Our newest nine, The Ridge was designed by renown golf architect Rick Robbins and built in 2004. The Ridge presents a challenge with its drastic elevation changes and frequently steep terrain. The Ridge is a beautiful example of modern course architecture, with fescue featured more heavily than trees, collection agencies and false fronts. The Ridge is the longest of our three nines. The Ridge comprises the second nine holes of the Iowa Golf Association's 2013 18-Hole Course of the Year, with The Vale making up the first half.
