Detailed description of Magnolia Grove - Short Course (RTJGT)

The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail's Magnolia Grove is a Public, 54 hole golf facility located in Mobile, Alabama. The course has three 18-hole courses, The Falls, The Crossings, and the par-3 Short Course.

The property at Magnolia Grove includes creeks, marshland, and lakes, with each of the 54 holes carved from a thick forest of hardwood and pine.

The main tract is The Falls, which is characterized by large, liberally contoured greens and massive, cloverleaf bunkers. On the 10th, a 570 yard par 5 and possibly the best strategic hole on the course, a waterfall cascades across stair steps just beneath a contoured green that falls eight feet from front to back.

The Crossings, which doubles across railroad tracks is a shotmaker's layout. It occupies hillier terrain than the Falls, with several pulpit greens elevated well above fairway levels. The Crossings is also home to the LPGA's Mitchell Company Tournament of Champions.

Most of the holes on the Short Course, recently named the best par 3 course in America, call for forced carries over marsh to liberally sloped, bulk headed greens and are equal to any of the one-shotters on the full-length courses.

GREAT SHORT COURSE --RATED NO.1 BY GOLF DIGEST AND GOLF MAGAZINE. FUN PLAYING FROM ANY TEE. I USUALLY PLAY A BALL FROM TWO DIFFERENT TEE BOXES(2 BALLS IN PLAY), ESPECIALLY IF I'M BY MYSELF AND COURSE NOT CROWDED. IT IS A CHALLENGING COURSE BUT WORTH THE YOUR TIME AND ATTENTION.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
