Ridge Golf Club
West Ridge is a fun and challenging layout with a wide variety of holes. There is a fair balance of holes that favor the big hitter and the straight shooter. Course knowledge is an advantage as there are many blind shots. Number 9 is the signature hole an is one of the best short par 4s anywhere. Once you play it you'll have to come back just to figure it out.
The course is built on rolling hills so there are not many level lies. Trees are sparse and the course has a links feel. Wind is a common element to face at West Ridge and its local nickname is "Wind Ridge".
Water comes into play on several holes but the grass and natural rough is not too thick. Several hazards are hidden in pot depressions and behind slopes. Overall the course is fairly forgiving so don't let anything less than a VERY strong wind dissuade you from playing.
The Pro Shop staff and the people in the snack bar are very nice and friendly. There is a driving range and the area's most sloped putting green -- although there's one that's close at Mountain Dell.

The Pro Shop staff is quite friendly and accommodating, willing to make our visit pleasant; the course was in good shape despite the heavy rain and moisture that had recently fallen; the course offers challenges for all player levels; this is my home course that I play regularly in the summer.
The course was opened for players in the afternoon and it seems we can play without any problem. However, we were taken back when we were about to tee off on the first tee ground, a staff member approach us. With a stern tone said that one of us didn't pay for the round. We showed him our receipts and we continue with the round. Later, within the 8th hole, we were approach again by the Marshall that they heard we were driving on the putting greens. This was absurd and mentioned that we are been picked on for no reason and being a regular customers for several years,we decided to never go back. The staff need to be retrain on customer courtesy and treatment. They need to hire a staff that understand how to resolve customers problems without hostility.
Great play for the value
I had no issues getting in to play this course. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. The course has some really fun elevated holes to play. The greens were great! The next time I'm in Salt Lake I'll play here again.
Excellent!!! Will go another round!
Everything was excellent! Next time will go another round with friends!
Very enjoyable links style golf course
Excellent value on GolfNow.com. Very friendly clubhouse staff. Course is new, but growing in nicely. Nice variety of holes so you don't get the feeling your playing the some hole over and over like on so courses. Give the course a try.
Your title calls this West Ridge. It is no longer but is now The Ridge. We used to call it Windy Ridge, a nomenclature that still fit but only for a couple of holes. The rebuilt course is so, so much better than the old. The course is "fresh" and well kept. Clearly, those who planned the work and carried it out knew what they were doing.
Nice Course with Options
Tends to play short which makes it fun. Allows you to focus on different parts of your game / shots you would not normally hit. Good times.
I really liked this course. The links style areas were just awesome. Not like Micjigan.
Front 9 played slow, the course map is poor for judging distances and hazards, take your own gps and figure the shots out that way. Besides that it was nice for the price and I'll probably play it again
great time, great weather,fun course.
was treated great. perfect day weather wise. this is a fun course with a good variety of different holes and is challenging but fair. had a great time and will go back.
Good Confidence Boost
Have played this course a couple of times since the re-design. The re-design made this course a little too vanilla. I realize the course is new, and that it takes awhile to fill in, but the entire course is hardpan. Carts are being driven too close to the greens (because the cart paths are too far away from the greens) and it is not allowing the grass to fill in. Also, there really is not a whole lot of trouble that comes into play, and they didn't make great use of the space. The course is too short and kind of seems crammed in. Will give it a few years to fill in and then maybe give it another shot. Staff is friendly.
No course marshall, slow play, No discounts for Utah PGA book or for locals
