Put It On Your Playlist

If you haven't played this course, you need to make the trip. Could very well be one of the top 5 or 10 in Texas! There isn't a bad hole on the course and each set of tees provides a challenge. Good players can tip it out and have all they can handle. Exceptional layout!

Fantastic greens

Played at 7:30 as a single. Since it was cold and recent rain on the course I played the White tees. Course was still a little challenging for me. Greens were being mowed just before I hit into most greens so it took a little longer to play the round. Greens rolled perfectly and were very smooth. Fairways were wide enough to hit driver on most holes. A few did require less than driver to stay short of hazards. Saw the marshal on a couple of holes even though there were very few golfers out. Friendly and helpful staff. Will play again when We are in the area.

Best Course in East Texas

This is one of the best courses with an excellent practice area in Texas. I would recommend this course for everyone to play. The prices are a little high for the area and distance you have to travel to get there, but if you can get a Hot Deal or a discount for play, take it, it is worth it. I wish the course was closer to me so I could play it more. The course stays in great shape and the greens are some of the best I've played on.

Best east Texas course

A gem in the heart of east Texas. With rain shutting everything down in DFW on Sunday I decided to head east. It was well worth the trip. This is a challenging layout cut right into the piney woods that makes great use of the terrain and landscape. Beats the heck out of the dfw black clay. Since chance of rain scared everyone away I had the course all to myself so pace was excellent. Greens were firm and fast. Fairways the same. I found a great place to go when I head black home for a visit.

Great track and beautiful shape in late Sept.

Tees, fairways and greens immaculate and cut out of forest. Cart paths mostly missing and bathrooms hard to find. Facilities old and average but you'll love the golf. No two holes alike and a great challenge. Really fun!!

Hidden East Texas Gen

The course was in great condition for this time of year. It is not a course that allows you to use driver off of every tee and keeps you thinking about shot placement.

Great place!! A little dry

It was a great layout but it was a little dry. Friend I played with stated it is usually a lot better looking but you could tell they just punched the greens and tee boxes not too long ago. Will definitely try it out again!!!

Great golf course

Beautiful golf course. Very tight, so you better hit it straight, but well worth the drive. Everyone in East Texas should play it at least one time.

Always Nice

Course looked great. Greens were very firm and much slower than I anticipated, but that could be due to the time of day that we played. I had only one complaint outside of the speed of the greens and that was some sand on a couple of holes was inconsistent with the rest of the course. However, with all that said, I love playing there and will be back when I have the opportunity.

The weather was really hot but the course condition was excellent. Fairways were mowed good and the greens were moderately fast but ample size.
Lots of sand as the name implies but traps were well kept.
A bit pricey and I would only play with a Golfnow discount.

Great fairways... Greens in rough shape

In my opinion this course is a little overpriced. I will only play if I catch a hot deal. Considering there's really no cart paths, just worn dirt areas to drive along that are bumpy. Best to just drive on the fairways for a smoother ride. The greens all had a lot of rough spots in them causing inconsistent rolls.

The good:
Course layout was really good. Challenging holes making you think about every shot. Definitely not a driver off the tee bombs away type of course. Tight fairways guarded by trees and lots of bunkers throughout the course. Practice facilities were great!

Just Pure Golf

Great course! I had played it before about 7 years ago and loved it then too. I would highly recommend making the drive to play this one. No fancy clubhouse or facilities, just pure golf greatness.

Fast greens

I used to be a member here So I should not be surprised by all the leaves strewn across the fairways. If you stay on the fairway you still may have a hard time finding your ball. Every leaf in the fairway was shining brightly so finding my ball proved difficult to say the least. The times I was off the fairway meant a lost ball. The course has never, to my knowledge, cleared leaves from off the fairway in the trees. It is fall so leaves are expected to be on the ground. At least make an attempt. The greens were fast and as I read in another review, forget the break. You'll be fooled every time. Although there is a lot of negative in this review I have to say that I love this course. I have a natural fade but enjoy trying to work a draw into my game. This course provides that opportunity. In the summertime there is no better place to play in southeast Texas. The staff members are always courteous , polite and friendly.
