Highland Park is the site of one of Bobby Jones’s first victories at age 14.
Cider Ridge, Oxford: Also near Birmingham (and the famous NASCAR track, Talladega), a former apple orchard is now a mountainside golf course with virtually every natural element in play.
North River Yaght Club, Tuscaloosa: The 18-hole, par 71 course was originally designed by Gary Player in 1978 and re-designed by Bob Cupp in 1999 and 2015.
