Golfers will jump at the chance to tee off at the 18-hole championship golf course. It was designed by iconic Alabama architect Earl Stone and features challenging holes set among rolling hills and the scenic Tennessee River. The course is part of a game park, so watch for deer grazing on the greens. There's also a popular disc golf course with 18 baskets.
