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.

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.

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.
