Course Review and Comments

Orchard Ridge will not be a test of your length. The test comes from small greens with adequate protection. Accuracy off the tee will play a role in your success as many fairways are tree lined. This course is superbly maintained throughout the summer.

The par 71 layout will test your mettle with 5 par 3 holes including the 150 yrd #9 to an elevated green surrounded by 5 bunkers. The signature hole #17 is another 150 yrd par 3 with an elevated tee over a pond with a fountain to the green.

My only complaint to be had is that several (13,14,15) holes on the back 9 feel slightly out of place in the layout. The course rebounds nicely though with 17 and 18 being a wonderful finish.
