Capitol Hill – The Legislator

Three unique courses lay on one Capitol Hill that is located about 13 miles from north of Alabama’s state capital. The destinations are interestingly named with “legal terminologies” which are Capitol Hill – The Judge , Capitol Hill – The Legislator and Capitol Hill – The Senator. All three golf vacation courses have 18-holes with about 1,500 acres. One of them, The Legislator, was designed by the renowned golf architect, Robert Trent Jones, ASGCA/Roger G. Rulewich, ASGCA, opened in 1999. The management is lead by SunBelt Golf Corporation.

The 18-hole Capitol Hill – The Legislator located in Prattville, Alabama, showcases a 7,323 yards golf vacation destination that has the longest tees playing for par 72. With a course rating of 74.1, the place also has a slope rating of 126 on the Bermuda grass. Among the course choices in Capitol Hill, the Legislator is considered most popular on the Trail. Both golfers and golf course layout critics have positive comments on this place. The reason for that may be the traditional landscape that no one seems to complain about. On it are towering pine trees installed on the picturesque bluff and elevation changes that ranges for more than 200 feet.

Anyone would be amazed at the ‘Sky Bridge’ in Capitol Hill – The Legislator . Yes, there is a bridge winding on the sky via a cart path that transports players from one hole to another on the 6 holes laid out in a native cypress swamp. Because of the impressive golf trip display, this course received recognition as it was rated one of the ‘Top 25 New Courses’ by Golf Digest in 1999 and ‘#9 Best New Course’ by Golf Magazine.
