Wet weather

Great practice for short game.

It's not long but the tee's and green's were in good shape. Big hitters can reach a few par four's in one. The par three's are longer. Not too much trouble out there. Fun track to play.

First Time Playing

Course was in excellent shape. Back nine was a little tougher than the front but overall a pleasurable experience.

Pace of play was terrible, but that is to he expected on a holiday weekend. Two groups ahead of us were incredibly slow while the group behind was impatient and hit into us multiple times. Normally I'd have let them play through but there was nowhere to go.

Good turf

Ridder is always in good shape.Even with all the rain we have had the turf was solid.The greens were very good and fast.The course is somewhat under-rated.It has a easy first 8,and a tough 10.

Too slow

Very nice condition. Short course. Good value for money. This would be a great course for beginners or to take ur kids. 4 me it was too slow waiting 5 mins to take every shot. laying up all the time. And this isnt the 1st time. Problem is sending groups out 8 mins apart and then no one to make sure they keep up.

Good Conditions, Easy Layout

This course is kept in good condition for a public course. The front 9 and back 9 are very different. Front 9 is short, wide open and easy. The back adds a lot more trees and some length to make for a harder layout.

Aesthetically Pleasing and Interesting Layout - Stay Away On weekends

Always enjoy this golf course for its design and very good condition and greens. Overpriced to walk and gets too much play on weekends and they do not have a policy of regulating the 1st tee properly so it gets very slow real quick in the round. When you have a very nice facility like this it behooves leadership (owners) to to manage the most elemental issue of public golf, that is, keep it moving..!! Will not be going back except maybe on a weekday.

great score when dry, it plays toughr in the back then the front but enjoy playing it , the greens have to be th best on the south shore, challenging breaking puts on most all. i do not play here much , i think its a bit over priced in season but the winter rate is best.

I would say a must play course.
