Rating 68.9
Type Public
One half of Sugar Ridge Golf Club is situated in extreme southwestern Ohio while the other half winds up into the Indiana hills. The border location may be unconventional but the setting provides a dramatic backdrop. The course sprawls across rolling hills that are abundant with wildlife. Wild turkey and deer have been known to roam the golf course. The layout has a few parallel fairways though the trees, and hills give each hole a completely secluded feel. The back nine feels more open than the front, but that may only be because of the ponds and lakes that come into play on many of the holes. Throughout Sugar Ridge Golf Club, golfers will find that the par 3s are fairly straightforward and the par 5s have sloping, uphill fairways that make them feel even longer. There are a few memorable par 4s, notable for both their scenery and level of difficulty.

Sugar Ridge

I normally play this course 4 or 5 times a year. Course offers great vistas of the Indiana countryside and wildlife misrepresenting some unique challenges. Course not overwhelming for a high handicapper like myself. In what has been a tough year for local courses due to extreme weather they have managed to stay very playable. Several course improvements in progress on upgrading cart paths. Nearby housing construction leads to a little extra navigation between a few holes. Great rates available thru course site and golf apps.

It’s a decent course

It’s got some nice holes, some stupid holes. Rough was so high could barely find your ball let alone attempt to hit it. But for hot deal can’t beat it.

Don't believe the reviews. Worth the money!

This was a very nice and challenging golf course. There is a lot of different holes that will challenge golfers of many different skill levels. There were opportunities for the course to be in better condition but it was not horrible for all of the rain this spring. Would definitely come back.

I’ve played worse..

I’ll set the scene. Late October, hours before rain was going to hit, and I just wanted to get a quick round in after work. Sugar Ridge is only 15 minutes from my house, so that was my choice. There was no one on the course, and I play pretty quickly anyways, but I was able to play the full 18 in 2:15. That was about the only positive.

The negatives? 1. The greens were very long. 2. The teeboxes were overgrown and full of divots. 3. The fairways were awful mainly because they were burnt out, but just about every fairway had an area that was under repair. 4. The course was soaking wet, but it hadn’t rained in almost a week. 5. The cart I had was struggling to make it up some of the hills on the course. And 6. There were more potholes on the cart path than I care to count.

It’s a shame too because the course could be super nice, and I understand that it’s late October, but it was brutal this time.

It's all about the greens

I have played this course a number of times over the years but the greens this time where in bad shape. To make matter worse, there were a dozen ball marks that needed to be repaired on each green. They need to tell every customer when they check in to repair their ball marks. The rough was also extremely long which caused a few lost balls right off the fairway.

Even better than the first time.

The first time I played there , a tournament was going on which slowed the pace down big time. Second time it was wide open . I love this course and I will play it anytime I have a chance.

Best Shape Yet

Me and my dad played yesterday morning. The course was really wet from all of the recent rain. Aside from that, it was in the best shape I have ever seen. Greens were fast and in great shape. The fairways were neatly manicured. The staff was also very friendly. The price was nice and we got ro play at our own pace. We will be back!
