About Willow Point Golf and Country Club
In 1964, the last of the Russell Farms cattle farms, locally known as "the Wedges Farms," (having once been a farm where workers were hired for "wages") was chosen as the location of the Willow Point Golf and Country Club.
This beautiful championship 18-hole golf course meanders about on a peninsula totally surrounded by Lake Martin. Designed by Thomas Nichol, the par 72 course was constructed as a private club to replace the original course, which was given by the Russell family to the State of Alabama for the site of the Alexander City Junior College (now Central Alabama Community College).
In October 2003, Willow Point re-opened exactly one year after the course closed for renovation. Originally conceived to update the irrigation system, greens, bunkers and tees, the decision was made to totally renovate the entire course, including the practice facility, entry road and clubhouse. The world-renown architectural firm of Hurdzan/Fry was selected based on their reputation for designing some of the most beautiful, challenging and environmentally sound golf courses in the world.
Today, the course measures 7,465 yards from the championship tees, and includes six sets of tees to accommodate all levels of play. Twelve holes are located along the shores of Lake Martin – and all 18 holes have a view of the lake. The Bermuda fairways are accented by native grasses, and tall fescue, as well as stone and rock work bordering the lake.
