The Golf

RTJ Golf Trail at Grand National Golf Club

Built around the 600-acre Lake Sougahatchee, Grand National Golf Club boasts a total of 54 holes of championship golf across three challenging, yet beautiful courses at our golf resort in Auburn, AL.

Grand National, by all reports, was the single greatest site for a golf complex Robert Trent Jones, Sr. had ever seen. Built on 600-acre Lake Saugahatchee, 32 of the 54 holes drape along its filigreed shores. Both the Links course and the Lake course were in the top 10 of Golf Digest's list of "America's Top 50 Affordable Courses" and all three courses at Grand National are listed among the nation's 40 Super Value courses by Golf Digest's "Places to Play".


RTJ Golf Trail at Grand National Golf Club lake course

With twelve holes hugging the shore of Lake Saugahatchee, the Lake course is one of the most scenic courses you can find. The quartet of par threes is as good as any in the nation.


RTJ Golf Trail at Grand National Golf Club links course

The cornerstone of the complex is the Links course, which is without a single weakness. The par-four eighteenth hole is without a doubt one of the strongest finishing holes on the Trail.


RTJ Golf Trail at Grand National Golf Club short course

The Short Course is a thing of beauty, with more than half the holes touching the Lake Saugahatchee. This 18-hole course of one-shotters might be the finest anywhere in the country.
