3000 Robert Trent Jones Trail
Opelika, AL 36801
334-749-9042 | Website | Tee Times
Grand National, by all reports, was the single greatest site for a golf complex Robert Trent Jones, Sr. had ever seen. Built on Lake Saugahatchee, 32 of the 54 holes drape along its filigreed shores. The cornerstone of the complex is the Links Course, which is without a single weakness. The par-four 18th might be the strongest finishing hole on the Trail. The drive must carry a corner of the lake, while the approach is played to a shallow pedestal green shored up by boulders.
With 12 holes hugging the shore, Grand National's Lake Course is every bit as scenic as the Links. Not only is the quartet of par threes as good as any in the nation, the 230-yard, island green 15th may be the single prettiest hole on the Trail.
The Short Course is a thing of beauty, with more than half the holes touching the lake. This 18-hole course of one-shotters might be the finest anywhere on the planet, according to some golf writers.
Grand National has been the host site for such notable events as the 1997 Nike Tour Championship, 1998 LPGA Tournament of Champions, and the 2000 NCAA Men's Division I Golf Championship.
