Latest Golf Hole Pictures

Photos on This Page Last Updated November 21, 2021

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.

August - Some of the Oaks

Enough rain/etc. this Summer to keep things green. No "severe storms" - yet.

Clubhouse - Another Morning View

I know I have shown this view many times... However, I keep trying to capture "The View". Someday, that will happen.

Oaks 18th Approach Shot Hidden Bunker

I had not taken the time to measure where this bunkers is.
It is 50 yds in front of the "corner" bunkers and 40 yds from the green.
I wonder what ran through the golf course "renovation" team when they decided this bunker was a good idea....

Once Again: Some of Oaks Inside-9

We play these holes regularly as we enjoy our two-hour, 9-hole morning golf/walks. We are fortunate!

Oaks 14th

The most-noticeable (for we photo-takers... and, for many players) changed-area/golf-holes resulting from the 2019 Oaks Course renovation. A "million" trees were removed and the Oaks 14th tee moved a bit left to "straighten" the hole driving-wise. I finally had a chance to get a few photos of such and the photos are included below. I have not (yet) placed them in the Oaks 14th "Golf Course pictures of NRCC" (which is pointed to off of this Web site's Navigation at the top of this Webpage). I will update Oaks 14th on that part of this Website - someday.

From the Regular Tee (this photo's view) it is about 230 yds to have a second shot with a clear view of the 14th green. 190 or so for the Forward Tee players.

An Oaks Course Front Tee

I "moved up" golf-playing-wise to the front tees as this Summer gets underway. So far, I have enjoyed such and playing tee shots from the same tee as my wife does play from means the golf/walk is even more of a sharing-time-together 2-hrs (we normally play nine holes). Playing from the front tee will enable me to get more photos from the Front Tee(s) of our two courses. Good!.... I have tended to skip photo-taking from those tees more than I should have in the past. In any case - below is the Front Tee view from Oaks #5, par-5 dogleg left. Yes, I can hit a driver from this tee, still: The far traps are just under 200 yds and without fairway-roll I stay short of those traps. I do not attempt/waste time/energy trying to hit over the left-shown traps... those are not "fun" places for me to play from.

Starting and Ending on the Oaks Course

Ok... I know the photos are somewhat repetitive -- and, I am sure -- boring in many ways to a lot of people; however I still enjoy trying for "The" photo of spots/area I have an opportunity for a golf/walk. So.... Here are a few photos of this past week's Oaks Course Inside nine starting/ending golf-hole/surrounding-area photos. Still searching for "The" photo or two!

Oaks 18th Hole Green Area - A Common Chip-4th Shot I am often face with...
This view and the Green have changed quite a bit as a result of the 2019 Oaks Renovation.
The many "fun" pin placements make this a challenge even after one reaches this green.

Oaks Course - 2021 - Still Evolving

As 2021 got underway we continue to see how the Oaks Course changes over time - and: After the 2019 Renovation. Although my Sunday morning golf/walks are normally just the "Inside Nine" of the Oaks: I enjoy "it" each time we have/take the opportunity to do so.

After a 3-Month Break

Well... Three months passed by and ZERO golf/walks on Sunday mornings during that stretch. Weather just did not cooperate on Sunday mornings. The sleep-ins were wonderful -- but, it was great to get started today. Just one photo:

Don't worry, Green Grass will be here by end-April and it will be fully ready for the Summer by May 15.

Awhile Ago

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.
