Latest Golf Hole Pictures

Photos on This Page Last Updated November 26, 2017

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.

Early-Winter View

The Bermuda grass is dormant, the Oak's Bentgrass greens are in wonderful shape --
all we can hope for is a normal-Winter-weather couple of months, here, in the mid-South USA!

Oaks 7th

I have not "featured" Oaks #7, often, with photos -- but, on this day during a morning golf/walk I caught a couple of photos "in the mist" and save them here.

Oaks 7th has always been a challenging-yet-satisfying tee shot. As the golf hole - and, its trees - has matured, the tee shot from any of the tees (back, middle and front) continues to be a wonderful risk-reward shot. The golf hole is understandably Hcp-3 on the Oaks. A well-designed-by Gene Hamm dogleg left that requires some real thought to play. I enjoy this golf hole!

Oaks 7th Tee
November 5, 2017
185 yard slight-draw, from this forward tee works well.

The tees to the back of this view play 20-to-40 yards longer. If the player can hit a SLIGHT draw, the tee shot from the back can be 250 yds or more, leading to a short second shot. Otherwise, just hit it 200-to-220 "straight" and you will have a fun 150-160 yds to the green for your second shot.

Before the Fall

A nice start to a Sunday - the first weekend in October - Before the Fall season is in "full swing".

Turn around and take a look with the morning sun at your back, before heading to the Oaks' 1st tee.

A Wonderful Third Shot-Area View/Golf-Shot

Ok -- The grass is in winter-time shape and currently trying to "Wake up" for peak "green-ness" end-April.

If you do not enjoy this golf shot and its challenge: I recommend you choose a different game.

A Three-tiered green, well protected - with a great view anytime of the day. A truly-fine Par-5.

Golf Course Renovation Photos 2017

2017 brings some golf course renovation activity, including "grassing"/re-seeding greens on the Lakes Course - and, upgrading the Practice Areas. This portion of this web page is, simply, a place for my saving this for "historical" reasons and may be of interest to those of you who may be travelling and not seeing some information passed onto members via posters and other-such techniques. If I spot something - or, take a photo "renovation"-related, I will use this part of the Website for saving such. Of course, the official paths of communication from the club are your best source of information; this, is just serving my purposes and provided here as general information. If you have any concerns as this information is eventually modified as 2017 moves along, don't hesitate to get in touch with me.

Practice Hitting Area was Closed - Heavy Equipment was plowing up the area. Putting green was open. I don't practice putting, much... it is a lost cause.

January 15, 2017

Trees and Bushes Cleared Out Behind Lakes' 18th Green.
I guess, to allow for improved air circulation for upcoming/new greens. I will try to remember to put a photo, here, of the "before" view. We see, if I remember to do so....
