11th Hole at River Ridge
Located on the back nine of the River Ridge golf course, the 11th hole is a signature hole. This par 4, 378-yards in length, requires a good tee shot from elevated tees over a marsh to a narrow fairway that is protected by two strategically placed bunkers on both the left and right of the fairway, will leave a short iron approach to a peninsula green. The green is wide but not deep and is bordered by sand traps and grass bunkers on the right and water in front, side and back. Club selections, accuracy and a good golf swing are important.
River-Ridge-Hole-3 3rd Hole at River Ridge
The 425 yard par 4, 3rd hole on the River Ridge course is without a doubt one of the best golf holes on the course. The fairway is guarded on the left by a long and narrow fairway bunker and on the right by a natural preserve and the St. Lucie River which run the entire length of the hole. The river, which should not come into play, provides a beautiful setting. The green is guarded by on the left by a large and deep bunker on grass bunkers on the right.
4th Hole at River Ridge
The 418-yard, 4th hole, may not be taken for granted. The drive must be long and straight in order to avoid the trees and bushes that boarder the teeing area. This par 4 doglegs slightly to the right. The approach shot must carry a preserve/marsh area in front of the green while avoiding traps on the right and left side of the green
River-Ridge-Hole-5 5th Hole at River Ridge
Signature 5th hole, par 5 is private, long & very challenging!
18th Hole at River Ridge
The par 5, 18th hole is a great finishing hole. This double-dogleg par 5 is extremely demanding. The drive must stay out of the wetlands on the right and a sand trap on the left. The fairway is protected on the left by a large fairway bunker that runs from 170 yards out to just short of the green. The left front of the green, left side and entire back is protected by sand traps. This hole demands attention to the end.
