At 1,582 feet, the highest point in Huntsville, The Ledges offers an 18-hole championship golf course like no other in Alabama. 

The award winning course was designed by Hurdzan/Fry GCD, Inc., and first opened in 2000. In 2003, Designer Mike Hurdzan was named Designer of the Year by Golf Magazine for his work at The Ledges. He was also chosen as the recipient of the 2013 Old Tom Morris Award by the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America. 

The goal of The Ledges developers was to preserve the mountain’s natural beauty while creating a world-class golf course. Of the 750 acres set for development, 450 acres were set aside as a natural green belt protecting it from future development. 250 acres of the land are now a nationally recognized golf course, while 150 acres are used for the mountain’s residential development. 

Golf members will experience breathtaking views of the valley, downtown Huntsville and even the Space and Rocket Center. 

Bent grass greens, Zoysia fairways and Bermuda rough make up the landscape of the course. Designed with 5 different tee sets, sculpted greens and fairways and challenging bunkers, the course offers golfers of all skill levels an outstanding golf experience. 

The USGA rates the course for a scratch player at 74.9 and handicaps are adjusted via a slope rating of 137 which nears the top of the max 155 value.
