OPELIKA, AL (WSFA) -

Monday proved to be a busy one for the staff at Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Grand National. Crews were taking down signs and tents less than 24 hours after Barbasol Championship wrapped up.

Tuesday was also a big day for golfers with this trail opening back open to the public.

"I can't express how exciting it is because it's something not many people will ever get to do. We can't describe how proud we are of this trail," said Cammie O'Conner. 

Prior to the trail opening back up to the public the Lake course was already sold out. Golfers planned months in advance to take the challenge and play the same course as the pros. 

Grand national is one of only five PGA Tour stops out of 45 that are held at a public golf course. 

"The course is in great shape. It will of course be tougher. It will be exciting. We play it regularly, but it's not as tough," said Steve Stringer. 

Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail is celebrating its 25th anniversary.
