Type Public
Par 72
Length 6106 yards
Slope 123
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.

This is one of those courses that you want go back and play again after every hole. A ton of elevation change from tee box to green and undulating fairways and greens. The greens were in great shape. Considering the lack of rain for the last few months - the fairways were surprisingly good. We'll be back

Played it a few times.

The course is nice. The greens were in good shape. The only problems I had was the guy swinging my clubs.

Pretty, challenging course not such good management

Lots of elevation changes on this course, and many of the holes have lethal right side misses.

Had the first tee time and as we made the turn to number 10, there was a league on the next four holes with stacked up players picking holes to shotgun to... not much chance of playing the back nine. Inside the clubhouse we were told no refund since we booked thru Golfnow, so buyer beware!!!

Interesting Course

This is a fun course to play that has many interesting holes and elevation changes. On the down side, the course is very disjointed going from #7 to #8 and it is far away. There has been a lot of work put in to improve the course and hopefully the tee boxes will get worked on next...

Very nice course

Sugar Ridge was a very unique golf course, they had some very nice bar for a good elevation change. Do you want to be a good ball striker and be able to control it whereas you have to place it in some narrow fairways

Best Greens in Cinti

Of the various courses I play, Sugar Ridge has the best greens. They all run fast, but are very well maintained. The rest of the course is well kept, but the greens are why I go back.

Always have loved this course, but they doubled their prices!

I have been playing at Sugar Ridge when is wasn't so well-known. Its a shorter course, but has plenty of risk/reward challenges. Beautiful views. Well-kept. I probably won't be playing here as often as the price has sky-rocketed.
