News and Notes: Under Armour ® / Jeff Overton Championship

Posted on Updated on

Welcome to beautiful Huntsville, Alabama, home to the Under Armour ® / Jeff Overton Championship! The AJGA returns to The Ledges for the third year in a row, joined in 2012 by Under Armour® and PGA Tour Player Jeff Overton.

LIFE ON THE LEDGE: The Ledges is one of the more unique golf courses on the AJGA circuit in that it was built entirely on a mountain overlooking Huntsville and the surrounding area. Due to the course’s elevation, every hole offers a great view down into both Jones Valley and Hampton Cove. The course itself is spread out over the mountaintop’s 750 acres, even spreading halfway down the mountain for Nos. 3-6. While the trail down to No. 3 is a long, winding one—it takes two minutes to drive in a golf cart—it offers the best views of Huntsville and Johns Valley. You can even see a rocket from the US Space and Rocket Center towering over the skyline from over 10 miles away.
