TEMPEST GC GARNERS TOP 20 TEXAS BEST YOU CAN PLAY
By Steve Habel
GLADEWATER, Texas - Tempest Golf Club, the award-winning East Texas Jeffrey Brauer -designed championship layout, recently picked up two more honors as it was named the 18th Best Course in Texas You Can Play by Golf Digest and No. 1 Dallas-Fort Worth outlying course by Avid Golfer magazine in its annual survey.
The Golf Digest ranking was the highest ever for the semi-private Piney Woods gem, which was totally renovated by Brauer in 2018.
"It's certainly gratifying when outside sources recognized our great course and the opportunity for everybody to play it, but we have the resources and the dedication to keep improving until we're No. 1 in Texas," Wade added.
Along with its championship par 72 golf course, which has hosted several major amateur and college tournaments, Tempest offers expansive practice facilities with a practice range and multiple large putting greens, overseen by its signature clock tower. Plus, a modern clubhouse for dining and meetings.
There are stay & play cottages adjacent to the practice range and front nine with more scheduled to be built in the near future along with impressive real estate offerings.
