Beautiful views

This course opened in 1950 and is located on the top of Shades Mountain looking southeast. On several holes, players can see approximately 8 miles over a series of ridges and valleys. Like all courses designed before the wide usage of golf carts, Vestavia has parallel fairways and because of its location close to downtown Birmingham, is surrounded by developed residential real estate.

The course is challenging and its 136 Slope rating speaks for itself. Due to its location on the top slope of a mountain, sidehill lies are common on its 419 Bermuda fairways.

VCC is known locally for its highly undulating bentgrass greens which are challenging to read. The par 37 front side features fairly wide open fairways and three par 5's where the golfer can let out the shaft...from the tips, the hardest shot on the course is the uphill 225 yard 4th to a narrow green with bunkers left. A back left hole location leaves the golfer with a 237 yard shot.

The back nine is quite different from the front with a par of 35 and a single dogleg right par 5. The backside features frequent doglegs that require good tee game control, vs the front where the player can try to bomb it.

The course calls for a player to be able to work the ball in both directions and has plenty of fairway and greenside bunkers.
