Some Quirky Holes, but Solid Overall
Went to Cinder Ridge and teed off at 5:45 AM on a Saturday morning. I brought my push cart & walked 18. Cinder Ridge is not the easiest course to walk, but as a 23 year old former collegiate athlete, I was fine. The front 9 features some really quirky holes that have blind tee shots. However, the back 9 was absolutely fantastic. I appreciate the uniqueness of the course design, even though there are a few holes that are bizarre. The course was in fantastic shape (other than the 18th fairway on other side of water.... Think sprinklers were left on way too long). The bunkers are in impeccable shape, which you don’t see at my public courses in the area. I’d definitely recommend playing at least once. Not everyone’s cup of tee, but it’s good to get out of your comfort zone every now and then.
Issuing our cart..
Enjoyed the course.. but I just bought new irons and wanted to spend some time on the practice range hitting my new clubs.. got there an hour early before our tee time and they would not give us a cart until 20 minutes before our tee time. I play a lot of golf and never had that happen to me.. Plus the driving range was not very close to the club house.. Ridiculous!!! That is the kind of stuff that would keep me from playing there again..
Cinder Ridge - Always a great course to play
Despite all of the wet weather this course has been in the best overall condition of all the courses I played in during April, May and June. It is always well manicured and with sand in the traps. There are challenges in playing here with blind shots off s few tees and precision required. I just love this course even though I usually only score in the 90's. I score in the 80's at times on easy courses at times.
Great shape and layout
COURSE IS in great shape especially with all the rain we’ve had. The layout is fair and challenging. It’s a golf shot making course, not a bomb and wedge to the green. Love that about Cinder.
Cinder Ridge - Very well maintained course
We have had almost daily rain it seems in May. Of all the courses I have played Cinder Ridge had maintained the course to the highest standards! Fairways are very nicely manicured (you can always find your ball). Off the fairway is also cut and easily playable. The greens are also in wonderful condition. Congrats to the head groundskeeper and crew! The staff is always very pleasant. This is a top course and has many challenges due to its layout. You will enjoy this course immensely.
Good Coarse...Terrible staff.
Owners and staff are openly hostile to Golfnow people! Will never play there again.
Long course, great conditions, cool 16th
Great course conditions, well maintained course, lots of cool strategic par 4 holes, good hole by hole recommendations on rocks at tee boxes. 16th hole is short fun mini-island par 3. Good sand wedge or pitching wedge and you are dancing. Two of par 5’s reached almost 600 yds! Wide open fairways made for fun driving off those par 5’s. Clubhouse gentleman very nice and easy going - he had the fun golf spirit and wished all of us a great round of golf! We will be back for sure! 3 hour round on a Friday afternoon! Cannot beat that!!
Country course fun to play but they made us wait to give our carts til 10min before tee time bc we booked with golfnow. Had to wait around to get cart and get ready after that it was fine, need to drop that cart rule for golfnow to get ready.
Very nice course
Very nice course with a lot of fun holes, my wife and daughter played and this course is very friendly for the ladies.
Got out at 615
Early round. Staff had dew sweepers ready to go.
Threesome in front of us were slow. Turns out they were waiting on a 4th. Got slower with him. No ranger to get them moving. Passed them at 10, hour 20 min back nine, 2+ hour front. Course was in good condition despite 4 days of mist and drizzle. Greens were fast and true. Will be back
Always fun to play here. Whatever green aeration had been reported previously has completely healed. Course in great shape. Note that many of the greens are crowned, and a few putts in 2-3 foot range had enough break to play outside the hole.
We went off early as a 3-some and didn't see another golfer until the turn. Front desk let us go off a few minutes early. 3:35 pace and early bird rate.
Some greens are aerated
We we're not expecting aerated greens. It wasn't every hole and only seemed to affect a couple putts in the foursome. One putt did hit a hole and jump sideways from two feet out from the hole. Otherwise course is in excellent condition. The layout is very challenging since there isn't much room for error if you miss fairways or fly the greens. Lost a lot of balls. Drinks and food are a great deal. Staff is always super nice. Highly recommend playing this course. My group likes to play it regularly.
Great course. Love the layout. Challenging but fair Fairways in good shape. Rough is short, thick but very hittable. Greens recently air rated so a little bumpy on some holes but not bad overall. Would definitely play again!
how pleasantly surprised I was
Great course in great shape even after all the rain greens were nice maybe a little soft but that's just the way it was going to be... can't wait to play it when things are a little dryer
Great golf course
Very tough course, great condition. Rough is thick with quick greens. Highly recommend!
