Ridgeview Country Club - Region 6
Reviewed by:  Dan K - Duluth MN. Dan shoots in the 80s
Review Summary:  This course is my favorite in Duluth. Not very long, but it makes you think alot, and does have the longest hole in Duluth (#2). Has the only complete water hole in Duluth (#17). It is a par 70, and the back nine is (in my opinion) a little easier in my opinion, even though it is a par 36. Overall a great course, and beats both the public courses in Duluth, and comes close to Northland Country Club.
Conditions:  Great, except the fairways have a few rough spots.
Scenery: Feels like you are in the mountains, with all of the rolling hills.
Layout: Very good, feels like you are in the mountains. Each hole feels like its own, even if it is next to another hole.
Services: Great, especially the food.

Review Summary:  This course is always fun, the greens are great, the fairways could use some work, but even though it's a short course, it can EAT YOU UP!!! I have always loved the hills here, and if you can get on #2 in two shots as I did in their Invitational last year, you are doing something right!!
Conditions:  Superb! Great greens ALWAYS, especially around the end of July (Invite). The fairways seem to have trouble usually, but that doesn't take away from the course too much...
Scenery: The hills are great, and even though this course is built on little land, you feel like you're in your own world on every hole!
Layout: Hilly, challenging, stay below the pin!
Services: The best in town...private service, but public feel from the members and staff

Reviewed by:  Jack Manny - Duluth, MN. Jack shoots in the 90s.
Review Summary:  Very good course though it was private. Though there was no views of Lake Superior, you felt like you were in the mountains. The 17th hole was very cool as it required a shot over water (only full water hole in Duluth) and over a waterfall to a green between the waterfall and the water making it feel magic. Also, the longest hole in Duluth (591 yards).
Conditions:  It was in good shape though not different to any public course in the area. The greens are very FAST.
Scenery:  Very nice but no Lake Superior view.
Layout: Very well, some variety but the 10th hole is a par 3 (kind of weird to start with a par 3).
Services: Very good.

Reviewed by:  Mike F - Minneapolis, MN. Mike shoots in the 90s.
Review Summary:  The course is my favorite course in Duluth. I like how the holes are layed out. The only bad thing is there is no view of Lake Superior. But it feels like you are in mountains with the rolling hills surrounding the course. My favorite hole in Duluth is also here (17) which is the only real water hole in Duluth. This is actually an easy course (in my mind the easiest of the big four: Northland, Enger Park, Lester Park, and Ridgeview). Oh and if you golf here, prepare to walk (this course is the very tiring including a lot of elevation change). I wish it was a public course.
Conditions:  Good conditions. It is not a 5 star course in terms of shape but keep in mind it has to make it through the rigid and cold Duluth winters.
Scenery:  Great except no lake views.
Layout: My favorite layout in Duluth.
Services: Outstanding. I love their food.
