  • Family Course
    • 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.

  • Championship Course
    • Designed in 1968 by Ralph Plummer, the Championship Course is an excellent compliment to the Family Course. Somewhat different from the Family Course, the Championsip Course is considerably longer and has less change in it's terrain. However, due to it's length, tall rough, and trouble waiting around every dogleg, it is considered by some to be the more difficlut of the two golf courses. The Championship Course plays to a higher course rating and slope rating and is reserved exclusively for play by men. The greens are Tifeagle and fairways are 419 Bemuda.

      At 450 yards, Hole No. 2 is the number one handicap hole and is guarded on the left by the Trinity River and the right side by out of bounds. Two excellent golf shots are the only way to make par at this tough hole. The par 5 No. 8 offers a decent chance at birdie, but the tee shot at No. 9 will get your attention if you get too comfortable. The Trinity river runs the length of the hole on the right side, and a 100 foot tree guards the left side of the fairway. No. 10 is loaded with hazards. A lake guards the landing area on the right side that runs the length of the fairway to the green, where a second lake is guarding the back side of the green. The tee shot at No. 12 must be precise. Mary's Creek crosses the fairway and requires you to carry the tee shot almost 200 yards to a very small landing area. Don't take a breather because tall trees and a large bunker guard the left side of the green. No. 14 is the risk-reward hole that can make or break your round. Mary's Creek winds across the fairway in front of the tee and down the right side to the green. The par 5 No. 18 offers one last chance at birdie to save your score.
