EXCLUSIVE: PGA Golf Resort Proposed For Madison County- Large Development Will Feature More Than Golf


MADISON COUNTY- Madison County could soon be home to a PGA approved golf resort according to reliable sources divulging details in an exclusive to this reporter.

According to my unnamed sources, a 1,200-1,400-acre, $100-million PGA certified project is proposed to be built along what is now Bob Wade Lane and soon to be Northern Bypass. The proposed resort will feature two 36-hole layouts, high-dollar hotels and restaurants along with housing adjacent to the golf courses. The land has yet to be purchased, but according to landowners, they have been approached by developers from Florida seeking the land, utilizing a local commercial real estate and sales company based in Madison County, and divulging some details about the development.

Huntsville is currently home to the PGA’s Korn Ferry Tour’s Hometown Lenders Championship held annually at The Ledges, the private golf course in southeast Huntsville.

I have reached out to several authorities to try and confirm the talk among landowners and golf professionals, but I have yet to hear officially from Madison County. The PGA responded by indicating any updated news is located on its website, but did not confirm nor deny the project. The City of Huntsville responded via e-mail and stated, “The planning department was contacted, and they said there are lots of rumors flying about this property that are untrue, and the golf course is one of those rumors.” Other unnamed sources have indicated the project is still up in the air, but is close to being finalized. Two of those sources indicated the project could be a PGA-TPC Resort.

According to sources, the main golf course will take up to 400 acres of the proposed project.

The PGA-TPC is part of the PGA Tour and compasses only 30 elite TPC courses in the United States and one in Mexico out of the more than 30,000 golf courses in America. Only 30 match the standards of the TPC with the closest TPC courses to Huntsville located in Memphis (Southwind) and Atlanta (Sugarloaf).

Sources have verified talk of such a development, which will mean millions to the local economy and the possibility of the resort hosting a tournament on the PGA Tour with the biggest names in professional golf arriving here for play.

Owned, operated and licensed by the PGA Tour, the TPC Network’s courses are designed by some of golf’s most elite architects. The TPC courses are known for their outstanding conditioning and amenities, as well as, a commitment to environmental excellence. Virtually all tournaments on the PGA Tour are connected to local charities with more than $3-billion has been generated all-time.

The parcels of land said to be involved are located in both the city limits of Huntsville and the jurisdiction of Madison County and are located on both the north and south sides of Bob Wade Lane just west of Memorial Parkway. The City of Huntsville would like the proposed developed to be within the City Limits and have been in conversations about the possibility of the land being annexed into Huntsville. There have been some talk the City of Huntsville is looking to possibly open a new Municipal Golf Course after closing its longtime course location off Airport Road and Memorial Parkway.

The Madison Record will stay the course of any development.
