best course around

Easily the best course I've played. Just being on such a well kept course is worth the price. Every hole has unique challenges that make the play here always enjoyable and never repetitive. I can't wait to go back.

Do yourself a favor and go play this course. A+ in every way. Fantastic layout- literally not a bland hole on the course. Perfectly manicured fairways and tee boxes. Perfect bent greens. All you can ask for...

This is a very challenging course that is kept up beautifully. They had great service and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. It is fairly pricey, but worth it.

Our trip was great and Ross Bridge was the culmination of that trip. It is by far the very best that the "Trail" has to offer. The course was set up for the Champions tour event the following week so you can imagine it was in great condition. The only part of the course that was lacking was the 17/18th fairways were "wet". The greens rolled true and the scenery was magnificant. I would caution anyone who is not a long hitter to choose the appropriate tee box to play from as this will assure you a more enjoyable round. My group experienced nothing but professionalism from start to finish.

Great course but worse golfing experience in twenty years!On 13th hole a course ranger told us to speed up play although we were were less than a half hole behind the foursome in front of us. And that was OK. But then he sat there and watched every shot and every putt for the next three holes...often as close as 50 feet. Pure intimidation! Was it because two of us were seniors? Or one a senior woman? Bottom line: his conduct caused erroneous hurried shots and ruined the day for me.We also finished 8 minutes behind the foursome in front of us who took five and half hours to play...and had no harassment by any marshals. Never again will we play this course!! Or any of the other Alabama Trail course either.

I'm a bogie golfer and enjoyed my round from the white tees. The greens were a tad quick but held shots nicely and rolled true. The rough looked short but was difficult to get out of. Best to use a 7 - 9 iron and just get back in the fairway. The course is set up so you rarely see other golfers. Beautiful set-up with rolling hills, large lakes and attractive man-made water falls and creek. The service was first rate and everyone treated me friendly right down to the grounds crew. gps systems on carts could of had better info on yardage and suggestions on how to play each hole. Other resort courses in this price range have the ability to order food and drinks from GPS, though the beverage cart came by every few holes it only offered minimal snacks and drinks, no sandwhiches. The cart prices were reasonable, the pro shop was way over-priced so I didn't even buy a souviner. If I had to make one complaint, there was a lot of grounds work being done that left bare dirt in some places and uneven sod in others. I realize that it takes work to maintain a golf course and this course is maintained very well! So no complaints here, I will play again!

It was a great course with great scenary but not to difficult to play for a average golfer like me from the White Tees. I think it is way over priced for what you get in comparison to the other RTJ Courses.

Spectacular course!! Awesome beverage service on the course. Saw the cart girl at least every three holes. Length from Black Tees is challenging but is very fair from White and Orange Tees. Clubhouse has good food, pleasant atmosphere, and great service.

Can't Wait Until Spring

I played this course on a winter day in late February and was very impressed. Some very challenging/quick greens that appear simple in appearance but deceptive. Very nice club house and dining options. I can't wait to get back to Birmingham in the Spring and play this one again.
