River Ridge Golf Club :: Golf

Bridge Closure

The bridge at Auburn-Knightdale Road that is located just north of River Ridge Golf Club is currently under construction. As a result, Auburn-Knightdale Road is closed.



Landscape architect Chuck Smith designed one of the jewels of his career in River Ridge by carving six par-4s and an 18th hole par-5 into the unique landscape created by the ravines and rolling hills of the nearby meandering Neuse River.

With arguably some of the most varied terrain and thoughtfully crafted holes in the Triangle, River Ridge is artfully cut from its natural surroundings to create a perfect blend of impeccably maintained course conditions that are in harmony with nature.

We invite you to take your game experience to the next level; treat yourself to the remarkable variety of wetlands, lakes, large rock outcroppings, and gentle hills while improving the physical and mental aspects of your game.

Come enjoy one of the area’s most unique courses, blending equal measure of challenge, nature, and sophistication—River Ridge Golf Club.
