The Ridge course at Predator Ridge Golf Resort is a brand new design in British Columbia's Okanagan Valley. Opened in the summer of 2010, the course was designed by Canadian architect Doug Carrick.

With the new Ridge course opening in 2010, the original course at Predator Ridge Golf Resort is now the Predator.

If you're looking for an old-school layout, you're at the wrong place. In fact, you're probably in the wrong part of the world.

Like a roller coaster, the ups just build excitement for the next plummet.
