2013 - Entire Year's Selected Photos

Photos on This Page Last Updated November 11, 2013

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.

A November Morning on the Oaks - November 3, 2013

A great day - although, for our twosome: The golf course won today scoring-wise.
We did not mind that; we enjoyed the Fall walk!

Weekend Before Trees Change Colors on the Lakes - October 27, 2013

Lakes #10 - Green Area Tee
This will be the October Calendar Photo for 2014.
It was a wonderful day. Even though, as it was a tournament, we rode carts... We still enjoyed the day.
Stay tuned, over the next two weekends, for the same photo-location while the tree colors change!
Depending upon the rain/wind over the next two weekends..... It may be a special Fall.

Oaks 16

I tried to put together a "collage" of Oaks 16. The sun was perfectly placed for photos as we played this, today. I am not sure the collage-approach works -- but, the individual photos are OK.

Some Lakes' Views

My stepdaughter has a nicer camera than I have - and, she has certainly a different "view of things" (as a non-golfer) compared to my normal, boring photos. She was in town recently and I asked her to take some photos on the Lakes Course. A couple of the shots I specifically asked for - but, generally she did her own thing. Thank you, Nicole!

Lakes 13 Walk to 3rd Green Area Looking to the 13th Green and 14th Tee Areas

Lakes 13th Green Area
One of my favorite spots on the Lakes Course.
When you are on the exact opposite location from this (you will be on the 16th tee) -
take a look across to here. We did not do so on this day -
but, I will get a photo of such the next time I am on the Lakes 16th tee; it is terrific - depending upon the sun...

Mid-Summer Dream

Oaks 4th Forward Tee - Part of a 9-Hole Golf/Walk Today
July 7, 2013
Although not an easy hole to photograph, a fine golf hole to play.

If you played Oaks 4th today: The pin (front-right, on a "mound" of the green) - Was in a pin position you don't see very often (thankfully!). Fun. I did not take a picture of the pin placement. Someday, I will - if the pin is ever there again! Let me know if you one-or-two putted Oaks 4th, today: Send mail to: My wife had a zero-putt and that was fun to see (especially with the pin placement). Our mythical opponent was not pleased.

I Played Three days In A Row - I Made Zero Putts

Weekend of June 15th, 2013
Great Weather and Great Golf Courses - And Great Partners! It was worth all the missed iron-shots and missed putts.

Looking Back From Oaks 9th Green Area
June 15, 2013
I wonder how many times I will take a photo from this spot until I get a "Great Shot"!

Oaks 3rd
I have a difficult time catching a photo of Oaks #3 that works. Someday....
However, this not toooo bad.

Oaks 4th White Tee

Oaks 4th Green Area - Looking Back
The only hole on the Oaks without a bunker. The view, looking back, sometimes is special!

Oaks 5th Second Shot Area

Oaks 9th Second Shot Area

Oaks 9th Green Area - Looking Back

Oaks 10th Second Shot
This hole has evolved over the years to be a wonderful golf hole.

Oaks 11th Blue Tee
If you dislike this golf hole - I recommend that you do not play North Ridge.
It is one of the four near-perfect holes at North Ridge.

Oaks 11th Third Shot After Layup - 175 Yds to Green
Some VERY long hitters will have this as their second shot.

Oaks 12th Green Area
Some of us have this approach shot. Others, enjoy the view as they walk by.
We all hope the pin is not back-left. If it is: 3-putt is probable.

Oaks 13th Middle Tee
Yes, I take this photo a lot. Someday, I will get a "Perfect Shot".
They aerated the tees, fairways and greens this week (June 17-20). OK.
I just "take advantage" of such and play "Winter Rules" and "Two Putts" and out - for a week or so. Fun.

Oaks 14th Green Area
The Approach

There is room to the right of this green. If you have not had this shot sometime - you, eventually, will.

Oaks 16th Second Shot Area - 170 yds to the Green
Assuming that you are not in the bunker - just take one more club than you normally think that you should for 170 yds.

Oaks 18th Green Area

Lakes #3

Welcome, From the Bag-Drop Area
Hold on for another two weeks.... This area will be beautifully in-bloom soon!

Construction in February - What do YOU Think of the New Traps on 8-Oaks?

February 3, 2013

It should make the "hill shot" a little easier (to the green), I guess.
And the new traps are quite photogenic!

January Continues - With Great Wintertime Golf

January 20, 2013

Of course.... With typically the coldest two weeks of the year coming up - who knows what will come about.
We enjoyed these days, though! Thank you.

From the forward tees, this Par-4 could be a terrific Par-3....

Well.... As a Second Shot - Not a bad hole, eh?

The next day (on a Monday) I walked a few holes on The Lakes Course.
Perhaps one of these photos will be the January photo in the 2014 calendar.
I just have to remember and take the time to get the same locations in photos this summer. I think I will remember to do so!

Lakes 13th

Lakes 14th

Lakes 12th - A GREAT Par-4. If you are not a right-to-left player...

Signs of Winter in North Carolina

January 6, 2013

What a great way to start 2013. A golf/walk on the Oaks course.

Not a bad way way to end the start to 2013!

I love the new Forward Tee area on Oaks 18.
