Mountain Ridge

Donald Ross, 1929

Aptly named, the two nines start and return to the imposing Clifford Wendehack clubhouse located majestically high along a ridge line. Much of the golf is played down below and after two plus decades, Ron Prichard’s meticulous restoration has fully exposed both Ross’s talents as well as the expansive nature of the property. The 8th, 11th and 18th greens are all works of art. Add in a talented greenkeeper with a keen appreciation for architecture and this Golden Age course epitomizes a Ross design that plays better today than it ever has. (Photo: Evan Schiller)
