This course is a hidden gem in the Ozarks, often overlooked. After playing the Ridge, I probably won't be back to the Cove which I've played 3 times. The Ridge is FAR better for way less. I was pleasantly surprised with how perfect each tee box, fairway, and green were, especially after last year with the green situation. I will be back a bunch.
Avoid this course
Course conditions were very bad. Greens were the worst I have played this year with many bare spots. There was no one on the course, so therefore the pace was excellent. It was the only thing I could recommend about the place. I will not play this course again.
This probably was the worst golfing experience I have endured. Had I known the condition of the greenIs I would have not bothered to play. The staff did not honor our Golf Now tee time because we arrived 2 hours earlier than our booked time, even though there was nobody, I mean nobody on the course. Total failure and definitely avoid!
The course was in great shape despite a few rough spots on the greens. The staff was fantastic. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone.
Will play again
I got off early with no warmup but no one in front. Pace of play no issue. Greens were great like the layout. Fairways a bit rough from wet weather Cart paths rough
the house was laid out wonderful. greens were smooth . unfortunately this time of year it ws quite swampy. cart path only on 7 holes. other than that I loved it..
Fun course however extreme wet weather conditions made for a tough play. Soggy, soggy fairways and cart path only made it hard for us older fellas. Played it last year, wonderful!!!
Thank you for the 4-star review! We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your round at The Ridge even with all the rain we've recently had. We look forward to seeing you again!
Challenging Course...Marvelous Staff
This is a hilly, challenging layout which at time or another during your round, require every club in your bag. Tees and fairways are in excellent shape. Rough is thick...you’ll need a rescue or iron. Plenty of water...plenty or sand. Some traps are not maintained well(weeds growing in them). Greens are in good shape...this was mid-August and there were very few burnt out areas.
This is a good test of golf!
Thank you for the 4 star-review and the kind words about the staff and the course! There's no doubt the elevation changes will challenge your game. We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed your round and look forward to seeing you again.
Play This Course
Like any lake course, your tee shot is critical. If you are playing the course for the first time, ask the staff about a couple of shots that might be "blind" and they will give you the "heads up". Love the elevations of lake courses so you have to think about your club selection. Certainly not your local "muni" course so bring your game and your thinking hat, but that's what makes this course fun. This is a course I love to play, especially if I am struggling a bit. If you play well, the course is beatable. Good luck
Please help these Greens
This is one of my favorite tracks at the lake. But this time the greens were shot. They informed us that the greens had recently been punched but I can live with that. They were loosing many of the greens. You could see where that were trying to sod a couple of them but they needed to start from scratch at least 5 of them. A shame because this is a terrific place to play.
Lots of elevated tees
Nice course; prototypical "Lake of the Ozarks" course, with lots of elevation changes, holes incorporating water, etc. Rewards straight drives. The fairways are receptive, zoysia grass, so plenty of roll. A few holes are particularly challenging, with uphill approaches to the green. Difficulty is in choosing courses at the Lake, with Robert Trent Jones, NIcklaus, Palmer and Weiskopf courses nearby. The Ridge is of virtually the same caliber; a 15% decrease in greens fees would make it a good value.
