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. The cornerstone of the complex is the Links Course. There isn't a weak hole on the entire course. Its par four 18th hole is without a doubt the strongest finishing hole on the Trail: the drive must carry a corner of Lake Saugahatchee, while the approach is played to a shallow pedestal green shored up by boulders on the lakes edge. Golf Digest named the Links Course the 2nd 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.
