River Ridge is a very average course located about 15 minutes North of Foxwoods in Jewitt City. Built in only 1999, the course is still new so is in good shape still and has distance. The front nine is way easier than the back on this 6800 yd layout, so get off to a good start. They converted an old apple orchard into the first 3 holes so its wide open and flat and should send you out smiling. The back nine has narrow fairways, doglegs and water which makes it tough for any golfer. To score here you may need to lay up often because of the quantity and placement of the fairway bunkers.
Tee times can be made on their site. The restaurant is decent and has a ski lodge type of feel.
Overall it gets a 6.5 and if you don’t feel like forking over $200 to play Lake of Isles this is a great 2nd choice.
