Cherokee Country Golf Association


Lake Cherokee, about 20 miles outside of Longview, is a 12-mile-long private lake with over 100 miles of shoreline. Residents and stockholders have the lake’s recreational opportunities at their disposal, as well as the unique little 9-hole golf course designed in 1985 by Ed Stites.


While the course has three standard par 3s, Stites tricked up the course with 200-yard par 4s, including No. 2, listed at 187 yards, and par 5s that are barely over 400 yards. Members use two sets of tees to play 18, and as you might imagine, it plays pretty fast.
