Valley Ranch, Irving, Texas
VALLEY RANCH is a planned unit development in the Dallas, Texas suburb of Irving . The name comes from the fact that the land it is sited on was formerly a working ranch and is located below a large ridge, and thus resembles a valley. The area lies in the Trinity River floodplain; however, an extensive levee system on its eastern side separates the river from land, thus making it desirable for development. In order to maintain flood control and to provide recreation facilities for residents, Valley Ranch has many winding canals with walkways throughout. Valley Ranch formerly hosted the practice facilities of the Dallas Cowboys football team, who moved to Frisco, Texas , in 2016, and the Dallas Stars hockey team, who have also since moved to Frisco

Golf
GOLF is a club and ball sport in which players use various clubs to hit balls into a series of holes on a course in as few strokes as possible. Golf, unlike most ball games , cannot and does not utilize a standardized playing area, and coping with the varied terrains encountered on different courses is a key part of the game. The game at the highest level is played on a course with an arranged progression of 18 holes, though recreational courses can be smaller, usually 9 holes. Each hole on the course must contain a tee box to start from, and a putting green containing the actual hole or cup (4.25 inches in diameter). There are other standard forms of terrain in between, such as the fairway, rough (long grass), sand traps (or "bunkers"), and various hazards (water, rocks, fescue) but each hole on a course is unique in its specific layout and arrangement
