Played there last week greens have been showing signs of silver dollar fungus. They are on the verge of losing the greens its so bad now!
We'll Be Back
We're glad to have found this gem! We heard that Cinder Ridge was closed, that wasn't the case. Our local course had significant changes which took us here, and happy it did!.
The course was in great shape, along with the layout. Friendly atmosphere, all around. We'll definitely be back!
Excellent conditions, course & staff!!
This was third time playing here in the last month. Excellent conditions continue, sand bunkers full of sand, greens rolling FAST, fairways excellent shape, course just extremely well maintained! And a fun golf challenge with several strategic holes. The 13th hole par 3 is fun huge downhill 110-145yd challenge as well as semi-island green 16th hole par 3 (140 yds).
Golf shop people were super super nice. Personally called me to help me move up tee time just a little to avoid an outing later in afternoon. To me, that’s a very kind courtesy to me/golfers. It helps me to enjoy a much faster round (only took 2.5 hours!!). Think about that, they are cognizant of helping golfers and how to ensure we get in an enjoyable and faster round. Super super kind, genuine and nice people.
We will be back and back and back again!
Thank you Cinder Ridge golf course & staff!!!
GolfNow Customers Not Welcome !
Long line waiting to tee off on first hole. No starter. No ranger on the course. We asked if we could perhaps play the back nine first to speed things up. They asked if we had a GolfNow tee time and told us that the course makes nothing on GolfNow tee times. We had to wait 45 minutes on the first hole alone, on a Wednesday afternoon. The course is nice and was in good shape but we definitely did not feel welcome. I have played the course many times before but won't again. I'm guessing that the course agreed to whatever deal they have with GolfNow. If that's the way all GolfNow customers are treated then they got what they deserved for our round.
Eeks, sorry to hear this. My experience has been the exact opposite and thus, I wanted to add some commentary. I’ve played here three times in the last month and each time booked through Golfnow ‘hot-deals’ and every time the pro-shop staff has treated me like family. Honestly, I’ve always felt extremely welcomed at this golf course. Hit em long and straight my fellow golfer!!
Hot, Windy and Great Fun
We played on a hot and windy afternoon just after it had rained. We found the course to be very challenging although not long. Precise shot placement was necessary. Large fast bowl shaped greens. Pace of play was excellent And the staff was very accommodating and friendly.
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!!
