The Grand National Golf Complex is a treasure chest of dramatic Alabama scenery and great golfing challenge. Of the many gems it holds, the Links Course at the Grand National is the crown jewel. With its perfect mix of picturesque sights and challenging holes, it’s no wonder why golfers who visit Alabama dig the Links course over and over. It is their top choice for a golf vacation destination.
The Grand National is part of the 25 championship golf courses designed by Robert Trent Jones. These 25 golf trip spots are spread all over the state of Alabama and make up the famous Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. The Grand National Complex is composed of two other golf courses apart from the Links course namely the Lake Course and the Short Course. Avid golfers and visitors of the Trail find the most challenging and strongest finishing hole in the scenic Links Course at the Grand National. They come back to and love the difficulty posed by this par-4 18th hole that requires a carry to the corner of the Lake. One shot is satisfyingly easy to conquer but makes the golfer think more than twice on how to tackle that next shot.
The well manicured greens, fully stocked golf pro shop and friendly staff are all the other things that make the Links Course at the Grand National a precious pick for that golf vacation. With all these amenities, visitors of this championship par-72 course will also feel as precious a gem as the course itself.
