Ridges at Sand Creek Course Reviews


Reviewed by: Scott Koernig - Shakopee, MN - Scott shoots in the 90s.
Review Summary: Overall I thought the course was pretty good. It ten years when the trees have matured on the front nine it will be an even better course.
Conditions: Conditions were great. Greens, with the exception of one par 3, where is good shape. The fairways were well kept as well.
Scenery: Not bad. Still don't like the houses on a couple of holes, but the back 9 was extremely better.
Layout: Well done. Different shots needed on every hole.
Services: Good.

Review Summary: The course was laid out nicely with a variety of holes that went from tree lined to wide open. Nice scenery when you get down in the valley.
Conditions: Greens were in rough shape. (not sure anyone was fixing ball marks) Otherwise fairways and rough were acceptable. 5 hour 15 minute round was brutal. Where's the ranger when you need one?
Scenery: In the valley by the creek it's beautiful.
Layout: See Summary
Services: Personnel were freindly and helpful. Again, where's the ranger?

Review Summary: This is a beautiful course! Not the type you would want to walk, but the scenery and different shots you have to take make it challenging and fun.
Conditions: Outstanding, with the exception that the practice green was 10 times faster than the actual greens on course.
Scenery: It flows down and then back up in the MN river valley splendor. Lush and green, with wonderful looking bridges and views, makes it a joy on the eyes.
Layout: Fantastic. Rolling in and out of a river valley made many unique shots and angles. Forced layup off one of the tee boxes tells you that this is more of a thinking man's course
Services: Proshop people were friendly, and the cart beverage attendants were also there when you needed them. Very friendly as well.

Review Summary: Very nice course, not like your average metro course. Good mix of different holes and the scenery around them.
Conditions: Very good, and should be great mid-summer. Greens could be alittle faster but otherwise well kept.
Scenery: Awesome not many houses but there are big ones around the course. start and end playing open holes with few trees mostly long grass. Then go down into a wooded area where if its windy your pretty safe down there from all of it.
Layout: Good little bit of everything...tight fairways few are open. Challenging holes some you can try to drive but if you dont you could pay for.
Services: Good treated very well unlike some of the other metro courses who think they are a country club with strict rules.
