We have played this course a few times and plan to play more in the future. The only complaint we have is when we finished and went to our car to unload our bags (we were only about 15 yards from the bag drop and cart return) the guy ran over to unload our bags. My husband told him he had it. They usually have a cloth and wipe your clubs, which is useless, in order to get another tip. We always tip the bag boy in the beginning. When he realized there was no more tip coming we felt rushed. I didn't even have time to replace the club covers on my clubs, he handed it to me. Other than that, everything is excellent.

I traveled 40 miles to the course, to be told they would not honor my booking through golfnow. They would not contact golfnow so I could get a refund and told me I could pay them the same price I already paid golfnow and play. I would not recommend this course to anyone.

The greens had been recently aerated but still playing the Ridges is a pleasure. The new management team seems to have the whole club and course in wonderful shape for the summer and I will be a regular player this year. Well worth the drive from Franklin.

The course is in great condition. Like the fast greens, but need to stay below the

hole on a few greens. Was paired with 3 members and had a great time. Members

and staff are most helpful. Pace of play was spot on even following a small tournament. Highly recommend!!!

I play this course quite often...and it has gotten better each time. Greens are very nice and challenging to read. The layout is very pretty with mountain views and elevation changes on several holes. Another Willard Byrd successful design.

This was my first time playing this course and was very impressed. The course was in great shape with a fairly easy layout and most holes were forgiving and short. Pace of play was not good but there were members out and it is their course so I completely understood!!

I will absolutely be back!
