Alabama's Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail is the largest golf course construction project ever attempted. In the late 1980's, two important things were on the mind of Dr. David Bronner, CEO of the Retirement Systems of Alabama. First, how to effectively diversify the assets of the state's pension fund; and secondly, how to help the state of Alabama. His philosophy was this: "The stronger the Retirement Systems can make Alabama, the stronger the Retirement Systems will be."

With that in mind, and borrowing a page from the movie, Field of Dreams, Bronner decided to "build it and they will come" — not to a baseball diamond in a cornfield, but to a dazzling collection of public golf courses in the state of Alabama.
