I love this course, one of the best I've played in the state. Staff is incredibly friendly and the winter rate is only $49. $49 is an absolute steal, can't wait to come back when The Inn is completed. The course is open and fair, definitely give this course a try if possible. Only thing I would suggest is an occasional ball washing station.

This is a unique course in that it is a research and development agronomy center. They use different types grasses on the tee boxes and fairways, though you would be hard-pressed to really notice. All of the greens are bent. One of the best things about this facility is its' practice area. There is a dynamic, wide driving range with a variety of targets. There is also a large chipping, pitching and bunker green with three different targets. A spacious putting green is also available. Another cool thing about this course? In the spring and summer, you can help yourself to ice-cold apples in wooden barrels at the first and tenth tees. The par-3 5th hole gets all the attention, due to its' ~100-foot drop from tee to green. It really is a spectacular hole. Even though you probably won't be playing the tips, take a ride to the top and look out at the surrounding view. From here you can see the nearby marble mines. Sylacauga and the surrounding area was home to the largest continuous underground marble deposit in the country. Marble unearthed from it was used to build many of the monuments in Washington, D.C. Back to the golf: the par 3s really stand out. The 17th is a stunner as well, requiring a carry over a lake with a lodge in the background. I've stayed in that lodge and it is spectacular sitting on the deck in the late afternoon watching players finishing up. I would say that although the conditioning of the course is spectacular and there is rarely that many players when I've gone (making pace of play a non-factor), there just aren't that many memorable holes. Collectively, it's a good course, but outside of the two par 3s I mentioned, I'm just not sure the memorability is there. At the end of the day, it is still a fun play. GPS in the carts are a plus, and in the summer when the days are long they offer a play all-day special, with a southern buffet lunch in the rustic clubhouse included.

I've heard so much about FarmLinks since I moved to AL. It was a nice experience. Course layout provides a challenge to all levels of golfers. Staff is friendly and carefully watch the pace of play. Great views throughout the course, Especially the par 3 from 200' up. I'd definitely recommend this course and will be back.
