Meh, Not worth the money or the drive

Staff are not friendly. Was made pay an extra $10 each on our twosome because we rode in separate carts. Hello people, COVID. Lots of ground under repair. Back 9 bunkers are over grown. The place is in basic disrepair. Today reminded me again of why I don’t play this course.

Things are getting better!

I've played Eagle Ridge every year for the past 8 or so years. The first time I played it it was beautiful. Really challenging from the tips. The fairways were lovely, the rough fair, the layout killer, and the bunkering was great. So I returned. year after year and witnessed as this semi-private gem fell into disrepair. Specifically, the bunkers began to abandoned and eventually wh=ere marked as ground under repair. fit only for weeds and defecating dogs to enter. Each year I would ask what the plan was and each time the response was the same. "No idea." To my surprise this year was different. The bunkers have all be redone on the front 9! They are beautiful and the course will soon return to greatness once again.

Half the course is remodeled, they're making progress

I have always enjoyed the layout and the greens are almost always fair. They 10 holes that have had no remodel done are still survivable, but it's definitely undergoing a good transition. The major drainage problem certainly seemed better today at least.

I will be back, but I certainly would NOT pay full price while the construction is ongoing. But if you can find a deal, jum on it

They're trying - but its just a bad layout

This course has a rough history starting with something like 200 bunkers. Its gone a few renovations and its currently halfway through another trying to make it more playable. I love a challenging course, but there were several holes where I genuinely didn't know where I was supposed to be trying to hit it. Had to tee off with an iron on two of the long par 5's???

Course was in great condition (save the bunker remodel on the back 9) and greens were perfect. Looks like a venue tryng to reinvent itself again - best of luck - I'm rooting for you.

Good times

The course was good except No 1 hole was remodeling and there was no information on that.
But I don't want to complain because It's lucky to play golf in the COVID-19 situation.
The weather was good and the pace was good.
I got to remember my driving swing plane.
This was Good times for me.

Great course !!

Live in San Jose and been golfing for 6 years . Heard a lot about eagle ridge but never played . I finally got a tee time and I was not disappointed, the course is being reconstructed so some
Bunkers were under construction but it wasn’t all that bad . I’m a better than average so bunkers weren’t an issue. This course is fun and challenging. Don’t let bad reviews scare you try this course guarantee the fun.

Great potential but falls short

This is a great course but unfortunately requires a lot of work. It is good to see the sand traps are finally getting repaired. For the price they should also have a ranger to keep the pace consistent.

Great course and value!

As a local I play this course more regularly than others (it’s just 5 minutes from home). Every time I play it I am challenging my abilities which is something a good golf course should do. Currently they are renovating the sand traps around the course and are nearly done with the front nine. After hitting in (and out of) a few I can say this is a wonderful improvement. Temporary greens and some tees are setup for a few holes at a time.
Afternoon times are quite affordable and pace of play is pretty good. The back nine is a great challenge, so gear up for it on the front.

challenging

This course could be the mother of all challenges if the condition of the bunkers is improved - as they are currently. Thge back nine is a killer.... you MUST be straight and have a command of distances you hit each club.

Family emergency

I had to cancel due to a family illness. I couldn't cancel via golf now app. My buddy asked if there was anything he could do for a refund. Said the guy was not very cool about it. I don't expect anything but customer service is Paramount in my book. There are nice ways to tell someone no dice! I do like the golf now app though.

Great Course If You Can Overlook Construction and Soggy Fairways

My first time playing here. I knew there would be some temporary greens, and I knew some bunkers would be under construction as well. What I didn't expect was how soggy the fairways and fringe would be, especially on the back 9. Very very wet, making the course play much longer and making it very hard to hit crisp irons and wedges. Greens in excellent shape, and very quick. I will return in the future and hopefully play a dryer, less handicapped version of this course than I played this week.
