My friend and I played this course as the starting point for a trip on the RTJ trail. We played the lake course which was shorter. Shorter but not without challenge. Views are lovely and sand traps are everywhere. The course was well maintained.

Really a fiirst class golf course.? Beautiful scenery. Several difficult holes and lots of water on the Lakeside Course. Marriott Hotel is next door and is super nice. You are also close to Auburn and Opelika and great restaurants.
