RTJ Golf Trail - Magnolia Grove (Falls course): Magnolia Grove, just outside Mobile, can boast two fabulous golf courses on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. The Falls, which takes its name from a small waterfall that comes into the picture around the turn, is a course packed with variety - sometimes wooded, other times more open, at one point getting alongside a small lake. Compared to its companion course, the Crossings, it is at times a tighter and tougher layout, with more water in play. Swampy creeks occasionally meander across the fairways, or lie in wait at the front of some greens.
Most of the time the elevated tees will give you a good look at the hole and its attendant hazards. However, Trent Jones has also allowed the natural rolling landscape to conceal some of the 150-yard markers and occasionally the greens, creating some blind or semi-blind tee and approach shots. As is often the case on the Trail, the par-3's are excellent; the tough 2nd is played to a beautifully elevated green, while the 11th requires an "across the corner of a lake" shot to the green. Plenty of other holes besides the par-3's will require well hit irons to avoid the substantive cloverleaf bunkering around the mainly elevated, not overly-large but abundantly sloping greens. Always challenging and thoroughly absorbing, this is a memorable course, full of variety, that will test, probe and enthral from start to finish.

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.
