Birmingham Forest Golf Club

875 Copeland Street
Rusk, TX 75785


Birmingham Forest Golf Club is a family-owned, 9-hole course in the rolling hills and Piney Woods of East Texas in the small town of 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. In fact, The Dallas Morning News once named it 35th in the "Best Nine Hole Courses" in Texas.

There's a reason players have nicknamed Birmingham Forest Golf Club "the toughest little course in Texas." 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....thus the name of the course. You can still find the history embodied by the area's antique horseshoes, railroad spikes and arrowheads.

You'll love the history, course, pro shop and more found at Birmingham Forest Golf Club. And we can't wait to welcome you to our course!
