Set amidst the rolling hills, thick forests and creeks of what used to be the mining land of US Steel stands a premiere golf vacation destination designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones: The Oxmoor Valley in Birmingham, AL. The Oxmoor Valley is a championship golfing facility that is part of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. It has three 18-hole championship courses that offer diverse levels of challenge and vistas to suit every visiting golfer’s taste. One of the most picturesque courses in the facility is The Ridge Course at Oxmoor Valley.
The Ridge Course at Oxmoor Valley is characterized by tree-lined rolling fairways and large undulating greens. Golfers find the extra challenge on their golf trip when they play at the Ridge course because of the numerous uphill and downhill shots to be taken, not to mention a lot of blind tee shots over the hills that are cleverly disguised by the subtle breaks. Golfers need to arm themselves with a lot of shot-making skills, strategies, and gut to make that risky shot. The signature hole of The Ridge Course is the beautiful 176-yard par 3 with its artful combination of a challenging 90-foot drop and panoramic view of the whole course.
Apart from giving a treat to the eyes, the Ridge Course at Oxmoor Valley also aims to cater to golfers of all handicaps and give them truly memorable golf trips at the course. It has four sets of teeboxes to accommodate every playing level. The developers of this golf course has truly made something out of this mining land, something that makes every round of golf here precious.
