'Best Golf House Ever': The Oster Golf Houses on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail

This is another installment about Oster Golf Houses. Read Part 1 and Part 2.

WITH HIS CONCEPT FULLY DEVELOPED and tested at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, Rick Oster needed to find another location to expand his custom golf houses.

"I searched the country for an ideal place to build my homes," he says. "That's when I discovered the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail."

Named after the legendary golf course architect who designed more than 500 golf courses worldwide, the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail is 468 championship holes on 26 scenic golf courses at 11 sites in Alabama, a year-round golf playground. Two of those sites are Oxmoor Valley (Birmingham) and Capitol Hill (Prattville), which today are the locations of three Oster Golf Houses.

"I tried to find property as close to the course as possible," Rick says. "I built a home right by the Oxmoor Valley clubhouse."

Oxmoor Valley is the home to three lush, rolling 18-hole layouts: the "Ridge," "Valley" and "Short" courses. "We had so much fun playing cards, pool and golf at the Oxmoor Valley courses," said Scott, a guest at Rick's Birmingham house. "We barely ventured off the property."

The Trail was a great find, not just for golfers but also for Rick. "Everyone I met along the Trail was a pleasure to work," he says. "Based on the success of the Birmingham home, I purchased an acre in Prattville at Capitol Hill overlooking the golf course."

The first Prattville home was completed in 2013 and the second home opened for guests in April 2015. The side-by-side homes share a practice putting green and are within a hybrid shot of "The Legislator," one of three 18-hole championship courses at Capitol Hill.

"Best golf house ever," wrote Paul about the second Prattville house. "Exceeds expectations. Everyone in our group rated this house the best in our golf getaways so far. You won’t be disappointed."

Each Oster Golf House accommodates eight people and is designed for comfort, fun and relaxation – "pampering" guests, as Rick Oster likes to say.
