Any true golf resort should offer more than 18 holes. The Lodge realized this and opened The Ridge in 1991 to offer a true golf resort experience unparalleled in the mid-west. Given that The Cove already offered a classic design to 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, 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 mid-west.
