Texas Golf Trail

New Mexico, Alabama, and Louisiana have golf trails and now Texas has some Texas Golf Trails that include some of the best golf courses in Texas. The Texas Golf Trails on this page start in far north east Texas on the Azalea Golf Trail and end on the Canongate Golf Trail just south of Houston.

So, you're thinking to yourself, what does Texas Outside think of these Texas Golf Trails! Well the answer is - we loved them. Each of the courses are very unique and different and have their own personality and challenges. All of the courses, except one were rated above an 8 or higher out of 10 on six criteria - condition, challenge, scenic beauty, variety, fun, and value - and a couple are in Texas Outside's Top 20 Public, Top 20 Private, or Top 20 Resort Golf Courses.
