Prairie Ridge Golf Course first opened for play in 1911.
Morrison Country Club was originally established in 1918 as a nine hole private course. It was was sold in the mid 1990's. The new owners kept the name but planned to make it an 18 hole public course designed by Dave Hilty. The completion of the new nine holes was delayed and the course was sold again and named Sunset Woods. Still unfinished, the course finally closed and was rumored abandoned for good until Lowell Beggs and Javier Carreno purchased the course in May of 2007. The clubhouse was remodeled and the greens and fairways were rebuilt. The course and restaurant were brought back to life. In 2008 the business officially opened as Prairie Ridge Golf Course
With its many elevation changes the course offers beautiful vistas of the countryside within the city of Morrison. The course offers a variety of challenging and enjoyable holes with mature trees, thick rough and a few narrow fairways. The greens are undulating and well bunkered. Water hazards include three ponds and a creek that are in play on seven holes. Yet, overall, the course is very playable for all ages and skill levels. A driving range, practice bunker and putting green are available.
The course is par 72. Total yardage: Blue - 6341, White - 5993, Gold - 5204, Red - 4907.

I've played at Prairie Ridge Golf Course for 25 years and have seen the course go from a 9 hole private course to an 18 hole public course. It took a long time to get the added holes in good enough shape to officially call it a playable 18 hole course but it is in great shape now and surely one of the best courses for the price in this area. Do yourself a favor and play the course and while you're there, try the great fine dining at the Oak Room Restaurant.
