Is Huntsville the only city on the RTJ Golf Trail that does not have an adjacent hotel? I am not a golfer, but it seems that there would be a market in Big Cove for another hotel, especially one proximal to the Hampton Cove Golf Course. The Hampton Inn in on 431 seems heavily used, and it would be nice to have another option in the area, particularly for people that are interested in playing golf in one of Alabama's premier amenities, hosting a small conference, or enjoying a spa day. Surely there are 5-10 non-floodplain acres available to build a mid-sized hotel with a pool, spa, and some meeting rooms... Let's increase tourism citywide, provide lodging choice in Big Cove, and help our state retirement accounts!
