Oxmoor Valley Golf Course is a collection of 3 Public, 18 hole golf courses located in Birmingham, Alabama. These courses are part of the Robert Trent Jones golf trail. The courses are the Valley, Ridge, and Short Course.
The Valley Course is dotted with picturesque lakes and stretches two miles downrange along a slender valley. The 18th hole, a 441 yard par 4, nicknamed "The Assassin," rises to a dramatic finish at the signature clubhouse just behind the green.

After playing the Ridge course in the morning, we set out to try the Valley course and the first hole gets your attention with a big elevation drop. However, once down, the course stays relatively flat until it climbs back up on the last two holes. If this course were the only course on the Trail you would be impressed. However, I rank it pretty far down the list when comparing all the course on the Trail. Still, this course can eat your lunch with many water hazards and tall grass grabbing the errant tee shot. Oh, and with playing in the middle of the day, the round took about 4.5 hours to complete. A fun course but if you only have time for one round, I suggest the Ridge.

You can't go wrong here. Stay and play the other two courses.

To be fair the heavy rains over the last few months have made fairway conditions very soft and wet, plus they have overseeded the Bermuda so it is not the normal grass. The greens, tee boxes, and bunkers were all in good shape. This course is seen as a second choice to the Ridge, but it seems to score higher for some reason.

This is one of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail courses sprinkled over Alabama. This one is about average for the Trail -- some are harder, some are easier, some prettier, some not so much. Played a scramble in early December and got lucky with warm, overcast weather. Playing from the white or orange (comparable to blues most places), this course is fairly easy for a straight hitter. Playing from the purple (back) or from the tips, it can be a challenge. Trail courses are a good deal for the average golfer -- nice layouts, wide range of difficulty, attractive holes, very reasonable prices (even better for state residents, discounted with a Trail Card).
