In 2017, The Ridge Golf & Gardens (Formerly known as Buck Ridge) was purchased by new owners and a major course restoration/reinvention project began.  Heading this massive effort was Superintendent Nick McAdow.  Nick came to us after being the Superintendent of Upper Landsdowne in Pickaway County.
