It may just be warming up where you are but, here in the Gulf Coast, every season is golf season. Alabama is a golf lover’s paradise, with a fine variety of public and private courses, including The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.

Though you can find excellent golfing all across the state, the selection of public, Mobile AL golf courses is hard to beat. One of the area’s biggest draws, has to be Magnolia Grove.
