My wife and I made the 3 hour drive to Mobile, AL this weekend to play at Magnolia Grove on the Robert Trent Jones golf trail. This was my third RTJ site (I've also played Oxmoor Valley and Capitol Hill) but my wifes first. Having played some of the RTJ tracts, I kind of knew what to expect...a decently long course with fairly generous fairways, lots of bunkers, quite a few forced carries and elevated greens. I also expected quite a few nice views on the course as well. Overall, my wife and I really enjoyed our time. Magnolia Grove has two championship courses (Falls Course and Crossings Course) and a Short Course. The Crossings course hosts the LPGA Avnet Classic each year. Both courses were in great shape, but the Crossings course was overseeded (faiways) whereas the Falls course was not. The course was not overly punishing, and rewarded good shots but didn't completely kill you on bad shots (unlike the Judge and Legislator at Capitol Hill, which are beasts...although also great courses). The greens were a little slower than I was used to but very puttable. All in all, I'd return to Magnolia Grove if the opportunity arises. I have a few pics below for your viewing pleasure.
