The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Grand National is in Opelika, Georgia, about an hour northeast of Montgomery. Grand National, by all reports, was the single greatest site for a golf complex that Robert Trent Jones, Sr. had ever seen. Built on 600-acre Lake Saugahatchee, 32 of the 54 holes drape along its filigreed shores. Grand National was ranked the top public golf course in the 2009 Golf World Readers' Choice awards; its three courses are also listed among the nation's 40 Super Value courses by Golf Digest's Places to Play. With 12 of its 18 holes hugging the shoreline of Lake Saugahatchee, Grand National's Lake Course is every bit as scenic as it is challenging. Its quartet of par 3s may be as good as any in the nation, and its picturesque, 230-yard 15th hole, with an island green, is the facility's signature hole; it may be the single prettiest hole on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Golf Digest named the Lake Course the 4th best new public course in America in 1993. It's also in the top 10 of Golf Digest's list of America's Top 50 Affordable Courses.
