In 1993, Carlton Gipson designed the highly acclaimed Oak Hurst Course, which has hosted numerous professional tournaments over the years. The Dallas Morning News has featured the course in their “Diamonds in the Rough” pieces about outstanding rural Texas courses.

Gipson’s design is unique in that every hole appears different, requiring all sorts of shots and the use of every club in the bag. Oak Hurst is also well known for its large, well-bunkered, undulating greens and water that comes into play on over half of the holes.

The number-one-rated hole is No. 10, a challenging 595-yard par 5 that welcomes golfers who’ve allowed their concentration to wane at the turn. However, the most-talked-about hole is the par 4 16th, which plays around 400 yards and has been rated by the East Texas pros as the most difficult in the region.

    If it weren’t for the poor attitude of the pro at the front desk, would have given this coarse above average rating. The front desk pro was NOT helpful whatsoever and extremely rude. I live at Oakhurst subdivision and will NOT be going back to golf. It’s truly a shame.
