Great fun !!

This course was in great shape and the round was a blast. It is a very tough layout with placement being a key to a good score. Greens were great and the fairways are excellent. Enjoyed the day !

Affects of crazy weather

Course was in good shape given that we either have pouring rain or 100° temps. A couple of the greens are starting to be affected, but this is still the best value in the area. Staff are the best!

Latest round at Eagle Ridge Golf course

Wife and I played a round and enjoyed it even though it was a little hot and muggy. Course was in good shape for how hot it has been, and was not crowded at all. It’s a tough course but I love playing it. Wife is just starting out but she hit some good shots.and enjoyed it too! Definitely will be back soon.

Great challenging course

Excellent course if you want a true challenge, you will use about every club in your bag. Course in excellent condition with the exception of the bunkers being worked on and not playable. Greens are true and roll great.

EN June 2022

Fairways have greened up and are lush, greens are receptive and moderately quick. Bunkers have essentially been abandoned- no maintenance, no rakes, weeds starting to grow. Fantastic layout, very challenging, large fun if you pay attention to the “cheat sheet” full of local knowledge..

Great place

Course is tight and penalizes severely for errant shots. However play to middle of fairway and it’s a very fun and scenic course to play. Greens and fairways are outstanding but most bunkers have been totally neglected. Best to lift out behind without penalty.
Overall a joy to play

Greens were running slow. Rest of course wasn’t bad.

Played many times here. The manager even when she is nice still comes across grouchy.

Great Value - Challenging Course

The beautiful scenery on this track will be hard to top. It is target gol, so keep it in play and dial in your irons. It is a hidden gem in my opinion. Well worth the money and the trip to play this course.

4/13

Early season, fairways still dormant, greens recently aereated and shaggy, bunkers poorly maintained if at all. Fantastic layout and friendly staff. Make sure you get the hints sheet and consider playing the more forward tees if you’re unfamiliar with the course.

Eagle Ridge conditions

Probably the toughest course I’ve ever played. Nice tees, fairways and greens. Sand traps were in terrible condition. They need much attention. Course rated better if bunkers were addressed. Good for the money but could be rated much better with that extra effort.

Greens were bad, crazy layout

I get that it’s still spring and things are not in pristine condition and I’m a very average to below average player who plays some bad courses anyways but the greens were very, very bad. Fairways and everything else were decent for the time of the year but it was literally impossible to truly putt with all the sand and mounds of dirt on the green and ball marks.

Price was cheap with a hot deal so it did reflect that and this is truly one of the hardest courses I’ve ever played and I would go back if that improved but not knowing that the greens were still in that bad of shape.
