Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail's Grand National in Alabama a terrific value
The 54-hole Grand National complex in Opelika has to be one of the better deals in the South, and on the Robert Trent Jones Trail. Both the Lake and Links courses are excellent layouts, set well back in the east Alabama hills, with good elevation changes and terrific views of the big Lake Saugahatchee and surrounding countryside.
Green fees here are in the $55 range, about half of what you’d pay in many other parts of the country, especially for a Robert Trent Jones designed course. Jones allegedly said this was one of the best areas he’d ever seen for a golf course, and it’s easy to see why.
There are several other courses around, which I, as a service to my legions of loyal readers, will be checking out soon. Look for the full Grand National stories to be coming soon, as well as the rest.
