Silver Lakes is part of the Robert Trent Jones Trail, and is located about two hours west of Atlanta. Known as one of the toughest courses on the Trail, there's three separate championship 9's and a short course. It borders the Talladega National Forest and is routed on rolling land with plenty of water features.
The Backbreaker nine is at 3,808 yards, The Heartbreaker at 3,814, and the Mindbreaker at 3,642 yards, all from the back tees with four shorter tees, and with any combination of nines, the slope ratings vary from 142-147 from the tips. The holes roll through the hilly landscape with tall native fescue grasses bordering. There's ample bunkering throughout, both in the fairways an around the green complexes. The greens are narrow, raised and contoured, with severe undulation.
