Detailed description of Oxmoor Valley Golf Course - Ridge (RTJGT)

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.

Sculpted from the peaks and valleys of the Appalachians, Oxmoor Valley offers scenic forests, numerous creeks and challenging elevation changes.

The Ridge Course, with its rolling fairways, heavy tree cover and precipitous 150-foot elevation changes, is incredibly photogenic. As a reminder of the site's former use as mining land, the green at the par 5 twelfth is buttressed by a shelf of exposed shale rock.

As part of playing several courses on the RTJ Trail, the Ridge course at Oxmoor Valley is about in the middle when comparing them all. Still, the layout is very fun and challenging with nice elevation changes, trees, lakes, and bunkering. There are several signature holes and your game will be challenged with different sloping lies. Good size greens make for a fair test. If I lived nearby, I would play this course often. The course was in great condition. Very nice staff and great clubhouse! (I also played the Valley course and it is equally as good, but I found the Ridge course a bit more fun).

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area

Bent grass greens take a beating from heat and number of rounds. Other players are not repairing their divots which leaves the greens in poor shape.

Played as part of group golf trip, so not sure about the cost of this particular venue. Played Ridge course in am, then the Valley course in pm. After playing the Ridge bent greens, the bermuda greens on the Valley course were difficult to adapt to until well into the round. Both were in very good condition, which was amazing since our trip occurred the weekend after the massive & destructive tornados hit the area.

Not cheap but worth the price. Better be accurate with your driver or you will give up strokes galore.
