Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, Alabama

In the late 80’s Dr. David Bronner, CEO of the Retirement Systems of Alabama had an idea, but not just any idea, a really big idea: build an enormous network of world-class golf courses around the state that would drive golf tourism and showcase the natural beauty of his home state, Alabama. Bonner knew he needed a partner to pull this off and chose Robert Trent Jones, Sr.

Arguably the premier golf course architect in the world, Jones jumped at the chance and emerged from near retirement to tackle the giant project. What they managed to build became the largest and most successful golf construction project ever attempted anywhere in the world. The project took on the designers name and became The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail and it has quickly become one of the top golf destinations in the world.

Starting small, the initial plan was for just seven sites. It now features 26 championship golf courses across eleven locations in Alabama!

Since its founding, the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail has won numerous awards and honours, including several from Golf Digest's "Places to Play" and even being featured in 50 Places to Play Golf Before You Die, by Chris Santella.  Frequent Flyer magazine named the RTJ Trail as one of the "Top 10 Trips" and The New York Times called it "Some of the best public golf on earth.'  With accolades like that, your golf vacation can't go wrong with the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail!
