2015 - Entire Year's Selected Photos

Photos on This Page Last Updated December 27, 2015

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 Nice December Morning To Close Out 2015

December 27, 2015

Global Warming..... Ok; We live with it

Have a good start to 2016!

Oaks 17th Green Approach Area
December 27, 2015
Even though we know we should "hit a club or two more" to reach this well-protected green.
We are still, often, short with our second shot. Live and learn? Someday.

Another December View of Closing Out A Round on the Oaks Course

December 20, 2015

What can I say... I realize that I show this view a lot -- but, I continue to look for "THE" photo. These three are quite nice. I am not certain which is better/truer-to-life; however, I could live with choosing any of these for the golf calendar 2016.

I will be deciding soon! If interested, stay tuned for the 2016 golf-oriented calendar that I put together.

A December View of a WONDERFUL Par-5 on the Oaks Course

December 13, 2015
Well, this may be the December photo for the upcoming year's golf calendar. I will decide in a couple of weeks.

Unfortunately, Global Warming is keeping the Bermuda fairways and rough less-dormant than it should be; so, I would guess that we will see more winter kill this coming January and February. Today it was mid-60s F. A wonderful morning on the Oaks -- and, the photo is December-ish even though the temp is not! Enjoy, for now.

December - More Early "Winter" Views of Oaks Course

December 6, 2015
Long shadows (09:45 when these photos were taken), nearly-blue skies, cool temps (low 40s F.). A golf/walk. Perfect.

November - Early "Winter" Views of Oaks Course 15th

November 29, 2015
Well, not really Winter - yet. In any case -
I wanted to catch views of how things have changed on Oaks 15th. A sign of the times: House teardowns and New House Replacement. Interesting, to see how things change.

More (Less-Often Photographed) Views of the Oaks Course

November 15, 2015
Well... You may be "tired" of seeing the Oaks Course;
however, I use this Web page as a holding-spot for selecting photos at the end of the year.
This day, I took some photos from spots that I often "just pass by" and don't photograph.
I always enjoy these spots, though -- and, the spots ARE worthy of a photo or two/three...!

A zoomed/cropped photo from the photo shown to your left.

Oaks 4th Green Area
No traps on Oaks #4 - anywhere, on this hole. A large, well mounded/protected green, though.
A fine par-4.

Oaks 18th Second Shot Area
After a nice drive on this terrific par-5, second-shot options are offered the player.
Normally, 180 yards straight ahead is a good choice!
Any other choice... You are on your own....

Another Beautiful Fall Morning - Oaks

November 13, 2015
Late Fall. The greens were / are perfect - and, the fairways/tees are wonderful as they head into dormancy.
Don't worry - Green Grass is back in full the week of May 15 -- and, in the meantime: Winter golf in North Carolina is special.

A Cloudy Morning - Oaks

November 1, 2015
The clouds did not get in the way of a nice 12-hole golf/walk - and, the rain held off until we were finished! Nice.

A Few Views of The Lakes Course

October 25, 2015
I play the Oaks most of the time - and, in the morning -
however, yesterday was an afternoon round on The Lakes and, even though a cloudy day: A nice day! on A nice course!
How fortunate, we are.

This shot, about 190 yards to clear the slight dogleg. Otherwise, don't go right....

Tree-Color Changing Time: Fall, 2015

Trying to Catch View of Silvery Trees
August 9, 2015

A photo does not do justice (especially taken into the sun...) to the morning view of Oaks 5th green area and the "silvery trees".
However, perhaps you get the idea from this. The next time you play Oaks 5 - take time to see the trees.

Teardown - Sign of the Time - 2015
August 9, 2015

When the teardowns / replacement homes started a few years ago, I wondered why it was happening. Once I thought about the wonderful lots around North Ridge Country Club, though - it made some kind of sense. Some of the homes built in the 1960s are being replaced with 2015's version. We see, soon, what the current house foundation brings forth.


Stay tuned for a view of the new house.
