Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail At Magnolia Grove: Falls
4
14 Panelists
Situated in the southern tip of the state near Mobile Bay, the Falls course at Magnolia Grove underwent an extensive renovation in 2010. The dogleg left par-4 opener gives an indication of what is in store—as many holes turn from right to left. It's a relatively hilly layout for the Mobile area with generous landing areas and subtle greens. The bunkers are generally large, none more so than the one short of the green at the par-3 sixth, where a poorly-struck shot may leave a 60-yard blast.

Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail At Magnolia Grove: Crossings
3.9
19 Panelists
The Crossings course hosted an LPGA event from 1999 through 2014, boasting notable champions such as Karrie Webb, Se Ri Pak, Lorena Ochoa and Paula Creamer. A relatively flat parkland design, the course offers wide landing areas and large, subtly undulating greens. Wooden bulkheads and impressively large bunkers enhance the course’s aesthetics and serve to both visually intimidate and punish wayward shots. More recently, the Crossings hosted the LPGA Q-Series in 2021 and will do so again in 2022.

Rock Creek Golf Club
Public
Rock Creek Golf Club
Fairhope, AL
As is typical of many Alabama layouts, tall pines line the fairways, which often camber back toward the center, making them play wider than they appear. There are significant elevation changes, including at the par-4 second hole, which drops 70 feet from tee to fairway. Ravines and wetlands are also commonplace at Rock Creek, which despite all the intriguing features, is a playable track.

The Lakewood Club: Azalea
The Lakewood Club: Azalea
Point Clear, AL
The southernmost stop on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, The Lakewood Club offers 36 holes for members, guests of the Grand Hotel Golf Resort & Spa and RTJ Trail cardholders. Situated on the eastern shore of Mobile Bay, the Azalea course is a relatively flat, tree-lined layout. Azalea bushes line many holes, making the course especially scenic during the spring bloom. A couple of the par 3s—Nos. 4 and 15—have two greens on each, making them play quite differently depending on which ones are in use.
