This private Birmingham-area layout was designed by Tom Fazio and Jerry Pate and debuted as Golf Digest’s Best New Private Course of 1994. Visually narrow fairways play wider than they appear, given the unduldations often feed the ball back toward the center. This rolling course with relatively small greens was recently renovated by Pate and Steve Dana. It currently ranks as the sixth-best course on our Best in Alabama list.
