In the late 1980's, two very major ideas were on the mind of Dr. David Bronner, CEO of the Retirement Systems of Alabama. One, how to successfully diversify the money in the state's pension fund; and two, how to improve the state of Alabama. He thought: "The stronger the Retirement Systems of Alabama can make Alabama, the stronger the Retirement Systems will be." With that thought, and borrowing the theme from the movie "Field of Dreams," he decided to "build-it-and-they-will-come" -- not to a baseball diamond in a corn field, but a spectular collection of public golf links throughout the state of Alabama.
