Founded in 1924, the Orchard Ridge Country Club is nestled on 120 acres of beautifully rolling ground on Fort Wayne's southwest side. A beautiful apple orchard situated on a hillside marks the grounds and this natural feature of the property has given the club its name. Just far enough from the hustle and bustle of the city, the Ridge offers a quiet, relaxing golf experience without the hassle of traffic and houses everywhere.
Orchard Ridge is a beautiful, mature golf course which places a premium on shot-making. Tree-lined fairways, strategic bunkering, and four lakes must all be accounted for while avoiding the rough and natural areas. The gently rolling terrain makes accuracy a premium over distance.
The relatively small and fast greens require precise shots to score well, although the course is not so difficult as to punish players of lesser skill levels or anyone hitting an errant shot. An enjoyable, challenging layout that you could play every day and not tire of.
Over the years, the club has hosted numerous professional and state events, including the Ben Hogan (now Web.com) Tour and the very first Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) event in history in 1955.
