Montgomery is the capital of Alabama, and accordingly the most popular facility in the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail is located here. There are some similar characteristics that can be found on the Trail throughout the state — long yardages, hilly routes, and water hazards to boot — but the Senator course is one that goes out of its way to differentiate from Jones’s signature style.

It’s inspired by links golf, with relatively few penalty areas and large patches of fescue between holes, but it doesn’t mean the course plays any easier than its neighbors. Jones takes inspiration from the old world and brings pot bunkers into the fold...more than 160 of them, in fact.

Although the bunkering may take influence from Scotland, the yardage of this course certainly does not: It plays more than 7,600 yards from the tips. Your shots will need to be both long and accurate to survive this round, as Jones’s pots line the fairways. Water finally makes an appearance at No. 17, as a deep “burn” cuts in from the green down to the landing area. The second shot won’t be your last decision of the day, but it will be one of the more intense one.
