-known secret is that their rooftop views are on par with a perfect day on the course. Grab a great cocktail and share a family style meal with your fellow fair-weather fans.
Joe T Garcia’s
Looking for a change of scenery? Joe T Garcia’s is on the other side of Town in the Historic Stockyards. While their margarita pitchers and beef fajitas are something to write home about all on their own, the best part is the atmosphere. This is like Disneyland for adults y’all… drinks, fountains, and market lights galore. The largest patio in Fort Worth puts the cowboy in Cowtown.
Now that you know the ins and outs of the city we’re proud to call home, it’ll be a high purse win regardless of the outcome of the game. Want to see more of Cowtown? Visit our Fort Worth feed on Instagram @cowtownchronicles.
