Golf in Alabama
Alabama's Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail is a collection of 432 holes of championship golf on 10-sites around Alabama. Each course on the trail was designed by famed golf course architect Robert Trent Jones. They are among the best public courses in America.
North Alabama Golf
You can enjoy unexpected delights in North Alabama such as listening to bagpipers at sunset in Birmingham or playing on the third longest course in the world after dining on world-class cuisine at Alabama's only revolving restaurant in Florence. These two Robert Trent Jones courses include resorts featuring luxury guest rooms and suites, signature pools and European spas. Other Robert Trent Jones courses include Huntsville and Anniston. The Anniston course is located just two hours from the Atlanta International Airport. The Wall Street Journal said the Trail "may be the biggest bargain in the country".
Central Alabama Golf
For another great golfing holiday play three Robert Trent Jones locations in Central Alabama. Arriving from the Atlanta airport, drive only 90-minutes to the first location just inside Alabama in Opelika. The following day travel to Prattville where the RTJ course features stunning vistas along the 200-acre glistening backwaters of the Alabama River. Both the Opelika and Prattville locations feature on-site RTJ resort lodging. The third RTJ course in Central Alabama is located in Greenville, just south of Montgomery. You can play most of the RTJ courses for about $40 a round.
South Alabama Golf
Alabama's Gulf region has also gained popularity as a golfing destination. Starting in Mobile, you can play at the Magnolia Grove RTJ course while staying at the historic Battle House, a Renaissance Hotel, or the Riverview Plaza Hotel, both in downtown Mobile. Then travel across Mobile Bay to the Grand Hotel Marriott Resort, Golf Club and Spa near Fairhope. The New York Times called the Trail "some of the best public golf on earth." Besides these RTJ Trail golf choices, there is Kiva Dunes. Named the second best new course in America when it opened this is just one of the courses located in the beach resort of Gulf Shores.
