The Family Course at Ridglea Country Club is an old, traditional course that features narrow fairways and small greens.
It was built in 1928 by course designer John Bredemus. In 1954 Ralph Plummer renovated parts of the course.
It was then redesigned in 1987 by Jay Morrish. The course is always impeccably maintained and features Tifsport fairways and Tifeagle greens.
The front nine offers players reasonable chances at birdie with par 5's on No. 1 and No. 9, but there is plenty of golf in between.
No. 1 starts you off on a tee surrounded by a horseshoe of seasonal floral with a view that stretches south to the horizon.
The hole is guarded left by fairway bunkers and doglegs right over several fairway bunkers towards a well guarded green.
No. 4 is the first of Ridglea's incredibly demanding par 3's. Looks are deceiving when you read the yardage at 156 yards,
but hit your ball above the hole, and you will be praying for only a three putt! No. 5, the number one handicap hole, is a long
dogleg left with trouble everywhere but down the middle. A small lake juts out from the left and the right is guarded at length
with out of bounds. Adding to the difficulty of No. 5 is a small hazard down the right side 150 yards from the green
and two deep greenside bunkers.
The back nine is no less benign than the front. Sloping greens and tree lined fairways are par for the course. At 430 yards,
hole No. 13 plays as the number two handicap hole. A well struck left to right tee shot will avoid the trees on the left and the
out of bounds on the right. Unfortunately, you are still left with almost 180 yards to a well protected kidney shaped green.
No. 16 heads towards the clubhouse and steeply uphill. Once on the green you have a spectacular view of south Fort Worth,
but a putt too well struck can send you fifteen yards back down the hill you just ascended. No. 18 concludes your round
with a fair chance at birdie. This 485 yard, par 5 , has three adjoining lakes on the left side with 20 foot fountains billowing
from two of them. The right side of the fairway is tree lined with two fairway bunkers that must have magnets.
The green is mild by Ridglea standards and is often viewed by spectators from the 19th hole balcony.
