The HP Byron Nelson Championship will be on the move in a half-dozen years.

The tournament and the city of Dallas have come to an agreement that moves the Texas PGA Tour stop from Irving to the Trinity Forest Golf Course beginning in 2019, according to Dallas Morning News.

The course will be built on top of a former landfill, designed by the duo of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw. It will take three years to build the course.



The Nelson has an agreement with current host TPC Four Seasons Resort and Club to serve as host of the event through 2018. Trinity Forest will then begin a 10-year deal with the tournament to host.

TPC Four Seasons has been host of the Nelson since 1983. It underwent renovations designed by former PGA Tour player D.A. Weibring and Steve Wolfard in 2008.

AT&T will take over the title sponsorship of the tournament beginning in 2015.
