Simply breathtaking

I have had the pleasure of playing numerous courses in Alabama incl. several RTJ courses. This is the best course by light years as far as greens, fairways, etc... Actually had to feel the grass because it looked and felt like AstroTurf!! For the money, hands down it doesn't get better. Staff is extremely friendly and clubhouse resembles a Cracker Barrel. The best kept greens and fairways, and if you play it once you will be there twice!! Well worth any drive to get there!!' Par 3's very tough due to elevations but that just adds to the fun!

Amazing Day

Farmlinks was in near-perfect condition, awesome layout, true Southern hospitality. We drove over an hour to get there but it was well worth the trip...we really didn't want the round to end!

Magnificent Course

This course is truly a pleasure to play! From the incredibly friendly staff to the delectable double cheeseburger, this place is more of an experience than just a round of golf. The tee boxes looked fake they were so perfect! Even though the greens were punched at the first of the month they still rolled true and surprisingly smooth. I will definitely be back and always recommending to friends and clients since the first time I played the course 5 years ago.

With no marshall to keep people moving groups of 6 and 8 were playing together. Really slowing down the pace of play.

Very fun, wide open course

Beautiful course with tons of room off the tee and some very interesting holes with a lot of variety throughout. The par 3s are quite dramatic and, in some cases, play significantly downhill. The par 5s are rather straightforward and do not require a ton of strategy (hit it as far as you can) and I found the par 4s to have the most variability. This is one of the most enjoyable rounds of golf I have played given the fact that you can be a little loose off the tee and still have a good angle into most greens. The fairways were in excellent condition. The bunkers were a little washed out (particularly on hole 17) and I was surprised how many golfers had clearly not fixed their pitchmarks as most of the greens were quite marked up. The greens were slowish and did not break a great deal which I actually enjoyed because you could be rather aggressive with your putts. Love this course and if they got people to fix their ballmarks I would say it is a perfect golf experience.

Great Course

I really enjoyed this course. Excellent practice area with range, sand traps and greens. Course was very playable and in excellent shape. The beverage cart came by often and the staff were very nice. Would definitely play here again.

Very Special Place!

Farmlinks at Pursell Farms is an unbelievable place. The course is fairly playable but with tee options that can challenge even the biggest hitters. The course is always in tip top condition and the practice facility is best in class. After the round you'll definitely miss out if you don't go by the Inn where the pub is and have a cocktail or cold beer -- the place is as nice as every exclusive country club I've ever been too.
