River Ridge worth a return trip

Posted May 6, 2013

 

Course: River Ridge in Raleigh

Play: Back at River Ridge for the first time in a while.

There are some short par 4s that you can reach in two, but the hole placement will make you think twice. There are some very pretty par 3s with undulating greens to keep you honest.

Overall, the greens were in superb condition. No. 10 is narrow, and sits next to the driving range. It can be very difficult to find your golf ball if you miss the fairway to the right, because at first glance, they all look the same. It’s a great hole for a yellow golf ball.

Worth Noting: This is a public course with a lot of character. I was reminded why I like it so much. And $45 after 2 p.m. is not bad.

    Gerald, Played all the courses youlisted except Mid South. Nice mechanism and insight to share with avid golfers looking variety. I extend and invitation to go and play Walnut Creek CC in Goldsboro when we can sort the schedules. It's private and worth the little over 1 hr. drive from Raleigh. Played there last week and outstanding. The staff there are so friendly. My freinds were raving about the condition. I know the greens keeper who is top notch Like OC you may get the feeling its your own private outing. Best on your next adventure. RCYa

    Gerald. I have enjoyed your writings about the various courses. I have learned some things, and hope to play a few of these in the future. I'm playing mostly in the Moore County area.

    My favorite non-private course in the area. Well worth the drive.
