I know I've made countless of Ridge Creek reviews, but haven't been out there in over a month. Distance Learning as a teacher and as a parent has been VERY tiring, but was able to get out Sunday, October 4th. After being away from my home away from home course, I have truly missed this course! With the heat we've been getting hit with over the past few weeks as well as the smoke, Ridge Creek is in PRIMO shape! Might be in the best shape I've seen it in.
Tee boxes were in very good shapes(we played Blacks) and there was plenty of coverage, with little to no divots on most. Par 3 holes, of course there will be divots, but nothing crazy.
Fairways were running! They were hard and fast which makes for a great round if you put the ball in the right spots out here. There were occasions where I was 20-30 yards past my buddies, and they aren't short hitters, but it was their first times out here. There were a couple times where the ball bounced off the fairway and bounced high, not sprinkler high, but the fairways were just that hard. Taking divots out of the fairways were deep but very good club/turf interaction.
Bunkers have been fixed from earlier, in the summer. A solid layer of bunker sand/dirt in them, luckily wasn't in any to have to worry too much.
The greens were soft, but quick. I don't know who sets the pins up but when we played on Sunday, they had some pins in some TOUGH places, on some subtle but tough areas. Which made putting a challenge, which made the round that much better!
All in all, the course from tee to green is in GREAT shape, and hopefully with the cooling down and settling into Distance Learning, I can get out here more. But Weekend Warrior status is tough.» Close
