As mentioned by others, Ridge Creek is a solid track and a top course in the area. Greens roll smooth and fast with enough action to make it a challange but not so much you pull your hair out Fairways are lush as noted before. There are no trees on the course so you dont get any shade and lining up your tee shot can be a bit misleading at times as the entire course is open.
The sand traps while consistent with what's in the area, are hard packed dirt for the most part. Also, the fairway bunkers are seriously deep so it's an automatic lay up coming out as you will need a wedge to get up and over the lip.
Course is definitely worth playing if you're anywhere within a couple hours drive. Restaurant is also top quality and a nice setting. Food is nothing spectacular but the ambiance is very nice and what you would expect from a quality course (not just a trailer)

Played 4-24-17 early morning on their pink Monday for $39 including cart. Was sent out as a single and had the course all to my self except for a few of the maintenance crew. Tee boxes were in real good shape, nice coverage and level. Fairways were very lush with some good roll out and nice lies. Rough was not much longer than the fairways and in good shape with some little tufts of grass. Bunkers were in good shape and well groomed. Greens were in really good shape, holding shots real nice and rolling medium/fast. Overall course is in really good shape and well worth playing.
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.
