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.

The Highlands Course is one of the most picturesque and playable courses on the Trail. Long, waving grasses frame dramatically, rolling terrain and beautiful bent grass greens. Completely different from the Highlands is the River course, the only Robert Trent Jones layout in the world designed without a single bunker. The River course is a throwback to the way courses were built long ago, where dirt was merely pushed up to create the greens and tees, leaving all else, including massive oak trees, as is.



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

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. It is a great venue for golfers of all skill levels and alternating tees allow golfers to hit every club in their bag.



Relax...coordinating an event at Hampton Cove is much easier than you think!
