Turtle Point Yacht & Country Club

Killen, AL Private

Overview

Situated on a gently sloping hillside overlooking Wilson Lake in northwest Alabama, Turtle Point is a Robert Trent Jones Sr. design playing along the rolling tree-lined landscape. With very few fairway bunkers, the landing areas are narrowed by tall pines with exposed pinestraw underneath, conjuring up images of Augusta National. The par-3 eighth roughly resembles the 12th at Augusta as it plays over water to a shallow green angled away from the player and guarded by several small bunkers. Turtle Point is currently ranked fourth on our Best in Alabama list.
