Sunset Golf Club Course Details

The original Sunset Golf Club was established in the 1930′s at the corner of Cockrell Hill and Davis. Sunset moved to its current location in 1953. It has been owned and operated by three generations of the Mims family.

The Mims family has a long history of golf. C.B. Mims was the architect and PGA professional until he died in 1992 at the age of 75. He played on the tour in the 1940′s and 50′s, and played in the 1941 U.S. Open and many times in the Dallas Open.

C.B.’s sister, Bettye Mims Danoff, also a touring pro, was one of the eleven founders of the L.P.G.A., which was chartered in 1950. Mrs. Danoff beat “Babe” Zaharis at River Crest Country Club in the Texas Women’s Open. She retired touring in the late 1950′s and now resides in Plano, Texas.
