Fun but slow. To be expected...winter!

My family has a great (albeit long) day at the ridge today. Because of the winter wetness it was cart path only and resulted in a 5 hour 10 minute round. The good news is that everyone was slow including us so there wasn’t a lot of waiting around. For a few days away from
New year the course was in great condition and we enjoyed the cool and sunny weather.

The cart lady was extremely nice and all of the staff was friendly. At the turn we grabbed a few Jax bacon burgers with garlic fries. Oh so good, but probably cost me a couple strokes.

The greens are fast and brutal for a Bogey golfer and humbled me all day.

Overall a wonderful day and we will definitely be back in the drier season for another round.

Gem in the hills!

Ever since moving to the Greater Sacramento area in 2016 I try to play different courses around the region...and every time I keep finding myself back at the Ridge! The price is right (often on golfmoose, hard to beat) and the facility is always great! Greens are kept well, tee boxes are great, fairways, when I find them, are solid. Love playing the ridge, and looking forward to our next trip up the hill!

Fast Green, even after sanding

Played yesterday and overall, course was in great shape. Would rate it a 5 star but greens recently sanded but give it a couple weeks and it’ll be back to 5 star. That said, even with sanded greens, they still play very fast. This is one of the best groomed public courses you can play.

Poor greens

I understand the greens need to be sanded, but they
were also too dry and the fairways too wet.

What a Value!

I am not a HUGE fan of RTJ Jr designs but this course felt a bit different; some of the bunkering and green complexes felt like MacKenzie styled design. Course was in really good shape and greens were outstanding for being one of the last groups of the day.

And for $35 on a Saturday with a cart, it's hard to come up with a better value in the Sacramento area (we walked Haggin Oaks in the morning for $50).

Will definitely be coming back if I am in the Sacramento area.

Challenging course

Love playing this course. It's a challenge yet has a few "friendly" holes. Couple of uphill Par 4's difficult to reach in regulation if you're not a long ball hitter. A few greens (with tough pin placement) will make you think twice which way the ball is breaking. Overall the course is fun to play and I would highly recommend.

No goose poop

Best course I’ve played all summer hot deal + rewards got me a round at the Ridge for $10. Fantastic shape for late summer greens will test your A game. It’s like Auburn Valley and Whitney Oaks had a demon child and his name is The Ridge. Played last season and the goose poop was terrible... but not a problem yesterday all in all a great day for golf!
