"Globally there is no other golf trail or designated collection of public courses that can match the quality, diversity, affordability, accessibility, and ease of travel of Alabama's Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail." - James Achenbach (GolfWeek)
Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail "A to Z"
If ever a subject were perfectly suited for an "A to Z" feature, it is the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Alabama. Twenty-Six Letters. Twenty-Six Courses. Coincidence? No way.
A: Birmingham, Alabama is home to the Honours Golf Corporate headquarters, an elite branch of Troon Golf with a portfolio of golf properties designed by local and global legends like Arnold Palmer.
Alabama's Gulf Shores has a San Diego climate with Iowa prices. How's that for an opening statement? I've advocated strongly for the region the past five years, and snowbirds continue to flock there. What's more... the locals seldom leave.
Putts And Pints - From Local Craft Beer To Great Golf, Alabama's Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Offers Exceptional Options
After a challenging round on America's Original Golf Trail, prepare to wet your whistle in style at one of the eight luxury hotels at your neighbor to the West in Alabama. The Resort Collection on Alabama's Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail offers exceptional dining utilizing a farm to table mentality for freshness and taste.
TROON ALABAMA - Honours To Be Here
A month ago we broke a huge announcement at Tee Times. Troon - one of the nation's elite golf management companies was adding Alabama's Honours Golf Management Company to its family tree. And so it went down. Honours Golf is now a division of Troon.
Golf Shores, Alabama - More Than Just Gulf
You see what I did there (with the title)? Yes, that was intentional. The words are almost interchangeable in Gulf Shores, Alabama. First of all, it's on the Gulf of Mexico - closest thing to an ocean for us Midwesterners.
Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail - 100 Miles In Jones' Shoes
There is nothing else like it in America. No more unique of an original vision. No more successful of a business model. If the opinion of millions of golfers mattered as much as those few picked to pen the world's history books, Dr. David Bronner would be regarded in the same genius light as Albert Einstein, Sir Isaac Newton and Alexander Graham Bell.
Honours Golf - Come On Down
In the Golf Gulf Shores feature (also in this issue) I mentioned the memorable Southern Hospitality I experienced on each of my visits to the Alabama Gulf Coast. That perennial, day in day out consistency in excellent service is no coincidence. Honours Golf operates five of the eight Golf Gulf Shores courses.
Golf Gulf Shores - Engulf Yourself
Literally only two weeks ago I reluctantly drug my feet through the soft, white, Gulf Shore sand, ambling miserably towards my car - the first steps towards a long drive back to Minnesota. Mid-November it was almost 80 and sunny... people were swimming - outdoors - and the golf courses were packed.
Golf the Alabama Gulf Coast: Mix two parts sugar-white sand with one part crystal blue water, stir in nine lovely golf courses, and you have one sweet vacation.
When I first heard I was going to the Gulf Coast of Alabama, my friends said, "You are headed for the Redneck Riviera." But perception and reality turned out to be quite different. This is a beautiful place to visit with great golf, fine food and beautiful beaches. Hurricane Katrina missed this part of the Gulf, and the effects of last year's oil spill are minimal. It's a beautiful vacation spot that draws southerners escaping the heat of summer and snowbirds escaping the cold of winter.
How You Can Help the Gulf Coast
The Gulf Shores Golf Association has a message for those wondering how to help the Gulf Coast: come down and play some golf.

With the threat of oil looming along the Gulf Coast, many would-be vacationers are canceling their reservations and opting to stay home or visit elsewhere, fearing their beach vacations will be ruined if they visit the area.
