This course, built on rolling terrain, is in excellent condition. The fairways are tree lined and well bunkered. The greens are large, undulating, and very fast. Most of the greens are well protected by sand bunkers, but there are no water hazards on the course. James Harrison and Ferdinand Garbin were the first to redesign this course in 1964, followed by William F. Mitchell in 1965.

Pleasant, well kept, but uninspiring, Jul 01, 2009

|I wouldn't argue with anyone who enjoys this course, but I would suggest that if you LOVE Blue Ridge, then you probably need to play more courses. Were this a public course, I'd say have at it -- it certainly is maintained in a manner expected of a private club. As for the layout, it better resembles Sportman's Golf Course, its highly public next-door neighbor. Blue Ridge is basically a quaint, forrested out-and-back, back-and-forth course, with a forgettable layout that includes several similar holes that run togther in one's mind. It also classifies as a "helmet course," because you are definitely subject to screaming liners at any moment from as much as two holes away -- that's what happens when you build 18 holes of golf on about 15 holes worth of ground. Ultimately, there's nothing really wrong with Blue Ridge, but there's nothing to make it stand out, either. Just up the road is Colonial Country Club, and that track blows Blue Ridge out of the water. If I were joining one of the two strictly based on the golf, Colonial wins hands down.|

Nice Course, Mar 27, 2004

|I played this course during a corporate outing. The course layout is challenging and the conditions are great. Good tee shots are very important on the par 4's and par 5's. Bunkers come into play off the tee and on shots in the green. There is only one water hazard that really comes into play, it is on your approach into a par 5. There is one other pond that comes into play only if you go over the green on one hole.
Overall, I really liked the course. If you have the chance to play the course I would suggest you take it.
