Those who prefer sailing will find many regattas scheduled at the Buccaneer Yacht Club on Mobile Bay. Magnolia Grove Golf Club is a 36-championship-hole course, with three distinct courses. It is part of the famed Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, which the New York Times described as “some of the best public golf on Earth.”
Just southeast is 100-acre Mobile Botanical Gardens. The Gardens feature interpretive boardwalks and 3 miles of hiking trails. The Garden’s MarketPlace is open Saturdays from spring to fall and it’s a great place to purchase plants. Master gardeners are often on hand to answer questions. The Gardens also offer educational programs and workshops. Even non-gardening folks enjoy walking the trails. The Gardens are less than three miles from Pinewood.
