Great Course!

Love this course, greens are getting very speedy but still holds shots well! Fairways have solid run out and if you find the speed slots, you’ll get extra yardage!
My only concern is the bunkers. I was in 4 bunkers and it’s not total hard pan, they do have a layer of soft(er) sand, but the club just bounces underneath off the harder pact dirt and it’s bladed nearly every time. Hopefully they’ll put some new sand, and they’ll be back to good soft sand throughout. But overall, it’s a great course! Mid afternoon rounds are going to get tougher with the heat that’s coming! Hydrate!

Great course

First time at this course. Drove 3 hours to get here to play.l The layout was excellent. Pace was great.
The greens were in excellent shape and rolled out very well. The only issue is that the course has a lot of bermuda grass and it is still dormant. Another month and the course should be really nice. I would wait that month before I would play again.

One of the best courses in the Fresno Area

This is a course that I play at a lot. I typically play during Pink Mondays when I am not in school(Teacher). But lately have been playing out on the weekends and surprisingly, there isn't a surge in weekend warriors like myself. This makes the course play fairly quick.
The course as taken a beating from the rains we've gotten, it's always in good shape but some of the low areas on the fairways have collected water and it drains but it's still muddy. Shocked that on some holes it was not cart path only, despite actually staying on the path to avoid making areas worse. But playing lift clean and place with my group was in effect.
This course is by far one of the tougher tests in the Fresno area, which makes it one of the better/funner course around, Hitting driver on Par 4s and Par 5s isn't always a must, especially when there is so much long grass to penalize your shots off line.
All in all, Ridge Creek has one of the best courses in Fresno area, and the Practice Facility they have with the unbelievable short game area, and multiple range areas should stand up against the best in the state!

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.

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.
