Course needs some maintenance

Tee boxes have lots of unfilled divots and bare spot. Fairways have lots of ground under repairs and bare spots, green condition is also deteriorating. While bunkers have new sands, the sands are very fine and there are lots of small rocks in the sands.

Love Eagle Ridge

I love Eagle Ridge. The staff is always friendly and the course is great. I always go up there a couple times a week either to hit a bucket or play. I wish I could get up there more often but unfortunately I have to work. Great facility!

Great Course in Below Average Condition

I have played this course numerous times over the years and love the views, layout, and challenge. But the course condition is often disappointing and was especially bad this last time. Many fairways have huge dirt patches with ground under repair (some freshly seeded) that isn't labeled as such. There are areas that are overgrown and just poorly cared for. It's a shame because this should be a Country Club quality course, it's that good of a layout. But be prepared to play winter rules regardless of the weather.

Hi.

There were just a lot of dead areas/dirt on the fairways. Some of the greens had a little bit of weeds growing on them and the tee boxes weren’t great. Hit from the blue tees and one of them had all dirt and no grass. Still had a good time, played this course a few years ago and it was in better shape.

Rough and tough

Great course and challenging course. A few of the tee boxes were in rough condition and a few fairways were in tough shape, but overall eagle is a great course with some great views. Definitely would get out and check it out if you have yet to play.

Good conditions

I might have given the course more 5 stars if not for the greens having craters all over them. The divots were everywhere and had to be fixed on every hole before putting. I must have fixed 5-10 on every green. We also got backed up quite a bit at about hole number 7 and it was slow going from there. Overall it was fun and I will definitely play there again.

Not worth $86…

I play Eagle Ridge a lot every year. The greens and traps were really good this time. The tee boxes and fairways were terrible. I know they are preparing for aeration on the fairways and we are in a drought, but it shouldn’t be that bad when other courses are in good shape. They can’t seem to get the entire course in good condition at the same time. Not worth the $86. The way the course is it should be less than $50. The staff are friendly and super nice, but come on with the conditions. Eagle is such a great facility surrounded by multi-million dollar houses, but the course needs to be better.

Ask before you play

The course was good until holes 16 and 17. The tee boxes on 16 are nonexistent. on hole 17 half of the hole is fenced off due to dead fairway.

H20

I understand we have water issues in California but this is a golf course after all! I mean first of all it’s nonpotable water they use anyway so at least get the fairways in shape. (Brown spots everywhere!) I never got called for my tee time out and the person at the desk didn’t really seem to care to talk much! I had to walk up to a 3some and ask them if they were there 10:40 group. If a few little things can be done maintenance wise this course would be great to play and challenging for all levels. Unfortunately one person in our group considered to be worthy of playing the tips DO NOT if your handicap is 10 or above! He was not! makes for a long day :(
