8 July 2020 - Burning Ridge
It's been a few years since I've played Burning Ridge and it was good to be back. There was a ridiculous amount of rain the day before so wet conditions were expected. Conditions were:
Tees - Good. Pretty flat too, which is appreciated.
Fairways - Good.
Rough - Very good.
Bunkers - Too much rain & lots of standing water. Can't really say anything because of that. Considering the rest of the course, I would imagine they are well maintained too when dry.
Greens - Very good. Probably running 9. A little better than Pine Hills which I played about two weeks ago.
Cart Paths - Could use some work. Lots of standing water because of the rain.
I like Burning Ridge. The par 3s are tough with some challenging forced carries. Most of the holes homes are not in play. Where you can see the homes, they are far enough off the rough where you'd really have to miss to hit into them.
Big thumbs up to Burning Ridge based on current conditions.
Thanks for the update. About ten years ago I playedBR and really liked it. I'm playing it later in the summer.
I played BR many times. This golf course is under the radar. I like this course. A good value.
Thanks for the report. All what is important is there.
Golf is a game. We play it. Somewhere along the way we took the fun out of it and charged a premium to be punished.- - Ron Sirak
Thanks again @Polekat914!
Burning Ridge is a good bang for the buck kind of course!

We always enjoy playing Burning Ridge during the winter. Course is usually in very good condition.
Good report on Burning Ridge, a course we seem forget about over the winter time, maybe next year.
I liked BR the one time I played it.
Thanks for the reports David.
