The course was in good shape despite the lack of rain in the area. Being able to hit the ball straight is a must on many of the holes.

Thank you for a wonderful round of golf on a challenging course. It was very well laid out and easy to follow. Only problem was the greens were bumpy other than that we would recommend to anyone.

No bag drop staff , starter, ranger and the bar / restaurant closed at 10am. Carole in the pro shop gave me the impression I was an inconvenience. No welcome , manners or service training . Course is a great layout but the greens are shocking . I won't be back . There are better courses around for the same $

Liked the course a lot. You will need all your clubs.

Each hole has its strong points, and offers a chance to play from multiple tee boxes at a distance that you can challenge yourself without being ridiculous. Lots of water, plenty of sand, but large enough fairways that you can stay out of each if you keep it straight.

Our foursome enjoy the round a lot. Our only smudge was, as it is with most courses in Central Florida at this time of year, aerating greens. The good news it was still great and will get better. We played on a Special Price. Ridgewood Lakes is worth more.

Have played this course several times whilst on vacation.

I have always found it well kept and even during green keeping very playable.

I played in 2016 with friends and we arrived 30 minutes early due to a quiet I4. Despite there being no one on the 1st or even in the car park we were refused a cart key by the the staff member until our paid tee time. Some days later we played again but met another staff member who released us to play when ready, a few minutes early..

I played on 5/1/17 and was on course ten minutes early as it was quiet the desk staff were very friendly. On 5/3/17 guess what, the lady on the desk who I recognised pointed out I had booked via Golf Now so could not start until my exact tee time. I was given a cart key only after stating I would not go to the tee until my allotted time.

As with any course you have a given tee time and with reasonable staff, on a quiet period, you may be released early. Then again some staff members for whatever reason have a rigid rule book. Be warned but enjoy this course.

Booked a Golfnow Hot Deal and was well worth the time and costl. Course was in excellent condition considering the lack of measurable rain for the past 100+ days. Greens had been recently aerated, but were consistent and not difficult to read break. Unfortunately, as result of errant shots, I discovered a few bunkers which needed a little work, but they too were predictable. Started the first 3 holes as a single, but was soon joined by a member, Marty, who also was originally from the Philadelphia area. We completed our round in less than 3 hours, as we were basically alone on the course. He had me meet him at the community clubhouse for cold refreshments after our round. I will definitely return to Ridgewood Lakes in the near future as playin this course was time and money well spent

Course was in great shape except for the greens. They had aerated a few days earlier. There was not enough sand laid over the top for a true roll. They greens were very bouncy.
