Robert Trent Jones Celebrates 10 Millionth Golfer
Twenty-one years later and officials are celebrating the 10 millionth round of golf at Alabama's Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.
The course was designed in 1992 to enhance tourism. Since opening, 26 courses align the trail on 11 different sites across Alabama.
"In 1990 when this was all conceived tourism was a $2 billion industry and now it's $10.8 billion, and the trail is the number one tourist attraction in the state," said Niall Fraser.
Officials wanted to do more than just honor the 10 millionth visitor to the trail. So Wednesday all golfers who played received a voucher for a free round of golf at a future date.
