Gunter’s Landing is between Huntsvile and Gadsden on Route 1 on the north side of Guntersville Lake, midway between Chattanooga and Birmingham off I-59. In a state dominated by one of the most prolific golf course architects with the Robert Trent Jones Trail, here’s the one and only design by owner/developer Jimmy Kennamer. It plays to 6,883 yards, 148 slope from the back tees, but with four shorter sets of tees. It’s a very scenic layout routed over the hills and forested property along Lake Guntersville on Buck Island in the foothills of the Appalachians.
The routing at Gunter’s Landing Golf Course provides complete isolation as each hole is carved through the forests and homesites. The greens are excellent, quick and undulationg. A number of the holes run downhill with elevated tees…there’s nothing better than watching your tee ball sail forever! Some great par 3′s, a lot of uphill/downhill approach shots are required, it’s a scenic layout but target golf where course management is required.
