Texarkana Golf Ranch
7401 Scott Wright Road
The Dallas Morning News says "Texarkana Golf Ranch is one of the best bargains in Texas", a prime example that high-end golf can be relatively low-priced. Designed by Jim Fazio Jr., the course is built around 600-acre spring fed Bringle Lake. The lake is a feature of 17 of the tree-lined holes.
Ace of Clubs House
420 Pine Street
Group tour rates and guided tours are available. The Ace of Clubs is a uniquely designed house built in 1885. Legend has it that entrepreneur James H. Draughon built the 22 sided house with the winnings from a poker game and that the winning card was the Ace of Clubs. Each room represents a specific period in the history of the house and reveals interesting insights into the life-style of the families who lived there.
Open Tuesday - Saturday, 10 am to 4 PM.
