Capitol Hill Golf Courses
One of the most popular sites on the Trail, Capitol Hill, in Prattville, continues to get praises from golfers and golf writers alike. Golf Magazine called the Judge course one of the 10 public courses in America worthy of hosting the U.S. Open and the Zagat Survey of America’s Top Golf Courses ranked it among the top 50 courses in America. The Senator course was named among the Top 10 New Courses in the nation by Golf magazine and is showcased in October during the Navistar LPGA Classic.
Located in Prattville, approximately 13 miles north of Alabama’s state capital, Capitol Hill features three 18-hole championship courses. With more than 1,500 acres of golf and nature, the pure magnitude of this facility is amazing and allows each course to be drastically different from the others.
The Judge offers stunning vistas alongside the glistening backwaters of the Alabama River. The first tee sits 200 feet above the fairway overlooking the Montgomery skyline. With 14 holes adjoining the water and a stunning bulkhead island green, the Judge is described as simply magnificent.
The Legislator, a more traditional course, plays in and out of pine trees and along a bluff. The view riding down the “Sky Bridge” for holes laid out in a native cypress swamp will impress as you are led back up the bluff to finish the course at Capitol Hill’s spectacular clubhouse.
The Senator, a Scottish-Links style course with beautifully manicured bentgrass greens, holds over 160 pot-hole bunkers and mounds 20 to 40 feet in height. The secluded settings of each hole will make it feel as if you are the only foursome on the course.
