This is the country club for people who don't like traditional country clubs. Growing up in clubs taught me manners, and also exposed me to things like racism, classism, and superiority.
Ridgeway was never like that (at least, to me). This used to be the primarily Jewish country club in the Memphis area, located just inside the Collierville town line. With the transient-and-fruitful properties of Collierville's booming population, this has become the suburbanite's club, retaining much of its older heritage but now serving families of schools such as ECS, Hutchison, and St. George's. The club has geared itself toward the young families and keeps the children busy with a special kids' area, which is supervised on Thursday evenings. There is a Kids nite on Thursdays with a clown who does balloon art and face painting, from 6:30-8:00. They have a gifted event planner who will do kids' birthday parties, and other holiday parades and parties throughout the year, such as Halloween.
Note, if you stay after the dining room and kitchen are closed, they will charge you!! All the food is made in-house, however, down to the mini corn dogs. Food and anything from the bar is also available for order by the pool, which is super convenient on hot summer days.
The service is great, however, and if you become involved, this can be a very comfortable place for your kids to grow up, be it on the courts, in the pool (and bouncehouse), or on the golf course.
