Golf Information

Welcome, and thanks for your interest in RCC as a new enjoyment center for the wonderful game of golf. In 2014 we changed the business model and direction of the club through new unique golf plans. For all new-to-joins, we introduced a reduced-price, full golf membership, and other ‘smaller’ golf plans. These various memberships are structured to better address the push-pulls of time that face everyone. Recreational time for golf can be met at a great value with the Associate golf plans. Here is some specifics of whats new and different at Ridgemont:

We created two designation to enable us to offer, define, the flexible and various golf plans. Prime time golf play is the designation for Weekends till mid-afternoon, and Fridays from 11 AM. Soft time, the non-prime times are virtually all else. In other words, Monday thru Thursday all day, Fridays morning and later in the afternoon.

The ‘Arnold Palmer’ Full golf program provides a huge savings from the current members’ dues. It is a prime time unlimited play plan. An experience Ridgemont opportunity. After the initial one or two year incentive period, dues must increase every year. To ultimately meet the same full dues basis as the current regular golf members.

The Associate Golf memberships, provide free-play privileges during various Soft-times, non-prime time play. The three (3) most popular Associate plans are:
• Sunrise: Tee off weekday mornings from opening until 10 AM and after 4 PM weekends.
• Twilight: Tee off after 3 PM all seven (7) days.
• Soft-time: Play any time Monday through Thursdays, tee off Fridays before 11 AM and after 3 PM, and weekends after 3 PM

Associate golf members can play during prime time, subject to a surcharge, on a pay-for-play basis. Tee-times during prime time can only be made by full-golf members

Associate Golf plans don’t enable the participation in leagues and tournaments. This is the distinction to a full golf membership, besides the prime-time opportunity. Thus, the value is mirrored for comparison, in the price of each membership category.

All new memberships have a 7 day advance tee time privilege. Charter members, those who were RCC members prior to the 2013 purchase whom remained members, receive a 10 day advance scheduling privilege. Also, any member who ultimately reaches, pays full dues-basis, receives the 10 day schedule privilege. We encourage discussion with current members to confirm that there is plenty of available slots for golf play at all desired times. Good advance planning will meet all player’s needs. Tee times are the RCC method for controlling the queue on the golf course and respect to everyone’s time. Tee times accommodate spontaneous needs and avoid suspenseful waits with the previous bag-lines method.

Pace of Play: IN-TOUCH with the group ahead, is the requirement for all golfers. RCC has been rated for pace of play at 4 hours and 05 minutes. We take pride in keeping awareness for/of ready golf at all times. All golf play is governed by tee times, reserved on the internet and/or through the golf shop. Times are 10 minute intervals. Our golf shop will gladly train, help more deliberate players be aware of mutual respect for all members.

Attire: We encourage and expect a tasteful appearance by ALL Members and their families, Guests and their families, and staff entirely within the Country Club facilities, in a smart casual manner. It should be contemporary with the times, yet still project a distinctive image of a PRIVATE country club.

For example, we enable, in the CLUBHOUSE Grille Room, the social center of the club, the wearing of jeans all year round. They are acceptable in fashion terms in todays’ society, and can be quite expensive and designer inspired; particularly known as ‘dress jeans’. Thus, we clearly accept that situation. However that is not to be confused with, and we do NOT enable, wearing soiled and tattered working jeans.

The Golf dress standards are typical of almost all PRIVATE COUNTRY CLUBS. More details are included under the Golf Information in the pull-down tab identified as "Membership". Please note RCC will not compromise on the traditional shirts-tucked-in rule, for example. Shirts must not be worn outside the pant/short etc. Also, cargo shorts are absolutely not acceptable. To clarify, shorts with external pockets, pleated or otherwise, but clearly extending outside of the leg line are unacceptable. In practicality though, what would be the standard and acceptable at any other private cc, is RCC’s policy for all golfers; Members and Members’ guests.

League offerings:
• 9 hole Men’s league: Wednesday afternoons, 2:30-6:00 tee times.
• Women’s 18 hole league: Wednesday mornings tee around 9 AM.
• Women 9 hole: Tuesday afternoons, 3:00 to 6:00 tee time.
• Couples Social: Non-competitive random Thursday afternoons during June-July-August

Mondays are often allocated for ‘outside’ outings. Private country clubs of the Rochester District Golf Association typically enable non-profit organization fund raisers, Charity sponsored events, on Monday afternoons, with shotgun start format. This serves the dual purpose of offsetting operational expenses, and meeting an obligation spirit of giving back to the community. These are interspersed through the golf season. We also honor member requests for small group outings on occasional Tuesdays or Thursdays, usually in the morning.

RCC is also industry affiliated with local and national golf associations such as the RDGA and USGA, the PGA of Western New York, and Junior Golf associations. All the private clubs are on annual revolving agenda to host tournaments and events by these organizations. These are a necessary obligation as a supporter of the game of golf, and our image amongst the private clubs of the area.

We provide a full golf calendar, truly offering plenty of opportunity for various agendas:
* Leagues provide various skill levels, genders.
* Tournaments; 1,2, 3 day events: These would include individual club championships, member/member and member/guests, and season opening and closing events, as well as unique one-day competition.
* Season long events: match play best ball single elimination
* ‘Sweeps’ on weekends typically, competing for individual gross and net results on a daily basis
* ‘Skin game’, a member run group at 10 AM most weekdays
* Players of all skill levels have leagues and tournament offerings.

Reciprocal Play: We participate in a reciprocity program with other western NYS Private country clubs, to accommodate travel and flexibility within the state and region. Recips are a privilege of FULL Golfers only; all play is no cost to the respective member. Requests for tee times at those clubs MUST be made by our Golf shop. We expect our members, and expect the same of all our reciprocal partners, to partake in food and beverage services of the host club, and to pay for riding carts always.

The Golf Calendar on the member website provides an accurate schedule of events. These are a great way to meet other members and participate in a regularly scheduled game. The club has several different types of leagues including ones designed specifically for men, ladies, couples.

The Golf Center, ‘Pro Shop’ is staffed by PGA Class A Professional Paul Sanders, Danielle Fuss, Assistant Professional & complete bag assist staff.
