Latest Golf Hole Pictures

Photos on This Page Last Updated December 1, 2016

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.

Regards,
Dave Shogren, eMail: Webmaster@NRCCSeniorMensGolf.org

Oaks 1st Tee in the Morning
November 27, 2016


What a beautiful Fall season we had in 2016. Sometimes, I even "made the green" with the following challenges.
Normally, though, I had an opportunity of One More Shot!
Oh, well... I still enjoyed every day's game/walk.

Some October Colors on the Oaks Course

October 30, 2016

I will try to take photos from these-taken "same" areas next Sunday. We see what this 2016 1st week of November does Color-Wise! We have not had a lot of color yet, this year, in the Raleigh NC area -- but, the color IS starting, as shown below.

Morning mist. We look forward to being back to this green, later, as we complete our 12-hole golf/walk on the Oaks.
Yes, we often play 12 holes on Sunday Mornings! Wonderful.

A morning on the Lakes Course

and a Weekend Morning View of Oaks #1 Tee Area July 28-31, 2016

I planned for only 12 holes in this morning's golf/walk - and, that was perfect for this hot/mid-Summer day in Raleigh.

(Click on the following to see in a larger-sized image).

A "look back" is not a bad thing to do!

Lakes 12th - A "Near Perfect"-ly Designed Golf Hole
July 28, 2016

Gene Hamm designed a wonderful driving hole(if you are not "only" a right-to-left driver of the golf ball). Everything is "right in front" of the player.

The green is layed out perfectly. The player must hit a precise shot to this well-protected green.
Similar to other fine Gene Hamm-designed golf holes at NRCC including, especially: This hole, Lakes 4th and Oaks 11th.

Two on the Lakes

July 24, 2016

As I have said before, I play The Lakes less than I play The Oaks (the Oaks being a slightly easier walk). However, whenever I play The Lakes I hope the sun is such that I get a good photo of certain holes. These two are not TOO bad.

The Oaks Course 18th Hole Forward Tee - And: The House at the Corner

July 10, 2016

I happened to notice that the steeples on the "house at the corner" are still visible in July, 2016.
Perhaps the last Summer of that happening?

Back From Vacation - Evening Views From North Ridge CC Terrace

May 14, 2016

After nearly a month away, playing golf in and enjoying: St. Andrews, Scotland (we had a perfect trip) - It was a pleasure to be "home". An evening dining-on-the-terrace led to enjoyable Sunday morning golf/walks on the Oaks Course! We are very fortunate.

Here We Go Again.... Another Season

February 21 - May 15, 2016

February 28, 2016

April 3, 2016
Well - The Bermuda grass is already waking up and will be fully-green mid-May... if, not slightly earlier.
Before that, the fruit trees -- Are even "past" -- and the Dogwoods have arrived on time (the week of April 6).
The maintenance staff is "doing its thing" - yet, the course is terrific to play on.
A great time of year.

I told you that the Green Grass would be ready by May 15! Perfect.
Now, we see if the Bermuda Grass Fairways and Bent Grass Greens can survive the "dry"/hot season that is starting now.
Stay tuned for September photos!

A Par-3 on a Sunday in the Mid-South

January 31, 2016

A beautiful hole -- even though: Yes! The Bermuda grass finally is dormant. Six to eight weeks late....
However, I am glad that it does get SOME rest.
Now: We look forward to Spring 2016 - eight weeks away from now.

The Fairway Grass is Supposed to be Dormant!

January 3, 2016

I guess that we will "pay" for the fairway Bermuda grass not going dormant as it should.

Well.... there are bigger problems than this, in the world.
We are VERY fortunate.
Have a GREAT 2016.

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.
