Wicker Point Golf Club ( C&C) in Alexander City, Alabama
« on: November 22, 2023, 10:17:51 AM »
Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw’s first course design in Alabama, Wicker Point Golf Club, has opened for member play. Located on Lake Martin in Alexander City, 70 miles southeast of Birmingham, Wicker Point is the centerpiece of a 1,500-acre development called The Heritage and created by Russell Lands.
Coore and Crenshaw’s routing zigzags partially through heavily wooded terrain, primarily hardwoods and pines, and along the fingers and coves of Lake Martin. Portions of nine holes will edge the water. The front nine features pronounced elevation changes, while the back nine mostly revolves around the shoreline.
"The lake has so many inlets that it creates hundreds and hundreds of miles of shoreline," said Coore during construction. "I have heard that there is as much water frontage on Lake Martin as there is in the whole of California. But it’s all ins and out, and it is very, very beautiful. The shoreline is very broken, with coves, and inlets and peninsulas."
Built on red clay, the course features Zeon Zoysia grass for approaches, tees, fairways and roughs and TifEagle Bermudagrass on the greens.
