Turtle Creek Club was chartered on March 19, 1969. When the course opened for play on March 12, 1970, there were 38 members. The course is built on approximately 150 acres of land. By October of 1971, the club had over 100 members and the existing facilities were improved and expanded for golf club use over the years. By 1986, the membership, which had long since grown to its maximum membership of 250 equity members, voted to build a $2 million dollar clubhouse for dining, bridge and entertainment, as well as locker room and golf shop facilities.

In 2004 the club hired Peacock + Lewis to complete a master plan for future clubhouse improvements. After a successful vote to proceed. In 2006 Phase I renovations of the clubhouse with the main dining room, grille room and scenic bar created to comfortably accommodate members and their guests. The highlight of Phase I was a new gathering spot for the membership for casual dining, pre-function cocktails and after golf camaraderie utilizing a courtyard between the existing dining and grille rooms. A new timeless look was created for the main arrival foyer, dining room and gallery with traditional detailed and painted millwork, lighting and finishes.

The new grille room combined stained and painted millwork coffered ceilings, perimeter in booths and a large peninsula shaped bar which was specifically designed to accommodate large groups after golf and before functions. In 2009 Phase II of the renovations were completed, with the pro shop, locker rooms, and space for cards and meetings added to the club facilities.
