Oxmoor Valley/Ridge Courses

Oxmoor Valley is a 54-hole facility in Birmingham, the largest city in Alabama, built on former mining land owned by U.S. Steel. Sculpted from the peaks and valleys of the Appalachians, the courses offer scenic forests, numerous creeks and challenging elevation changes.

The Valley course is tree-lined and dotted with picturesque lakes. The course features beautiful rolling fairways and stretches two miles downrange along a slender valley before returning to the clubhouse.

The Ridge course, with its roller coaster fairways, heavy tree cover and precipitous 150-foot elevation changes, is incredibly photogenic and features some of the most spectacular par 5s on the Trail.

Highland Park Golf Course

Alabama's Highland Park Golf Course was originally established in 1903 as the Country Club of Birmingham, making it the oldest golf course in Alabama. Highland Park has been the site of many important golf events including one of renowned golfer Bobby Jones’s first victories. At the age of 14, Jones played and won the Birmingham Country Club Invitational held at Highland Park. In 1927, the Birmingham golf course opened to the public. In 1955, the golf course was named for Charley Boswell, a Birmingham native, WWII veteran, and 17-time National Blind Golf Champion. His namesake continues to distinguish the greens at the Highland Park golf facilities.
