Pros: Beautiful one of a kind matching baskets! Great signs at every hole, benches at most, and "next tee" signs so you wont get lost. Elevation plays on almost every hole, and fairways are well kept. Many stone lined creeks and streams traverse through Ridgeline and come in and out of play. Quickest and shortest at LaVallee, which makes it great for beginners or a great warm up.
Cons: Bugs were hungry, don't forget your bug spray. I encountered mosquitos, flies, and ticks. Some holes run close to each other, could be a problem when the course is busy. Elevation can be steep, might not be for everyone. If your putting is not accurate, you might get frustrated with some of the dangerous pin placements.
Other Thoughts: This course is marked "beginner" but I would say it is far from that. Although it is the easiest and shortest (most holes less than 200'), it still can be a challenge for experienced players. The unique pin placements and elevation require accurate putting and placement. A missed putt can easily turn a birdie into a bogey, and "roll-aways" are common. Even open holes aren't open, they are dotted with trees, water, and elevation (1,2,18). I thought Ridgeline was a great way to start a round at LaVallee.

Pros: Mix of open holes that meander into picturesque forests shots. Lots of elevation changes that cause tempting ace runs and birdie putts to become trouble par and boogie putts. Very well marked out course with outstanding signs, tee pads, and baskets. The terrain is well taken advantage of with many shots over small rocky streams and excellent basket placements. A fantastic introduction to the rest of LaValle Links.
Cons: Not many to be sad here. Wood chipping is still in process, but it doesn't interfere with the play of the course. James wanted to apologize for not having the chipping not finished yet, but I didn't see any reason to apologize. Others would say that some holes play to close, but it is a 'beginner' course and so the proximity works well.
Other Thoughts: This course has all the characteristics that the rest of what LaValle Links has to offer, matching colored KingPins, great signs, tee pads, and benches. The play of the course moves fast (about 1:45 mins) and gives you gleamers of what's to come. Make sure to bring bug spray. I'm from MI and LaValle Links was one of two course complexes I came out here to play. Totally worth! Don't sleep on LaValle Links!
