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.
The Canyon nine was 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.
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 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.
