Corporate groups enjoy heading to Pursell Farms, near Sylacauga, Ala., because they can
get away from the hustle and bustle by traveling just one hour from Birmingham, Ala., or
two hours from Atlanta, according to Marketing Director Tim Spanjer.
Set on 3,000 acres in a scenic, rural landscape and surrounded by hilly terrain, Pursell
Farms features the FarmLinks Golf Club, named Golfweek's #1 all-access golf course in
the state in 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2015. Sculpted out of scenic farmland, the course by
Hurdzan-Fry Environmental Golf Design features a mix of dramatic elevation changes,
pristine fairways and immaculate greens, Spanjer said.
"One of the fun things about being here is that there are a few different types of accom-
modations, including a lodge, cottages, cabins and a guest house, and they all come with
golf carts, so once you're here, you park your car and get around by golf cart," he said.
In addition to setting up golf tournaments for groups, Pursell Farms has a number
of great recreational activities that provide fun experiences for participants, according
"If golf is not something people want to do, they can go fishing, hunting or shoot
clays," he said. "The Orvis Shooting Grounds at Pursell Farms offer guidance and
instruction. We also have a 12-station sporting clays course that groups really enjoy.
Each station features a different type of target. We have cane pole fishing
competitions and poker runs." n
