    The Homestead at Wolf Ridge has invited us back in 2010 to update their review and slideshow. In 2009, an additional nine holes was added to provide members and public players a full 18 hole golf course.

    Greens were average speed and decent shape for the current heat spell. Not overly large in size.
    Some interesting ups and downs on fairways. Fairway of hole #3 can be quite a challenge.
    The tees were generally in good shape but a bit on the small side. Each of the four tee colors usually have their own box.
    Most of the holes have a bit of elevation change. The par 3's are straight forward.
    The 9th hole causes trouble as the fairway narrows making for a tough finishing hole.
    Average price for a nine hole course.
    I normally make this a yearly stop with the family because it's 9 holes and not overly difficult for the kids.
    A decent mixture of difficulty and ease.
    Not a lot of water but the bordering woods and rough make it easy to lose a ball. Tall grass borders some fairways making a simple end hop into the long stuff an adventure.
    Moderately manicured. A quaint county setting.
    Didn't see a beverage cart but I didn't expect one either. You do pass by the clubhouse between holes #3 and #4 so get your drinks there.
    I had a nice chat in the clubhouse but beyond this I didn't encounter any other staff as is the norm for most country courses.
    Clubhouse is adequate for the current size of the course but may need to be expanded if another 9 holes is added.
    Parking lot is a bit of a hike to the proshop so you'll want to use the bag drop.
    Ball washers were available but sometimes out of reach when I wanted to use one. Plan ahead.
    Easy course to navigate except around the clubhouse where a few tees exist.
    Nice driving range.
    Traffic on the course was light the day we played. Seems vacationing cottagers aren't playing as much this year.
    Second 9 could possibly start in fall of 2006.
