Challenge at Gladewater is a semi-private, 18-hole track that is known for its traditional design and well-manicured greens. The narrow fairways are lined with trees, and the design incorporates a few strategically placed trees that can alter your golf shots.

You’ll have the chance to start strong here, with a 272-yard, par 4 opening hole, followed by a 157-yard par 3. The other par 4s average between 350-400 yards. The number one handicap is No. 8, which plays an easier 450-yard par 5 on the front, but is a 400-yard par 4 the second time around.

Designed by Jack Hearrell, the course opened for play in 1933 and in 2008 James Dobson along with Burt Langley designed the new nine holes with updates to the existing nine.

Relax, have fun, and pay once to play all day.

Getting there : From Hwy. 271 south drive through Gladewater, and proceed to Hwy. 135. Turn left (south), then make a right on Country Club Dr.. The entrance is on the right side of the road.
