Our favourite course on this trip - a beautiful course and a pleasure to play
Located just 20 minutes outside of Birmingham, Alabama, the newest addition to the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, Ross Bridge, boasts a stunning 18-hole championship golf course that has been carved into the picturesque, rolling terrain of Shannon Valley, a patch of land that seems heaven sent for a top class golf course.
Ross Bridge can lay claim to being one of the longest golf courses in the world, measuring over 8,000 yards from the back tees, but thanks to a number of different tee positions, five in total, golfers of all abilities can enjoy a course that embodies the very essence of golf in the Deep South.

Only the longest of hitters, or those with a penchant for punishment, will attempt to take on all 8,191 yards of Ross Bridge but thanks to 5 different sets of tees the course can be tailored to suit the needs of a plethora of golfers, from talented professionals to the weekend warrior. In fact, the course can be reduced all the way down to a little over 5,000 yards.
Symbolic of an old parkland style golf course, Ross Bridge meanders through spectacular indigenous Alabama countryside with no less than ten holes set along the banks of two tranquil lakes connected by a spectacular waterfall dropping 80 feet between the ninth and eighteenth greens.
Like many of the courses along the Trent Jones Trail, Ross Bridge features sweeping undulations and elevation changes that, when coupled with the threat of natural hazards, water hazards and immense bunkers, provide golfers with challenging approach shots throughout the round.
The par threes are particular highlights of this magnificent course, with considerable elevation changes and well protected albeit large greens. Tempting pin locations will tempt the foolhardy golfer but those who fire for the centre of the putting surfaces will be rewarded with good looks at birdie as the greens are both slick and true.
