Golfing in Florence, Alabama
Why roll down a river when you can be rolling down a fairway in Florence, AL? A thriving river city known for blues music, fishing, and breath taking outdoor landscapes, Florence flourishes with abundant wildlife, night life, and, of course, links life. Florence is home to the inspiring Helen Keller and Golf Digest’s 27th toughest golf course, Fighting Joe, so be certain that you bring your best and expect nothing less. With much of Florence’s past and current livelihood centering around the water it only follows reason that golf courses implement ample water hazards and the mighty Tennessee River into their course design. Because Fighting Joe is the first Robert Trent Jones Trail course to break 8000 yards, travelers are recommended to bring their long sticks and then recuperate at the prestigious Marriott Shoals Hotel & Spa. Sure, any golf getaway can be fun, but come see why Florence is one of the best golf destinations around.
