Pine Ridge Country Club was founded as a private club and was the home course to Arnold Palmer during his three-year hitch in the U.S. Coast Guard during the late 1940s.  In 1996 Lake Metroparks invested over $500,000 to return the course to its original form and improve cart paths and landscaping.  An additional $1.6 million invested in the clubhouse and pro shop have given Pine Ridge excellent facilities. 
The course has practice putting and chipping facilities.

The above chart provides a summary of the seven courses we use for league play. The rating and slope indicate the playability of each course. The numbers are issued by the USGA and assist in comparing one course to another for handicap purposes.

  • Rating - This is the score a zero handicap player should achieve. When compared to par, it indicates whether the course is easier or more difficult. If course par is 72 and rating is 72, then the course is neutral.
  • Slope - Measurement of a course's difficulty based on two factors - length and obstacles. Obstacles include water, traps, fairway width and difficulty of the putting greens. An average course slope value is 113.     

Grantwood, Pine Ridge, and Briarwood, are fairly comparable. They are rated close to or a little harder than the average course. 

Please keep the above in mind if you have some leeway in the course you play. All courses are available for all members. However, the descriptions above should help you select the course that most suits your experience level. Obviously, where you work and live will have an impact on your decision. You can always start at The Links and convert later in the year to a different course as your skills progress during the season.
