Latest Golf Hole Pictures

Photos on This Page Last Updated April 8, 2019

This Web page contains golf hole pics of North Ridge CC that have been "recently" added to our Website. I put recently in quotes, as I am not sure how often the page will be updated. It depends upon weather/camera-availability when I am on the golf course and other factors.

It is intended that the next phase of North Ridge photos will be movies of each golf hole. When will that be completed? I have no idea. None of this is officially part of North Ridge and its projects; I am simply an interested member of North Ridge Country Club who enjoys this topic.

Some of the pictures included in this page are also on the primary pictures-of-golf-holes at North Ridge Web page pointed to my this site's navigation page (see the above "About Us, Newsletters, Discussion, Golf Course Pictures' button).

The photos/site are purely taken as part of my interest and are shared for others who have a common interest in this matter. Period.

If you have pictures of North Ridge CC that you feel would contribute to this site: Thank you, in advance, for contacting me.

A Few Looks at the Pre-Renovation Oaks

April 3, 2019

We took a walk around a few of the Oaks Course holes prior to the "Renovators" getting to them. It was a nice walk - and, I will be adding some photos here as time allows.

Moving Sunday Morning Golf/walks to the Lakes Course For Awhile

March 24, 2019

Well, the Oaks Course has served my wife and I well for many years. Now, it (the Oaks Course) is getting a renovation that is taking place from this past week until at least late-Fall 2019. We wish the project well!

As a result of the renovation, my/our play will be on the Lakes course. Ok! We used to play the courses equally and we look forward to re-newing our Lakes Course experiences. (Note: Over the past few years, the Oaks course dominated our golf-time as it has been a more-comfortable golf/walk as I got older. Of course, we HAVE played the Lakes over the past few years - simply, just "only" when we participated in a tournament/competition and played a golf/cart-riding round. I only mention this as an aside as to why I have only played the Lakes a few times per year over the past few years and this section of this Web-site has up until now been dominated with Oaks course photos).

The view, as with many of the holes now on the Lakes -- and, will be the case on the Oaks after the current renovation has been completed -- is quite open and less tree-lined than I remember it being. Of course, my being a fan-of and luckily participant-of Scotland golf: I love such a view and this view gave me a smile. If one "blocks out" the right-side fairway trees, this morning's view brought back memories of the Eden course in St. Andrews.... always, a pleasant thought/memory.

Lakes 16th (New - to us) Front Tee: Upper-level location

Although a year-or-so old, this was a new tee location to us.

This golf hole and the subsequent walk green-to-17th tee is an example of why golf/walk-wise the Oaks course dominated our play the past few years. Ok! We will take our time during play this Summer in this area of the golf-course and following golf/cart players will, I am certain have patience with us.... I am old, now!

Saying Goodbye to Golf/Walks on the Oaks Course For Awhile

March 17, 2019

The Oaks Course) is getting a renovation that is taking place from tomorrow (March 18, 2019) until at least late-Fall 2019. We wish the project well!

As a result of the renovation, my/our play will be on the Lakes course. Ok! We look forward to the Lakes. Below are just a couple of photos from today's (March 17, 2019) golf/walk in preparation of "following" the Oaks' Course renovation a bit photo-wise. I will decide how to / where-to put renovation photos as time moves along. Goodbye, for awhile: Oaks Course golf/walks! See you in November 2019 (or so).

It will be interesting to watch how these views change as the renovation / tree-clearing / ground re-shaping / bunker removal/replacement/addition takes place.

Getting Started with 2019's Photos

January 27, 2019

It has happened that January, 2019 has been a "Sunday-less" golf-weekend time for me (the Sunday weather has not cooperated): Except this morning (January 27). It was a beautiful (even though cool: Started out the round in full-sun, mid-30s F. Wonderful! Still amazing, to me (A Minnesota-born golfer) to be playing at such a temp) start to the 2019 golf-year weather-wise -- and, we even had some good golf-shots!

A Walk Around (some of) the Lakes Course:
(Only Lakes #13 Tee Area Shown Below)

December 25, 2018

An early-morning walk on Christmas Day. No golf clubs taken along, during the walk. Pure pleasure. Some frosty ground at the start of the walk -- brought forth some special views.
Have a good 2019!

An Approach At Movies

Note: I have not had time in a LONG while to update the Movie part of this Web page. If you DO look at the following movies and are interested in such, let me know - and I will attack the updating process. I used the approach shown, below, as a learning-exercise for my benefit and have moved on to movies sufficiently that I could improve the following if I believed it to be necessary. Thank you for your patience. I will, of course, e updating the golf photos (below) on a regular basis.

If you have time to test something: I am heading down a path of "movies" of the golf course. I am a novice at doing this - but, I am making progress in learning the fundamentals of handling my small digital camera and the PC/Web-related matters that are necessary to view the movie.

Note: If nothing shows up - OK - just kill your Web browser session and, if you have to send me a message saying you had no luck: Thank you, for letting me know that.

If totally not interested in testing this - just scroll past the following section or use your Browser's Back button or -- Exit your Web Browser as you normally do.
