Hampton Cove

Huntsville, Alabama


The northern gateway to the Trail is Hampton Cove in Huntsville, a 54-hole facility with terrain that drastically changes from one side of the property to the other.

Renovated in 2008, The Highlands course has been restored to its orginal Scottish Links design. 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, undisturbed.


The Highlands course is one of the gems of the Trail. The finishing holes are scenic and challenging. One of the most recognizable landmarks on the Trail is the old mule barn beside the fifth hole.

RIVER Course Tour

The River course is laid out on former soybean fields in the flood plain of the Flint River. With water on 16 of the 18 holes, the River course will challenge your shot-making ability.


The Short Course is open and links-like, with water in play on 11 holes and a large double green accommodating the 10th and 17th greens. Alternating tees allow golfers to hit every club in their bag.
