Named best new resort course in 2004 and currently ranked as the #25 best public course in the nation by Golf Digest. Consequently, exceeded the accolades of it’s sister course, The Legend Giants Ridge.
Giants Ridge began as a ski hill. Owned since 1984 by the state economic development agency, it expanded to include a hotel and two golf courses. To mild surprise, the Quarry Giants Ridge turned out to be an exceptional golf experience.
The Quarry Giants Ridge has a well regarded collection of three beautiful and challenging Par 5 Holes. The landscape has been used masterfully to create interesting shots that require some careful thinking. The tee shots require precision.
On this day, a sharp nine iron to six feet set up a nice birdie.
Quarry Giants Ridge – Back Nine
Not only does the back nine continue the beauty, it continues to require even more precision.
The short 323 yard Hole #13 is the coolest Par 4 on the course. Set from an elevated tee to a fairway split in the middle by a pot bunker, great shot selection and execution are essential. There are many options for the player which is exactly how it should be.
The long Par 4 Hole #18 finishes strong. After all it’s 468 yards tips (448 yards Blue) with a sharp dogleg guarded by two bunkers. Of course, the tee shot needs to hug the left side but clear the bunkers. Then you have a mid iron for the approach shot. Otherwise even a long but straight drive will leave a long iron or hybrid into the last green. While the final green eases you into the clubhouse, you’ll have no trouble remembering a heart pounding and stimulating round.
