Type Public
Southern Ridge Golf Club, formerly known as Bougainvillea Golf Club, offers some of the most stunning views anywhere in the valley. The South and Estrella Mountains provide a dramatic backdrop to the golf course. Southern Ridge is known for more than its views though, it has a unique layout that combines six par 3s, par 4s, and par 5s. The championship course plays to 6,751 yards. It offers a good amount of length for long hitters but it is still player-friendly enough for beginners thanks to generous fairways and large, undulating greens. Although the fairways are wide, don't be lulled into a sense of security. They are flanked with more than 50 strategically placed bunkers. There are enough challenges for an interesting round but it's not an overly difficult golf course.

improving course

course in very good shape considering that it was recently aerated. bunkers that I observed had real sand.... thank god I avoided them..... I expect a lot of play in the winter if the freeway is completed... 112 temps, so not many golfers but this course always seems to move well.....

Course Condition

This course need a lot of maintenance especially watering, there was a lot of standing water on course and there has been no rain for weeks. Fairways are cut too close. There is no difference if fairways and greens. I like fairways with grass that manicures so I can take a divot with the grass just exploding into oblivion.

However for $14.45 you can't complain, but with weather like we have, there is no excuse to not have plush fairways.

Better hit it straight.

The tees, fairways and greens were decent. But just off the fairway is an infestation of holes and uneven rough so the course is unplayable from off the fairway. I do not recommend. Unless you hit all the fairways.

Needs help

Too many uneven areas where you tee off, muddy in many areas, could be better taken care of.

Getting better.

Use to not like the course. To much dirt and mud. It has improved greatly the last 2 years and you can’t beat the price. Wish they did meal tie ins.

Greens were in great condition! That was where it ends. 18 holes of golf and all ball washers were empty except one! Midday tee time and there were only 5 cars in parking lot. Hope the management can get the course back on track.

Course was wet from all the watering. Greens seemed good, but were bumpy. Biggest complaint was standing water and muddy areas.

For the money if you want a course to practice on, this is your course. Not long so as long as you can hit the ball fairly straight you should be able to score decent. Right now with slow greens you can go for the pins and stop the ball. You will not get much roll in the fairways, but since it's not long, that's not a big problem. This is your $10-$20 course, but in time will be that $30 course.

Fair & Playable conditions. No marshal.

Play here everyweek. Good value. Fair condition. This time a fivesome (rare) of young men, two without shirts, one in a tank top & another two in T-shirts. Drinking and very loud. The starter should have known better. No Marshall on the course ever. Hopefully Southern Ridge does not turn into a Ghetto course. Management "BEWARE".
