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.

Don't spend your money

Course was a very nice course a few years back, used to be 2 18 holes. Now its one 18 hole course spread soo far out you can get very lost trying to find the next hole. Course also isn't kept in great condition. Staff was nice but Its more like they feel bad for you wasting your money. Also people who live there have expressed the displeasue of the facility going down hill, met them at the club house. Golf somewhere else.

Ridgemont golf experience

This was by far the worst golf experience I and my 4some experienced in my 50+ years of playing golf. We played behind 2 ill mannered 4somes that played as 8somes at least half of the 18 holes. They were drinking and driving their carts dangerously throughout the 18 holes, never asking us if we wanted to play through. We waited almost every hole. It was a 6 hour round. To top the round off, on the last hole, one of their group hit a ball back towards us while we were on the tee box. We were on the 18th hole tee box at the time. My son drove out to the group of now 10 people to ask them to please show some respect and course etiquette . Before he could get out of his cart he was attacked and assaulted by several of the guys in the group and ultimately held and hit in the face. After this assault we went back to the club house and reported the incident to the staff. From the beginning of round we reported this groups behaviour (playing as an 8some) and in the middle of the round. They were unable to offer any assistance. They had no staff that were available to go out on the course to resolve the situations. After speaking with the staff management the next day, they accepted very little responsibility for this very serious incident. My group will certainly tell our friends who will tell their friends and so on of the very poor course management practices and lack of responsibility to take care of their golf patrons. I would highly recommend that "Golf Now" discontinue any affiliation with the Ridgemark golf course for the lack of responsibility that the management staff has displayed.

Fun course to play.

The greens are rough. The course is drying out with plenty of ball roll. Still fun to play.

Sad

I have not played here in 20 years. It used to be very nice. It was sad to see all the greens were crappy and full of fungus. Not a lot of water and the course layout is poor.

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

Pathetic

This course used to be one fore premiere courses and a great value. Course is in terrible condition and with all the rain we had in winter should be in excellent condition. Wasn’t worth the $60 to play! Green were terrible and bumpy!

Pay the extra 30-40 and go play San Juan oaks!!

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.
