LakeRidge Golf Course
LakeRidge Golf Course is a Robert Trent Jones Sr. course. Jones, the biggest name in golf architecture in 1960s, incorporated challenges and aesthetic appearances in his designs. He has been entrusted by the developer Sam Jaksick to design a championship course which will be a centerpiece for his initial plan community development. The risk-reward course was completed in 1969 featuring large greens, rolling valley, wall-to-wall landscaping and challenging tee boxes. Today, the trees planted in the course had already matured creating a classic look in the layout.
The 18-hole golf course has four tees including Jones, LakeRidge, Nevada and the newly added Manna. The longest tee measures 6,715 yards with a slope rating of 130 and course rating of 71.8. The holes have its own characteristics which golfers must take note. Hole #6 is rated as the no. 3 handicap hole which requires a proper club selection. Hole #12 has slightly elevated boxes requiring a solid shot as there are two ponds which serves as an obstacle. But the most famous Hole #15 is a ball-eater with 140 feet downhill elevation. Although the course is challenging, the well-maintained manicured green and the extraordinary blue-green water surrounding the hole gives a rewarding magnificent view to the golfers.
