Nice Course but Boring

I have to admit, I was disappointed with the course given the name (Ritz) and the fact that they have the PGA Father & Son there. The course is nice and well maintained, but there isn't one hole where you stand on the tee and say WOW. It's a nice layout, but boring. Nothing stands out (except the prices for everything). If offered, I'd play it again, but would probably take a chance on a course I've never played before I came back. Staff was great and attentive.

Stay Away. For now

Conditions are deplorable for the cost. Stay away until it heals. Not nearly worth the price at this time. Staff could not have been more accommodating.

Very good resort course

This is a well maintained resort course. Tee shots are to very generous fairways. Approaches are more challenging. Green speed was smooth and very quick. Course was not over seeded but in excellent condition. Staff was superb. I used the caddie option and loved the experience.

Conditions were amazing. Staff was incredible. I think the back 9 is the most entertaining 9 I’ve ever played.
Thanks again and see you next year!!

Ritz is the best for golf!

This is one of my favorite courses to play, and I love when I get to play for a good price! It's right near my house, and it's in pristine shape! Also, check out PNC Father-Son Challenge here if you're in town in December, it's such a great event!

A beautiful day.

We had a very nice day, playing well. Very well received. The way I know The Ritz.
What I liked was that what we bought in the course, we didn't had to give tip. It was already included!!
The girl said 30, and she didn't accept tip, because it already was included. I would love when this was the rule in the whole country.

Great layout..would have liked notice about punched greens

The lay out of the course was great. Just didn’t like that there was no notice about the greens being punched. Other then that this courses lay out is a lot of fun.

Fantastic day!

This course is about what you would expect out of the Ritz-Carlton. Lush conditions, incredible service, excellent practice facilities (range, bunker and chipping and putting green). The greens has been punched and it was still playable. Definitely have to play this course if you have the opportunity!!!
