2012 - Entire Year's Selected Photos

Photos on This Page Last Updated December 2, 2012

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. However, I am in the midst of trying to come up with an approach to do that with my limited camera and captured-video editing experience.

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).

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

Two From The Lakes - November, 2012


November 4, 2012

My wife and I do not play the Lakes as often as we do the Oaks.
However, views such as this on Lakes 13th may lead to a change in our attitude.... but... I love the Oaks.... Quite a problem, eh?
I wonder how many of you remember the tree in the fairway at the bottom of the hill by the lake? It was, actually, a good aiming spot!
I am sure a few of you remember the birdhouse on the right side of where this photo was taken;
"Past the birdhouse" in the old days - "Go For it" with this shot.

A Morning on the Oaks - October, 2012

Oaks 7th Green - Morning View

Oaks 10th Fairway Looking Back to the 9th Green and 9thHole

This hole is a tough birdie. A well-protected green and a difficult 1-putt green.

Three of the Oaks' Competitors On This Day

September 11, 2012

The golf and the fellowship on the Oaks: Nice. The afterwards' lunch? Not my favorite.
I hope the SGA Championship lunch is more "my taste". We see.... Perhaps, Ice Cream at least?

Before the Play:


Oaks 18th Green Is Ready - In The Morning Dew!
A front pin. Fun! Yes, I later-on missed the 3-foot putt... It was slightly downhill....

During the Play:

Oaks 9th Second Shot

Oaks 12th Approach Shot

Oaks 14th Approach Shot

Oaks 18th Forward Tee

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Oaks' Fellow Competitors
Old Friends and Memories Galore

August 25, 2012

We had a wonderful day on the Oaks.

During the Play:

Oaks 4th Approach Shot
Zero traps on this hole. Are there any other holes at North Ridge that have zero traps? I don't think so....

Oaks 17th Second Shot
This is a HARD 18-hcp golf hole. The second shot is always a challenge.
Yes, I put my second shot into the greenside bunker today.
Again... a missed opportunity.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Oaks' Par-5's Approach Shots

August 15, 2012

Some of the joy of playing the Oaks is found in the approach shots on the par 5s. Today, I tried to catch such in photos -- someday I try to improve the quality of the photos. A new challenge! Perhaps, down the road, I try to put together groups of holes/shots. Any good ideas that you have? If so - give me a shout.

Oaks No. 5 Par-5 Approach Shot

Oaks No. 6 Par-5 Approach Shot

Oaks No. 11 Par-5 Approach Shot

Spring - Early Summer Arrived

April 1, 2012

Only once or twice in one's lifetime will the grass and golf-course be in this green/beautiful condition April 1.
Normally, it is May 1st or, more probably May 15.
For now... We Enjoy - As we will (probably) "pay" for this early-Summer in June/July and August.
Grass is nearly perfect, hardwood trees are getting full - about one month early this year.
What a wonderful place.
