Deerfield Golf will travel to the Grand National Golf Club, a 54-hole complex in Auburn, Alabama, that has hosted PGA Tour and LPGA Tour events as well as the men’s and women’s Division I NCAA championships. While there we will have a chance to practice at Grand National’s extensive practice facilities as well as play matches of up to 36 holes a day on Grand National’s two championship courses as well as on its highly regarded and recently renovated par 3 course. Golfers and coaches will stay a short drive from Grand National, eat dinners together in local restaurants, and otherwise enjoy each other’s company as we prepare for the season.
