Getting better

I had read other reviews that the course had not been in great shape until more recently where some efforts have been made and it's definitely better but there are still some greens that have scarring or brown spots as well as in the fairways. Some of the tee boxes were a little worse for the wear. Looks like they make have some pests they are dealing with. Interesting layout, people are friendly and not much playing pressure on the Wed I played.

Eagle Ridge constantly improving

Since during the COVID I have played this course while Management has been making a lot of improvements to the course. Looks like they are complete now and my friends and I are going to be playiing here alotmore.
The layout is challenging, the staff always friendly and very courteous,fairway,greens and even the sand traps are in great condition.
Most definitely will be back, best deal for the money,especially in this area.

good but not great

Course layout in peaceful community is always fun and interesting. Landscape and houses along around the course looks amazing. Great work done for bunkers but tee box areas are total nasty. I felt like teeing off on the bunker, literally no grass but sands. They need to take care tee box and some of fairways grasses.

Getting better for sure

They have been remodeling the course to improve bunkers and playability, especially around the greens.

The new bunkers are much better. The greens were in pretty good shape. This course still needs to fix some irrigation issues that leaves wet patches next to dry patches.

I enjoy this course, but it's a little shy of 5 stars

Always a challenge at this great track. Some fairways were burned out, but greens were really good. Only issue was old unfixed ball marks. Traps have a lot of new sand but they need work.

Rehab coming along nicely

The bunker rehab is coming along nicely and close to completion. Greens are in acceptable condition as are fairways. Tee boxes could use some love.

Eagle Ridge!

Had a great time with my wife. Met a friendly local. Beautiful course and very challenging. Cant wait to come back when construction is complete. Staff was friendly and the grounds crew are doing a great job keeping the fairways and greens immaculate. A+++++++++
