Make it Your Heritage – Luxury Waterfront Living on Lake Martin

The Heritage from Russell Lands is the newest luxury lakeside development on Alabama’s Treasured Lake Martin.

Among Lake Martin’s nearly 900 miles of shoreline surrounding over 40,000 acres of pristine water sits Russell Lands—a community comprised of more than a dozen luxury waterfront neighborhoods, four lakefront marinas, over 100 miles of nature trails, world-class golf, amphitheater, and a town center. Russell Crossroads, the heartbeat of the Russell Lands community, is where it all comes together with a diner, fine-dining restaurant, specialty market, café, equestrian center, wildlife naturalist, adventure center, and seasonal entertainment. Residents and guests escape it all to connect with family and friends over a cup of coffee, fresh pastry, and live music in a space reminiscent of a simpler time.

Russell Lands’ The Heritage is Lake Martin’s newest and most exclusive address. The master-planned community offers homeowners a chance to reconnect with family and friends and the thrilling opportunity to make Lake Martin their heritage for generations to come. The Heritage presents roughly 240 waterfront homesites and 130 beautifully wooded interior lots spread across 1,500 acres on 12 miles of shoreline. Nestled between gently rolling forests and shimmering lake beaches and shoreline, some of the largest luxury homesites on the lake are found here. What’s more, recreation is definitely world-class.

Wicker Point—the newest Coore & Crenshaw waterfront golf course

The centerpiece of The Heritage is Wicker Point Golf Club—the only Coore & Crenshaw-designed private golf course in Alabama. Set adjacent to Wicker Point peninsula along the stunning shores of Lake Martin, Wicker Point Golf Club is a private course defined by serene pine plantations, meandering creeks and spectacular lakefront holes comprising the back nine. The unmatched 18-hole course celebrates the land’s unique beauty, topography and serenity. The course will be challenging to the seasoned golfer while fun for the casual player. Each hole is memorable unto itself, accentuated by indigenous hardwoods, Alabama’s long leaf pines, rambling creeks crossed by bridges, and more. The front nine carries players through stunning elevation changes amid the forest while picturesque Lake Martin highlights the vistas throughout the back nine.

The course features luxurious Zeon Zoysia grass for approaches, tees, fairways and rough and fine-textured TifEagle Bermudagrass on the greens, accentuated by bunkers with native central Alabama sand. In addition to the native forests lining the holes, out-of-play areas are plentiful with indigenous grasses and wildflowers. To preserve and encourage the growth of these species, Russell Lands worked in conjunction with Alabama Wildlife Federation’s Claude Jenkins, a recipient of the National Wildlife Federation’s National Conservation Leadership Award.

Members of the private golf club are treated to a championship layout with unparalleled views of Lake Martin. The Clubhouse provides an authentic lake experience with its wraparound porch and epicurean dining, further enhanced by an expertly curated Golf Shop and innovative practice facility.

The Benjamin waterfront residential lake club scheduled to open summer 2025

Beyond world-class golf, a signature amenity in The Heritage community is The Benjamin lake club, under construction and scheduled to open to residents summer 2025. Exclusive to property owners, the resident-owned lake club is a gathering experience for all to enjoy. Designed by renowned Atlanta-based Cooper Carry, The Benjamin seamlessly integrates indoor and outdoor recreation. The clubhouse will include a large, indoor event space with catering kitchen and event bar, a fully equipped fitness facility, and gorgeous lake views from covered verandas. The Benjamin grounds offer gorgeous saline pools, a modern grill facility, eight tennis courts, a full tennis pro-shop and eight pickleball courts. The Heritage residents will enjoy a beautiful event lawn, covered pavilions, firepits, picturesque waterfront beach area and a community dock complex.

After an overwhelming response to the two initial property releases, Russell Lands has announced the development of two new offerings. The first is a collection of roughly 30 waterfront estate homesites, set to release late this spring, and the other is a small enclave of five waterfront and four interior homesites alongside the newly opened Wicker Point Golf Club.
