Blackthorn Golf Club at the Ridges, originally named Ridges Golf & Country Club, is a Private 18 hole golf course located in Jonesboro, Tennessee
The golf course opened in 1997. The course was designed by Arthur Hills.
Blackthorn gives the golfer drama and excitement. You will encounter water on seven holes, magnificent views and heart-pounding approach shots to the greens. Like hole #8, where you can play "safe" to the right side of Boones Creek or try to carry the green in two by flying over the water twice. It's a course that is designed to be fun, regardless of your level of ability. Then again, there's an ever-present temptation to "go for it." The course asks you to take the risks. You can here the course talking to you like Clint Eastwood, saying, "Feel lucky, well do you, go ahead and make my day."
