Elevation changes!!

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!!!

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!

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.
