Latest Golf Hole Pictures

Photos on This Page Last Updated September 8, 2020

Note: Of course, all of the information on this Web page/Web site is/are-affected-by Covid-19. Certainly, all of us are aware of such and golf/etc. schedules/events things are in the "Who Knows" and "Not Important" category. We all try to be sensible. Knowing that is true, however, I "update" information here once in awhile. Be Safe.
Regards, Dave Shogren - "Webmaster" of this site.

This Web page contains golf hole pics of North Ridge CC that have been "recently" added to our Website. I put recently in quotes, as I am not sure how often the page will be updated. It depends upon weather/camera-availability when I am on the golf course and other factors.

It is intended that the next phase of North Ridge photos will be movies of each golf hole. When will that be completed? I have no idea. None of this is officially part of North Ridge and its projects; I am simply an interested member of North Ridge Country Club who enjoys this topic.

Some of the pictures included in this page are also on the primary pictures-of-golf-holes at North Ridge Web page pointed to my this site's navigation page (see the above "About Us, Newsletters, Discussion, Golf Course Pictures' button).

The photos/site are purely taken as part of my interest and are shared for others who have a common interest in this matter. Period.

If you have pictures of North Ridge CC that you feel would contribute to this site: Thank you, in advance, for contacting me.

Regards,

We are "back in action" golf/walk-wise now that May/later has come about. Not many Picture-Taking golf/walks were taken in January/February/March 2020. Plus, of course, Covid-19 affects us directly and I do not mean to ignore such. Given that, though, if we do have a golf/walk and photo-taking takes place: I will save/update-here photos as time allows. By the way, I am using the term: "New Reality" via the abbreviation "NR" to as I reference the current time/"reality".
Be Safe. Regards, Dave Shogren

On the Way to Oaks 18th Tee - The "Foxes' Den" Tree

As I was browsing the Web today, I saw a few trees mentioned as finalists in a Web page's (happened to be in Scotland) "Tree of the Year" competition.

I think a good idea - so, I will have such a "contest" for golf holes that I play during the remainder of 2020. Let me know if you have a "favorite tree" on the NRCC Golf Courses. Just eMail me (or, of course, mention something if we "meet" on the course/whatever):

After another two weeks of no-golf/walk time; we "got lucky" with the weather-temp: Started out the 9-holes in the high 60s F. and ended play at low 70s F. With, even, some Scottish Mist the last two holes. Nice. Memories abound on such a day.

Another Starting/ending-of-the-Round Set of Photos

Ok... I have shown these two views before on a previous day's golf/walk; Today's was just as good view-wise - and, he golf was OK as well.. I am (kind of) figuring out how to play Oaks 18 and just accept that it is now a four-shot hole (to the green) for me. Oh, well.... The golf/walk is ALWAYS good.

An Approach At Movies

Note: I have not had time in a LONG while to update the Movie part of this Web page. If you DO look at the following movies and are interested in such, let me know - and I will attack the updating process. I used the approach shown, below, as a learning-exercise for my benefit and have moved on to movies sufficiently that I could improve the following if I believed it to be necessary. Thank you for your patience. I will, of course, e updating the golf photos (below) on a regular basis.

If you have time to test something: I am heading down a path of "movies" of the golf course. I am a novice at doing this - but, I am making progress in learning the fundamentals of handling my small digital camera and the PC/Web-related matters that are necessary to view the movie.

Note: If nothing shows up - OK - just kill your Web browser session and, if you have to send me a message saying you had no luck: Thank you, for letting me know that.

If totally not interested in testing this - just scroll past the following section or use your Browser's Back button or -- Exit your Web Browser as you normally do.
