I'm a Trailblazer!

Toro’s the name, and I’m now officially a Trailblazer! I’ll admit that I’m not like the other bulls in the Fort Worth Stockyards—which is what led me to strike out on my own in search of adventure. Finally, now that I’ve found TCC, I feel like I fit in.

Toro on the Green

Change in Start Times

Updated: May 12, 2014

In hopes of avoiding possible thunderstorms later in the afternoon, the tournament will begin one hour earlier. Over the course of the day, we will be calling all players for whom we have phone numbers. In the meantime, please confirm that you have received the time change. The change in start times can be viewed below. We look forward to seeing you all on Monday!

TCC will host its 2nd annual golf tournament, Toro On The Green, at Woodhaven Country Club. The Club boasts an 18-hole, par 71 championship golf course designed by Leon Howard and pro-golfer Terry Dill. Toro On The Green golfers will enjoy gently curving fairways and challenging elevation changes, punctuated by meandering creeks and streams, dramatic arching trees and strategic bunkers.

About Toro

Tarrant County College welcomed me, Toro the Trailblazer, to the College family as the official College mascot in 2011. Chancellor Hadley invited me to the Employee Appreciation Breakfast and I had a blast! I have the photos to prove it.

I’m hoping to meet the people of Tarrant County, encourage them to go to college, and inspire them to come to TCC. Feel free to invite me to your event.
