Friendly fyi... SkyRidge aerated the course, driving range, and putting green on Sunday (5/6 & 7/2018) and Monday.
Due to how sandy the greens are, greens fees have been temporarily reduced:
$10 for 9 holes walking / $20 for 9 holes with a cart
$20 for 18 holes walking / $30 for 18 holes with a cart
Thank you for your patience as the "dust" settles.
Okay, so how many golfers does it take to... Just kidding. :)
After another successful and fun Bayshore Tournament, the SkyRidge Employees and Volunteers set to work to aerating the greens. It wouldn't be a SkyRidge greens-punching experience without a mechanical snafu; and Murphy's Law was abundant with them. A broken belt on the puncher required four trips into Sequim on the first afternoon before the right one was found. Thus the crew was delayed several hours. Then, our loner tractor got stuck in neutral which slowed things up on day two. But, our intrepid group at The Ridge persevered and finished the daunting task that had stretched out before them; and no one went to the hospital. Chalk that up to a win!
Not all the volunteers are pictured above but here's who helped: Bill Bailey, Bud Bowling, Brian Cays, Matthew Cays, Kenny Chace, Britt Claussen, Steve Hall, Don Heinkel, Matthew Huswick, Bobby Kelly, Jim Lounsberry, "Munch", John Naples, Shane Price, and Pete Young, and along with Jeff, Jerry, and Marty Pedersen. And finally, a huge "Thank You" to Del Gott at Diamond Construction for the use of the tractor and to Tess Taylor for feeding this selfless crew.
The 2-Day, 2-Person Blind Draw, Better Ball
Memorial Weekend Tournament
The month of May brings about many situations to celebrate and recognize. May Day, May the 4th Be With You, Cinco de Mayo, the Sequim Irrigation Festival, Mother's Day, Armed Services, and Memorial Day. We at SkyRidge Golf Course believe it to be very important to take a weekend to honor our fallen soldiers during our 2-Day Memorial Weekend Blind-Draw, 2-Person Better Ball Tournament. Come on down for two days of golf on Sunday, May 27th and Monday, May 28th.
Format: Start Times are 8:30am both days from tees #1 and #7. Play 18 holes of stroke play from the green tees with your group. At the end of play, all the names of the participants will be put into a hat and drawn to determine the partners for each day. (You will not have the same partner for both days.) Payout is individual by Net score for the two day total.
Details: Greens Fees ~ $40.00 for both days of golf, $20.00 for the honey pot, and $10.00 for Lunch on Monday. Thus, the total regular fees are $70.00 for both days. Annual Members and Employees' fees are $30.00. All fees to be paid on Sunday.

SkyRidge Member, Rich Burlingame shot a Hole-In-One on Friday, May 4th!
He was on hole #10 using a Callaway Steelhead Pitching Wedge to hit a Srixon ball.
Neither he nor his golfing buddy, Dan Abbott, were aware that the ball had gone in the hole. SkyRidge Volunteer, Bill Bailey informed them as he was maitenancing the bunkers and watched as Rich's ball went right into the cup!
Congratulations, Rich! Well done!
Aside from their love of and dedication to the game of golf, the thirty participants of SkyRidge's SPRING OPENER had one more thing in common; on Friday night, they were all thinking the same thing... Is it ever going to stop raining?! Some prayed, some cursed, and some even pouted. And it was, perhaps, this collective effort of energy flooding the cosmos that finally brought about a pause to the rains.
Golfers arrived bright-eyed and bushy-tailed as the day started out with a bright, warm sun and blue skies. Fifteen teams of two competed. Net scores were based off 30% of the two-some's combined handicaps. Gary Thorne and Mark Mitrovich won by a landslide 7 strokes, shooting a gross & net score of 60! That is 12 under Par! Owner Jeff Pedersen and SRGC Member Shane Price took first net with their 60.7, followed closely by members Jerry Pedersen and Kenny Chace with their 60.9. Newcomers Danny Romero and Mark Hash brought it home for the third net and final payout with their 64.4. Well done, Guys! And a big "Thanks" to Don Purser and Kenny Chace for introducing these guys to SkyRidge and Soren's Café. But these great scores weren't the only events of note... Bob Kelly sank a 50' putt, clinching the long putt award from Josh Koester at the very end of the day. Sorry Josh, but Well Done, Bobby!
The golfers found themselves being coaxed in by the unmistakable scent of BBQ burgers on the charbroil grill. Tess prepared her amazing, homemade red potato and macaroni salads, and put out all the trimmings for BBQ burgers and dogs. Then our good friend, Lance, volunteered to barbecue burgers and dogs for the golfers. Nothing quite makes people feel like spring and summer are on their way like a BBQ on the back patio with good friends.
The sky danced grey and blue all day long, but the weather held until 3:45pm. By then, everyone had eaten, scores had been tallied, and awards disseminated. It was a fun, energized gathering of friendly athletes. A diamond-in-the-rough kind-of-a day.
Thank you to everyone who rang in a Sequim spring day and made this tourney happen. We hope to see more of you this season.

Welcome to SkyRidge Golf Course, the family owned and operated golf course off of Old Olympic Highway.
Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned athlete, you are welcome to enjoy all the amenities our public course offers, every day of the year. SkyRidge Golf Course has a driving range, putting & chipping greens, proshop, carts to rent, and access to a PGA-certified pro for lessons.
This summer, SkyRidge Golf Course celebrated its 14th year; and all year long members and visitors alike have said it's our best year yet. This land has a rich history. First settled by Soren Pedersen after he emigrated to the United States from Denmark, he developed an 80 acre dairy farm. The land has since been passed on to his children, Jeff, Martin, and Annie, who, with the help of friends, family, community members, Sequim Pioneers, and volunteers throughout the years, changed the topography of this slice of the Dungeness Valley into a links-style golf course.
We are a 10-hole golf course that doubles as an 18-hole course, the back nine being played from a separate set of tees. A 10-hole course?, you may be asking yourself. Yes! When playing 9 holes, you can either end your game on Hole #9 or use the finishing hole, also known as Hole #18. We boast wide open fairways, challenging holes with water hazards, and a breathtaking view of the Olympic Mountain Range,
