FarmLinks at Pursell Farms is one of those places that take your breath away with unique views and vantage points and where you feel welcomed and content, like you've just visited an old friend. It's also a place that consistently impresses, from pristine greens and immaculate fairways to luxurious comfort and hospitality like nowhere else. But what sets this place apart? And how did the world's only research and demonstration golf course end up in Sylacauga, Alabama, or where some may consider "the middle of nowhere?"
The story of FarmLinks at Pursell Farms is extraordinary and compelling. It's an account that reaches back in history more than a century and covers the many triumphs and successes of a family business blessed with dreamers and visionaries. And it's a narrative that continues today, as this farm has evolved from growing cotton and raising longhorn steer to offering educational programs for the nation's turf grass industry and to recreating itself as world-class destination resort. The FarmLinks' story begins, quite simply, with manure. This pristine, award-winning, 3,500-acre facility built its foundation on the supply, growth and technology of fertilizer products.
On the farm, David Pursell, the third generation of family leadership, had a visionary idea: to invite the product's end users (golf superintendents) to see the product firsthand. To achieve this, we built FarmLinks in 2002 as "the world's only research and demonstration golf course." Today, Pursell Farms has evolved into a premier regional family farm resort available for Alabama corporate retreats, leisure getaways and weddings. Our corporate and family mission is to give, grow and honor. We give 10% of profits to ministries and charities here and around the world. We grow to provide our guests with a superior experience. We honor the family name in all that we do.Visit site >
