The Heritage

Lake Martin’s newest luxury residential development

Adjacent to Russell Forest, The Heritage is comprised of over 1,500 acres on 12 miles of shoreline. The new development will include spectacular waterfront lots and golf course and luxury interior lots estimated to begin 2022.

As the centerpiece of The Heritage, the new 18-hole championship golf course designed by famed architect Bill Coore and golf legend Ben Crenshaw will feature unique holes designed to the natural contours, elevations and elements of the lake and land. This will be the first golf course built in Alabama since 2004 and the first Coore & Crenshaw golf course in the state.

Each hole of the course is memorable, accentuated by indigenous hardwoods, Alabama’s long leaf pines, bridges and creeks. The front nine takes players through stunning elevation changes set amongst pines and creeks. Picturesque Lake Martin dominates the vistas throughout the back nine. Groundbreaking for the golf course is underway with estimated completion in early 2023.

Course Architects

Coore & Crenshaw

Russell Lands selected Coore & Crenshaw, one of golf’s most respected architectural teams, due to their signature approach of honoring the land in their designs. This respect and love of the land is mirrored by Russell Lands. Bill Coore began his professional design and construction career under the guidance of Pete Dye and Associates. Golf legend Ben Crenshaw, known by many as “Gentle Ben,” is a two-time Masters champion. Bill and Ben established the architectural firm in 1985, based upon the shared appreciation for “Golden Era” golf architecture. Coore & Crenshaw have designed some of the world’s most celebrated courses including Kapalua Plantation Course, Sand Hills Golf Club, Friar’s Head, Cabot Cliffs and most recently, Bally Bandon Sheep Ranch.
