Magnolia Grove - Falls Course
The property at Magnolia Grove includes creeks, marshland, and lakes, with each of the 36 holes carved from a thick forest of hardwood and pine. The highly-rated Falls Course is characterized by large, liberally contoured greens, massive cloverleaf bunkers and plays around more water hazards and marsh areas than its sister course The Crossings. The course is named for the small waterfall in view between the 9th and 10th holes. On the 10th, a 570-yard par-five, and possibly the most strategic hole on the course, a waterfall cascades across stair steps just beneath a tiered green that falls eight feet from front to back. Always challenging and very scenic, The Falls Course is always a memorable experience.

Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, AL Golf Vacations by Golf Zoo
When Golf Digest selected Alabama the 3rd best state for golf value a couple of years ago, it became obvious that the state was a major player on the golf scene. Due in part to the success of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, Alabama finds itself at the pinnacle of the golfing world. Golf course architect Robert Trent Jones saw the group of public courses he designed in Alabama as his version of Michelangelo's masterful artwork in the Sistine Chapel. The 21 courses are now called the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, a total of 378 holes at eight locations across the state.
