Rating 68.9

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.

Butchered layout

The course was generally in okay shape. The layout leaves a ton to be desired. There is so much travel between holes it isn’t funny. The travel from 13-14 and 17-18 is an absolute joke. Those are the worst ones but the rest are not much better. I’d consider this a cart only but not because of the hills.

Sugar ridge

Course was in good shape. Staff worked around a miscue with golf now and an outing. I can't find a way to communicate with golf now on a schedule problem. Sugar Ridge worked us in.

Too early in the season to judge

The good: challenging but fair layout, played round in three hours, beautiful scenery and wildlife (saw several deer and wild turkey). Staff was friendly and let us out early to beat the rain.

The bad: Course conditions were poor and soggy. Greens were shaggy. Can’t hold it against them in early April.

I will definitely be trying them out again once the weather is warmer to see how the course conditions truly are.

Wouldn’t honor golf now price

We booked reservations on Golfnow and drove all the way out there to find out they wouldn’t honor the price we booked it at. It was extremely disappointing and the worker was very rude and not accommodating. We will not be back. .

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.

Course in best shape

Course was in best shape I’ve seen in a long time. Rough was under control, greens good shape and speed too. Enjoy golf a lot more out here when it’s in this condition.

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.
