I got a great price after 11am on Tuesday, Nov. 14, so I gave Westridge a whirl. The service was great in the pro shop … very efficient and courteous.
Course conditions were pretty darn good. Cart path only on holes 1 and 10. The tee boxes had been over seeded, so all the movable markers were at the very back of the teeing areas. Tee to green, the grass coverage was good to adequate. The bunkers I was in had enough sand in them, though the players ahead of me failed to rake their footprints on a couple of occasions (not the course’s fault).The greens were in good shape, which means they are tricky to read for players who don’t play here often.
I really enjoy the layout here. It’s plenty long for recreational players, and many of the holes have unique character and challenging greens. I had a couple issues with previous management here, but the current owner seems to be better. It looks like Westridge will be allowed to die with dignity, at least. (Editor’s Note: At present the future is unclear regarding Westridge. If conditions are improving and look to be continuing to improve it is the humble opinion of this writer that Westridge is a must play course for at least the foreseeable future.)
Sentimentality is a big part of the golf landscape. I suggest that you play Westridge at least once more … if you’re heart is in the game.
