The carts were the highlite

I've played here many times and never do well. It's not an easy course with lots of slope in the greens but in spite of that it's enjoyable. What made this particularly special was that they have gotten new carts and the seats feel like they are made out of soft leather with bolsters to hold you in place bouncing around looking for your golf ball in the woods. I've never ridden in carts with seats this plush.

They are a little proud of their prices based on other courses in the greater area. Greens are in great shape. Bunkers could use a little more sand, but were playable.

Course in really good shape. Greens are fast, but very true. You need to play below the pin!

It’s a championship course.

Scenery, staff, design, maintenance and the price. It’s a good championship course. I played several championship courses in Hawaii, Kawaii, pebble beach, Half Moon Bay and San Diego and British Columbia, Philippines, Thailand and even Guam and Samoa. I don’t know why PGA or LPGA insist to have the championship games only in the back East or Arizona. The only problem the Ridge has is probably the transportation and accommodation. This is good for us, the ordinary players. We need to play golf here more. Thanks GolfNow for getting this golf club on your list.

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.
