Latest Golf Hole Pictures

Photos on This Page Last Updated September 29, 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.

Regards,

Oaks Course "Is Back" - Weekend of September 29-30, 2019


September 29, 2019

Ok! The Oaks Course "is back". The 2019 renovation is past and we move on with the new Oaks Course. I loved the old Oaks Course and I look forward to the weekly golf/walks on the new Oaks Course.

Not a lot of photos taken this first 9-hole golf/walk for my wife and I (a 9-hole, "inside nine" morning); I wanted to not bother anyone with my taking photos (much) as we played this first time on the new Oaks Course. I will regularly, now, be adding to this Web page mainly Oaks views. We enjoyed the Lakes Course while the Oaks was closed/being renovated -- but, now: The Oaks will return as our favorite golf/walk (I will not miss the Lakes' Course walk 16th too to 1th tee!). It is nice to be back on the Oaks!!!

Oaks 1st Forward Tee

New trap on the right; probably not reachable for me. Definitely in-play for longer hitters. Trap on the left was removed.
MANY trees removed from view past the green (looking a long-way-down to the Oaks 2nd tee and Oaks 17th green areas).

Lakes Course 13th - Par 5


September 1-8, 2019

As we took our regular Sunday-morning golf/walk including Lakes 13th, I had occasion to take a few photos and save them, below. (Sorry, I neglected to take a photo from the Front tee; I will do that soon)... I will no doubt use one in the 2019 Calendar that I put together. Which of the following? We see.... In any case, Lakes 13th is a favorite-drive spot for many of us.

A good start to "Fall Season" golf in our part of the world. If asked, I always respond about when is the "best" time to play golf in the Raleigh area? "September 15 -thru- October 15". We are getting near to that time! Good.

I remember the "aiming tree" to the right of the lake.
I wonder how many current players remember such?
Not important, just a curiosity.

For we "normal" players.
Depending upon second shot aggressiveness and pin placement: 150yds -to- 80 yds (uphill a bit) to the green.

One "has to be" on the "correct level" to hope for a 1-or-2 putt.

A wonderful/warm/"muggy" August morning - However: Some good shots / some "bad" shots (is there a bad shot when taking a golf/walk?) this enjoyable morning.

Clubhouse Area - 2019 Oaks' Renovation-Related

June 30, 2019

Progress is VERY apparent, now. Will "it" Make it by Mid-Sept? Stay tuned...


Viewing Oaks 18th Approach Area from Clubhouse Deck
The green appears to be smaller than before - and, the Three tiers are "gone" as well, it appears. Looking good, though!
June 30, 2019


Viewing the Practice Green from Clubhouse Deck
This area's ground/grass must be very confused, the number of times over the years this area has been "renovated".
Could this time be long lasting? Stay tuned....
June 30, 2019


Not Golf-related - but, I save this for General Information-sake.
Recently re-added to the Lounge wall. I like it!
Do you remember many of "these" people?

Oaks 12th - Par 4

June 14, 2019

A wonderful Par-4 that has even become more-beautiful, visually, after the "tree removal" projects of the last couple of years. The photos do not do the view justice - but, give an indication of this quality golf hole.


Trying to put it all into one photo/view;

Second Shot Area on a Par-5 on the Lakes Front-side

June 13, 2019
This golf hole has not changed much over the years - no need for it to change a lot!
A true par-5 for most of us; well-protected on all sides and long, on the third shot, is "not good".
A fine golf hole.

A really-good Par-4. From any of the multiple tee locations.

However, this photo serves the hole's driving challenge quite well and is worth saving/viewing/remembering.....

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 renewing 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).

Getting Started on the Lakes Course
Lakes 1st Forward Tee

Two Lakes Second Shot Areas - About 225 yds to Green

Lakes 2nd Second Shot Area

Lakes 17th Second Shot Area
March 24, 2019

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.
