The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail makes Alabama one of the must-visit golfing states in the country. With its array of 25 championship golf courses, any golfer would crave at the thought of a state-wide golfing escapade. One of the most visited, most scenic courses on the Trail is the Lake Course at the Grand National. From the starting hole, a short but challenging introduction to what lies ahead, to the signature 15th hole that is the make or break of the course, down to the very last hole, the Lake Course promises to make a golf trip unforgettable.
The Lake Course is one of the three golf vacation destinations that make up the Grand National, along with the Links Course and the Short Course. The Lake Course at the Grand National has twelve of its eighteen holes along the glistening waters of the Lake Saugahatchee, making the holes as challenging as they are scenic. The Lake Course is famous for its par 3 15th hole. It is a 190 yard shot over the water to an island green – requires excellent club selection and the perfect shot to be able to make it past this very tricky hole. The Lake Course offers a golf view like no other on the whole trail, coupled with a great round of golf one hole after another.
With 25 Robert Trent Jones designs, the Trail definitely promises a one-of-a-kind golf vacation. And The Lake Course at the Grand National would definitely be a good place to start. It has every bit of element that makes a golf course exciting and pleasant to the golfer and a treat to the eyes for the masterful execution of a challenging golf layout.
