Getting Better

I have played Eagle Ridge many times over the years and always appreciated the design and challenge. I have also called out the deficiencies in its maintenance like years of bunkers overgrown with weeds and fairways under construction. But lately I have noticed the course is looking much better although still not perfect (but what course is?).
To summarize- this in a five star course in four star condition.

Great layout, wait to play in the Summer

With the rain, drainage seemed to be an issue, especially with the slopes here. 7th and 8th fairway are destroyed by boars , 14th fairway is tarpped.

For the price there are better courses , the layout is challenging and fun , greens were in good shape overall. Will hope for better conditions come
Summer and may try again

Eagle Ridge

Good greens- fast and true-some tee boxes needed help along of course with the animal issues of some fairways - no place for comfortable (inside) 19th hole beverage.
Not a fan of hitting of mats to warm up either

Great layout

Great layout and views, greens were in excellent condition. Front nine fairways were in better shape than the back nine. Back nine fairways could use some work in some spots Overall great course. Will go back when I. Area

Poorly maintained

Too many pitch marks. Too many poorly maintained areas. Some poor fairways.
Inconsistent sand traps. Practice golf balls Too old. Indoor Food service poor. Golf course is not a well maintained course. Obviously not enough maintenance workers. Once desirable, now more like a C+ level public course.

Slow play

Slow play can be a problem here but can be solved by sending a marshal out to pick up the slow players.

Solid Track

Eagle Ridge has gone through some major and positive renovations. For starters the course has reduce the number and sizes of many traps making it a much fairer course.
The fairways are in great shape and the greens continue to challenge the best putters, but the large greens offer great opportunities for amazing putts.
An early start will get you around in 4jrs or even less.
You will need all your clubs and each hole has its own risk reward, but at the end of the day it only makes you better.
I have been playing Eagle Ridge for over 3 years now and play there 3 times a week. There are serious discounts for different memberships which I have done.
