Layout is decent but course needs some work . Greens and tee boxes need to be seeded or reworked. This past Winter/Frost may be the culprit .

Course is suffering from the lack of rain (water). Greens, fairways and tee boxes are struggling. I see evidence of work being done, but will it be enough soon enough. This is a good course. I hope the conditions improve.

I have played the course for 16 years and NEVER have I seen it this bad. What the He...l is going on there.

I use to love driving there and will not anymore unless big improvements are made. I would classify it as a GOAT RANCH now.

As a part time resident at Ridgewood Lakes I am so disappointed to see the course like this. We were here in November and it looked like they were working on the course and trying to get it back to it's former glory. But having just arrived back after 5 months away it's worse than before. I know it's difficult for golf clubs to make money but if you don't spend what you have on the course no one will ever come back. You have to spend money to make money, especially in the golf course business. I don't even have any positive comments, actually I do the golf carts were very good. I really hope they can turn the course around as it's a great layout which deserves to be in better shape.

Last played there in August last year and the new management had started to restore the course to its former glory and were making good progress.. Sadly the winter has not been kind to it and it’s in the worst condition I have ever seen it, in the 10 or so years I have been playing there, clearly the weather has been a factor as it looked dry and patchy and many of the tees are in poor shape. Hopefully a combination of a lot of rain and intensive maintainence during the summer will help bring it back, but meantime I would not be paying the morning rate for this course, cheap hot deals are ok, you get what you pay for but the full rate is not worth it for now. Shame to see, what was a nice course in a great setting, in such bad shape.

Played this course about five or six years ago, and it is a challenging layout with lots of water and sand 8n play, so was looking forward t o playing again. What a disappointment. ! Tee boxes scrappy, fairway patchy, with dead grass on approaches to the green on several holes, and greens in awful condition. One person manning pro shop- which was a table in the side of the restaurant- and the restaurant, if you could call it that. They did have newish carts, no gps. Poor value for money compared to Highlands reserve and Championsgate country club.

Very disappointed. The course has a fairly nice layout but the course is so badly burned out and dry that it is not enjoyable. The tee boxes are dirt and the greens are quite bad. even at the low price it's a hard pass. Sorry the course needs work!

Friendly welcome but too few staff. No professional lady cooking burgers, making coffee trying to book people in. Pace of play dire (over 5 hours for a short course), no staff to monitor/resolve problems. Tee and greens in reasonable condition, fairways need more water/growth.

We had great hopes that Ridgewood Lakes would be back to the condition it was a year or so ago. However, we were disappointed. The cost to play is much too high for the condition of the course. And we were shocked to have to pay $39 each for two sets of rental clubs. We won't make that mistake again. I sincerely hope that the owners will re-invest in the course, water the fairways, tees and greens, trim the trees and bushes and make this into the beautiful, lush course that it used to be. We've given this course a try every time we return to our home - I'm afraid this was its last chance.
