Ten years in the making, The Ridge Golf Course opened for play in 2013 atop old landfill site. Due to the technical aspects, involving nearly 2 million cubic metres of fill, The Ridge was the trickiest project that architect James Wilcher has dealt with to date.

Set within a sporting complex that also features six playing fields, twelve netball courts, an athletics track and an extensive driving range, the 18-hole layout measures just under 6,000 metres from the tips, playing to a par of 72, with holes arranged as returning nines. Water hazards come into play at several holes: a wetlands area surrounds three sides of the green at #2 and fairways ponds feature on #10 and #14.

Other notable holes include the short holes on the front nine at the 141-metre 5th and 137-metre 8th; (both with heavily sand-protected greens); the right doglegging par four 12th (where the green is guarded by five massive bunkers); and the 483-metre closing hole, with out of bounds to the left of the fairway as it veers slightly right towards the home green.
