Aerial Video Golf Tour
Verdict Ridge Golf & Country Club is located on the quiet, west side of Lake Norman, just 20 miles from uptown Charlotte. Verdict Ridge was established in 1998 and today is considered by many as one of the best golf courses in the Charlotte area. The golf course is a true test of golf and has hosted qualifying events for the US Open, US Amateur and the Web.com tour. The semi-private club offers members and visiting golfers 5 sets of tees to appeal to a variety of skill levels.
LA Management Company broke out their video drone to shoot a beautiful, hole by hole tour of each hole.
Enjoy the tour below. (We did all 18 but put up only 9, see all at VerdictRidge.com
The opening hole is a straight away par four with water down the left side and guarded by a fairway bunker. The safe play is the right side, but the best play is a drive that favors the left side, giving you a better approach to the green.
KEY: A very deep green requires you to play to the appropriate tier.
A medium length par three awaits you on the second hole. Tour tee shot should favor the left side of the green. Shots left of the green feed back towards the green.
KEY: Right is a hazard and penalty by death!
The first par five offers the best chance for birdie and for some an eagle. Tee shots should favor the right side for the best angle on your second shot. Avoid the fairway bunkers on your lay-up shot.
KEY: Going for it in two? Any long iron or wood shot just left and short of the green kicks forward and to the right.
KEY: The green is deep and narrows at the back so pay close attention to the yardage and play for par.
This risk/reward par 4 slopes left to right so favor the left side. The fairway runs downhill at the 235 yd mark and most players play to the top of the slope to leave a middle to short iron to the green.
KEY: The more you bite off with the drive the shorter the second shot, but also the increased risk of danger.
This par three will test your nerves with a long iron shot and hard-to-hit green! Note the collection area on the left side of the green that funnels marginal shots off the green. Club selection is key and par is a great score.
KEY: Check the wind
The signature hole at Verdict Ridge. Big hitters may not want to hit a driver on this hole. Choose a club that will leave you 85 to 100 yards to the green. This green slopes severely from back to front so take note of the pin position. Be aware of the small collection pond on the left side of the green.
KEY: If the pin is on the top tier, you must get the ball to the hole.
