Ol’ Colony is home to the University of Alabama men’s and women’s golf teams and was designed by former Crimson Tide standout and 1976 U.S. Open champion Jerry Pate. This heavily wooded layout circles around 25 acres of lakes, which come into play on numerous holes. The landing areas are fairly narrow, with dense forest, water and tall native grass all lurking. Many of Golf Digest’s course-ranking panelists give the facility’s conditioning high marks for playing firm and fast.
Best in State: Ranked inside the top 10 in 2009.
