Played golf on a fine December morning on the Links Course. It was cart path only due to all the rain. There was a couple of groups ahead of us with perfect flow as we played in about four hours and twenty minutes which I thought was outstanding considering all of the walking to and from cart. They were doing... More

We played the Lake Course twice and the Links once. If you pass by, it's worth the detour. Conditions were fantastic. Staff was wonderful

This stop on the RTJ has two very good golf courses, a great practice area, and wonderful staff. We attended a couples tournament, and the has a great experience. The links course is nice (though not a true links style course). But the "Lake Course" is the gem. They now play a PGA tour event on this course. I'll definitely... More

I just started playing golf this year but have already learned to love the RTJ courses. The links and lakes courses at Grand National are both beautiful courses. They are extremely well maintained. The workers on the course have all been very friendly as well as those in the clubhouse and bar. Since we are local, we have taken advantage... More

The one time Crown Jewel of the RTR Gof Trail courses did not play Grand. Not sure if the course is suffering from too much play or not enough care. We had a range of golf ability in our groups and it was unanimous that this course was not set up for the average golfer. Very taxing physically. The RTR... More

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.
