RTJ Golf Trail: The Links that thinks it’s a Lakes

The Grand National stop on the RTJ Trail is located on Lake Saugahatchee, near both Auburn (pronounced AWW-burn) and Opelika (pronounced oh-puh-LIE-cuh). Feel free to extend the LIE syllable for 2 or 3 seconds, and you’ll be welcomed with open arms. It’s a breathtaking, memorable site, home to 3 18-hole courses, one made up entirely of par-three holes. It was the last of our three stops along the trail, and gave us an agreeable send-off, along with a desire to return and sample more of the trail’s offerings.

Tom Tucker’s 2018 Golf Tips: Stage 15

Tom’s Featured Tip: Fundamental 2: Power and Distance  Based on my research and study of the swing method principles that I teach, I believe that there are three true fundamentals to golf: The ability to hit the ground in the same place every time and forward of the ball to insure clean contact.  The ability to create enough power or distance to enjoy and play the game.  The ability to match the clubface to the swing path to control the curvature of the ball to keep it in play.

RTJ Golf Trail 2018: The Legislator and The Lunatic at Oxmoor Valley and Ross Bridge

Day three of our trip to Alabama featured a morning 18 at the 3rd course at Prattville, followed by a drive toward Birmingham and our AirBnB. We enjoyed decent weather for late March, given the unpredictable nature of climate across North America this winter and spring. The courses were coming out of dormancy, but there was no mistaking the bones of the golf courses. Despite the reputation of Robert Trent Jones, senior, as a designer of overly-demanding courses, there is always a way around on the Alabama trail. You might not find yourself putting for birdie on every hole,...
