About The Ridgewood Country Club
The greens are modified, push-up greens that are primarily Poa annua. The fairways and tees are a mixture of Poa annua, perennial ryegrass and creeping bentgrass. We have a state-of-the-art Toro irrigation system and have recently restored the golf course based on a master plan completed by noted architect Gil Hanse.
