Golf Digest placed Gray Plantation in the top 100 of America's greatest public courses for 2005/2006 and again for 2007/2008. In addition, in September 2004, GOLF Magazine ranked it as one of the "top three among 50 best U.S. courses for $50 or less." Gray Plantation is an artfully landscaped 18-hole, 7,000-yard course designed to challenge the pro and amateur alike. Sixty acres of lakes come into play on 12 holes of veteran course architect Rocky Roquemore's Calcasieu River course, which includes 94 bunkers and towering pines at most every turn. Particularly impressive are the club's four dynamic par 3s, two of which feature island greens. The clubhouse is a raised plantation house surrounded by scenic marshland.
