Good for Short Game, That’s About It

I’ve been playing Lake Ridge for over a decade, and there’s a good reason I choose to keep coming back. It’s very cheap to get a tee time, about $9, and that’s about all that it’s worth.
There is almost never a single person on the course, meaning you can take your time playing, or even fly through your round if you wanted to. It’s certainly not an extravagant country club, but it serves it’s purpose as a great place to work on your irons. I personally don’t use any club with a lower loft than a 7i, and most holes can even be played with a Pw, some with a 60°.
The range is a 10-yard deep net, so it’s not very good for seeing ball trajectory, but it’s nice to get warmed up nonetheless. The putting green is actually surprisingly large and has some nice contour to it.
Recently, the course is actually in fairly decent shape. The tee boxes were marginally acceptable, the fairways and greens were well-kept, but the bunkers could use some real work, since not a single one of them was anywhere near playable.
Overall, it’s $9 for a reason, and if anyone wants to complain about this not being a fun little course, I would be the first to argue with them. This course is the sole reason my short game is as good as it is today. It’s literally $1 per hole if you book a Hot Tee Time, so I would definitely recommend at least trying it out if you’re considering it.

Golf Now Stinks

I made my reservation on the GolfNow app and received confirmation while being charged their fee. When I got to the course they said they didn’t have my reservation and that they have had issues with the app. I had to wait another half hour to go off when they finally had an opening.. GolfNow needs to refund me my money for the reservation it did not complete.

Fairly priced 9 hole short course

This is a good course to work on short approach shots, and landing on greens from the tee box. Leave your drivers and irons at home though, you wont need anything other than a sand wedge and a putter.

Very short course but great value

The course is small and even for a par 3 course it's short but overall a very well kept up with course that's great for the money. Because of it's length it's great for families and beginners but the more advanced players will find it too easy.

Great for beginners

This course was very short and not kept up well. This was an ideal place for me and my cousin to take extra swings, work on our short game without having to pay an arm and a leg. We also didn’t have to worry about somebody rushing us while we played. I enjoyed it but would not recommend if you are looking for a beautiful challenging course.

Great executive course

The Lake Ridge Golf course is an executive 9 hole par 3 course. I played the course twice over to get the 18 holes.
Even though you will not need your driver, the course will still test your skills. The hills and valleys give one a good walking exercise.

Great for your short game

It’s exactly as advertised challenging par 3 9 hole course. Best greens in PWC. Tee boxes are beat up but expected on a par 3 with lots of play. Bunkers definitely need some work to many rocks and not enough sand

False advertising

All par 3’s. There is no mention of this on your site. “Cart included” implies that it’s a riding cart, not a pull cart. It’s only a 9 hole, 1,000 yard course, also not mentioned on your site. No photos of the course on your site. This is all false advertising. Unless your site is honest about Lake Ridge, you should remove it from your list of courses.
As is, it reflects poorly on your reputation. Very disappointing.

Nice pre-spring course

This course is no frils hilly par three. All iron play and a good place to work on your pitching. Best winter greens I've played.

Refreshing Change of Pace

A hidden gem of a course with nothing but friendly people. This is a 9 hole par 3 with some challenging ranges. Leave your driver in the car and dial in your short irons. Super glad to have found this course for a morning walk. Will definitely be back.

Short Game Goodness!!!

This Par 3 course is a great place to work on the short game. The hilly course is easy to walk and not too busy, most days. For a small muni-course, it's kept in pretty good condition. I the highest club I've used off the tee is my 7 iron (two holes), on down to my 60 degree (birdie magnet) on one hole. Nice staff, good prices, military discount, and a great place to get out and play when you don't have much time.
