Lake Ridge Golf Course Weekly Newsletter Jul 16, 2018
ROAD CLOSURE DETOUR
Murray Road is now closed until sometime in the fall. As a result you will need to take a minor detour to get to Lake Ridge. For those not familiar with Beaver Lake when you exit HWY 75, turn EAST onto ROCK BLUFF ROAD. Then turn RIGHT onto MONROE ROAD and then LEFT onto BEAVER LAKE BLVD. Follow the road around until you get back to MURRAY ROAD and turn LEFT. Your back on the right road to get to your favorite golf course and restaurant. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but this is out of our control. We have maps located between the Men’s and Ladies bathrooms for your convenience.
