Hidden Gem with Challenging Greens

This course is short, but has a great layout. Driver is definitely not alway the best play here. This course makes you think about what distance you want to have into the green. Then there's the greens! The greens were in great condition, but not a flat spot to found. Make sure you're below the hole!

Nice little course

Nice course in very good condition. Greens have a good amount of undulation to them. Four parallel holes on the back has a tendency to lead to some problems with golfers crossing between fairways.

Ridgetop is EXCELLENT!

Great value, Great layout, Beautifully conditioned putting greens, easily one of my most favorite places to get a weekday or weekend round in. Also just throwing this out there, because I feel it’s important, the hotdogs they have are some of the best I have ever had at a golf course. Keep doing you Ridgetop. Love this place.

Full 18 Great Layout

Finally got to play whole course, and boy, there's some challenging holes, but the whole course, even at this time is in better shape than any other course I've played this year. Greens run true, but are challenging. Tee blocks are the best I've seen. Fairways are fair, and tree lined making it necessary to hit it straight. Enjoyed my day very much!

Good challenge

Ridge Top has a very nice layout and many unique hole holes. Plenty of elevation changes and varying hole alignments. I drive an hour to play this course and have never been disappointed at the end of the round.

GOING AGAIN!

Only got to place the front, got sick and had to leave, but the front nine was just great! Greens were nice and true, fairways actually had nice grass on them, and the holes were pretty challenging. Going again tomorrow and hopefully able to finish what I started.

Well cared for

Played here after hearing some friends talk it up. It is a fair bit from where I live but it was worth the trip. Not a particularly long course but there are several holes that require placement on your drives. While I'm not always a fan of that, on a shorter course having some of these types of holes is a must or the course is a pushover. The staff was very friendly and you can tell that ownership places an emphasis on care of the greens and fairways.

Very underrated course. Love Ridgetop.

I’ve played a lot of golf courses and Ridgetop ranks right up there at the top. Always in great shape, the greens are always well maintained and challenging. I golf here a lot and it honestly never gets old. Played Shale Creek the day before I played Ridgetop and for as much praise as people give Shale, those same people should give that much praise to Ridgetop, the club houses have obvious differences, but the actual course play and conditions are about as identical as they get. Absolutely love the atmosphere and scenery you get at Ridgetop. Great course, and one of my favorite places to play 18 holes.
