Luxury generally refers to experiences or lifestyles that are considered high-quality, elegant, and often associated with comfort, refinement, and class. Nothing aligns better with this definition than Celina’s very own 1876 Country Club, located in the heart of the Legacy Hills development. 

While North Texas has no shortage of places to play golf, none will personify luxury more than this one-of-a-kind, upscale country club. In addition to an exceptional golfing experience, the club will also offer tennis, swimming, fine dining and exclusive social events. 

Because of Celina’s rich history, Centurion American Development Group engaged Native Texan and renowned golf course designer, Lee Singletary, to design the 18-hole course. It will be next to the Little Elm Creek and its tributaries, with beautiful trees like Live Oak and Cedar Elm throughout the grounds. It will consist of a driving range, practice facility and short-game area. The Championship tees will play 7,337 yards and include five sets of tees for each hole, allowing for an assortment of handicaps. The course grasses are made of TifEagle Bermuda and TiffTuff Bermuda on the tees, fairways, and roughs. 

Following the opening of the golf course, a lavish, full-service clubhouse facility with a state-of-the-art exercise area, men’s and women’s locker rooms plus saunas, a group fitness gym and private member rooms will be developed. Both fine and casual dining opportunities will be available at the property to suit all occasions.

While 1876 is tentatively scheduled to open in November 2024, now is the time to obtain Founding Memberships. A very limited number of highly sought memberships are currently available to individuals and businesses. Benefits include preferred access to tee times, partial rebates of initiation fees and private events. Presently only golf memberships are available, but eventually, the club will offer tennis and social club memberships. Sandy Lewis, Director of Sales, Operations and Membership states the memberships have been in high demand and will sell quickly.  “We’ve already had amazing interest,” notes Lewis. “Since Centurion American broke ground on the Legacy Hills development in April 2022, we’ve had inquiries from people enthusiastic about the potential for this beautiful golf facility.”

Centurion American designed the deluxe country club to celebrate Celina’s history while maintaining a sophisticated, modern resort ambiance. Named after the year Celina was founded, “1876 will offer Celina and surrounding area a truly unique and special place to gather unlike any place in North Texas,” said Mehrdad Moayedi, CEO of Centurion American. “It will be the central hub for the Legacy Hills development.”

Legacy Hills is located near the intersection of Legacy Drive and Celina Parkway, near the future extension of Dallas North Tollway. The development has an array of onsite amenities including walking trails, numerous amenity centers, potential Celina ISD schools, plus a first responder station. Mehrdad Moayedi states, “Legacy Hills offers something for everyone seeking the experience of living in Celina.” Also noteworthy, a sports park comprised of 27 acres of land donated to the City of Celina from Centurion American is planned which will pass through the center of the development and the 1876 Country Club.
