Golf Travel Guide To Auburn-Opelika, Alabama

Looking to plan the perfect golf trip to Auburn-Opelika, Alabama? Planning a buddies trip or a romantic golf getaway can be a full time job not to mention pressure filled to deliver a memorable experience. Below is an interview with Robyn L. Bridges, Vice-President who shares some insider information about golfing and traveling to Auburn-Opelika, Alabama, must play courses, a sample itinerary and where you can go for more planning tools.

Give our readers an overview of your destination and why they should consider it for their next golf trip?
Auburn-Opelika is the proud home of Auburn University, Alabama's biggest, and the Robert Trent Jones Trail, the world's finest. It's the coolest college town in the South, according to us, and one of the top 10 cities in the US for small businesses, according to Forbes. Centrally located near Atlanta, Birmingham, and Montgomery, Auburn-Opelika is easy to get to and easy to love. With lodging facilities to suit any taste and budget, Auburn-Opelika is a perfect choice for a relaxing getaway. Opportunities for affordable and incomparable dining abound: sample the pecan-smoked chicken wings at Acre, the famous fried green tomatoes with shrimp at Hamilton's, or the grass-fed beef tenderloin at Amsterdam Cafe. Or maybe the 50-year-old secret family recipe of Mrs. Story's famous chili dogs is more your style!

Complete your evening with cocktails at the sophisticated and intimate Avondale Bar & Tap Room in downtown Auburn or a craft beer at Red Clay Brewing Company in historic downtown Opelika. Plenty of shopping and diversions are available for the non-golfers in your group, or if you just need a break from the links. Both Auburn and Opelika feature downtown shopping districts full of eclectic boutiques offering assorted clothing, arts, and gifts you won't find anywhere else. Come experience our clean, safe, and vibrant community, where you can get toilet paper, lemonade, fine art, and foie gras all on the same block, and where it's still ok to walk downtown after dark.

What are the must play courses in Auburn-Opelika, Alabama?
ROBERT TRENT JONES GOLF TRAIL AT GRAND NATIONAL Built on 600-acre Lake Saugahatchee, 32 of the 54 holes drape along its filigreed shores.
