I used to play Westridge, also known as “The Ridge,” quite often when I lived closer. This track is on the west end of the Salt Lake valley and has a pretty interesting layout which features some great elevation changes and course shaping. Visit the new HOG Westridge Image Gallery.
Westridge is a very cool track. Not long but challenging. - click to see gallery
I played The Ridge yesterday in a small charity tournament and was surprised to see how all the trees had grown since the last time I played there. The place looks great and is currently in great condition.
Unfortunately, the word is that the course is going to be shut down and torn up to accommodate a highway which will be going right through it. Sad deal. I heard the course will reopen in a couple of years, but the layout will certainly be different.
