I have to be honest because I've never been to Alabama before this trip and was not sure what to expect. First, it was an easy flight from the NYC metro area into Atlanta and then a 2 hour drive or so into Sylacauga. Upon arriving, our group was welcomed like we were family and directed to our house which...

Hi Lou D, Thanks for your kind review! Typically October is one of our best golf months but indeed you are right, we are in an extreme drought situation. Still are... However, our grounds crew team is doing amazing work keeping the greens rolling true and the course playing great. Thanks again for all the great words, Lou! We work...

I had never cast a fly rod before my experience with Orvis at Pursell Farms. After one day of training, I not only could cast, but I caught two fish! No equipment needed so it is the best way to try a potential hobby before making investments in equipment. The staff, amenities, and training were top notch. I'm considering the...

I am usually generous and maybe overly effusive with my praise of the places we visit. As long as the service is courteous and the attempts to impress are genuine, I can look the other way about the little things. As far as golf and lodging is concerned, Pursell Farms delivered on the promises made by friends who so highly...

My visit to Pursell Farms was solely for golf. Although several other features exist such as shooting range and group facilities, I did not experience them. The farm is extensive and the property is wonderfully appointed. The golf course and staff are on point. I thoroughly enjoyed the golf and the layout of the course. There were several holes that...

My experience at the farm was incredible every step of the way. The golf was great - excellent conditions, spaced out tee times so not over crowded, and really fun par 3s.

A little more than 1 1/2 hours from Birmingham, AL is a great course seemingly tucked in the middle of nowhere. However, take the time to find it and play.
