Always a decent course on the Central Valley stop. Cencalhack did an excellent job describing conditions and the layout of the course. Greens remain the strong point of the course. They are fairly large with some challenge but predictable breaks. Carts offer pin sheets with greens broken down into thirds so the pin sheet will just give you a front , middle or back location.

Fairways are dormant but still very playable. Tee boxes on the par 3's were all in need of some Maintanence. they were horrible. All of the other tee boxes were decent. I agree, the course plays harder than it suggests. The main thing here is keeping your tee shot in the fairway and out of a fairway bunker. as long as you do that it's a very scoreable course in that there's not much trouble around the greens outside the traditional bunkering

Ridge creek also makes you feel like your actually at a GOLF course and not just a random field with 18 flagsticks. By that, I mean, they have a nice rock waterfall entrance, a great practice area (grass range, multiple chipping and full wedge stations) and the pro shop & restaurant buildings actually have some nice architectural design to them.

Yes, this course is in the middle of nowhere but it doesn't feel like it once you enter the grounds

Also. I've only played here mid week so POP is always great

He would play this course again.

IMO this is the best architecture for all courses in the central San Joaquin valley. From each tee you can see what options the designer has provided to you; chew off as much or as little as you want. Greens are receptive and fast!

My biggest complaint is the SUPER thick rough that is WAY too penalizing for a golf course that does not need such defense. Play this track from the back tees and it offers all the challenge you'd ever want without needing the thick stuff.

Will continue to play there, but would like to see it mowed down in the high areas to be more golfer-friendly :)

Greens are a bit soft but are in very good condition. Lack of play and the perfect fall weather has allowed the course to speed the greens to the point where you really have to pay attention. The size, undulations and speed make for a challenging day.
Fairways are dormant and have tight firm lies.
First cut of rough is dormant but has been left alone which is helpful for keeping balls out of the native unplayable grass.
Native grass unfortunately continues to thrive and is green thick and nasty. Any ball hit into these areas (which are everywhere) are almost always lost and result in delays and increased pace of play. I realize that for aesthetics and challenge they are necessary, but it would be ok not to continually water them. Allowing them to thin out would be a huge boost to PoP.
Sand as always is very good and the deep bunkers both in the fairway and greenside are challenging.
Tees are level with dormant or semi-dormant coverage and little to no divot damage.
One of the group members pointed out the absurdly low slope rating from the blue tees (116) and we debated if the system was in need of adjustment to not emphasize length as much or if the reviewer never left his cart lol. This course is definitely more challenging from the blues than several other local tracks with higher slopes.

Great golf course! Fairways were awesome and greens were fast. Whenever I can get a chance I try and head out to this course because it never lets me down.
