Huntsville Country Club is a Private 18 hole golf course located in Huntsville, Alabama.
Huntsville Country Club was chartered in 1925 and opened as a 9-hole golf course. The course was expanded to 18 holes in 1933. Within sixteen years of doubling up on the south nine, and especially after the new clubhouse was built in 1949, serious thought was turned to rebuilding a new eighteen-hole course. The first step was to get enough property. In 1950, G.W. Jones & Sons, local consulting engineers, was commissioned to prepare a topographic map of the property which included two additional tracts, the 40-acre Clay tract, and the 11.5-acre Prince tract. The Clay property was purchased in 1950, followed by the Prince tract that was bought in 1955. Robert Bruce Harris, golf course architect and engineer, began preparing plans for the eighteen-hole golf course, and work began on the new course with the excavation of the lake in the summer of 1958. Play then began in the fall of 1959.
Par for the course is 71. From the back tees, the course plays to 6,483 yards. From the forward tees, the course measures 4,811 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 14, a par-5 that plays to 552 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 4, a par-3 that plays to 151 yards from the back tees.
Watch out for # 12, a 419-yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 4, a 151 yard par-3.
