Enjoyable layout

Enjoyed the front nine and then really enjoyed the last 5-6 holes.
Has a lot of different looks.
Some classic holes.
Some big elevation.
Greens a little slow but there were in great shape.
The fairways are Bermuda that are in great shape allowing the ball to sit up perfectly.
Would definitely play here again.
Worth your money.

Hidden Gemstone

This well hidden gem of a golf course right off Hwy 79 is well worth playing as often as you can. This outstanding layout has six valley holes to get your interest peaked and warm up your game before heading uphill for eight beautifully prepared mountain holes. The folks at RTG wish they had eight upland holes in a row this good but trust me they don’t . Next you come down from the highlands to finish with four more excellent valley holes including a risk reward cut of as much water as you dare 18th finishing hole. The greens are still in perfect shape and proper speed.

Good day!

The course is average. Pretty on back 9. Short course for women. No bathroom on course. That was a huge surprise. The weather is very hot and dry so I’m sure under better circumstances it would be better. We will try again. We had a great rate. Good value!!

Fun day...

I had not played Cumberland Lakes in many years... It was well worth my return trip today.. Course is much improved and in very good condition... I really enjoyed my round... The guy in the shop could not have been nicer plus he made a mean chicken club sandwich... I have already told my friends about it... Can't wait to go back...

Best course you've never heard of.

Check this place out, can't believe I've lived in North Alabama for over 30 years and never so much as heard of this place. Scenery and layout make this one of best I've played in area. Small con for some right now, they just aerated one nine yesterday and one today. That said sand and all the greens rolled about as fast and true if not better than most of other courses right now. Can't imagine how wonderful must have been last week...or in a couple more. I don't write reviews and am rarely either particularly impressed or disappointed by most things, bit I really was impressed today. Definitely worth the slightly over an hour drive.

Playing an old friend

My wife and I were members of this golf club 35 years ago. The course has always been a challenge. The course overall is a great value for the money.. The fairways are mostly in good condition. The greens are above average and a challenge. I highly recommend it.

Great track for the price.

This was my first experience at Cumberland Lake and I will definitely be back. The course is in great shape. Tee boxes and greens were well maintained. Greens were on the slow side but still very smooth. Cumberland Lake is a very scenic course with some challenging holes. I look forward to playing here again.

Great day

The staff was very friendly and the course was in excellent shape especially as dry as it has been. The fairways are neatly cut. The rough is fair and the greens ran fast and true.

Awesome course!

I think someone new took over and they are doing a fantastic job. The greens are beautiful, the scenery is gorgeous and the layout is fun. Highly recommend it! This place is night and day from how it was my first trip there last year. Friendly staff, good food and fair prices.

Playing an old friend.

Cumberland Lake is located in a beautiful setting. The golf course is in excellent condition and a real challenge. I was a member here 30= years ago. The course is in the best condition ever. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. If you’re a golfer you owe to yourself to give it a try. Well worth the $$.

Sunny day

Greens had been aerated and sanded so I have no idea how they would normally play. The rest of the course is in excellent shape. The course is very well designed with a variety of holes. My review would be better if I had some idea how the greens normally play. The greens are small and some of them had quite a bit of slope.

My kind of place and people

Course was in really good shape given our weather these past few months! Course is nice and open but don’t let the greens fool you they look easy but have a lot more break than you think especially at the hole. Not much in terms of Amenities on the course but that’s fine, plenty of water spots. Chris the manager was great, like I said my kind of golf people here. Enjoyed a fast round under 3 hours. Not pretentious at all. I get very comfortable here.

Great Course

I played several courses while on vacation in Alabama. Cumberland was my favorite by far. Course was in great shape. The staff was very nice. The price I paid was more than worth it. I will look forward to playing there again.
