CCH Safety specializes in providing its students with the knowledge and the experience required to apply for a concealed-handgun license within North Carolina. Students receive individualized attention and interact with the instructors in small classes. Each day-long course begins by covering the state laws and statutes concerning the ownership of concealed handguns. The instructors provide this information using PowerPoint presentations, educational videos, and demonstrations, and opportunities for discussions and questions are available throughout the session in a small class size, giving students hands-on help they need to apply for their license.
In the afternoon, the experts go over proper firearm maintenance as well as fundamental safety practices. Under their supervision, students visit a private range for live-fire practice with targets located at distances of 3, 5, and 7 yards. In culmination of a successful course, pupils can qualify to apply for a North Carolina concealed-handgun license, which has reciprocity in 37 states.

From the very first tee shot over a lake to the pond protecting the left side of the 18th green, the course at River Ridge Golf Club pits players against the physical and psychological challenges brought by omnipresent water hazards, including the Neuse River that intersects the course on several holes.
Architect Chuck Smith’s 1997 design weaves course play through a 6,740-yard gauntlet furnished with a plush carpet of bermuda-grass fairways and rough that gives way to fast-moving G-6 bent-grass greens. The course's signature 5th hole rewards golfers who keep their tee shots on the fairway with a short-iron approach that must clear a large pond and any caddies sunbathing in the large greenside bunker.
As a semiprivate club, membership at River Ridge unlocks a slew of benefits not available to the general public. Though the practice area—composed of a driving range and putting and chipping greens—is open to everyone, only members may make use of the locker rooms, club storage, and handicap program provided at the clubhouse. Additionally, members are granted access to special events, tournaments, and PGA pro Tim Cockrell’s lessons, which help players calibrate putting strokes and find their swing after a long time away from the game to search for their favorite golf ball that got lost in the Neuse River.
