Who'd ever think you'd find the best golf city in America right in the middle of a big football town in a bigger football state? But that's exactly why you should look! In the twin cities of Auburn and Opelika, Alabama, where being the 2010 NCAA national football champions might be the best thing we're currently known for, golf is almost as big a passion. You'll see it everywhere you look: in the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail's stunning 54 holes of 4 1/2-star golf at Grand National, a site that more than lives up to Jones' description as the best for golf he'd ever seen.
Auburn-Opelika, Alabama: Golf Digest's #1 golf city in America and the home of the #1 public course in the US. Stay and play packages available to suit every taste and budget.
Located 15 minutes north of Montgomery, Capitol Hill features three 18-hole championship courses. With more than 1,500 acres of golf and nature, the pure magnitude of this facility is amazing and allows each course to be drastically different from the others.
The 26 public courses on Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail feature 468 holes at 11 locations across Alabama. The Trail's long list of accolades includes recognitions for both value and quality. Since opening in 1992, more than 12 million rounds of golf have been played on the Trail.
Nestled on the beautiful Fort Morgan peninsula between Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, rests one of Alabama's most spectacular golf resorts - Peninsula Golf and Racquet Club. Rated 4.5 stars by Golf Digest and selected as one of the "most memorable and enjoyable" courses in the southeast, Peninsula provides a golfing experience that is rivaled by few.
The Auburn-Opelika area is home to the world-renowned Robert Trent Jones Trail, which features two 18-hole championship courses and one 18-hole short course. The amenities at Grand National include a practice range, putting greens, a fully stocked golf shop, locker rooms, restaurant/lounge and on-site lodging. The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Grand National was recognized in 2008 as the nation's number one public golf course.
In the heart of downtown Birmingham, Highland Park is the oldest course in Alabama. At just over 5,800 yards, the historic course is still a challenge, with rolling topography, stonewall creek beds, ponds and great city views, providing great beauty and definition to this course. Highland Park is the site of one of Bobby Jones's first victories at age 14.
The Kiva Dunes Golf Course winds around our secluded property, creating a challenging yet enjoyable experience. The layout was created by Jim Edgemon, the property's developer, and longtime friend and former U.S. Open Champion Jerry Pate. The two share a love of the sport, which led to the partnership that resulted in the #1 course in Alabama: Kiva Dunes.
The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Ross Bridge is just two miles from the existing 54-hole complex at Oxmoor Valley in Birmingham, but it is light years away from the expected or ordinary. A big, muscle-bound course, its 18 holes sprawling over 330 acres and stretching almost 8,200 yards from the back tees, Ross Bridge is big and brawny, yet inviting to golfers of all skill levels. Ross Bridge plays host to the annual Regions Charity Classic presented by Bruno's Supermarkets.
The Shoals lies between the Wheeler and Wilson dams on the Tennessee River. Wheeler Dam is named in honor of General Joseph "Fighting Joe" Wheeler - the only Confederate General to attain the same rank later in the United States Army. General Wheeler's intense desire to show that Southerners could be counted on as citizens of the U.S. prompted him to volunteer, at age 62, for service in the Spanish-American War.
The east championship course at The Shoals is named after General Wheeler. Fighting Joe was the first Trail course to break 8,000 yards, measuring 8,092 yards from the Black tees. It's long, really long, and this links style course is simply good straight-forward golf. Some say the spectacular 17th hole is the signature hole on the course, but the 18th green overlooking Wilson Lake on the Tennessee River will distract you with its beauty, if not its treachery.
Coastal Alabama Golf Trips feature signature golf courses along or near the Alabama Coast of the Gulf of Mexico along with multiple lodging options - hotels, condos and beach houses. The beauty of the area is overwhelming, white sand beaches next to bright blue water of the Gulf of Mexico along with top of the line golf to provide your golf group with an unbelievable golfing experience.
Pursell Farms is proud to announce that FarmLinks Golf Club is Golfweek's #1 all-access golf course in the state. From the tips, it is as challenging as any layout on Alabama's Robert Trent Jones Trail. The difference is that FarmLinks is highly playable and rewards good shot making.
