Pleasant surprise

Haven’t played this course in over a decade and didn’t remember liking it, but we had a great round and I really enjoyed the course despite very wet conditions. Can’t wait to come back, I’m going to be a regular player around there!!

Must play

What a great course. Challenging with some narrow fairways, tight pin placements today and a bit breezy. If you never played or haven't played in a while this course is a must to challenge yourself and ability with accuracy.

Great conditions at the Rug

This has been one of my favorite courses for years. Currently it is in excellent shape. The greens are a little beat up, but otherwise it’s great.

Nice layout

Ruggles Ferry is a very good course. Friendly staff,course condition was above average,not too long which is good for us short hitters,although the back tees were over 7,000 yds. Not for me. I would recommend this course to my friends.

Great Course

Played with a group of 16 and had a wonderful time. The course was hard and fast due to the lack of rain. The over all course was in good shape. Course gets a lot of play so there are some rough greens on par 3's from pitch marks but nothing that shouldn't be expected. Pace of play this day was kind of slow . There were quite a few groups out there on a Saturday morning, which is to be expected. Would definetely recommend this course if you haven't played before.

7 hr day of golf

for such a nice course,
its sad that my round took 5 hrs and 45 min. to play. if you figure in the time it took to travel to and from the golf course, it was a 7 hour day of golf.
i think number 14 is a fairly long par 5. when we pulled up in the cart; there were 2 groups waiting to tee off, 1 group out in the fairway and 1 group chipping to the green. counting us, thats 5 groups on 1 hole! it was brutal all day. no rangers to help speed up play. from what we could tell, there was a counter guy, a girl in the concession area and that was it! we did notice a truck at the maintenance shed so maybe that person was in there asleep.
its a nice course and those 2 employees were super friendly.
But the pace of play was brutal.
cant say it enough.
I will mention that it was Cart-Path -Only.
thats just unacceptable.
they had - had rain, but no more than the couse we
played the day before, 15 min away. the other course was 90deg rule.
if its wet enough for cart path only, they should offer everyone a raincheck if they so desire, before they start the round, instead of walking a 6500 yard course in damp grass.
in my opinion it should have been 90 deg, but i dont run the course.
if i ever go back, ill call before i leave the house and check on the cart rule for the day.

yours truly,
wasted saturday

Pleasant surprise

Was looking to play somewhere close to where I was staying and choose here. Nice mix of holes with some being tight off the tee and some more open. Elevation change make club selection extremely important. Course was in very good shape although the greens appeared to have been aerated a few weeks prior. Staff was super friendly.

Conditions for this time of year were great! Nice to go to a place and get treated right. They always seem to remember our names, and are so nice. Can’t wait for the warm weather to arrive!

Green Ruggles

I haven't played RFGC since early this spring when there was no grass, but they have plenty of green grass now and some pretty thick rough. Only one complaint for the course, the practice putting green was far more faster than the actual playing greens. It was a shock how slow the greens were because they are normally pretty fast. The other complaint is they didn't have any chicken salad sandwiches and for us playing twilight, eating at the golf course will be our dinner and when you've been looking forward to something and then they don't have it is kind of a bummer. All in all though, staff was great, course was good, hopefully they speed the greens up a bit, I give 4 outta 5 stars!
