1000 Country Club Dr,
Killen, Alabama 35645
Located along the banks of the Tennessee River and Wilson Lake, Turtle Point Yacht and Country Club is known not only for having one of the top golf courses in the state of Alabama, but also for its efforts to create a habitat for wildlife.
Designed by world renowned architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr., the course is known for its natural topography and challenging layout. The natural topography of the site overlooking the Tennessee River required very little earth movement. Mr. Jones simply had to reveal the masterpiece already in place. Today, it is obvious that he achieved his goal.
A golf course architect of legendary status, Robert Trent Jones, Sr. holds the acclaim as one of the most prolific and innovative course designers of all time.

During more than six decades, Jones designed or remodeled more than 500 courses in 45 states and 35 countries, with some of the world’s most famous among them. With his oft-quoted philosophy to make every hole a hard par but an easy bogey, he also had a profound impact on tournament golf.
