the ridge golf
Golf course in West Valley City
The Ridge Golf Club was originally known as West Ridge and it opened in May of 1991. Construction of the Mountain View Corridor, a UDOT project, required land which was home to 5 of their holes on the Back 9. After signing an agreement with the state, a new course was constructed.
The Gene Bates Design Group was brought in to design a new 18-hole course that would cater to players of all abilities. Gene Bates is a renowned architect and his portfolio includes Old mill, Riverbend, and Soldier Hollow in Midway which hosted the United States Golf Association’s Public Links Championship in July of 2012.
The Ridge Golf Club was designed with the intent to challenge and stimulate the low handicap golfer, but not at the expense of the other players whether they are nw golfers, seniors, women or juniors. The new design takes on a feel that resembles golf in Southern Utah or Mesquite, Nevada more than locally.
West Valley City intends to keep golf affordable so that golfers can expect competitive rates. In conjunction with their sister course, Stonebridge Golf Club, The Ridge will offer the$199.92 Player’s Pass which allows golfers to play 18-holes with a cart for only $16. The Player’s Pass is without rival when it comes to keeping golf affordable. Punch cards for frequent play or the driving range will be offered as well.
The Ridge Golf Club offers one of the best practice facilities in the Valley. The new putting green has been redesigned to resemble to greens on the course itself. There is a new large chipping green located between the putting green and practice tee. The chipping green is over 5,000 square feet and offers all types of lies and stances to practice on. The new driving range is now located to the Northeast of the clubhouse. The new teeing area offers an abundance of natural turf, as well as a synthetic tee line for Spring and Fall practice.
The new range building will offer the ability to purchase practice balls right at the driving range. In addition, the building provides restrooms, drinking fountains and a vending machine. There is also a private teeing area for golf instruction from one of their PGA Professionals.
