This facility, part of the Robert Trent Jones Trail through Alabama, features three outstanding courses, including two eighteen hole regulation courses and one par 3 course. The Ridge Course is the most challenging because of its hilly terrain. Since this course was built alongside a ridge on the Little Shades Mountain, it has many severe elevation changes which require many downhill and uphill shots. You will even be required to hit some blind tee shots over the hills. The greens are very large, undulating, and difficult to read because of their many subtle breaks. The fairways are lined by the forest, yet they still provide generous landing areas. One of the difficult holes is #9, a 592-yard, par 5, featuring a green sitting on a plateau with a "crater" guarding its front. The back nine is more interesting than the front nine because of the many elevated tees and greens. The signature hole is #17, a 176-yard, par 3, requiring a tee shot that will drop ninety feet to the green, while at the same time providing views of many other holes. The views from off many holes are exceptional because of the course's location between the mountains. The Valley Course is a links-style course which is highlighted by its beautiful rolling terrain. The course was designed across a beautiful two mile stretch of land located between the mountain peaks. The Short Course also has many severe elevation changes, yet almost every hole plays downhill. You can walk the courses, but pull carts are not allowed. Special "trail passes" are sold that reduce the cost of green fees. For more information or tee time reservations call (800) 949-4444.

Best Par 3 Course in the U.S., Sep 06, 2005
from Atlanta, GA
|This is the best par three course I have ever played. All eighteen holes offer varying elevations and scenic terrain. The greens were in excellent shape, particularly for the time of year I played the course (early September) and the frequent rain and hot weather throughout the summer of 2005. If you need to work on your short game, give this one a try.|
