Set on rolling terrain at the edge of Talladega National Forest between Anniston and Gadsden is Silver Lakes, home to some of the most scenic golf you can find. The Heartbreaker nine is dubbed by many as the most challenging nine on the Trail from the championship tees. Consider the eighth hole, a par 3 that plays over 200 yards across water and uphill to the green, or the 450 yard par 4 ninth with water rippling down the entire left side of the hole. The beauty of Silver Lakes is the multiple tee selections (up to 12 on some holes).
The Backbreaker nine is a photographer's dream, boasting beautiful views of the Appalachian foothills from its elevated tees. The par 5 seventh, a 623 yard thriller (466 from the novice tees), brings water into play not once, but twice.
The Mindbreaker, although a tad easier than the other two, demands shot-making at its finest.
The Short Course at Silver Lakes is arguably the most demanding collection of one-shotters on the Trail. There's water in play on seven of the holes, including a 12-foot cascade beside the sixth green.
