Beaumont Country Club

5355 Pine St
Beaumont, Texas
(409) 898-7011

The Beaumont Country Club, one of the oldest country clubs in Texas, was chartered November 12, 1906 and opened for business the next year. Situated high on the wooded banks of the Neches River, the new club featured a golf course, bowling alley, boat docks, tennis courts, and a plantation-style clubhouse. The club had complete facilities for wedding parties, anniversary celebrations, and corporate meetings. The Beaumont Enterprise praised the new club as “a favorite retreat” with a beautiful setting “on the banks of the river . . . in the shade of the trees.” Charter members amounted to a “Who's Who” of local business, professional, and industrial leaders, as well as prominent Beaumont families: Bordages, Broussard, Carroll, Crawford, Edwards, Gilbert, Gordon, Hobby, Keith, McFaddin, Norvell, Proctor, Reed, Shepherd, Stedman, Steinhagen, Tyrrell, Wiess, Wilson, and others. Charter directors included Charles H. Markham, Gulf Oil, J. Edgar Pew, Sun Oil Company, and Colonel Sam Park, Industrial Lumber Company. Colonel Park, later American Vice Consul to France, served at BCC's first president. On October 25, 1907, Colonel Park and fellow members opened the golf course. Park drove a golden ball off the Number 1 tee and christened the new nine-hole facility that was laid out by Alex Findlay, a Scotsman who designed more than one hundred other American courses including the San Antonio Country Club and The Greenbrier in West Virginia. The BCC course, later expanded to eighteen holes, has seen numerous outstanding golf competitions: in 1946, a match among “the Big Four”, Ben Hogan, Jimmy Demaret, Byron Nelson, and Sam Snead; and during 1953-1964, the Babe Zaharias Open, a Ladies PGA tournament that drew all the nation's top women golfers including Louise Suggs, Patty Berg, Betty Jameson, and the world-famous Babe Didriksen Zaharias.

Adventure Kingdom

2952 U.S. 69
Lumberton
(409) 751-5464

Our 18-hole renaissance-themed mini golf was designed and built by a professional Canadian miniature golf company. Our number one goal was to have a fun castle adventure for kids while offering a challenging course for adults. Over 100,000 people have played the course and they have told us that it is one of the top mini courses they have ever played. Wow, what an honor. There are over 400 plants on the 20,000 sq. ft. course. We have had folks from all across America and Germany, France, Italy; and so on give us a big thumbs up.

The course begins with Robin Hood shooting his bow and arrow at a target. Next, try to putt your ball over a ramp to an island. Then, it's off to the stockade for misbehaving. Oh my, you have to try to putt your ball through a small hole under a ship wreck. Now you are standing in front of the biggest shield and helmet you have ever seen. The next hole offers three choices with three different results. Our #9 hole is one of most exciting holes to see if you can land your ball in our working catapult. That is a cute castle arch we get to walk through. Watch out for the jousting knights as they face off. The wooden pergola is beautiful area to walk under and try to putt over double hills. Beware of the TNT that it doesn't explode when you putt through it. Then, cross the bridge to the giant castle to see a small boy putting while his sister is trying to distract him and good ole Jester the clown is laughing at both of them. On the 18 th hole, if you make it into the center of the royal carriage the entire village will know as trumpets sound and a voice announces that you made a hole in one.

We are completely lighted for night play and seven colorful shade sails help keep you cool. The course is wheelchair accessible. We are open year-round!
