Some fun, some chsllenge

30 mph winds and scattered showers did not deter us from a fun round at Hunters ZRidge. Course was in great condition and greens were in good shape with varied pin placements.

Conditions are Deteriorating

This is the 3rd time I've reviewed Hunters Ridge. You can read my prior reviews from 2018 and 2020 for a more complete picture on my thoughts about this course.

I wanted to give an update on the course for 2021. As most know, this has been a dry year in Eastern Iowa, and Hunters Ridge has suffered because of it. The course is in the poorest condition I've seen it. Brown around the edges is okay, but there are areas of the course that have been lost, or are close to lost.

I still recommend playing it, especially with some of the deals to be had online, but don't expect pristine conditions when you go play.

Very poorly cared for course and rude staff

Most greens were unkempt and had really inconsistent speeds and were full of divots. The tee boxes were all very beat up. The cart paths on the back nine are in need of some major patch work.

The staff at the clubhouse were all rude and dismissive towards me and my special needs daughter.

Very playable course - great staff!

Fun course to play, and great practice areas with very nice driving range, chipping green with sand trap, and large practice green.

Great Track

Let me start off by saying I live in Los Angeles and am in the area visiting my future in laws. Snuck out for a round this morning and hit the jackpot with this course. Gorgeous, well maintained track. Looks forgiving but it's not. The high grass will punish you. Staff was awesome. Flew threw 18 (3 hours flat).

A course this beautiful with zero wait in LA would run me $90-$150 on a weekday easy. Hunter's Ridge is $35 for 18 and a cart. THIRTY FREAKING FIVE. I can confidently say that if I lived in the area I'd call off my engagement and marry myself to the game.

Could be better

Tee boxes are in rough shape as well as some greens. Dandelions don’t look like they are dying.
Cart paths need resurfacing. Some older staff are unfriendly. Some holes need signs on directing carts where they should go. Golf pro however is excellent.

The course needs water

Played with my normal 4 some. Greens are in need of water. Super hard, like pavement. Fairways very short and also needing watering. Very windy. We all like the course, Marshal friendly.
