There’s a few reasons why Huntsville, Alabama golf courses may interest you. For one, you play golf in Huntsville because you live here. Call me captain obvious but, ok, fair enough.
The other reason is that you may be moving to Huntsville and you’d like to know what your options are as far as Huntsville, Alabama golf courses go. You may be moving here for a job, because your spouse got a job, or simply because you like Huntsville. Either way, you’re looking for more than Huntsville real estate, you’re looking at the community. And, if you’re a golfer, I’m hoping a series of posts on Huntsville golf courses will help you get acquainted with your golf options in Huntsville.
First stop – Colonial Golf Course, Meridianville, Alabama. Yes, technically Colonial Golf Course is in Meridianville, Alabama. However, it’d be silly not to include it as an option for Huntsville golf courses when the value you get is well worth the 20 minute commute.
Of all the golf courses in Huntsville, Alabama; Colonial has quickly become one of my favorites. There are reasons for that and different variables factor into why I like Colonial Golf Course so much. The first reason is price. The price does change according to the day, but you can play 18 holes with a cart at Colonial for anywhere between 23 and 31 dollars during the week. That price equals value golf in my book.
Now, there are other golf courses in Huntsville, Alabama that are just as cheap and possibly even cheaper, but you’ve got to keep the course condition in mind. Colonial Golf Course isn’t a very hard golf course. There aren’t too many bunkers and not much water. If you hit the ball straight, you’ll score well. But the biggest factors when determining the shape of a golf course, for me, are fairways and greens. Hopefully they’re are the only conditions you’ll play from! Colonial Golf Course has both of those factors down. The fairways are nice and I’m not sure I’ve seen too many rough patches on the greens. If you’re putting well, the greens will reward you just fine.
Some people may not think of this when discussing the value of a golf course, but Colonial Golf Course has some of the best carts I’ve ever driven. Seriously! I promise I could tell the difference or I wouldn’t bring it up in this post.
Last, but not least, the crew at Colonial Golf Course is comprised of top-notch, nice people.
If you’re looking for Huntsville golf courses under 35 dollars during the week, give Colonial Golf Course a try. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed and you’ll see why I consider Colonial not be cheap golf, but value golf – something most places could use more of!
