Jack Matthews Announces First Annual Dick Butkus Golf Classic

(April 18, 2016 – The Colony, TX) Jack Matthews, President of Matthews Southwest and well-known developer throughout the D/FW Metroplex, announced today the first annual Dick Butkus Golf Classic, on April 22, 2016 at Old American Golf Club in The Colony. All proceeds from the event will benefit The Butkus Foundation.

Matthews, the Tournament Chairman, has known the Pro Football Hall of Fame linebacker for nearly ten years and wanted to help create an event to support The Butkus Foundation, a non-profit 501-c3 private corporation created to advance health and wellness. “When I heard they hold a golf tournament in California to support this cause, I thought it would make sense to expand the reach with a tournament in Texas. Especially since we have access to such an exceptional golf course, and there are just so many civic-minded people in this area. I’m personally really inspired by what The Butkus Foundation does for kids, and teaching them how to be involved and take ownership of their own health and well-being. I knew that others would want to support this great cause as well.” Keep reading.

New Water Tower in The Tribute Serves Growing Peninsula

(October 22, 2015 —The Colony, TX) The Colony unveiled its $2.4 million elevated water storage tank with an unlikely celebration – a friendly water fight between developer executives and city administrators.

“Being out here beneath this new tower with our friends from Matthews Southwest is just a perfect example of how The Colony continues to enjoy success with all of our recent growth, both in the residential and commercial sectors.” said The Colony Mayor Joe McCourry.

“This tower was part of our 2010 water plan to accommodate expansion in the area,” continued McCourry. “It was built on property that the city owns, which was donated by the developer Matthews Southwest, and lessens the demand on the city’s other three water towers.” 

Funds from The Tribute Tax Increment Financing District, which the city council approved in 2013, paid for the cost of constructing the tower and did not impact property taxes. Matthews Southwest, the developer of The Tribute, a master-planned community located in The Colony’s Wynnwood Peninsula, financed the cost of construction of the tower on behalf of the city to speed up the construction timeline. Continue reading.
