Thank you for visiting the official site of River Ridge Golf Course. Playing anywhere from 2,711 to 3,291 yards, River Ridge offers golfers of all levels an enjoyable yet challenging experience on a rolling and scenic layout.
River Ridge is well-known around the tri-state area for its large, true and slippery greens. Bunkers, grass mounds and water hazards dot the course and can be found on eight of the nine holes. River Ridge boasts one of the longest Par 5's in the Midwest. The uphill and usually upwind #4 plays to 601 yards from the back tees and nearly 560 yards from the white tees - par is always a good score on this hole. Or challenge the downhill #7 with your driver, a risk-reward Par 4 where the green is reachable from the tee when the prevailing south wind is blowing. Anything less than a well-executed shot on this hole will find the water fronting the hole or risks going out-of-bounds left.
At River Ridge we're committed to providing you a great golf experience with small-town hospitality mixed in. We're confident that you'll enjoy our nine great golf holes, full-service clubhouse, outstanding practice facilities (complete with practice green and driving range), and friendly staff. All of these will combine to make your golf experience at River Ridge a memorable one!
While in Garretson make sure to visit Devil's Gulch, where lore has it that Jesse James alluded a posse in pursuit by jumping a chasm in the rocks on horseback near Splitrock Creek. Camping is always nearby with Palisades State Park (just under a mile south of River Ridge) or Splitrock Park, a city-operated recreational area on Garretson's north end. Please keep the Garretson community and River Ridge Golf Course in mind for your next golf outing.
