The rolling countryside occupied by The Ridge Golf & Gardens (formerly known as Buck Ridge Golf Course) provides an ideal landscape for a round of golf. The nearby farmhouses add to the course's rustic appeal. The layout closely follows the natural contours of the land and trees, ponds, and landscaping were tactfully added to blend seamlessly with the natural terrain. There are a total of five ponds, which come into play on eight holes. A number of bunkers are strategically placed around the large greens and there are also rough areas to watch out for. Although the golf course is relatively young, the skillful use of the mature trees makes it seem as though it has been around much longer. The eighth hole, the layout's longest par 3, is one of the toughest. It plays directly over water to the right side of the green. Before playing The Ridge Golf & Gardens, golfers can warm up on the large practice green.

Barbara & Bruce Maryville

My wife and I travel in our motorhome and play golf as much as we can in different states and cities. We were camping in Delaware Ohio and the weather was perfect the day we played golf at The Ridge Golf and Gardens, Maryville Ohio. The course was under new ownership (reason for the condition) and for an Ohio course it was in average condition. The green were very slow and needed some time to come back due to lack of watering. What few sand traps there were they were in average shape? Many of the sand traps were full of grass and weeds, no sand. The staff was helpful and the club house and restaurant were newly remodeled. The course is mostly flat with a couple holes with both left and right dog legs. I would recommend playing this course for the value if you are in the Maryville Ohio area, easy course and a great Hot Deal value.

Steadily Improving

I am so glad the new owners have started taking care of this course. I have been playing here for a few years but stopped early last season when the conditions went downhill. Greens are definitely improving. Fairways are very reasonable. It looks like they are starting to work on the sand traps too! I just hope this course continues to get the traffic it needs to stay open. Fun/challenging layout.

Friendliest staff

Fun course, amazing staff. Greens still need some work but improving. I would like to have some real sand in the traps. Accuracy over distance is the key for a low score here. New carts and a freshly landscaped parking lot are a nice touch!

The sand traps all had grass in them and the heather had all been mowed down. It felt like I was playing in a farmers field except for the water challenges.

Thank you for your review and your visit to The Ridge. We ask you to keep in mind, the course was in receivership for the last 3 years. That led to multiple years of very minimal water, fertilizer and upkeep on the entire course. Under the new ownership, we are making strides daily to improve the overall play of the course.

This is a major undertaking of fixing irrigation, equipment updates, reseeding, transplanting, and most importantly green repair.

We invite you to return, but request you allow some time for the planned updates to occur. We promise you will see constant improvements month by month.

Still a work in progress

To be fair, one can tell effort is being put into the course but it is going to take more time. New Yamaha carts and remodelled club house are a step in the right direction but most of the greens are in pretty bad shape with bare soil exposed making a putt roll like it's on the surface of the moon. If the new owner can sustain maintenance, it will be a gem. Maybe take out some fairway bunkers to focus on some greenside bunkers. Do what you can to revive the course because it's a beautiful track.
