With 12 holes hugging the shore, Grand National's Lake Course is every bit as scenic as the Links. Not only is the quartet of par threes as good as any in the nation, the 230-yard, island green 15th may be the single prettiest hole on the Trail. The 18-hole "Lakes" course at the Grand National Golf Course facility in Opelika, Alabama features 6,488 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72. The course rating is 72.3 and it has a slope rating of 134 on Bermuda grass. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., ASGCA, the The Lakes golf course opened in 1992.
