Deer Ridge is actually called "The Monty"
Pros: Just to update, the 5 other reviews on this course are old, so please disregard on those reviews the things that I correct here; Holes 1-13 are in the woods, and new pins and short/long pad locations have been installed. The course is well-marked, and signs exist for every hole. All teepads are natural except 1 and 2, which are concrete. The baskets have all been painted metallic blue, and the numbering on the baskets is correct.
Also, new work is being done that will add four stellar holes in the woods. The Monty is very close to having 18 in the woods and 5 alternate pins in the open.
Some folks don't like natural pads. I may be biased, but I think these are some of the best natural pads around. When the course is where I want it to be, then I'll worry about getting pads.
CON: The deer tick cycle begins in late February and runs until mid summer (some time in June). Though you may get them on you other times, they aren't nearly as persistent as during the season. They don't enjoy Permithrin or 100 percent deet, though the permithrin keeps them off better than deet. In the early summer, the tick population is comparable to Lake Russell's woods or the old Ant Farm in Hogansville, the course that mostly inspired the Monty.
Other Thoughts: 1. The Monty is going through some changes that I think will really put it on the so called map.
2. The map on the back of the message board is wrong as far as layout is concerned. It won't be changed anytime soon, but I'd like to note that it's wrong.
