Clubhouse staff was great and the facility is very nice, but I walk golf courses and struggle with courses that are built for golf carts. There are many courses on the RTJ Trail; this was one and done for me because it is not walkable.

We visited these courses as part of a package on the Robert Trent golf trail. Wonderful golf, staff very friendly and helpful, prices moderate although we hit there in a cold spell. Highly recommend the golf experience.

We didn’t eat here but played in a sectional tennis tournament here. The place is immaculate and beautiful. Golf course looked fabulous. Tennis clay courts were very well maintained. Staff was friendly. Please note they have a major update of construction going on.

I play at Grand National every chance I get. The courses are all 3 lovely and different from one another. The Lake course wraps around Saugahatchee in Opelika, AL. The Links is just what you'd expect. Wide, but forgiving fairways. The short course is an...More

My friend and I played this course as the starting point for a trip on the RTJ trail. We played the lake course which was shorter. Shorter but not without challenge. Views are lovely and sand traps are everywhere. The course was well maintained.
