Hampton Cove Golf Club
At the northern terminus of the Trail in Huntsville is Hampton Cove, a 54-hole facility with terrain that drastically changes from one side of the property to the other. The Highlands Course was recently renovated to convert it back to its original design as a true Scottish links course, with rolling fairways and long, waving grasses.
Completely opposite in design is the River Course, the only Robert Trent Jones layout without a single bunker. The River Course is a throwback to the way courses were built long ago. The dirt was merely pushed up to create the greens and tees, leaving all else, including massive oak trees, as is.
The Highlands Course is one of the gems of the Trail. At the signature fifth hole, an old mule barn adds to the picturesque appeal of the setting. The River Course is laid out on former soybean fields in the flood plain of the Flint River. The par-4 fourth hole is a sharp, dogleg-right with water surrounding the back of the green.
