Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail
Score some serious bragging rights with your golfing buddies back home when you tell them you played the famous Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail on your visit to Montgomery, Alabama. Just a short 15-minute drive from downtown Montgomery, Capitol Hill, named the #2 public golf facility in the country by Golf World magazine, delivers on all the hype with three stunning 18-hole championship golf courses.
Discover the Judge course and its views of the Alabama River and the Montgomery skyline. Fourteen of the 18 holes adjoin the water making for a beautiful but unforgiving course. The Legislator course offers more traditional play as you negotiate the pine trees along a bluff overlooking the Alabama River. Don’t get distracted by the view because you have six holes in a native cypress swamp to test your skill. The Senator course, host of the LPGA’s Epson Tour Guardian Championship, delivers a Scottish-Links style course with patience-testing pot-hole bunkers, all 140 of them.
Need to work on your game before you step on the course? Capitol Hill has an innovative 360-degree driving range that covers 400 yards in diameter. You wouldn’t expect anything else from a golf destination of this caliber.
Encompassing more than 1,500 acres, Capitol Hill celebrates its natural setting with three truly unique courses. Check out the course tours on their website ahead of your visit to plot your strategy. Play one or play them all to appreciate the consistent rankings they receive from GOLF Magazine, and the Zagat Survey of America’s Top Golf Courses.
