The Ridgefield Golf Course Improvement Fund (RGCIF) is a non-profit charitable organization started in 2011 by a group of Ridgefield golfers and the town golf professional. The initiative came from a love of the game, pride in our unique and lovely town golf course and a desire to improve the course by funding course improvement projects.
The hope is that through a series of fund raising and awareness activities that residents and non-residents, golfers and non-golfers can be encouraged to make tax deductible donations towards funding improvement projects.
Projects funded would be geared towards those that have the greatest impact and perceived need from golfer feedback. These would vary from year to year and would be supplemental to the town funded projects, not a substitution.
2017 is our seventh year. Most of our focus has been on rebuilding bunkers so that they do not flood when it rains. Ten bunkers have been rebuilt and they no longer flood. Other improvements include an new red tee on #16, covering creeks & paying for the pipes that are put in place, and adding a new, level tee box to the driving range.
Future projects envisioned are more sand trap upgrades. The two traps on #1 and an new fairway bunker on #2 are on the target list for 2017.
If you have any questions about the RGCIF please contact the board President, Chris Radford 203-231-3530.
