Practice Facility

 

Be sure to visit our practice facility just before you play and consider allowing a little extra time to warm up before you take on our beautiful course.

 

Thanks to the exciting challenges put into place by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. – you will want your drives to be strong and accurate. You will be faced with several uphill fairways that will challenge you on the tee box. So be sure to start out at our driving range to practice those wedge shots and work your way up through the clubs in your bag for about 15 minutes.

 

We have 25 stations for golfers on our driving range that include target greens to improve your aim. Finish your range session by “playing” the first few holes by imagining the first fairway and hitting a drive; then pretend you’re hitting your approach shot to the first green, and so forth. You’ll want to work on chipping and your sand shots at our separate green set aside for short-game work.

 

We also have a putting surface where you can get the feel of our greens before your arrive at your very first hole.

 


Driving Range

 

The driving range at The Ridge is a great place to practice or warm up before your round. We offer 25 stations and 5 target greens from 75 to 275 yards. The range is open from sunrise to one hour before sunset. We offer hitting mats Monday through Wednesday and grass tees Thursday through Sunday, weather permitting. Additionally, we offer a sand bunker to practice your sand game and allow chipping on any of our practice greens.

 

Every Monday morning until 9:00am, our driving range is closed for weekly maintenance.

 

Range balls cost $5 for a half basket of 50 balls, $8 for a full basket of 100 balls and $11 for 150 balls. We also offer an annual range pass for unlimited use of the range for $499.99. A range pass is the ideal purchase for beginning golfers who want to practice regularly.

 


Putting Greens

 

The Ridge offers two practice putting greens that resemble the greens on the course to give you a great warm up session before you play. Their undulations and speed will give you a realistic feel of the greens to prepare you for a great game. Additionally, we allow chipping on our greens, please just repair any ball marks.

 

The greens possess a creeping bent grass surface – one of the best putting surfaces in the game of golf. They are smooth and true and will challenge any putting stroke.

 

Our putting greens are open daily from sunrise to sunset and there is no charge for using them.
