Professional golf tournaments have also been
played at Magnolia Grove in Mobile and Ross
Bridge in Birmingham.
Before the RTJ Golf Trail, Alabama was
known by snowbirds from the north as a
drive-thru state as they were fleeing south
to escape cold weather. Now those retired
Americans with disposable money in their
pockets stop by an RTJ Golf course, pay for
green fees, have a meal, down a few cold
beers and even buy a shirt or two before they
head on down the road.
Some of those same snowbirds have even
been induced to head to southern Alabama
and spend the winter enjoying the mild
climate around Mobile, Gulf Shores and the
Alabama Gulf Coast rather than head over to
more hectic Florida locales.
Bronner challenged the designers of the RTJ
Golf Trail courses to make them difficult, but
be memorable for the golfers stopping to play
them. He wanted to command affordable
green fees, but leave the golfer with a feeling
of wanting to comeback for more.
One of the overlooked features of the RTJ
Golf Trail is the variety of par-3 golf courses
at many of the locations. If you need an
emergency nine, a course enjoyable for
women and juniors, or just something a little
different, the par-3 golf courses are a treat.
You don’t have to play the courses to have
fun on the RTJ Golf Trail. They also feature the
best in instruction and practice facilities at
For Golfaholics in the northern part of the
country heading south for warmer climates,
the RTJ Golf Trail is a perfect stop for a
quick round or consider taking a couple of
weeks to play all 468 holes. Buddie’s Trips,
Couple’s Getaways or Snow Birds heading
south will all find that the RTJ Golf Trail
accommodations, food and golf are among
the best in the world.
David Bronner had a vision to grow
the state of Alabama through golf.
The funding from the Retirement
System of Alabama made the
dream a reality and golfers are the
beneficiary of the fantastic courses
and facilities on the RTJ Golf Trail.
