Beautiful October day

Ridgewood is a nice, picturesque course with beautiful mountains in the background. Always a pleasure to play the course.

Do it again!

OK so all the courses are aerating now , that aside Ridgewood is in great shape.

This is a great layout and the front always plays tougher than the back. Fairways and tee boxes all in good shape. Greens were probably punched a week or two ago.

Play this course and you will be glad you did.

It was ok

Not much of a design. I'm not sure who the architect was, but he's in the wrong business.

The 9th hole, is probably one of the worst holes I've ever played, It looks like they were desperate to find a way to get the Front 9 back to the Clubhouse and came up with a god awful routing of the 9th hole, to do it.

Other than the 9th, the layout was ok. A nice view from a couple of holes. The course has a serious drainage problem. It's barely rained here in a month, yet the course was saturated, most everywhere.

The greens were probably running about 8, but they were fairly tricky, as the course is mostly surrounded by mountains.

Condition in general, was about what you'd expect at a lower-end public course. Given they're really the only course in the area, they can get away with skimping on maintenance and people will still play it.

We are better golfers this year but it's still a tough course for our skill level

This is a great course,, but the wetlands hazards make it not for the faint of heart. We played here a few times last summer. We forgot how the water hazards suck up golf balls. We'll be back after I buy a bucket of golf balls.

Still challenging, but fun

Now that the two of us have played more this summer, Ridgewood is not so frustrating. We continue to play from the gold tees and can now complete most of the holes without losing a ball or taking seven or more strokes. Course was in great shape and we were practically alone this day. Sad to see the season ending.

Fair condition course

Fairways and greens were not as good as they have been compared to last year it was kind of busy but we moved along OK in the beginning then slow down on the back nine it was a good value for the money

Beautiful course, but tough

Lots of wetland hazards make this a difficult course for a golfer of my experience, but they also make the course a very nice place to play golf. Lots of lost balls. We'll be back every so often, even though it's about an hour and a half from home.

Needed the rain

So we played Ridgewood three days this week. Monday, the dry conditions and freshly dressed greens were barely playable. The gully washer storm on Tuesday was just what was needed. Even the fairways showed some grain, traps were raked, putts rolled smoothly most of the time. Ample portapotties and cold water stations. Theres a putting green, range and pitching area, including a trap for warmups. Proshop is ok but no used balls for sale, plenty to be found in all the hazards. Not a beginners course and bring your “A”game for either the blue or black tees which typically included an additional carry; and wait to play the day after a good rainstorm.
