About Holly Ridge Golf Links
Conveniently located just minutes from High Point, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and Asheboro; Holly Ridge Golf Links continues to lead the way in challenging, affordable golf in the Triad.  The course was designed by Jim Bivins and subsequently opened for public play in 1994. From the Championship Tees, the picturesque Par-72 layout can be stretched to 6,626 yards. In 2009, the decision was made to make the transformation to Champion Bermuda Greens, thus making Holly Ridge Golf Links one of the area’s pioneer courses in this regard. From the time of their implementation, the greens at ‘The Ridge’ have consistently proven to be the signature mark of the facility. Once accompanied by the beautiful rolling mounds, and precisely sculpted fairways, it becomes evident as to why Holly Ridge Golf Links is one of the Triad’s most sought-after courses to play.
