On October 3, 2011, golfers enjoyed the last day of play at the former West Ridge Golf Course, as the Utah Department of Transportation’s Mountain View Corridor Project was planned to cut through the back nine of the course. Rather than reconfigure just that portion of the golf course, West Valley City chose to close the course for a season and revitalize the entire course. The course will reopen as Ridge Golf Club June 28.
The project, designed by the Bates Golf Design Group, includes a complete redesign and reconfiguration of the course. Grading changes and hole direction changes are among the changes. In addition, upgrades have been made to the existing clubhouse including all-new interior décor, a modernized pro shop, refurbished Grille and updated Overlook at the Ridge banquet facility.
“The new course features a classic design with multiple bent grass tees to accommodate golfers of all abilities,” said golf pro Mike Richards. “The fairways offer a mixture of rye and blue grasses and a variety of elevation changes to provide a challenging but fair game to even the best of golfers, and we have installed green tees for limited-flight golfers.”
The Ridge Golf Club will open to the public following a reopening celebration Friday, which will include guest speakers, a ribbon-cutting a golf tournament and lunch.
