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

each location.

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 th

e RTJ Golf Trail.
