Don't let the beauty of the magnolias, creeks and stone bridges catch you off guard. Evergreen Point is a demanding course that requires concentration on every shot. With water coming into play on fifteen of the eighteen holes, and more than forty bunkers, accuracy is a must. Evergreen Point is in an area steeped in Texas history. The golf club is located just minutes from the San Jacinto Battlefield where Sam Houston and his army defeated the Mexican Army to gain independence for Texas. In 1848, Dr. Ashbel Smith, Surgeon General of the Texas Army and friend of Sam Houston, became the owner of the thousand acre "Evergreen Plantation." With the Purchase, he became the largest land owner in the vicinity.
