Toughest course I’ve played in awhile
I have played several courses, up and down Northern California . And this is one of the most challenging I have played in some time ! My brothers and I enjoyed the round of golf .
Dinuba has the best course around.
Fairways are flush, greens are always good, and the tee. Boxes are clean!
I always enjoy playing this course. It is designed to be similar to heathland courses in England. The course is unique for this area and has matured nicely over the years.
I teed off as a single in the middle of the afternoon and it was wide open. The tees and fairways were in excellent condition; especially for late summer. The were some imperfections in the greens but they were a good speed and held their line well. The bunkers could use some maintenance, but overall the course was in fine shape.
The course has an interesting design that will hold your attention. I would recommend this course to anyone visiting the Southern San Joaquin Valley.
Amazing. Fairways were beautiful, greens were great (fast and smooth) and cold (good tasting) water out on the course.
GK get together
Played with Johnny and the GK crew. Course is, as always, challenging with many deep bunkers, large greens and brutal native grasses.
The course has changed the way it maintains everything. In the past everything was firm and hard. Now it is lush and soft.
The bad is that soft greens mean ball marks and soft fairways mean it plays longer.
The good is that shots hold on greens with nearly every club and tee balls that are borderline stop in the first cut rather than bound into the deep stuff which reduces the pace killing ball searches.
Once the temps are less brutal I am sure the greens will go back to being firm and fast.
Always a definite recommendation for this course from me.
Course was great. Fairways were freshly mowed and looked amazing. Greens were quick and are still recovering from being punched. When the greens are completely back it makes Ridge Creek one of the best courses around.
Consistently The Best
Ridgecreek is by far and away the best course in the Central Valley. The only downside to the entire experience is the lack of shade due to limited trees. However, I do not know of many if any “links style” courses in which foliage plays a part in course design - comes with the territory. I have played the course a dozen times in the last three years and have always been pleasantly satisfied with the conditions, staff, and price (one of the few courses worth the $65+ fee). Go on Monday’s for a special rate or try and catch a good deal on Golfnow!
1st California golf experience.
I had a heart time and met 2 local golfers, Rick and Dan. They play the course frequently and were very helpful with course knowledge.
Reviews I had read recommended to bring extra balls due to the deep rough. Considering this, I bought an extra dozen none of which I needed. I did lose 3 balls but found one for a net loss of 1 ball.
The course was in great condition with well watered fairways with grass cut short so ball ran out well.
Greens were also in great condition, quick and true if I could read them correctly and get right speed.
Overall I highly recommend Ridge Creek Golf Club Dinuba, their staff and great clientele. Rick and Dan were great to play Golf with.
RIdge Creek is one of the best public course in the valley... Fast consistent greens with nice fairways and sand in the traps. Wish the drive was closer though.
A Central Valley Go to Course
Ridge Creek is always an enjoyable Central Valley track. What is usually a strong point of the course, the greens are in serious need of attention. Numerous pitch marks on almost every hole. A few holes still had obvious rings from prior pin placements. On one green I was able to count 5 previous hole locations just on the same half of the green as the current pin location. Speed of the greens was lighting fast and pin locations were tough but challenging in a fun sort of way.
Fairways were a mix of green and light brown grass but offered decent lies throughout for the most part. Some of the skirt areas around the greens were thin with tight lies making getting up and down a challenge with the fast greens.
Sand traps have improved greatly. Once the Achilles heel of Ridge Creek, the green side bunkers are now a plerasure to play out of (if you're into that sort of thing). The fairway bunkers are a different story. the dirt is ok but they have very steep lips to get up and over. It's almost always a guaranteed lob wedge lay up coming out.
Tee boxes were a mixed bag. The ones on the par 3's were horrible in that they were full of divots. The par 4 & 5 tee boxes pretty decent.
Pace of play was good and actually considering it was a weekend it was borderline excellent.
My only complaint was that the restaurant was closed down at 4pm when we finished. Ridge creek is a wonderful facility with a nice pro shop and adjacent restaurant overlooking the ninth green. I always enjoy sticking around for a bite to eat when I have the time (which I did today).
