RTJ GOLF TRAIL AT GRAND NATIONAL
AUBURN/OPELIKA | 54 HOLES
Voted the #1 public golf facility in America by
the readers of Golf World, Robert Trent Jones,
Sr. is on record saying that Grand National
was the single greatest natural site for golf
he had ever seen. Grand National is built
on 600-acre Lake Saugahatchee with 32 of
the 54 holes draped along its filigreed shores. National Village, a golfing community on the
Trail, is adjacent to these courses.
With countless awards and recognition from every major golf publication, Grand National stands out as perhaps the only property in the country to host the following events and tours: NCAA D1 Men's and Women's National Championships; LPGA Tour; Symetra Tour (LPGA); Korn Ferry Tour (PGA TOUR); PGA TOUR.
The Couples Classic takes place each fall and is limited to the first 96 teams.
COURSES AT GRAND NATIONAL
LAKE Course Tour
With 12 holes hugging the shore, Grand National's Lake course is every bit as scenic as the Links. Not only is the quartet of par threes on the Lake as good as any in the nation, the 230-yard, island green 15th may be the single prettiest hole on the Trail.
The cornerstone of the complex is the newly renovated Links course, which is without a single weakness. Featuring new tees, bunkers, and the very best TifEagle Ultradwarf greens, the Links is a definite must-play along the Trail. The par-4 18th is without a doubt the strongest finishing hole on the Trail. The drive must carry a corner of the lake, while the approach is played to a shallow pedestal green shored up by massive boulders.
The Short Course, not to be overshadowed by the two championship 18's, is a thing of beauty, with more than half the holes touching the lake. This 18-hole course of par 3's might be the finest anywhere in the country.
