Ross Bridge Golf Resort
Nike rentals , no shoe rental available
Thought course was in great condition. We played in winter so rough was dormant. Locals said they like it better in summer because the fairways are softer and the course is greener. Several holes had nice elevation changes which coming from south Florida is always nice change. There are several different tees to play from including the black at over 8000 yards! It's about a half hour drive from downtown Birmingham so if you're in the area put it on your list of places to play.

Great course! Challenging from whites and teals!
We played whites and teals (24 and 36 indexes) and had a great time. Open fairways but incredibly challenging. Slope from white seems wrong - much more challenging. LOTS of water to shoot over from the whites. With wind, you'll be challenged, to say the least. Very dry, especially compared to Oxmoor Valley Valley course. Very friendly marshalls who care about you having a good time. VERY fast greens, as they warned us in the pro shop. White te RTJ Golf Trail website had deals for the winter, Golf Now cost was less.

Great golf experience
Big, bold, visually impressive, and fun. Greens were nearly perfect. Super long, but if played from the right tees, more playable than other RTJ courses. Unless you put one in the water, you'll have a hard time losing a ball here. Room to miss on most holes.

Best RTJ course but not cheap.
The Ross Bridge is the best RTJ course in my opinion but it is the most expensive. My main complaint about RTJ courses is that the green complexes are too sectioned off so if you are not within 20-25 feet with an approach you would have to go over a large slope to get to the correct level or section. Ross Bridge greens give you the ability to have a reasonable two putt from 40-50 feet if you miss your approach. The elevation changes provide great views and large drops from tee to fairway. Offers a great practice area and ends with a fun finishing hole that makes you think on both the tee and approach shot. The course was in great shape and the greens were very nice considering they are bent andI played it in late
september after a hot and dry summer. Really enjoyed it!
