Restoring Glory To This Once Great Club
Big changes will soon be coming to The Pine Ridge Golf Club in Beverly Hills, Florida. As you will see when you visit, Pine Rudge is still a work in process. This Citrus County golf course is situated in the middle of the 4800-acre Pine Ridge Equestrian and Golf community, in Citrus County, Florida. The course sits 161-feet above sea level, which explains the elevation changes and gently rolling hills, a welcome change from the flat, mundane terrain of most Florida golf courses. Pine Ridge was designed by Brian Almony and originally opened for play in 1982. In the early days, Pine Ridge offered its members an all-encompassing golf facility with a full-length driving range, a short game area, and a practice putting green. In addition to the par 72 championship layout, there was a par 3 executive course, Little Pines.
Pine Ridge still has some fair practice facilities. There’s a generous sized putting green, a driving range, and a short game area. The chipping and putting areas are the perfect place to improve your short game. The driving range at Pine Ridge is only about 200 yards long and is the perfect place to warm up your iron game. The practice green is great for getting to know the speed of the greens before heading to the first tee.
As you make your way around the layout, you’ll encounter a variety of hole styles; woodland framed holes with rolling fairways, wide-open holes that let you bomb away off the tee, blind tee shots, and challenging greens. Although the course winds its way through a golf community, the course is not crowded with home sites; in fact, the houses that you do see sit well back from the fairways.
While the current conditioning of the course is nothing to write home about, Pine Ridge Golf Club is a great place to tune up your game. Narrow fairways require accuracy to keep your tee shot in play. The greens are small - probably from the years of neglected maintenance - which can test your accuracy and shot-making ability. Many greenside bunkers sit about 10 yards back from the green, meaning you’ll need to be able to hit longer bunker shots with some spin.
For me, the par 5, 8th hole is the most memorable on the course and at only 464 yards from the White tees, it’s not going to overpower anybody. A good drive to the top of the hill sets up a risk/reward opportunity if you want to go for the green in two. Once you get to the top of the hill, you’ll find that the hole plays downhill and doglegs to the right. Fronting the right side of the green is the only water hazard on the course and the small, narrow green only adds to the difficulty of the hole and requires a very accurate approach shot to score well.
Number 1 is my favorite par 4. The first hole at Pine Ridge Golf Club plays 383 yards from the White tees and starts with a blind, slightly uphill tee shot. Once you get to the top of the hill and can see your approach shot, you’ll realize just how picturesque the hole is. A good drive will leave a short approach shot into a small green fronted by a bunker on the left and another on the right.
The course’s best par 4 is followed by my favorite par 3. The 161-yard second hole requires a well-struck, accurate tee shot into a long, narrow green protected in front by bunkers on either side and another on the right side.
After your round, grab a bite to eat or your favorite adult beverage at The Pub at Pine Ridge. They offer a fully stocked bar and a casual atmosphere where you can relax and enjoy the natural surroundings. The food is great, from tasty buffalo chicken wings to mouth-watering burgers to some of the best flatbread pizza I’ve ever had. The bar & grill is open daily.
Pine Ridge offers a variety of memberships. All memberships include unlimited greens fees and cart fees, range balls, and preferred tee times. Single and family memberships are available and are payable on a monthly basis. Check out the website for more information.
In addition to having an active membership, Pine Ridge is a great place to host family get-togethers, prom nights, anniversaries, or other special occasions. Whatever you have in mind, the professional staff at Pine Ridge is committed to helping you make your event a success. They offer a variety of hassle-free event packages to choose from or they can customize one to fit your specific needs.
Tournament hosting is another thing Pine Ridge does well. They will work with you to customize your event based on the size and menu you want. Their 'Standard Outing Package' includes green fees, carts, and range balls.
Worse course ever
Without a doubt this course lacks any kind of course management. The greens are nothing but dirt , the fairways and tee boxes are no better. I will never play there again even if they paid me!!
No way jose
While all the courses in the area are in great shape because of all the recent rain, Pine Ridge appears to be putting the least amount of effort to keep the course in a playable condition. The greens are the main complaint. 80 percent of the greens look like a bomb went off in the middle with large sand filled craters and no grass in them making it impossible to have a putt roll in any type of normal manner. My group quit after 9 holes and went to Brentwood Farms golf course which looks like a gem compared to this dusty dog track. I won’t be back. It would not surprise me to see this course close.
Frankly the greens are a mess right now. The tee boxes are only slightly better. The fairways were in good shape. For a longer course I think it is an excellent value, offering a good mix of easier and harder holes, wider and more narrow fairways, some interesting sand trap layouts, but if you are a very good golfer looking for optimal conditions, this may not be the course for you. The conditions of the greens will drive you insane. For duffers like myself, I think it's an excellent option.
Tee boxes and greens were in terrible condition. Fairways are getting better since the last time I played here.
These were the worst greens I have ever played on. Grass on the fairways was very sparse. Tees were uneven and dug up. All in all not a very nice course.
The back nine needs a lot of work particularly the fairways! This is one tough layout with a good amount of elevation changes and small greens
Great day for golf
First time at course - we had a great round. Price was great for course conditions. Great restaurant and friendly staff.
No problem with booking. The course is in the worst condition a golf course could be. My friends and I will never play there again. Sorry I didn't take pictures.
Staff very nice but the course from tee boxes to including greens were terrible. I won’t play it again this year. I hope
the new management can make it back to a golf course. Sorry!
Not Up to Par
I wish that I could write a good review but I just can't. This course is in very poor condition. The greens are patched with sod, bare spots and white sand on most. It is impossible to make putts even within a couple of feet. The fairways are not much better than the greens. There are many bare areas. Bottom line - don't waste your time or money at any price at this time.
Pine Ridge golf course Beverly Hills
The fairways were awful the greens had grass in about 50% of the greens and I couldn’t call it grass either hard packed dirt you could not putt your ball straight it would deflect off all the bad grass and humps would NOT ever go back don’t waste your money
Spoke to owner Jerry in clubhouse about poor greens, and he said he will hire new group soon to improve the course, especially the greens. I hope so, as I have played when the greens were nice, in the past.
This could be a top course in view of its Nice lay-out. However both fairways and greens were in a horrible state.
We had returned after a round last year, to see if the course was in better shape, but unfortunately not the case. Not suitable for serious golf.
