Pace of play was ridiculously slow

The course conditions and staff were top notch. The first 9 holes took 2 hours and 50 minutes. The back 9 was proving to be even slower so we quit after just 12 holes. After I called the pro shop while waiting on the 10th tee they sent a staff member out to try to speed the pace of play. Kudos to the staff for a quick response but earlier encouragement by monitoring cart GPS feedback may have helped more. I'm glad we didn't pay the posted price for the course.

Challenging course in very good condition

I've played this course many times, and it's always in good condition. This time, the greens were not as great as they usually are, they were a bit shaggy, but not pockmarked. I guess they hadn't cut the greens that morning.
Other than that, a good outing. Looking forward to my next visit.

All day? no thanks play somewhere else

Pretty course but terrible day. Had to wait on every shot. Pace of play is glacial. Marshalls are worthless. 5.5 hours. I won't be back ever.

Still very good course but new golf carts was even better

I had previously played this course months ago and had to wait more than an hour for a cart; not Covid related just a bunch of old carts that had maintenance issues. Now that they have new carts I will be playing this course more often. Course is challenging but fair, staff is very friendly, and the facilities are top notch.

Still a classic

This is a golf course I have played occasionally over the years, and have always enjoyed.
Today the staff was first rate and the course in solid condition despite the dry year. Greens were fast and true. The course was a little wet as we are expecting a heat event, but eminently playable.
My only gripe is that we ended up behind a fivesome playing the wrong tees. Note to men: you do not lose your manhood if you move up to an appropriate tee box.
Many thanks to the Ridge and staff.

First Time Playing

This is a fun course

First time because it is 40 minutes from downtown. It is worth the trip. I liked the layout, course is in good shape (greens are tough!) Some fairways were sketchy but, most were good. It is a good value.

Opportunity for improvement

Came as a single asked pro shop to make sure I was paired with others bc course isn’t well marshalled . I was paired with a three some but when I came back to tee off they told me the three some left already
First problem is they don’t call people to the tee consistently if at all
They also obviously didn’t pay attention to my request either
The staff is young and a bit stuffy
They should greet people with a smile
It would make a difference
What I experienced was staff and their friends sitting on a couch watching golf staring at me instead of being engaging
Besides this there is a lot of bad etiquette being allowed on the course such as carts literally being driven onto greens and since the course isn’t marshaled it is going unchecked
One last thing all in the spirit of helping the course here is they are one of the only courses in California which you can’t apply your tee off/golf now promo codes too.
A spirit of humility and appreciation of the patrons would really make this an a plus course bc the course itself is one of the best anywhere.
Blessings
