The man who made the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail

    There was a nice profile piece on David Bronner on the CNBC television network during its Power Lunch program yesterday.  Dr. Bronner is the man whose vision resulted in the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Alabama.  He runs the state's pension fund and is the envy of governors and pension administrators everywhere.  His brainstorm that golf courses could not only fill the coffers of the state employees' pension fund but also attract people and revenue to Alabama is a model of creativity.    
    The piece, which you can view by clicking here, indicates that the state is now building hotels and resorts adjacent to many of the more than 460 holes along the Trail.  Independent developers have already opened golf communities near many of the courses along the Trail, and many more are sure to follow.
    I am looking forward to my trip there early in March and to reporting on the Alabama golfing lifestyle, as well as the three golf courses I intend to play.
