RTJ GOLF TRAIL AT ROSS BRIDGE
HOOVER | 18 HOLES
There was a recent accidental misapplication of fertilizer and herbicide on the already heat-stressed bent grass greens on holes 4-18 at Ross Bridge. This unfortunate mistake has resulted in the rapid deterioration of turf health and playability of the affected surfaces.
The RTJ agronomic team, in consultation with industry experts, is working tirelessly every day to find a solution to this problem.
Beautifully carved into the rolling terrain of Shannon Valley, the scope of this property will amaze even the most-traveled golfer. Ross Bridge was named one of the top golf resorts in North America by GOLF Magazine in 2019 and has been a favorite of Golf Digest editors for the past four years.
The course meanders through indigenous landscape and around the 259-room Renaissance Birmingham Ross Bridge Golf Resort & Spa. Ross Bridge is the fifth-longest course in the world but offers multiple tees for golfers of all levels. Symbolic of an old parkland-style course, ten holes play along the banks of two significant lakes connected by a spectacular waterfall dropping 80 feet between the 9th and 18th greens. A gristmill added to the waterfall reflects the history of this old mining site. The beauty and challenge of each hole leads many to believe there is not one signature hole but possibly eighteen.
Like many other Trail courses, the par three holes are incredible. Considerable
elevation changes combine with water
or other natural obstructions to get your
attention. Large putting surfaces provide
many tempting pin locations that will test
golfers' approach shots.
From multiple high points on the course, you can see the picturesque view of the 9th and 18th holes with a waterfall tumbling between. The 7th hole offers a par five that traverses a ridge high above the rest of the course. The 9th will leave you speechless as it is time to decide how daring you are off the tee. A split fairway allows for either a short challenging route along the water's edge or opt for safer play leaving a longer, more difficult approach to the green. Regardless if it is a par 3, 4, or 5, Ross Bridge stands ready for your game!
