After months of accepting submissions for a name that combines all six Alabama State Parks golf courses into a single trail, a name has been chosen, The Parks Path, an Alabama Golf Destination. The courses will also be rated, sloped and handicapped for the Golf Handicap and Information Network (GHIN) system.
Also new to Alabama State Parks golf experience is the Parks Path Golf Card, which allows players to receive a discount off green fees at any of the six courses in the trail. The cards will be available for purchase at the Joe Wheeler, Oak Mountain, Lakepoint, Roland Cooper, Gulf, and Lake Guntersville pro shops.
“The Park’s Path is both fun and challenging, while providing an affordable alternative to private courses,” said Randy Jinks, marketing manager for Alabama State Parks. “The trail’s name was chosen by combining various suggestions that were submitted through alapark.com.”
