Bancroft Ridge Golf Club – a new Start
The date was April 9, 2017. John Puffer and Danny Jackson purchased the former River’s Edge Golf course and were on a mission to transform the somewhat tired golf course into the Bancroft area’s best 18-hole golf course. A very ambitious goal considering there was so much to do in so little time.
Fast forward 3 months and wow what a difference. The course has never been in better shape and golfers are raving about the improvement in greens and the fairways. Behind the scene, a lot of improvements have been made. including the following.
