Central Wisconsin Golf Card Tour: The Ridges, Wisconsin Rapids

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

This week's stop on the Central Wisconsin Golf Card Tour brings us to the Ridges Golf Course in Wisconsin Rapids.

Many of the courses we've covered this summer boast very different front and back nines.

The Ridges takes that to a new level.

"What we like to say here is that man made the front nine, and God made the back nine," said Max Goska, the courses assistant general manager. "So we have a lot of man made water hazards on the front nine. Back nine, basically, with the creek, there's a lot of old trees back there, so the back nine has a lot characteristics of more natural, with the front nine having more man made obstacles."

The Ridges has been around since the 1950's, and has seen a lot of changes under the current owners, who have been there since 1995.

They say the pandemic has brought out golfers in droves. But even with more golfers on the course, their staff has done an incredible job maintaining the course.

"Definitely worth the drive. Right now our greens are unbelievable. Along with a few maintenance things we've cleaned up this year. We put down new drain tile on 10, which dried that up completely, so now 10's back to normal. So right now, the course is in the best shape it's ever been in," Goska said.
