The
Lakewood Club at the Grand Hotel Golf Resort & Spa on Mobile Bay in Point Clear, Alabama, is a member of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Rolling fairways, tight greens, spring-fed lakes, meandering streams, and stands of mature trees make the 36 holes of Lakewood’s
Dogwood Course and Azalea Course both beautiful and challenging. Grand Hotel Golf Resort & Spa opened in 1847 and was inducted into Historic Hotels of America in 2011.

The Lakewood Club at Grand Hotel Golf Resort & Spa was founded in the hotel’s centennial year, 1947. The Grand Hotel’s owners hired Perry Maxwell to design an 18-hole golf course, the original Dogwood Course. Maxwell himself was quite an accomplished landscape architect at the time, having helped found the American Society of Golf Course Architects a year earlier. A fine clubhouse was constructed with reclaimed wood that same year. Since 1947, the club’s majestic oak lined links have hosted European royalty, movie stars, and sports legends, along with legions of local and visiting golfers. Among the illustrious guests to specifically play at the course are University of Alabama football coach Paul Bryant, entertainer Bob Hope, and even former U.S. President Gerald Ford. The Kenny Stabler Charity Golf Classic was held at the Lakewood Club for several years and hosted a who is who of professional football players and other celebrities. The 18-hole Azalea Course features the club’s signature hole, #14, a 545-yard par-5 ending on an island green in the middle of a four-acre pond.

In 2005, under the direction of Robert Trent Jones Trail team, an expansion to 36 holes was completed. Renovations did not erase the historic nature of the golf course, but instead enhanced those qualities. Inside the clubhouse, the historic nature of the club becomes even more evident, though it also features a pro shop, restaurant, and bar. The Dogwood Course underwent more renovations and improvements in the 2010s that have created a fresh look and feel to the 7,104-yard, par 72 layout. Reopened in July of 2018, the course was the site of the 2021 U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur championship, one of 14 championship tournaments run by the United States Golf Association.
