About The Trail.
 
 
The brainchild of Founder – John R. Carpenter, Sr. The business model of our unique private golf club stands tall with time since its opening in 1964. Our name is derived from east-west National Scenic Byway on which we rest (Hwy US 60) a stage road known as The Midland Trail.  
 
A parkland/links design course rest in the valley of eastern Jefferson County farmland. The vista from the clubhouse and first tees are truly “million dollar” views.  
 
The facility was designed by Pioneer of Golf Architecture, Edward Lawrence Packard. Along with the founder’s vision and The Packard Formula … a truly playable course was laid out for the membership to enjoy.  
 
A protégé of early 40’s/50’s course designer Robert Bruce Harris, Packard utilized large multi canted greens and bunkers built into mounds to challenge players to navigate strategically thru the 6800+ yard layout. As he always does on course designs, he left his signature, with his Double Dogleg, Par 5, Hole #5.  
 
The Trail as members fondly refers to it. We are proud to be home to a design of an architect at the forefront of the post WWII golf explosion. It is truly a design that fits Packard’s mission, “To Enjoy The Game”.
