Trophy Club is a town located in Denton and Tarrant counties in the U.S. state of Texas. It is a wealthy northern suburb of the city of Fort Worth and is part of the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex. It has been acknowledged multiple times by D Magazine as one of the best places to live in DFW.
The community was developed in 1973 by developers Johnson and Loggins, who created the community as a housing development surrounding the country club. The town was named for the original plan that the country club would house the trophy collections of golf legend Ben Hogan. The town was incorporated in 1985.
The town is served by the Northwest Independent School District. Elementary school children in the town go to Lakeview Elementary and Samuel Beck Elementary. Middle school students attend Medlin Middle School. The town is served by Byron Nelson High School. Prior to the opening of Byron Nelson High School, students went to Northwest High School, the district’s first of now three high schools.
