The Dogwood Golf Course
The Clubhouse

Designed by John Sanford, the Dogwood course at Garden Valley opened in 1992 and has been consistently rated as one of the top courses in East Texas. The course features Champion Bermuda greens, beautiful lakes, and tall pine trees and will allow you the opportunity to test every aspect of your game.


Back Tees: 6,840 yards, 72.4/132


Middle Tees: 6,269 yards, 70.1/126


Front Tees: 5,532 yards, 72.5/130


The front nine of the Par 72 course is an excellent test of golf across a more open area of the property. Water comes into play on 5 of the 9 holes, with two par 3s and two par 5s. The back nine winds through the pine trees and around picturesque Lake Butler. Water comes into play on 7 of the 9 holes, with two par 3s and two par 5s, including the dramatic finishing hole with its green cradled by the lake on the right side. Ultimately, the entire course layout will have you focusing on the scenery as much as your next shot.
