Ridgewood Country Club – Private Club – Danbury, CT.
Not one, but three outstanding course architects have had a hand in the creation of Ridgewood’s golf layout, including Devereux Emmet, Geoffrey Cornish, and Roger Rulewich. The result is a course that is challenging and a pleasure to play for golfers of every skill level. The course flows gracefully over peaceful rolling terrain that’s perfect for casual golfers. More competitive players, though, must fight their instinct to let down their guard because a wide range of challenges – demanding doglegs, water hazards, large elevation changes, and stone walls can quickly inflate scores. Much of the course, which measures 6,758 yards from the championship tees, has been significantly upgraded over the past few years both to enhance the quality of the Ridgewood golf experience and to maintain the traditional design elements intended by the golf course architects. Members enjoy an active tournament schedule for both men and women. In addition, there are several twilight mixed 9 hole tournaments throughout the season. Our Junior Golf Program has been redesigned giving juniors more access to the golf course and driving range. Forward tees have recently been added with matching scorecards to offer young juniors, new players and senior players shorter course options.
