Course Overview

Orchard Ridge is a beautiful, mature golf course built in 1924 which places a premium on shot-making. Tree-lined fairways, strategic bunkering, and four lakes must all be accounted for while avoiding rough and natural areas. The gently rolling terrain makes accuracy a premium over distance.

The relatively small and fast greens require precise shots to score well, although the course is not so difficult as to punish players of lesser skill levels or anyone hitting an errant shot. You could play an enjoyable, challenging layout every day and not tire of it.

We have meticulously maintained greens and beautiful fairways, a complete practice facility with target greens and a chipping/bunker area, adult and youth instruction programs for any skill level, an active schedule of member events and tournaments, and a full-service Golf Shop with a wide range of equipment and apparel Professional club-fitting.

Hole One | Par 4

The key at Hole 1 is to place the ball at the fairway off the tee. Most players will elect to hit the driver, although some of our longer hitters will choose less than the driver. The second shot plays uphill to a large green where members must be sure to note the pin location to give them the best chance at scoring a par.
