Auburn University Club: Auburn University
13 Panelists
Located just minutes from campus, the Auburn University Club—home to the Tigers’ men’s and women’s programs—was designed by architect Bill Bergin, an Auburn men’s team alum, opening in 1999. The layout, which can be stretched to over 7,300 yards from the back tees, is situated on 225 acres of rolling hills and woodlands surrounding Yarbrough Lake. The length of the course, combined with narrow fairways and many elevation changes make this a stern test.

Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Grand National: The Lake
46 Panelists
The PGA Tour’s Barbasol Championship was played on Grand National’s Lake course from 2015 through '17. Strategically placed bunkers and large multi-tiered greens defend this eastern Alabama layout. The track hugs the shore of Sougahatchee Lake, which comes into play on 12 of the 18 holes, often around the greens. The four par 3s each offer a stern test with water in play, most notably on the signature island-green 15th.

Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail At Grand National: The Links
39 Panelists
Contrary to its name, the Links course at Grand National requires many forced carries over bunkers and marshes to often elevated, undulating greens. The layout features large greens with numerous tiers, placing a premium on precise iron play. Weaving through woodlands and playing along Sougahatchee Lake, the Links concludes with its signature par-4 18th, where both the tee and approach shots must carry water to reach an enormous green.
