A father and son/daughter golf tournament was held at the Birmingham Forest Golf Course in Rusk on Saturday, Aug. 4.
According to the website, bestgolfcourses.org, Birmingham Forest Golf Club is a family-owned, nine hole course in Rusk.
“The course first opened in 1967, and in the following decades it has earned a reputation as one of the best courses of its size in the Lone Star State,” the site states. “In fact, The Dallas Morning News once named it 35th in the ‘Best Nine Hole Courses’ in Texas”
According to the website for the golf course, www.birminghamforestgolfclub.com, “The strategic design tests players on both their decision making and shots. Birmingham’s rolling fairways meander around a spring-fed lake and through the woods.
“All holes have four sets of tees, making it a great play for golfers of many different skill and experience levels. The course also has an interesting history. It sits on what was once New Birmingham, a ghost town that was an iron ore boomtown in the 1800’s.”
Prizes for the winning teams, long drive prize and closest to the hole prizes were a few of the categories awarded at the completion of the tournament on Saturday.
