Lots of up and down Fairways with elevated greens. The green are hard and do not hold the ball. The greens putt fast. Most greens have steep banks and you have 5o hit the right target or ball roles off in collection areas or water. Plays tougher than slope for average golfer. Very hilly course.

The course is different after the tornado took out over 10,000 trees (locals call it silver links) Seriously, the course is a golfer dream with great fairways and normal RTJ greens (not too many flat putts) any of the 4 (9 hole) courses would make you want to play the others.

This RTJ course features large greens, often with four different levels, very hard (won't hold even a good high approach without a LOT of backspin), with lots of slopes, and EVERY GREEN IS ELEVATED WITH A FALSE FRONT. Unless you are a low handicapper you may find it such a challenge that it is not really enjoyable. On the other... More

Our group played here after playing several courses in Birmingham. The courses were hard to play because of the wind. We were delayed twice by lightning. Many of the trees were destroyed by a tornado several years ago. I would play other RTJ courses before these.

easy access, very friendly staff in clubhouse, uncrowded and very enjoyable to play, just enough tweaking to make it tough if you want it that way or much easier for those who do not want to test their golf skills... played 18 in 2 3/4 hours... hard to beat that

The appropriately named Heart, Mind and Backbreaker nines are definately challenging but very good golf at a great price. Tip: after 3pm prices are about 1/2 off. Course was in great shape too, as are all of the RTJ Trail courses. I would probably play better after a few rounds to get more local info.

Sadly a storm took away a lot of trees in one area of the course a few years ago but this a good course made of 3 good 9's. Tees are set up to suit all levels though the front Ladies tees can make some of the holes rather easy (I lost!). There is also a very challenging par 3... More

This is by far one of the nicest courses I have ever played. Everything is immaculate! Staff is friendly and helpful. It is challenging to say the least! Depending on what tee you play from it can be long. Greens are firm and fast but consistent. Not a lot of trees anymore after the tornadoes of April 27th, but they... More

Day one of our three day trip through the Robert Trent Jones trail. Amazed that the course was even open, let alone in great condition, following the 2011 tornados that hit the course. Remnants of the storm can still be seen on the perimeter of the course showing the devastation they have recovered from. Can't say that there was one... More

Very disappointed in this course. I realize they are rebuilding after the tornado damage, but they have made some poor design decisions during the rebuild. Changing to bermida greens was not a good decision. The greens are all elevated and will not hold a ball. I have no issue with bermuda greens when the course is properly designed to have... More
