Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Cambrian Ridge

101 SunBelt Parkway
Greenville, AL 36037


Known by avid golfers as one of the most beautiful and most challenging stops on the Trail, Cambrian Ridge in Greenville lies just 40 miles from Montgomery. It is well worth the ride for any golfer looking for 36 holes of jaw-dropping golf.

The Sherling/Canyon combination was named by Golf Digest as the third best new public course in America in 1994 and 13th in their list of America's Top 50 Affordable Courses. This combination was also named by Golf Digest's Places to Play as one of the nation's 40 Super Value Courses.

Cambrian Ridge was immortalized on the 2003 Microsoft golf game, Links, and was the subject of an extensive ad campaign in Golf magazine promoting the game.

Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail At Cambrian Ridge - Sherling Course

The Sherling nine may be the best nine on the entire Trail. Hole No. 4 is a gorgeous par-3 over a corner of Sherling Lake. The green tilts at an angle away from the tee and stretches over thirty yards from front right to back left, with plenty of undulations in between.

Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail At Cambrian Ridge - Loblolly Course

The Loblolly nine, with its gently rolling fairways, cathedral-like pines and water-fronted greens, exudes a stately, Augusta-like quality. The tee shot on the par-4 seventh hole is elevated and played to a valley, and the approach shot is uphill to a beautifully bunkered green.

The Canyon nine, carved from former hunting grounds where deer blinds remain nailed to the hard-wood, is a thrilling stretch of target-style golf with Hole No. 1 being a 501-yard par-4 that drops some 200 feet from tee to fairway.
