2014 - Entire Year's Selected Photos

Photos on This Page Last Updated December 15, 2014

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.

Winter Golf in the Mid-South USA

December 14, 2014

Our course is in wonderful condition as Winter begins. The Bermuda fairways - and the Bermuda rough areas - are dormant and are magnificent to play off-of.

The Bent greens are wonderful to putt on and will be perfect until the Spring aearation comes about starting in February.

If you are not in North Carolina as you read this and you have a chance - "Come On Down"..... chancing it may be too cold to play some days! Sun and mid-40s are a perfect combination for my golf enjoyment.

Fall Golf in the Mid-South USA (Continued)...

November 30, 2014

What a beautiful day. An 18-hole golf/walk. I feel almost guilty. Only a couple of photos, below - none of which can fully convey how special golf is this time of year for me.

(Even More)Early-Fall Golf in the Mid-South USA (Continued)...

November 2, 2014

Although, now, it is REALLY Fall - no longer, "Early Fall" - We continue the "Winning Streak" of weather and course conditions. I assume that Fall maintenance is about to start (this coming week). We have had a perfect period of time/enjoyment. We were/are lucky.

Oaks 1st Tee - Fall Flowers for the Early Morning Tee Times

Oaks 1st Tee - for the Early Morning Tee Times
A "million" (well, at least ten...) beautiful Oak trees.
The Fall colors will just make this shot even more wonderful!
Assuming that the player carries over the rough to the fairway...
Oh, well - the rough will be dormant in seven weeks!!

Oaks 6th Shot-To-The Green Area
For most of us, the third shot area is from here-on in.
Big hitters who made it over the trees? Their second shot.
This photo shows the first hint of Fall colors 2014 on Oaks #6.

Oaks 10th Second Shot Area
The sun reflecting on the lens is unfortunate - but, the photo does show the shot (from about 170yds).
A terrific par-4; it has evolved wonderfully over the years.

Oaks 13th White Tee
I know that I show this photo a lot... Still searching for "THE" photo...
This one is not too bad, showing the first-touch of Fall colors 2014.

Oaks 14th Green Area - A Difficult Birdie hole - An Especially-Challenging One-Putt Green

Oaks 15th Tee
A difficult birdie (or, even two-putt par), if your tee shot is past the pin.

The Oaks 18 Forward Tee is a nice addition to that hole and has "aged" well this summer.

Yes I show Oaks 16 Tees a few times a year. Trying to get a better-photo each time that I photograph this fine par-4.

Some Views on The Lakes

Although I play The Lakes course less than I do The Oaks - I always enjoy these golf holes.
Well, perhaps I enjoy Lakes #5 more than I do Lakes #7...

12 hours earlier (9:00am), just off the Oaks 1st Fairway.
I know that you have seen this hawk -
I wish the light would have been better, or my camera and I were more talented!

Lakes On A Sunday - Some Photos


June 15, 2014
I never noticed, before, the "Power Lines" just behind the green.
I will have to check, the next time that I play The Lakes Course and see if it is a photographic anomaly!
I like this view, though.

Oaks and Lakes, Some Photos (Views) We Sometimes Don't See (Notice) Too Often


June 7, 2014
This may make it into the 2015 golf course - oriented calendar.
When my ball ends up on the mound that I am on as I take this photo, I wonder why it never rolls back to the green....
Poor me.... I just enjoy the view.

Lakes - I Enjoyed This Morning's Round

Selected Oaks' Holes on a Beautiful Sunday in Late May


May 25, 2014

Oaks Back Nine Par 3s

Although each are different - They both are similar in quality and, as handicapped, they ALWAYS are key holes in Net Match Play.

Oaks 4th

No traps on this hole. Green area is, still, nicely protected via mounds and through being an uphill approach.
The Forward tee is shown below.

Friday Evening - After the Round. Dinner on the Deck Overlooking Oaks #18

What a great evening view. The after-golf dinner was good, as well!

-----------------------------------------------------------------
You may have wondered where I was in April.

If you did NOT wonder, I understand!
However, I still give you a peak. Not bad, eh?

The Annual Count-Down to Green Grass at North Ridge Country Club

I updated this section of the photos once in awhile over the last two months. I tried to get updated photos from the "same" location once in awhile. I enjoy seeing the green grass come forward out of the now-dormant Bermuda grass that has served us well all winter! The dormant Bermuda grass is great to play off of - but, of course: We looked forward to green grass mid-May; and: It arrived on schedule!

Have a great start to Summer!
