Lake Cherokee, about 20 miles outside of Longview, is a 12-mile-long private lake with over 100 miles of shoreline. Residents and stockholders have the lake’s recreational opportunities at their disposal, as well as the unique little 9-hole golf course designed in 1985 by Ed Stites.

While the course has three standard par 3s, Stites tricked up the course with 200-yard par 4s, including No. 2, listed at 187 yards, and par 5s that are barely over 400 yards. Members use two sets of tees to play 18, and as you might imagine, it plays pretty fast.

Getting there : From Shreveport, LA, take I-20 west to Hwy 149. Turn left and drive 10 miles to the course. The entrance is off Lake Cherokee Rd. on the right side.

    I am a traveling businessman who enjoys thrifty golf throughout Texas. I can honestly say that this course is a hidden jewel outside of Longview. The price is perfect for this well maintained 9 hole course. I walked 9 at twilight for less than $9.00!
    I will definitely play this course again.

    This is a great course designed to perfect your short game. The narrow lines and small greens challenge every shot. You are allowed to stretch out with your Driver on #6 and #8, but it's #3 and #4 that will show off our talent to move the ball around creative fade/draw through the tree lined fairways. This course is open to the public!
