Grand National Golf Club site by all reports was reported as "the single greatest site for a golf complex Robert Trent Jones, Jr. had ever seen". Built on 600 acre Lake Saugahatchee, 32 of the 54 holes wind along its shores. The cornerstone of the complex is The Links Course, which is without a single weakness. The course fairways are mostly open and players will be hitting many uphill and downhill shots to greens that are large and sloping. The lake comes into play on twelve holes, and there are several marsh areas that must be crossed. The par-four 18th is without a doubt the strongest finishing hole on the Trail. The drive must carry a corner of the Lake, while the approach is played to a shallow pedestal green shored up by a natural boulder bulkhead and surrounded by a cove.
