Eagle Point was nice.......probably better course from the blues. Very
nice to play a walkable course.

Thanks.....I'd like to say there is no budget constraints, I try to
keep green fees under $100. I had a friend of mine play the Farms
course last weekend, although fees were $125......that was all day
golf, cart and food and drink. He said that is was a fantastic course.
I played Eagle Point on Sunday, nice walking course.

Bent Brook in the Bessemer area is a good first class public course (3
nines, Brook, Windmill and Graveyard). On the other side of town is
Eagle Pointe, a little short but very nice. Then on the south side of
town, there is Highland Park, a very old but well kept course.

Limestone Springs is 25 miles from the Airport. Very nice.
Ballantrae is just south of town.
Farmlinks is unique. Different grass on the holes. Manicured to
perfection. SE of town
Bent Brook mentioned is west of town.
Capstone is 25 miles west of town.
The valley and ridge at Oxmoor are the Robert Trent Jones courses just 5
miles west of town.
The newest of the Robert Trent Jones courses is Ross Bridge.

It would help to know where you are staying and budget constraints if any.

Paul
