River Ridge Golf & Country Club is part of the Country Club Tour group, a membership that lets you play on four Edmonton-area golf courses. River Ridge sits along the south shore of the North Saskatchewan River, tucked away among dense forests of mature trees that are home to an abundance of wildlife including beavers, deer, and elk. The seemingly isolated golf course gives no indication that it's within the city limits. The peaceful seclusion is the perfect setting for a relaxing round but don't get too comfortable because there are still several challenges in store. There are four large lakes and numerous ponds that come into play throughout as well as a heavy smattering of strategically placed bunkers. The golf course begins with a tough front nine but the gentler back nine provides some opportunities to recoup your score.
