Posting in an old thread...but has relevance to my question.

Any of yall know what the guest fee is at Moore's Mill?
AU Club?

Thinking of having my club pro call in there next time I'm around that area for work/play.

Thanks.

Headed out next Thursday to play.  Hitting up the The Frog on the way to Birmingham, then Judge, Ross Bridge and Farmlinks.  May try to hit Grand National on the way back to Atlanta.

I don't know the area but these guys are usually fairly spot on.

Hope this helps.

I got invited by a vendor of mine to play Old Overton in May... pics online look awesome. Pretty stoked.

I'm a big fan of Steelwood CC in Loxley.  JMO but it's my hands down fav in the state.

I absolutely love Kiva.

I could've purchased another home with the amount of golf balls I've lost at Lost Key; still enjoy playing it.

I have really never had a bad experience on any RTJ (besides the time a water moccasin tried to kill me) as they are all a real treat.

I too have played quite a bit on the RTJ Trail.

Most of the courses are 4**** but by far my favorite was FarmLinks in a tiny town called Sylacauga.

A MUST PLAY.

I have heard the exact same thing. I have been told the Farm Links is the best kept "secret" in the state. Like others have also stated, you can't go wrong with pretty much any RTJ courses. I play The Shoals pretty often since I live in the area. Terri Pines in Cullman is actually a great course too. Sort of another secret some people don't know about. Finally, I can't leave out Gunters Landing in Guntersville. Gunters Landing has the most elevation changes I have ever personally seen on a golf course.

So for those who have done the RTJ trail courses... do you book your own lodging or did you do it through RTJ?   Reading other threads most have gone with their own lodging.

As far as RTJ Grand National goes you def want to stay at Marriott on the course. The course is about 10 miles or so from downtown Auburn and the hotel offers a free shuttle that will take you into town. It is just not worth driving around here if you are not familiar with it. I heard Grand National Links just aerated the greens but the Lake course is shaping up nicely for the Barbasol Champ.

If any of you ever get the chance to play AU Club or Moore's Mill with a member both are in amazing condition. Best greens in the area in my opinion.

Played Farm Links yesterday for the first time after winning a free round from them. That place is absolutely awesome. My favorite and probably the best course that I have played in Alabama.  Everything was perfectly manicured from the first tee box to the 18th green. The best set of par 3's I think I have ever seen. Will definitely go back again.

Farm Links at Pursell Farms is outstanding. Huge wide open fairways and large greens. Really neat write up on how they came to be:

http://pursellfarms....bull-marketing/

Be warned though! No alcohol allowed. If they catch you sneaking it on you'll be asked to leave. But it's still worth it.


I live across the street from the Capitol Hill RTJ and personally love the Judge. I also really enjoy the Legislator. I don't enjoy the Senator as much. It's a true links style course where most of the time you can't see the landing area from the tee box.

The RTJ courses in Auburn "Grand National" are both fun courses with the Lake course being my favorite. Very scenic but lots of water.

There's a little talked about RTJ course in Greenville Alabama that I love. Cambrian Ridge is a gorgeous course if you like tall pines and lots of elevation changes. It's 3 9 holes courses and you can play an 18 hole combo of your choice usually.

Ross Bridge is fantastic and is one of my favorite all time courses.

You really can't go wrong with any of the RTJ courses. Just know that you will find LOTS of places to lose golf balls. Stray drives are usually punished severely.

I live in Prattville myself, less that 5 minutes away from Capitol Hill. Have not played Greenville but have played most other RTJ locations. I do like Capitol hill but not a huge fan of legislator.

Cambrian ridge just got brand new champ Bermuda greens. Best greens on the trail right now.

Farmlinks also has a full liquor license now.

I did not know that. Honestly, because of the way the staff demonized it on my two trips there, I thought maybe it was a family thing where they just didn't tolerate alcohol.

The kids run the place now. Dad had kept it dry in keeping with strong conservative values, wouldn't be surprised if that stance held over with the staff
