This course, which is private, along with Ghost Creek, which is public, are the courses owned by Pumpkin Ridge. This course features many hills that can cause uneven lies and trees that line most fairways. The rough is generally long on the sides of the fairways and around the greens. Some holes have tall prairie grass lining them. The members play these areas as lateral hazards, for even if you find your ball, you can rarely get it out and back into play. In areas where the prairie grass isn't present you have large trees that can block your shots. The back nine has three par 3's and three par 5's. The greens are generally very fast. The course has many outstanding holes, but the one that is probably photographed the most is #5, a 211-yard, par 3, which features a large pond on the front right of the green. The green is slightly downhill from the tee, but the distance you save in having a downhill shot is usually offset by the wind. Hole #3 is a very tough and very pretty 414-yard, par 4, which has a dogleg right fairway and plays uphill. In front of the green is a creek so you need a very good approach shot or you'll need to lay up. A second signature hole is #14, a 470-yard, par 5. This is a pretty hole with a dogleg left fairway and it plays downhill. There is a pond in front of the green with a very narrow entrance on the right side of the green. Any shot left of the fairway will be either in tall rough with a sidehill lie or in the water. "Golf Digest" rated this as the 2nd "Best in State" course for 1995-96, and the 3rd best for 1997-98. "Golf Digest" rated this as the #1 "New Public Course" for 1992. In addition, "GOLF Magazine" awarded it 72nd among the "Top 100 Courses in the U.S." for 1996, 69th for 1997 and 81st for 1999. "GOLFWEEK" ranked it 21st among "America's 100 Best Modern Courses" for 1997, 38th for 1998 and 31st for 1999. The Pumpkin Ridge courses were the site of the Nike Tour Championship in 1993 and 1994, plus the site of the 1996 United States Amateur Championship, where Tiger Woods won his third consecutive Amateur Championship. The U.S. Women's Open was played at this club in 1997. Tee times for this course may be made by calling (503) 647-9977.
