RTJ Golf Trail - Magnolia Grove (Crossings course): Magnolia Grove, just outside Mobile, can boast two fabulous golf courses on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. The Crossings (which gets its name from the fact that you will twice cross over railway tracks) is another definitive, undulating, wooded parkland course, masterfully created by Trent Jones. Like so many others on the Trail, the terrain is wonderfully rolling and handsomely tree-lined, giving rise to one majestically sculpted hole after another.
There is no real estate here, no roads, and no distant views, just a thoroughly natural and absorbing course that exudes quality and a good degree of challenge from start to finish. Water is seldom a factor here, but many elevated tee positions and well-bunkered, elevated greens ensure each of the mainly wooded holes has its own special character and charm. The undulating fairways are not overly wide, lined with a good-sized band of semi-rough, which in summer can be rather penal. Beyond the semi, are plenty of mature pines and oaks. Before arriving at the fabulous uphill par-4 closing hole, take care on the green of the par-3 17th - with the pin in its usual position its not difficult to putt the ball off the green, across the cart path and down into a swampy mire.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.

The Crossings course at Magnolia Grove is used by the LPGA Tour (see Tournaments section - by Venue) >> One of the best times to visit is late-Spring when the crepe myrtles and magnolias add a dramatic splash of colour all around the course >> ABOUT THE TRAIL : The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail is a unique collection of eleven excellent golf venues spread through the State of Alabama. Dr. David Bronner, the then CEO of the organisation that ran the Alabama state-employees pension funds, originally conceived the idea of the Trail. He was convinced that creating a top-quality golf trail would attract golfers from near and far, raise Alabama's profile and at the same time earn a good return for the pension fund monies invested in the project - the world's largest golf course building project ever undertaken. The original courses on the Trail (located at Hampton Cove, Silver Lakes, Oxmoor Valley, Capitol Hill, Grand National, Cambrian Ridge, Magnolia Grove, and Highland Oaks) were all designed by Robert Trent Jones and opened for play in 1992. Lakewood GC at Point Clear was acquired along with the Grand Hotel; its two golf courses were recently renovated and included in the Trail. Although not designed by Trent Jones, The Shoals and Ross Bridge were added to the Trail in more recent years.
