The best women professional golfers in the world will be in Prattville next week for the Navistar LPGA Classic on the Senator Course at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail's Capitol Hill facility.

And they'll be staying at the Marriott Prattville Hotel and Conference Center at Capitol Hill that won Most Improved Associate Excellence in Marriott last year.

This huge tourism event comes on the heels of Bass Pro opening in Prattville, another venue that attracts people from throughout the state and region.

And in less than five months, the new Renaissance Montgomery Hotel and Spa will host its first convention, the 62nd annual meeting of the National Alumni Leadership Conference of the United Negro College Fund - their first ever meeting in Montgomery.

Our state is already ranked fourth best in the country by BestSpas USA.                This facility will only enhance that rating.

It will also provide thousands of newcomers to the region who will be able to walk across the street and watch the two time Southern League champion Montgomery Biscuits. 

Tourism is already the leading industry in Alabama. It could be a ten billion dollar industry by the end of this decade.
