Rating 73.5

Tucked away between the mountains and foothills of the Gabilan and Diablo Ranges, Ridgemark Golf & Country Club enjoys a peaceful, secluded setting. San Benito County has been especially hard hit by drought and as a way to make the best of a tough situation, the decision was made to combine the club's two championship courses into one, more challenging layout. Golfers who loved the former courses need not worry. The best holes have been incorporated in the new layout along with the addition of some new and interesting holes, like the tough risk-reward seventh hole. The golf course has plenty of challenges in store including doglegs, strategically placed bunkers, tree-lined fairways, and water hazards. At just shy of 7,000 yards from the back tees, there are some long holes that are especially tough but you'll get some great mountain views from the elevated tees.

Fine course except one major hiccup

I always enjoy the course . The staff is friendly and the course has some challenging holes .
My only gripe was that nothing was mentioned about the course being aerated . That of course lowers the experience . I will continue to play there, but hopefully you will mention that to them .

Great for the discounted rate

Greens were in good shape except for a couple where it appears there was damage or disease. Slow pace was maddening. Quite a few 5 somes and if I were behind where I started I would have quit. Lots of work being done to tidy up after all of the rains but overall a decent track.

Inforce cart on path

The golf course is usually good but this day it was pretty soggy and people were driving off the cartpath and we're ruining the course if you can tell the people that pay at the club house to stay on the path it will be more likely for them to stay on the path I nearly say the sign that said to stay on the cart path but other then that the people working there were very nice and do a great job

Great price and good course

I haven’t played here in a while and I heard they renovated and I must say was for the better the course is in great condition. We had to wait a bit for frost delay but we didn’t mind let us warm up since it was colder than usual. You must watch for signs to let you know where next tee box is that can get a little tricky but it’s manageable. Must say great value for course.

Ridgemark in Hollister

Scenic, with several ponds filled with geese. Nice picturesque homes, view of mountain range. My only gripe was all the $2 charges from Golfnow, that I cannot figure out.

Too Wet

The course is over watered. The fairways and greens were holding water. I created rooster tails on my putts. The course played as if it has been raining for a week. No roll on drive ball plugged when it hit the fairway and totally stopped in the rough.

Good greens but major gopher infestation

Gopher mounds everywhere. The course is laid out ok. The greens and low cost of a round make it worthwhile

You need GPS to navigate the course

The course is in good shape except for the bunkers. Hole layout is funky with a mix of holes from the previous 36 hole design.
Pros: fun course, good condition
Cons: No Marshall’s, no oversight of less than courtious golfers, watch out for the dreaded groups of 6 or more players.
