Fossil Trace Golf Club opened in July of 2003, approximately 64-million years after the first dinosaurs walked where holes 11 through 15 now sit. Triceratops footprints, as well as other prehistoric creatures’ fossils can be viewed adjacent to the golf course’s 12th green. The palm leaf featured in our course logo, can be viewed in the form of a prehistoric trace fossil adjacent to the 12th green as well. Located just inside the main doors of the golf course clubhouse is an exhibit that details the rich history of the property and shares information about the dinosaur tracks and other impressive fossils uncovered during the excavation of the golf course.
