This place was fantastic. Forget the fact that it is a steal at $30, the layout was great. Amazing views throughout the round. And it is a very fair test. I weould play it again for sure!!!

Upon arrival learned that two holes had temporary greens due to repairs and all recently aerated. Then learned tournament was taking place ahead of us and causing delays. Late tee off, over 6 hours for 18 holes. Love this course, failure to notify of conditions beforehand inappropriate.

Friendly, eager staff. Couple of greens on the back were less than stellar (appeared to be getting extra care), but overall condition was very good. Definitely recommend.

If you are a golfer and live in the area and are not taking advantage of the rates and the lay out of this course you are missing out . I am out of state and in the area here every few months and plan to play whenever I can . Great value and a beautiful area. Staff very friendly and accommodating .

A very fun golf course to play. Many elevation changes with challenging tee shots. A few holes require local knowledge from the tee on doglegs, but generally what you see is what you get. There aren't a lot of water hazards but those that challenge you are easily unavoidable. One par three over water requires correct clubbing depending on pin location.

The course is a beauty with many large private residences. The putting green was not in the best of shape. Fairways are generous. Course greens had been dressed and sanded two weeks prior to my round; slow and bumpy, but acceptable.

I would recommend The Ridges for a fun time on a course with high potential to be outstanding with better conditioning.

Love the course, played it many times and will again. Today it is in less than gold shape even considering the season. Fairways with stubble for grass, greens that are like rough.

Paired with 2 guys who were nice but slower than a glacier that backed up the whole course. Nothing my partner and I could do without rudeness.

Will play again but later

The course is not overly long but you are able to hit a variety of clubs and shots. The course was in excellent condition for early spring even with rain 30 minutes before my tee time. The views from the course are wonderful. I can't wait to come back later in the year when the course is in prime shape.

Simply put, they over booked the course, hence, by the time I reached the back 9, it looked like a traffic jam in Atlanta. Too frustrated to finish, I skipped the entire back 9.

So here's the down side to Hot Deals...unless you join the VIP from GolfNow, you really have no recourse when things like this crop up.

If I had gone full price through the club house, which I would gladly pay, then maybe I could have been compensated (somehow)?

The allure for me of prepay via GolfNow is beginning to fall off some...

Maybe more thought on peek season deals could lessen collateral impacts this year?!

Best Regards

P.S.: Before I left the course, I also, tactfully mentioned this at the club house...

It was cart path only which makes it quite exhauting. That along with the goose hockey made for just an alright experience. The Food was great though. Will definitely do Ridges again!!!!!!!

I have played the course many times and enjoy the course layout Beautiful setting and interesting holes At this time, the greens and bunkers are in very poor condition. Greens were very rough and extremely slow - very frustrating to play. No bunkers had been repaired recently and several had badly washed places. Hope this is corrected because this is a good course.
