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.

John Hunt and pioneers 3. Cotton comes to Huntsville 4. Civil War 5. Reconstruction 6. Spanish American War and Buffaloe ...more »
