Trophy Club feels like you’re entering a gated community. The entire town. Which was the original plan in 1973, to be the state’s first entirely planned community. And while there is a certain sense of Kool-Aid drinking here, people still love it. All retail is on the fringe, with neighborhood after neighborhood inside. These are people who enjoy cutting their shrubs into geometric shapes (or having them cut). Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Residents love that there is no major—or really even minor—thoroughfare through Trophy Club. Kids ride their bikes and feed the ducks. The Trophy Club Country Club is the anchor of the town, a big golf community, yet many people find a starter home here.
