“Very Scenic..”

River Ridge Golf & Country Club
Attraction details
Reviewed 15 September 2014

It's my first time to play this course.... It's beautiful out there knowing it's just the south of Edmonton.... Very difficult course though and definitely you need a cart to play this course since the lay out is a little farther when going from one tee box to the other (specially from the 9th green to the 10th green). The course is along the North Saskatchewan river that's why it's very scenic.... Make sure that you review the course lay out before playing here as this will help your game specially off the tee shot and your crucial 2nd shot. The greens are nice but since it's been drizzling here in there.... the greens are a little bit slow so try to practice first at their putting green to get the feel and speed before playing.... Other than that... I'm glad we did try playing this course.... And definitely there will be a second time.... By the way, the restaurant is good and reasonable price....

I liked the setting of the course on the North Saskatchewan River but the course itself is a bit of disappointment. There is a lot of choice in the Edmonton area and in my view you can do better. Very difficult course to walk due to the distance between the front and back nine. The front nine is very tight. Will not rush back.

I have golfed at almost every course in Edmonton, even a few of the private courses. River Ridge is a fairly good value for your money as compared to many other courses in Edmonton. The course is set along the North Saskatchewan River valley, so it is very scenic. Given its location, your chance of encountering wildlife (beavers, deer, elk, etc) here is fairly high.

The carts are not always well maintained. Three times in the last two years I have had carts die on us, however the staff was fairly quick to shuttle out new carts. Howver, this may be a case of not charging them regularily.

The course is typically kept in amazing condition. The fairways and greens are typically in really good shape. The practice facilities are decent as well. There is a practice putting green, driving range (shooting into the water is always fun), seperate practice chipping green and practice bunker.

The clubhouse is not spectacular, but they do serve tasty food. You won't see beverage cart staff out on the course all that often so stock up on whatever you require before-hand or at the turn.

The front nine is much more interesting than the back nine. There is a good mix of water and sand on the front, but not many hazards on the back nine. I have spotted marshals out here from time to time. This course definately plays faster than most of the city courses as it doesn't get quite as busy.
