One of two Northern Ontario golf courses to make the top 125, Crimson Ridge is small-time architect Kevin Holmes best work. The routed is set into the rocky hillside to the north of Sault Ste. Marie, which is immediately evident on the dramatic 1st tee shot playing directly downhill over the East Davignon Creek.

The golf course has a plethora of holes worth noting, including the 2nd, a bending par 5 that slings itself down the hillside, the gambling 8th, and the two short 4’s at the 9th and 11th. Those with a camera dare not leave it in the camera for the signature par 3, 17th.

With all that is positive about Crimson Ridge, perhaps the most impressive aspect is the golfer begins their round and finishes on a downhill tee shot. Not only a compliment to the routing, but Kevin Holmes vision.
