Ridge is the operative word at this 1999 Jack Nicklaus design east of Seattle. The holes run out and back along spines perched over ravines, with fairways and greens bracketed by sleek, modern bunkers. Though bordered by homes, the attention is more focused on elevated views of the nearby Cascade Mountains and dense evergreen forests. Holes 12 thorugh 15 play along the rim of a deep, wooded canyon that falls away tee-to-green on the left, followed by a short gambler's par 4 where players have to navigate a field of staggered bunkers.
