Played 9-20-16 with 3-4bravo in a little over 3 hours as a twosome with no waiting. Overall course is in real good shape. Tee boxes were level and lush. Fairways were in nice shape, a little tight with a lot of roll out. First cut of rough was in good shape not to long and easy to hit from, outside that your'e lucky to find your ball. Bunkers had nice brown sand in them and were nice to hit from. Greens were in great shape rolling medium/fast and very soft. Thanks to Ridge Creek for having us out, cant wait to get back here.

Played yesterday in a GK outing with rgm2525. Teed off a little before 9:20 and got done around 12:30. There was only a two some ahead of us and a single behind us and the rest of the course was wide open. We could have been done earlier had it not been for me spraying nearly every drive into the native areas surrounding each hole. Ridge Creek can be a difficult golf course, but it is ten times more difficult when you're searching for a ball in thick grass and bushes. Fairways were hard, leaving you with tight lies on nearly ever hole. Greens were soft with plenty of hold to them, even spun a few shots off the green. Sand was in good shape as well. The course was a great time, and I had a great time getting to know Ron as well. Definitely will have to get back out to Ridge Creek to see if I can get back some of the lunch money it took from me yesterday.
Just wanted to post some specials on behalf of a big supporter of Greenskeeper.org - Ridge Creek Dinuba Golf Club.
We had an outing up there in March, the course is awesome - read the reviews.

Just got off the phone with the one of the Golf Pros there at Dinuba. There is a Yardage Book for sale in the Pro Shop to get the lay of the land. I cannot stress how important a book like this for a course you are unfamiliar. It would be a Great investment!

If you can bang it out there at least 230 on the fly, don't layup from the tee. Knock it over the bunker on the right. The hole sets up to be much more receptive to approach shots coming in from the right side and even if you spray it right, there is plenty of open space although you might have some difficult rough to contend with.
Aim just left of bunkers on right. Second shot to trap on right will give you around 100 in. There is a waste area on the left. Kiss your ball good bye if you find yourself in that junk. I did and I was lucky if you want to call it that. The heather will, if you're lucky, only cost you a stroke.
