Venture 240 miles northeast of this week’s PGA Tour venue, the Country Club of Jackson, to the Renaissance Birmingham Ross Bridge Golf Resort & Spa, and you’ll find a truly unique dose of southern hospitality.
As one of GOLF’s Top 100 Resorts in North America, Ross Bridge has all of the luxurious sophistication you would expect: 259 beautifully appointed guest rooms (all of which include balconies), an onsite spa, and close proximity to the amenities of downtown Birmingham.
Additionally, the resort boasts one of the marquee courses on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. At 8,191 yards from the tips, Ross Bridge is among the longest courses in the country, and after enduring such a staunch test, the Clubhouse, the course’s onsite restaurant, has an equally formidable cocktail at the ready.
Golf Tea, a delicious blend of sweet tea vodka, simple syrup, muddled mint, fresh lemon juice, and a traditional southern sweet tea topper, is the perfect way to cap a long day on the course. The popular post-round refresher is similar to a traditional alcoholic Arnold Palmer, but sans lemonade.
Pair the beverage with one of the Clubhouse’s modern takes on Southern cuisine, like macaroni and pulled pork, and you have a dynamic and satisfying duo that will suitably fortify you for another day’s play.
