Rating N/A

White Heron Golf Club (formerly known as Ridgewood Lakes Golf Club) has had many accolades over its history and for good reason. The Ted McAnlis layout is sculptured from lush rolling land and features immaculate playing conditions year round. Water and natural wetlands come into play on 16 of our 18 holes and the resident breeze can significantly change the course from day to day. Yet despite the natural beauty and obvious pedigree of the layout, with four sets of tees the course is still enjoyable for golfers of all levels.

Nice course.

Course in overall good condition. About 5 greens were suffering somewhat. Pins were at least kept away from these areas. Work being performed to try to keep the course in good shape during this drought. Good value for the money. I'll be back.

Very Challengin golf course.

The fairways need better maintenance, greens ware very sandy and were being aired. There was no prior notice of this. No pro shop nor bar. However the course was very challenging and demands a good play.

Great Value

This is a hidden gem in its price range. The course was a little dry today, and the greens were recently aerated. However, it’s a great layout, and well maintained for the price. I’d definitely recommend it.

Greens punched and top dressed

Nice layout but the greens were punched this morning and were impossible to putt. Quit after 9 holes. I will go back in a few weeks.

Undressed greens

I understand you must aerate. I don’t understand the absence of dressing after to make them somewhat puttable. I’m guessing budget issue. A few tee boxes are somewhat bare.

First Time Playing

Great course

They definitely need GPS on carts. First time playing, and lost balls on good drives- there was water where you couldn’t see from tee box. Thought it was perfect, but when you got over the small hill- a water hazard appeared, will know better next time. There is a course layout on back of scorecard, but it has all 18 holes on a half page. Heard the restrooms are nice, but they had a code to enter, and it wasn’t anywhere on the scorecard or cart. Rates were reasonable. Greens in good shape. Tee boxes were dried out-rainy season will help. Check when course aeration is happening- that will be good to know before spending money.. I haven’t golfed in two years since heart troubles, but this will be a course back in the rotation.
