The Ridgewood Lakes course is "user-friendly" for ladies and seniors too. Only one hole – a forced carry over water in front of the green – with every other allowing players room to run the ball onto the putting surface from the fairway.
Perhaps the best way to describe the high regard that Ridgewood Lakes is held is in addition to the numerous golfers who have come back many times to play, Ridgewood is a host venue for several of the Orlando area professional golf mini-tours achieving consistent rave reviews from these budding tour players.
Among the many memorable holes at Ridgewood Lakes, golfers often talk about the par-3 fifteenth, Ridgewood's signature hole playing to 185-yards from the back tees and 122-yards from the most forward tees. The view from the elevated tee is striking; a sloped green situated between greenside bunkers with a large pond to the left. Depending on the pin location and direction of the wind the club needed to "hit it close" may vary from a mid-iron to a wood and three is always a good score on the fifteenth.
