Capitol Hill, Prattville -
One of the most popular sites on the Trail, Capitol Hill, in Prattville, continues to get praises from golfers and golf writers alike. Golf Magazine called the Judge course one of the 10 public courses in America worthy of hosting the U.S. Open and the Zagat Survey of America's Top Golf Courses ranked it among the top 50 courses in America. The Senator course was named among the Top 10 New Courses in the nation by Golf Magazine.
Located in Prattville, approximately 13 miles north of Alabama's state capital, Capitol Hill features three 18-
The Judge offers stunning vistas alongside the glistening backwaters of the Alabama River. With 14 holes adjoining the water and a stunning bulkhead island green, the Judge is described as simply magnificent.
The Legislator, a more traditional course, plays in and out of pine trees and along a bluff. The view riding down the "Sky Bridge" for holes laid out in a native cypress swamp is sure to impress.

Renovated in 2008, The Highlands course has been restored to its original Scottish Links design. Completely opposite in design is the River course, the only Robert Trent Jones layout without a single bunker. The River Course is a throwback to the way courses were built long ago. The dirt was merely pushed up to create the greens and tees, leaving all else, including massive oak trees, undisturbed.
The Highlands Course is one of the gems of the Trail. The finishing holes are scenic and challenging. One of the most recognizable landmarks on the Trail is the old mule barn beside the fifth hole.
The River Course is laid out on former soybean fields in the flood plain of the Flint River. With water on 16 of the 18 holes, the River course will challenge your shot-

Magnolia Grove, Mobile -
At the southern end of the Trail, golfers will find newly renovated courses at Magnolia Grove. The topography at Magnolia Grove features creeks, marshland, and lakes with each of the 54 holes carved through indigenous hardwood and pine. The renovations have made the courses more "player friendly" while still keeping the integrity of Robert Trent Jones' original design.
Magnolia Grove was recently named one of the "Top 50 Public Courses" by Golf World Magazine readers. The Crossings and Falls courses are also listed in Golf Digest's "Places to Play" as two of the nation's great value courses and as "America's Top 50 Affordable Courses."
The Crossings Course, which hosts the LPGA Tour each spring, provides an open parkland type ambiance. Several water features and crushed oyster shell waste areas were added during the recent renovations.
The renovated Falls Course reopened in 2010 as the only par-

Beautifully carved into the rolling terrain of Shannon Valley, Ross Bridge will challenge even the best golfers. The course meanders through beautiful natural landscape and around the 259-
Ross Bridge is one of the longest courses in the world but offers multiple tees for golfers of all levels. The beauty and challenge of each hole leads many to believe there is not one signature hole but possibly eighteen.
Symbolic of an old parkland style golf course, ten holes play along the banks of two significant lakes connected by a spectacular waterfall dropping 80 feet between the ninth and eighteenth greens.
Like many other Trail courses, the par three holes are incredible. Considerable elevation change combines with water or other natural obstructions to get your attention. Large putting surfaces provide many tempting pin locations that will test golfers' approach shots.
