Explorer Ridge Golf Club

Designer: Adam Benjamin

Staff Review:

Explorer Ridge is a countryside course with a very unique look...and that's a good thing. Benjamin has clearly brought some of the inspiration from his last great track, Ascension Bay over to Explorer Ridge. This course made me sad when I looked up and saw I was nearing the end of the round. It's just that good! I could not wait to get to the next hole to see what sort of hole I'd be playing next. 


Explorer Ridge definitely appeals to more of a fantasy crowd, but there is nothing here I believe would make course "purists" wonder "why did he do that?" Each hole is very unique and has at least one thing on it that makes it truly memorable. The short par 3 18th hole is the best of the bunch and will make you want to come back for more very soon.

A well deserved 5-star badge here, well done!
