Great Course For The Price!

Colonial is a very open and forgiving course with greens and tee boxes that are very well cared for even during the winter months. The course is a little tight so keep your head on a swivel because it is not uncommon for balls to end up in the wrong fairways.
Staff is friendly and the course is very easy to get around walking or riding. I play all the public courses in northern Alabama and you cannot find a better course for the money.

Winter Golf

Fairly pleasant winter day, a bit windy, but sunny. Course was in reasonably good condition considering the rain we've had over the last week or so, with a few muddy spots in some of the rough and around a couple of the the greens. First time we played this course so early on it was a bit hit and miss without any hole markers. Two of the holes were shorted due to repair. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful

Fall day great golf.

We had a very nice relaxing round today. It was a full course but moved along pretty well. Course is in good shape. A couple greens in rebuild, but that will be better in the spring. Take time to visit them.

Best shape I’ve ever seen it in

The course is in as good a shape as I’ve seen in the last 10 years.

Staff are great. I did get surprised by the hot deal being walking only and had to pay for a cart. But the condition of the course made it worth while.

Nice well taken care of fun course. There are just a few tee boxes where the owner needs to put zoysia.

Excellent course. Incredible staff

The course is always in great shape. The staff treats you like family which is unusual for such a great course. I would play here everyday if I could.

Social Distancing can be fun!

Colonial is open and doing everything it can to stay within the new COVID-19 regulations and still provide a round of golf to those of us who simply can't stay inside anymore! The course is in decent shape, but the greens were plugged and sanded. Didn't care! It was a great day for a round of golf. Thanks for being open!
