My wife and I just played our first Robert Trent Jones Trail course. In Opelika, Grand National is a true pleasure just to be on. Immaculate fairways that have left to right and back again construction, pure white sand bunkers, and greens that stimp about 12-13. You MUST be on the downside of the pin, or three and four putts...

I have played many different golf courses and am always surprised at how well you are treated by the staff on the Robert Trent Jones trail. The courses are in great condition and a pleasure to play.

Two great 18 hole courses at very reasonable prices, especially for active and retired military. One of the courses is good enough to host a PGA tournament this month (July 2015). There's also an 18 hole executive course and a bar and restaurant to enjoy with your friends.

What an amazing place to play golf. Take an amazing weekend of Auburn football and golf and you have a winning combination. This course plays long, so bring your best game.

The Lakes is a very scenic course with a lot of views of the water. The slope and rating are not quite as high as the Links course. The links course is not your typical links course. It is hillier than the Lakes course. Both are a treat to play and certainly can test your game. The staff is very... More

This was our first round of golf on the Robert Trent Golf Trail. We had a beautiful and enjoyable round of golf at Grand National Lakes Course. It helped that the weather was perfect and we enjoyed the couple we were paired with during the round. This is a beautiful course. The course was in excellent condition although reading the... More

Played the Lakes course as the Links had been aerated weeks before, during the dormant season. This was winter golf and yet it was a pleasure to play. The vistas on the Lake course are terrific and the par 3's need not take a back seat to any par 3's in the country. Speaking of which, for an additional $20... More

This definitely was fantastic! After eating a phenomenal lunch in the clubhouse, we were in for a treat with the lakes course. There was a lot of construction and maintenance occurring, but understandably they were in full gear preparing for the PGA Tour event that will be here in July. Some Fantastic views of Lake Saugahatchee, including an island green... More

the food in the clubhouse was great. I would perfer that all users of the par 3 course use a cart. This would speed up play because most users of a par 3 is trying to get a round in pretty quickly.

The course and facilities are beautiful and align with the expectations for the highly advertised RTJ Trail. However, the unfriendly and unhelpful attitude of everyone we encountered during our visit made this a very bad experience. We expected much better customer service for this type of venue, especially given the premium rates. It is quite a drive from Atlanta to... More
