Pound Ridge Offers Fall Bargains
Pound Ridge Golf Club has instituted off-season rates of $150 before 1 p.m. and $100 after, effective November 3. Having just played the course, I can attest that it's in great shape and fall foliage made it even more scenic than usual.
Available seven days a week, the popular late fall, early winter rates include golf or pull cart, yardage book and use of the club’s practice facilities. More information on cancellation policies and exclusion dates is available at www.poundridgegolf.com.
“The golf course is in great shape this time of year, and the off-season rates are perfect for golfers to sample Pound Ridge for the first time, or to enjoy a value-packed return visit,” says Todd Leavenworth, General Manager.
Ranked No. 3 in-state by GOLF Magazine and No. 4 by Golfweek, Pound Ridge is a formidable challenge for accomplished players, with its 146 slope and 76.1 course rating from the back tees.
However, Dye’s use of handicap differential – matching the golfer's skill level to the difficulty of the challenge – in determining placement of the five other sets of tees makes the golf course appealing for every type of player. I moved up to the middle tees this year and still found it a challenging test.
Pound Ridge is unlike just about every classic layout in the area. Dye’s signature design elements --dramatic mounding, rhythmic routing and subtle deception -- are displayed throughout the par-72, 7,165-yard layout, creating a compelling and fair test of golf.
