Elkhorn Ridge Golf Course

elkhorn ridge golf courseDesigned by Pat Wyss, the Elkhorn Ridge Golf Course is designed for golfers to enjoy the open and beautiful natural landscape of the Black Hills. Golfers will be challenged by the mix of rolling prairie and the hills extending from the northern tip of the Black Hills.

Opened for play in summer 2009 as a 9-hole course, Elkhorn Ridge is currently in the process of expanding to a full 18-hole course. Construction is scheduled to begin on the back nine holes early in the spring of 2012.

Golfers take advantage of the views of the Elkhorn Peak to the southeast of the course and scenic panoramas of the Ponderosa Pines of the Northern Black Hills. As the newest golf course in the Black Hills, it is staffed with a PGA Golf Professional, offers exceptional training, customer service, and the latest in golf course amenities - including a practice facility.

Perhaps the only thing better than being able to access a top-rated golf course from one’s backyard is the added bonus of using a cart enhanced with the Visage Mobile Golf Information System. Current and future residents at the Elkhorn Ridge Golf Estates can take advantage of the numerous high-tech features now available with each golf cart.

While on the course, the Visage system will provide full hole fly-overs, superior 3-D graphics, yardage, distances, and course maps, instantly available at the golfer’s fingertips. Better knowledge of the course allows golfers to play better and faster. In addition, the Visage enhanced carts are not allowed to travel near muddy areas to prevent unnecessary wear and tear on the course.

This championship course, rated a 74 by Championship Tees, ensures a challenging game for players of all levels. The slope rates 122, with a par 36 for the 9-hole course.

When you live at the Golf Estates you will be able to begin your morning with a round of golf with your neighbors, or golf as the sun sets over the hills. However you play, the course and club house and Elkhorn Ridge will exceed your golfing and leisure expectations.
