It really seemed harder to shake off this winter than any year previously.  The snow in April was definitely a bit more winter than anyone was hoping for!  And now, we are hoping (like everyone else we know) for a terrific summer to make up for it!  Winter was wet and icy, but I am happy to report that the course did very well through all the up and down weather, and I am very pleased with the conditions overall.  As always we look to ensure that the course measures up with the high standards we've always set here and we're on track to deliver some great golf for 2019.  The course opened on May 10th and we're excited to build on Chef Paul's great menus and our event teams are working hard to bring some great entertainment to The Ridge for you to enjoy.  

Ladies' Day - Each Monday from May 27th until October 7th

Play 18 holes any time of day or 9 holes after 2 p.m.  Call to join up with other ladies or we can pair you up with someone new. Scoring takes place over the first 9 holes only.  For anyone playing 18 holes there will be additional contest prizes to win on the back 9 as well.  Ladies league entry fee is $5/person for prizes plus your applicable green fee.  Handicaps will be used to determine net winners.  Players without a valid handicap can still participate and one will be determined for you.  Prizes for flight winners, closest to the pins, etc.

Men's Day - Every Tuesday from May 28th to October 8thThere will be prizes for flight winners, closest to the pins, most accurate drives and other fun games each week.  Format is "play your own ball."  $5 entry fee to join men's league.  Play 18 holes any time of day or 9 holes after 2 p.m.  If you have a Golf Canada Index thats great well use it to determine your net score.  If not, we'll figure out a handicap for you based on hidden holes.  Anyone can play with or without a valid handicap.  Prizes will be awarded to net score flight winners and for proximity contests.  Prizes consist of golf shop merchandise credit which you can accumulate and use on merchandise throughout the season. 

We encourage you to visit our Events Calendar often at for the best view of entertainment and dining events we have planned for 2019.  We'll keep it updated with menus, pricing and time of events so you can get all the information you need in one spot.  We look forward to seeing you at the Ridge in 2019.

Sincerely, Drew
