    Played the indoor golf simulators at Falcon Ridge (they have two) today. The current models are of an older vintage and not high resolution but apparently their are some advantages of the older machines. However, the owner did mention to me that there are plans to purchase two high definition machines for next season at a cost of approximately $40,000 a piece.
    Price to play a round was $30. Check the Falcon Ridge website for deals for both simulator and course as during 2012 the 15th of every month will be $15 day to celebrate their 15th Anniversary.

    In 2009, Falcon Ridge opened up a glorious clubhouse that will be envied by many. I am very impressed as are many others.
    I'll try to make it out in 2010 and do a more complete review and update the slideshow to reflect any improvements or changes to the course.

    Getting near the end of the golf season. It looked like the greens weren't cut this morning.
    Fairways. Nothing exceptional. Nothing terrible.
    Very average tees.
    Not a Par 3 course but feels like one. This is a nice design if you don't have a lot of time or you're a short hitter.
    Mainly for the reason stated in #4-Course Design.
    Hole #2 is one of the more difficult holes with water to the left, right, in front of the tee, and in front of the green. Many of the Par 4's can be reached with a decent drive.
    Plain clubhouse but serves the purpose for the style of course.
    The Raceview course at Falcon Ridge is a nice course to play when you only have a few hours. During the mid-summer golf season Ladies Leagues take up the bulk of the time during the early evening. The course is a Par 35 but the yardage of 2563 from the white tees is short. Only one Par 5 and many of the Par 4's can be reached in one.

    Good sized greens, but hard to stick on landing... fairly hard ground.
    Again, fairly hard ground for fairways... easy to get long drives as the ball will roll quite a bit. Getting better every year.
    Depends on the week I think. Long grass one day, cut nice the next. Needs a bit of TLC.
    Old farm land. I do like when it goes in the trees... a couple of tight fairways, then it's wide open links style.
    Decent price in the late afternoon, tough to pay the regular price during the day for an old farm land type course.
    Quite a long course, especially from the blue tees. Two holes around 600 yards in length...
    Fairly flat, but still nice to get away.
    Staff are always friendly.
    Definitely needs improving, but works for now.
    Typical layout, nothing special.
    You'll use most of your clubs due to the different lengths of holes. 200 yard par three, 600 yard par five... etc.
