About: Rayburn Country Resort, in the Piney Woods north of Jasper and near the shorts of Lake Sam Rayburn, offers 27 holes of golf. The original nine is the Gold Course, designed by Jay Riviere. The Blue Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., was added in 1972. And the Green Course was added in 1979, designed by Robert von Hagge and Bruce Devlin. All three nines play through pines and hardwoods, but the Green Course is the toughest. It is very tight, with numerous elevation changed and doglegs. Overnight stays at the resort can be made in a modest hotel on the premises, in townhomes around some of the fairways, or in resident-owned condos that are placed into the rental pool.
