I thought golf trails had themes, generally a common course architect (or architectural fimr, anyway). "Golf Courses in the Same State" hardly makes a "trail." On this logic, there are at least 50 "golf trails" in the country -- lots more in big states. Talk about arbitrary, and, as you say, likely driven by
ads or press releases from state tourism bureaus.

There is no rhyme or reason (or logic for that matter) to golf trails. Somewhere in marketing antiquity a lame brain decided the words were catchy. Last Sept I wasinvited to play the newest course on Idaho's golf trail - the northern part. There's also a central and a southern, you see.

The whole concept is totally out of control.

Having just returned from another trip to the RTJ Golf Trail, I'll have to say this one's worth the effort.

The Bear Trace courses in TN are not, in my opinion, because Nicklaus can't make a course user friendly. Can't or won't, I'm not sure of which one of those is true.

I've only played one other 'Trail" and those are here in my state of Kentucky and involve the KY State Park Golf Courses, which have undergone major facelifts, new courses and renovations.

Incredibly affordable and well worth the time to travel around my state to play.

So, RonMon, it may just be that you're kinda right !

"Kinda right" from Mike is like God blessing me with manna from Heaven.

Based on my trip there last year, I'd say RTJ Golf Trail is one of the best values in the country. We played a different course 8 days in a row and they were all at least "very good". What I'll do differently on my next trip is to play fewer courses, and play them 2 times each - both for enjoyment of playing as well as remembering the courses better. And make sure to play ALL of the short courses - they are also incredibly good.
