Interesting Layout

The Par 4’s on the front nine are are easier than the Par 4’s on the back. Really enjoyed the course and will play again. I’m not a great player so when pace of play is too slow for me that says something.

This is one of the best course in Norcal. Only glitch today was the front 9 greens were in very poor shape. Appeared to have been punched the same day. Starter should have mentioned

Oct 2020

first time here. course was in great shape. fairways and greens in excellent condition.( its been warm in sac this month, the fall thinning of the grass maybe has been delayed.) talk about fast greens ! holy smoke. if you don't have an uphill put don't worry, your next put will be uphill. i'm not a great player and the so this place looked pretty intimidating on line however I will say the fairways are manageable. an errant shot isnt automatically lost. greens are big but multii-teared and raised, need some loft to hold some of the greens. lots of slope. some very picture-esque holes. it was a bit slow - there was a slow foursome a few groups ahead of us. took a little less the 4.5 hrs for the round. Dont beleive we ever saw a marshall come to think of it. The clubhouse is very nice as is the outdoor dining area, overlooking some of the course. The carts have some sort of GPS tracker where they will die if you go somewhere your not supposed to be. Almost had to get out and push. found I could drive in reverse to get back on the cart path. slightly hilly course. some fun holes too. #4 , 9 and 18 come to mind.

Can be better

Don’t understand why they refuse to serve breakfast on the weekends when there are plenty of people willing to grab something. Was told the kitchen doesn’t open until 11 yet there was someone eating breakfast (eggs and bacon) at the bar.

Need marshals on the course on the weekends. 5 hour rounds is too long especially when players are constantly looking for lost golf balls.

Needs a Marshall for hole jumpers

Been lucky enough to book a 2pm tee time here on a Saturday. I thought that would be plenty of time to finish before it gets super dark. Started on time and joined a 3-some. Following a foursome who were a little slow. We gave them some breathing room and next thing you know a group decides to jump on hole 4 from the other fairway. Finished hole 9 just at about 4:40. That group left after hole 9 and started to be a little quicker. Caught up to the group in front on hole 13 because a group of kids jumped in front of them. Of course, darkness fell right on 16 and couldn’t even see the ball on the 17th tee box. This course is still my favorite other than those delays on the weekends. Just left a bad taste after that round.

Liked it a lot.

Visiting Sacramento from out of state. Have played several greater Sac area courses. The Ridge is my fifth course in seven days on this trip (others have been Teal Bend (nice), Whitney Oaks (nice but narrow), and the two at Lincoln Hills (Orchard and The Hills - neither in very good shape). The Ridge is the nicest so far this trip and I intend to go back. Bring your A game.

Great day!

Love the course and the pro shop. Staff were great and very accommodating. Arrive early to enjoy the putting green and driving range. Beautiful area, wildlife, and no worries of shanking one onto someone's rooftop.
