Any true golf resort should have more than just 18 holes. Built in 1991 and updated in 2016, the addition of The Ridge offers a true golf resort experience unparalleled in the Midwest. Given that The Cove already offered a classic design for The Lodge’s guests, the goal of The Ridge was to offer a resort-style course that all players could enjoy. Golf course architect Ken Kavanaugh more than succeeded with his brilliant use of the natural terrain.

Many golfers refer to the course’s altitude drops and generous landing areas as player friendly. This par-72 course offers rolling hills, natural rock outcroppings, native wildflowers and beautiful views of the Lake. With four sets of tees ranging from 4,617 to 6,447 yards, The Ridge offers a challenging layout for golfers of all skill levels.

Hole 6 will undoubtedly leave golfers scratching their heads and wondering what they could have done better. This long, narrow hole is often referred to as the hardest par 5 in Missouri. When it’s all said and done, golfers leave The Ridge with a smile, remembering a course like no other in the Midwest.
