1st HolePar 4
The opening hole at Ridgeway Country Club is a straight away par four. Aim your tee shot down the right-hand side of the fairway for an ideal angle into the left-to-right sloped green. From this spot, the second shot is also crucial as any ball hit short will be thrown back by the false front making for a frustrating start to your round. A miss short left of the green will be swallowed up by the lone sand bunker. Hitting the green in regulation should ensure par and a great start to your round.
2nd HolePar 5
This short par five presents the first risk-reward tee shot on the course. A drive down the right side of this right-to-left sloped fairway will leave the player with a direct line to the green in hopes of reaching in two. An accurate approach is key, as three bunkers surround this back-to-front sloped green complex. Again, your approach shot is crucial as the narrow opening to this green is made difficult by another false front.
3rd HolePar 4
The third is the longest par four on the course. A drive in the fairway is important here as the uphill second shot is one of the most demanding approach shots at Ridgeway Country Club. A bunker on the left is the green’s only visible defense, but beware the crowned green that will send slightly errant shots wayward.
4th HolePar 5
The fourth is a straight away par five that is only reachable in two for the longer hitters. The blind second shot should be played straight up the hill to ensure a short iron or wedge into the left to right sloped green protected by deep bunkers on either side.
5th HolePar 3
This beautiful, downhill, long par 3 plays to a flat putting surface with bunkers on either side. The visually intimidating water on the right-hand side should not come into play with a well-struck shot. The hole often plays shorter than the number as the fairway and green slope away toward the farm field.
6th HolePar 4
This uphill par four plays easiest with a drive up the left-hand side of the fairway. The second shot plays blind to a green protected by a bunker short right and collection areas behind and right of the putting surface.
7th HolePar 4
The seventh is a medium length par four that sports a left-to-right sloped fairway. The ideal tee shot will be on the right-hand side of the fairway ensuring the optimal angle into the green. A second shot hit to the front of the green will slide off the false front, so hitting the middle of this back-to-front sloped green is ideal.
8th HolePar 3
The second par three on the course features a downhill shot to a left-to-right sloped green. A shot hit right of center will usually end up in the runoff area and sets up a tricky up-and-down, so hitting the green on the left-hand side is key… but beware that a tee shot into the bunker leaves an extremely difficult sand shot that runs away from you.
9th HolePar 4
The finishing hole of the outward nine is a slightly uphill dogleg-left par four. As one of the longest par fours on the course, driving distance is just as important as accuracy. A tee shot past the corner ensures a view of the skinny, back-to-front sloped putting surface that is guarded by large sand traps on either side.
10th HolePar 3
The back nine begins with a medium-long par three with one of the more intriguing greens on the course. This two-tiered green is sloped right-to-left and has a knob on the upper left shelf. If the pin is cut on the upper tier, there is a premium on hitting the green in regulation as there are steep drop offs behind and to the right of the green. The lone bunker short and left protects the lower tier of the putting surface.
11th HolePar 5
This 515 yard hole is a par 5 that dog-legs right with two bunkers in front of the green.
12th HolePar 4
This 395 yard hole is a par 4 with a bunker on the right side of the fairway and two other bunkers on the back and right sides of the green.
13th HolePar 3
This 175 yard hole is a par 3 with water in between you and the green. The green is also surrounded by bunkers!
14th HolePar 4
This 365 yard hole is a par 4 with a bunker on the right side of the fairway with three other bunkers surrounding the back, left and right sides of the green.
15th HolePar 5
This long 570 yard hole is a par 5 with four bunkers on all sides of the green.
16th HolePar 4
This 405 yard hole is a par 4 with a single bunker on the left side of the green.
17th HolePar 3
This short 140 yard hole is a par 3 with a single bunker on the right side of the green.
18th HolePar 5
This 505 yard hole is a par 5 with a bunker on the right side of the green.
