Piney Woods

The small towns of East Texas are a serious golf-adventurer’s dream. Starting in Lindale and stretching to the Louisiana border is the Azalea Golf Trail, a line of public courses in charming spots like Gladewater, Lake Palestine, and Longview, where you’ll enjoy a relaxed atmosphere, tufts of the titular blooming azalea shrub, and some of the best-designed courses in the state, at a price that’ll leave room for more than a couple Lone Stars at the local watering hole. You’ll immediately see, as you pull into towns like Trinity, Conroe, and The Woodlands, why great golf in this region can’t stay a secret for long: towering pine forests, magnolia trees, luxuriously manicured greens, perfect, pink azalea shrubs, and expansive, crystal-blue lakes are generously peppered throughout the area to the north-northeast of Houston. Take a golf trip to East Texas, but be warned: You may never find the right reason to leave.
