Grand National Golf Course-Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail

Picture
Grand National, by all reports, was the single greatest site for a golf resort complex Robert Trent Jones, Sr. had ever seen. Built on 600-acre Lake Saugahatchee, 32 of the 54 holes drape along its filigreed shores.

Grand National was ranked as the top public golf course in the 2009
Golf World Readers' Choice awards. The Links course was named by Golf Digest as the 2nd best new public course in America in 1993, followed by the Lake course as the 4th best. Both courses have also made the top 10 of Golf Digest's list of America's Top 50 Affordable Courses. The three courses at Grand National are also listed among the nation's 40 Super Value courses by Golf Digest's Places to Play.

In addition, Grand National offers a luxury hotel that is part of the Marriott chain.  The hotel was rated as the best hotel in the state of Alabama for 2009.

Moton Field-Home of the Tuskegee Airmen

Picture
In spite of adversity and limited opportunities, African Americans have played a significant role in U.S. military history over the past 300 years. They were denied military leadership roles and skilled training because many believed they lacked qualifications for combat duty. Before 1940, African Americans were barred from flying for the U.S. military. Civil rights organizations and the black press exerted pressure that resulted in the formation of an all African-American pursuit squadron based in Tuskegee, Alabama, in 1941. They became known as the Tuskegee Airmen. For more information visit:  http://www.nps.gov/history/museum/exhibits/tuskegee/airoverview.htm

Toomers CornerOne of the City of Auburn’s most recognizable landmarks, Toomer's Corner is at the intersection of College Street and Magnolia Avenue in the heart of the City of Auburn. With Toomer’s Drugs, an Auburn landmark since 1896, facing what has since 1856 been the anchoring corner of Auburn’s campus, Toomer’s Corner is the nexus of campus and city life. 

Toomer’s Corner affords a view of the twin, century-old oak trees which have celebrated Auburn’s spirit with countless thousands of revelers who have engaged in the long-standing tradition of “rolling Toomer’s Corner”, a celebration occurring after every significant Auburn sports victory.

Nowhere is Auburn’s unique spirit, history or identity stronger than at Toomer’s Corner.
