Even the most casual golfers will want to try at least one of the state's 23 courses designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. On the 378-hole trail (considered the biggest golf construction project in the history of the game), golfers can stroke their way from Huntsville to Mobile, taking in the full range of Alabama's scenery (as seen from a fairway).
The courses, which were financed and built by the Retirement Systems of Alabama, are all within 15 mi/24 km of the state's interstate highway system and no more than a two-hour drive from each other. There are mountainous courses in northern Alabama and wetland and water courses in the south. The five largest facilities (54 holes each) are near Birmingham, Huntsville, Mobile, Prattville and Auburn/Opelika. There are 36-hole complexes in Greenville, Dothan and Anniston/Gadsden. Tee dates can be reserved in advance at these public courses, which are open seven days a week. For more details request the free golf guide from the Alabama Bureau of Tourism—phone 800-252-2262.
