The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Silver Lakes is in Glencoe, Alabama, set on rolling terrain on the edge of Talladega National Forest between Anniston and Gadsden. Golf Digest's Places to Play named Silver Lakes, which features three championship nines plus a nine-hole short course, one of the nation's Great Value courses. The facility is anchored by a number of strong par 4s that play to pedestal greens perched 30 to 40 feet above fairway level. The Backbreaker nine is a photographer's dream, boasting beautiful views of the Appalachian foothills from its elevated tees. You'll know exactly how the Backbreaker course got its name by the time you hit your approach on the first hole. The green sits steeply above the fairway. The Mindbreaker, although slightly easier than the other two courses at Silver Lakes, demands shot-making at its finest. The fairway on the 454-yard, par 4 eighth is split by a meandering creek that must be avoided off the tee as well as on the approach.
