The bridge at Auburn-Knightdale Road that is located just north of River Ridge Golf Club is currently under construction. As a result, Auburn-Knightdale Road is closed.
Experience the scenic and challenging River Ridge golf course. Members may choose to play a quick nine or tee up with a group for a stimulating 18 holes.
A good starting hole, from the blue tees the hole plays 362 yards. The green slopes back to front, downhill and slight dogleg to the right. Out of bounds does come into play down the right side. The green side traps catch all miss-hit shots.
This is a medium-length par 3. The green slopes left and to the front. On your tee shot, there are wetlands to be avoided on the left. The green side bunker on the left will catch stray shots.
Playing 410 yards from the blue tees, this is the number one handicap hole at River Ridge. A good tee shot will leave you with a mid to long iron to this elevated green. Avoid the green side bunker by taking enough club.
This is the first par 5 here at River Ridge, and it’s a good one. With a distance of 255 yards to the pond, long hitters will choose a 3 wood or a driver for their first shot. The second shot is a placement shot. You must avoid the pond and trees on the right. The green measures 106 feet in length. Knowing the pin placement will give you a better chance for birdie or par.
Our signature hole here at River Ridge measures 288 yards from the gold tees. Keep your long iron or fairway wood down the right side of the fairway. This will provide you with a short-iron approach into the green.
This par 5 is only 485 yards from the blue tees but very challenging. Long hitters will use a fairway wood for their first shot and must place their second shot between the pond and tree line on the right. There is a large green side bunker on the left. The green measures 100 feet from front to back.
A slightly uphill and dogleg right offers a challenging tee shot. Avoid the fairway trap down the right side, and you’ll have a short-iron approach into this undulating green.
This is a short par 4—only 362 yards in length. A large bunker on the left will challenge long hitters; a 3 wood is a good choice here. The small pot bunker at the front center makes this short-iron approach much tougher.
This is a great hole to finish the front side. When the pin is behind the large bunker on the right, the smart play is to aim for the center of the green and take your par.
The fairway slopes from right to left on this 414-yard par 4. Avoid trouble on the left by aiming your drive down the right side of this fairway. The hazard down the left comes into play for the long hitter.
Long hitters have tried to drive this green, but it’s difficult to pull off on this challenging par 4. The smart play is a fairway wood or long iron down the right side to avoid side hill lies and trouble at left. A second shot with a short iron must find the green. Avoid the deep bunkers that guard the front of this green.
This straightaway short par 4 can reach up and grab you. Out of bounds on the left and right and a large fairway bunker at left catches stray tee shots. A good tee shot leaves a short-iron approach. The green offers some interesting pin placements.
Place your tee shot between the large boulders. Although this is a dogleg left, avoid trying to cut the corner; trouble lurks left off the tee. Several large bunkers guard this green. The double-tier green offers a variety of tough pin placements.
A driver or fairway wood is the choice off the tee. The second shot is downhill to a green that is well protected by three bunkers. When the pin is on the right side of this green, the play is to the center of the green.
This is a great par 3 that plays a little longer than the yardage indicates. The uphill view is visually intimidating with a large natural area and three bunkers short of the green. The green is quite undulating, which makes for a tough par.
This is a very demanding hole from tee to green. A long fade will cut off some of the dogleg and leave you with 170 - 200 yards to a green that is guarded with a large pond. Take your par and run to the 17th tee!
Simply put, it’s the toughest par 3 on the course. A mid to long iron is needed to carry the wetlands that extend from the tee to the green. There is also a pond that guards the right side of this green. The green slopes from right to left.
An excellent finishing hole to cap off a great golf experience, this is the shortest par 5 on the course and a must birdie hole. There is a large fairway bunker down the left side off the tee. A good tee shot up the right side leaves you a clear view of this green. Be careful; there is a large pond and bunker to the left of the green.
