Best Golf Course in the State

This is hands down the best golfing experience I have had! The staff was great! The practice facilities were top notch! The fairways were in perfect condition! The greens were large and in charge! They had chilled apples waiting for us at the beginning of 1 and 10! The holes were beautifully designed! The par 3 5th hole is the best single hole I have ever played! I have nothing bad to say about this course! I will definitely be back and cannot wait until that time comes! Thank you FarmLinks

Friday outing

Greens had been aerated which made putting very difficult. Wish we had known that in advance. Will come back but will check condition of Greens before driving 1.5 hours.

love the farm

When we teed off, the conditions were perfect. Then, we hit No. 15 and the skies emptied on us. We played 15 through a steady drizzle, got a break on 16 and 17, then got drenched on 18. But it was still a great time. My only complaint? Someone playing ahead of us had trouble picking his fee up, leaving drag marks and scuffs all over the greens. And the greens close to the holes were pretty chewed up. I just wish people would learn how to repair a ball mark ...

Amazing Conditions, Immaculately Groomed Course!

If you are in the Fairway, the Lie is Always Ideal. Greens Roll Very True at a Smooth Speed that’s Fair and Consistent!
If you want to play one of the Best in Alabama, make Sure to ADD Farm Links to your List.

Great course for various levels of skill

Great course that is a little off the beaten path. The course is always in fantastic shape and is a great place to play regardless off your skill level. They had an amateur tournament going on with an older group that really made play slow.,,nearly a five hour round. Overall, I love the course and look forward to playing again.

Front side fairways were wet and soggy. Pace of play was very slow, players hitting multiple tee shots on every hole. Golf cart said we were 15 minutes behind, no marshal to manage course,. Round took 5 +hours. Cart path only.

Absolutely a great course to play for all skill levels. I shot my personal best and the round only took about 2 hours and 45 minutes.

A great golf course

It had rained 4.5 inches the day before we played. I was astonished at how well the course had drained and how playable it was. Only real effect we saw was the sand traps were washed out.

Awesome time. Slightly congested but that’s just because of everyone pausing to take pictures of the amazing landscape.

Really enjoyed the day!

Of course anytime you play in the winter you have to allow for those pesky seasonal conditions. Overall the course was in very decent shape unfortunately i played on a day soon after the greens were sanded which definitely impacted the score on a few holes. The dormant tight lies around the green were brutal as was the sand, but moral of that story I should have hit the green and not had to worry about those issues!! Nonetheless, I really liked the course layout, for the most part it was quite forgiving off the tee and there were ‘good’ places to miss on the approach (minus the aforementioned tight lies of course!). I can imagine the greens could be quite challenging on a summer day because of all of the undulations, so I definitely need to come back! Loved the course, would definitely recommend and will play again when I am in the area.

Oh, almost forgot, they have a couple elevated Par 3’s where you will definitely need a device that accounts for elevation change and wind, I think it was #15 that was showing over 200 on the scorecard but played about 140! What a beautiful hole!
