Rangers to put name on Arlington golf course as part of $20 million project
Posted On 5:05 pm
The Rangers and the city of Arlington have reached a first of its kind agreement that will put the team’s name on one of the city’s golf courses.
Mayor Jeff Williams said this will be the first golf course with a Major League Baseball team’s name attached. Under the 36-year promotional and licensing agreement unanimously approved by the city council Tuesday, the Rangers give the city the right to use its brand on the golf course, which is about three miles from Globe Life Park and the entertainment district.
The Rangers are not paying to put their name on the course. The city will retain all revenue from golf course merchandise sold with Rangers logos, and the Rangers will market the golf course at the stadium during games.
The Rangers have scheduled a Friday news conference to discuss the details of the agreement.
The $20 million project includes new routing, tees, fairways, bunkers and greens by Arlington-based Colligan Golf Design as well as a new clubhouse that is expected to be ready in 2019.
