Golf Course Overview
The Ridge Course at Oxmoor Valley is known to be one of the most photogenic on the Robert Trent Jones Trail. The layout takes you through 200 feet of elevation change as you play through dense woodlands in the Appalachian Mountain setting.
Measuring just over 7,000 yards from the back tees, the hilly setting provides plenty of challenge and uneven lies are the norm. Ranked No. 5 by GOLFWEEK in 2021 for the best courses you can play in Alabama, and with multiple teeing options, it should be on everyone’s shortlist when experiencing the trail.
The Ridge Course has some of the best par-5s in the state, and the 3rd hole at 539 yards from the tips is considered by many as its signature. The 18th, another par-5 is also highly impressive, with steep drop-offs either side of the fairway and plenty of bunkering protecting the green. Also look out for the 14th, a dogleg par-4 that plays around a 40-foot hill and into an elevated green.
Did You Know?
Oxmoor Valley was built on former mining land owned by U.S. Steel, and at the back of the par-5 3rd hole on the Ridge Course, a huge shelf of exposed shale reminds you of the land’s history.
