Designed by Bill Scarborough in 1962, Pine Hill Country Club's course wends golfers through 18 holes spread out over verdant fairways, which are dotted with ponds and lined with pine trees. The 6,357 yards of playing grounds challenges players throughout the par 72 course, including hole 17, which features a scant 250-yard drive and a green protected by a water hazard on three sides. An onsite pro shop stands ready to bolster players' gear collections with an arsenal of golf necessities, from clubs to bags of ice for nursing bruised egos.

Designed by prolific course architect Gene Bates, the 18-hole, 6,734-yard Twin Bridges Golf Club course bobs and weaves around the Coosa River and its surrounding waterways, forcing golfers to avoid hazards on 11 holes. But the most challenging hole—the 554-yard 5th hole, a par 5—showcases another course challenge: bunkers. The sand traps at 5 pinch the fairway at three different places, shrinking landing zones for drives and second shots and proving that water isn’t the only cause for concern on the course. Twin Bridges also boasts a driving range with a practice bunker and an 8,000 square-foot putting green, where golfers can get a feel for the speed of the course’s bent-grass putting surfaces. Certified as a Cooperative Sanctuary by Audubon International, Twin Bridges works to preserve its scenic setting through natural resource conservation, providing habitats for area wildlife, and building vacation homes for migratory birds. Course at a Glance: 18-hole, par 72 course designed by Gene Bates Length of 6,734 yards from the farthest tees Course rating of 72.1 from the farthest tees Slope rating of 132 from the farthest tees Four tee options

The 18 holes of Eagle Point Golf Club wind around tall forest groves and water hazards that come into play on six holes. Playing to a par of 71, the course requires golfers to steel their nerves as they size up their golf balls on the bermuda-grass fairways and execute a few key shots. These include the approach into a sand-surrounded green on the 7th hole and the tee shot entirely over water on the par 3 15th?as well as the final putt on the 18th hole, without which the round would never end. Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 17 course * Total length of 6,493 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 70.1 from the back tees * Course slope of 119 from the back tees * Four sets of tees per hole

Bunkers speckle the par 71, beckoning errant golf balls to spend the day sunbathing in their sandy beaches.

The 18 holes at Frank House Municipal Golf Course embroil golfers in a test of skills and mental toughness as they guide orbs over a lush, emerald carpet. After completing the relatively straight front nine, players must adjust aim for shots on the back nine, where all but three of the holes make severe dogleg turns. One of these doglegs, the 18th, forces players to lay up short of a lake, and then approach over its width or try to freeze it over with an icy glare. Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Total length of 6,346 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 69 from the back tees * Course rating of 119 from the back tees * Three sets of tees per hole
