Another Texas Course on the Auction Block

Sure seems like there've been a lot of courses across Texas sold on the auction block lately. Now another one is up for grabs.

Shallow Creek Country Club in Gladewater can be all yours ... if the your price is right. The Piney Woods track comes attached to an RV park and 223 acres of land. It's an 18-holer measuring 6,765 yards.

The semi-private Shallow Creek was built in 1989 and has a 7,500 square foot pro shop and clubhouse that includes a grill serving "the best hamburger in East Texas," according to the sellers.

The danger in these golf course auctions is always that the purchaser is buying with the intention of razing the golf course and developing the land for other uses. The auction house, in this case, appears to be touting the course for purchase as a business investment (meaning the course would remain operative), but you never know.
