“Outstanding Golf”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014

We enjoyed both courses this past weekend. The golf shop personnel, starters and cart personnel are very friendly and helpful. The course is very challenging for the average golfer, if you are a 100 shooter play at the white tees and hit them straight, accuracy is very important to keep your ball in play. We enjoyed the Lake Course a little more than the Links course, the Lake course was a bit more forgiving. We walked both days with a pull cart. Both courses are very interesting, and a beautiful layout. We had a lot of fun playing and look forward to giving it another go. Watch out for the sand traps, they are tough, one pot bunker even had a stair set in it.

“Grand National”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014

By far one of the best golf courses on the RTJ Trail and one of best all around public courses in the state. I played the Links course and plan on the Lakes course next time I'm in town. The holes are challenging but some are forgiving. There is some target golf that comes into play in some situations and I found myself using irons over woods on a few tee boxes. Greens were in excellent condition for the time of year, winter.

“One of the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

I'm not a golfer but I have traveled most of the courses in a golf cart and have helped here during special events. Beautiful course. Difficult course. A lot of golf for a little money. I have talked to a lot of people who played here and they all agree it's "one of the best".

“This is a beautiful course surrounded by woodlands and lakes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

This course if a part of the Alabama Golf Trail. There is a Marriott Hotel adjoining the course.

A neighbor moved here from Illinois to be able to play golf year 'round. This course is one of at least five (5) golf courses in or around the Auburn area. All surrounded by woodlands.
