Tin Cup Country Club is the cornerstone of the Taylor Country golf community. Located in Merkel, Texas, just west of Abilene, Tin Cup features a brisk pace of play, relaxing atmosphere and some of the friendliest course employees in all of Texas.
Tin Cup is the rare course that manages to challenge experienced players while helping rookies relax as they learn this classic game. The course is a short, 18-hole par 71, spread out across 100 acres of picturesque North Texas scenery. Merkel Country Club started out with just 9 holes. Due to popular demand, In 2005 a second nine was added and rename to Tin Cup country club. Our course boasts bentgrass greens, which we maintain with expert precision. Our signature hole is No. 3, a 494-yard par 5 that forces players to make the decison of playing it safe or going for it in two, which would involve a risky shot over a water hazard.
After your Merkel golf round, make sure to stop in our comfortable clubhouse and say hello. We can't wait to meet you!
