Not as good as usual

Very disappointed that we hadn't been told it was cart path only and that the greens were sanded and punched.

At the end of the day my husband left his phone in the cart. When he called the next day and told the woman which cart he left it in she told him that it hadn't been turned in. The next day a woman told him the same thing. The third time a guy answered and told him it was right there. Of course no one called us at the number we had left to tell us they had found it.
Very disappointing!! Our previous experience here were good so we are chalking it up to a fluke and will take it it all into consideration in the future.

No accountability

The ridge is a great golf course, however when you pay to play 18 holes and you show up to the front 9 being closed unexpectedly..the experience is ruined. No accountability from the people at the ridge or people at golf now

Tough Track

Golf course was in great shape. Greens were rolling fast and true. Fairways were in good shape. Bunkers needed more sand. GPS on golf cart was accurate. Pace of play was too slow.

Tough layout, friendly staff, but VERY crowded on this day

THEY NEED A MARSHALL AND A STARTER ON BUSY DAYS!

We arrived around 1:30 for our 2pm tee time. Practice area was pretty full which gave us some concern. Then we heard the starter calling groups to the tee including a 5-some! Next thing I know, we find out that we have been paired with a group of 3, so we will be a 5-some as well. Regardless, the front 9 played at slow but decent pace. Then came the back 9. By the 14th hole, there were several groups stacked up on the tee and others languishing in the fairway. We called it a day and it was a good thing as the remaining holes would have easily taken us 2 hours to finish - it was THAT slow...

not easy-challenging

The course was in great shape after the first rain of the season. Busier than I expected for a Wed 1pm tee time. I recommend this course to experienced golfers, tough for beginners.

Challenging and Fun

Challenging and fun layout, I always have a fun time here.. Everything was pretty well manicured and maintained. Two things though: tee boxes could’ve been a little better and greens were bumpy(although, they still rolled out truly and nicely).

Always a Challenge

The course has a good mix of relatively easy, moderate, and downright hard holes -- always a challenge The greens were in great condition and the fairways were excellent. Great time, despite the heat!!

The Ridge teeters

While this course remains one of my favorites they need to do something with the greens they seem to have used an overly large tine when they aerated the greens I don't know exactly how long ago this was and they just never recovered they're bumpy not true they don't roll well.I have been trying to ignore this I have to take any good hard look you can see the lines from where they aerated months ago .I'm not a turfoligist so I don't what can be done to fix this but I sure wish they would it's my favorite course and I will continue to play there it just used to be so much

Always Good

Great layout. Fairways and tee boxes in good shape. Looks like greens had been punched, or attempted to be punched. Even so, the greens seemed like they could have been fundamentally in better shape ... a little disappointing compared to past rounds. Don't know why we don't see hot deals anymore. Again, a very good course ...

Great track in poor condition

I’ve seen recently good prices for the round. Obviously, course management has decided to get as many rounds as possible and let the condition of course go. Really disappointed. Years past this course was the most well maintained! No longer. Definitely out of the rotation.
