About RTJ Golf Trail @ Grand National
Grand National is part of Alabama’s Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Our facility includes 54 holes of golf, including two championship golf courses, an 18-hole par 3 course and practice facility.
Grand National, by all reports, was the single greatest site for a golf complex Robert Trent Jones, Sr. had ever seen. Built on 600-acre Lake Saugahatchee, 32 of the 54 holes drape along its filigreed shores. Both the Links and the Lake course were in the top 10 of Golf Digest’s list of “America’s Top 50 Affordable Courses” and all three courses at Grand National are listed among the nation’s 40 Super Value courses by Golf Digest’s “Places to Play”.
