It’s a shame

The course is challenging but the bunkers are in terrible shape. The greens are in good shape, the amenities very limited. It’s a shame because Eagle Ridge should be a gem.

Best game ever! I was on fire

WOW I was actually shooting like a pro almost every shot it was amazing and so great when I struck the ball and how straight ,long and far it went and this happened in every part of my game ! Each shot was amazing. At first I started slow and was held up by 4 foursomes but by the sixth hole I broke free of them by them letting me play through. I them got 9 pars and 1 birdie through 6 -18th hole

Still an excellent venue for serious golfers

It had been a year since I played here and I was not disappointed. The greens were in excellent condition and the rest of the course (tees, fairways and rough) in very good condition. This is a challenging layout though not unfair if you place your shots strategically. The clubhouse and maintenance of the premises are very well managed.

Take a drive - it is at the top of the list for Santa Clara County golf courses.

Awesome Greens

Eagle Ridge greens are almost perfect and I hope they stay that way, if everyone fixes there ball marks it should stay fast and true. I had an awesome time playing golf there.

Course in great shape, bunkers still bad

Staff claims that the bunkers are being rebuilt, but those that have been done are still quite poor. The rest of the course is in nice shape, especially the greens, which are beautiful..

The course layout was very fun, with interesting holes that never felt repetitive. There was a good mix of challenging holes and some shorter scoreable holes. You still have to make good shots as the greens are challenging with multiple tiers but in great condition. Approach shots are key. Pace of play was pretty standard for a busy Saturday. My only complaint were the course conditions, too many holes with muddy, soggy fairways that ate clubs on contact. The bunkers are being played as ground under repair as they replace the sand so I give them a pass on those conditions. This course would be much more difficult with in-play bunkers.

Great track that’s fun to play, some of the fairways were a little ruff and the bunkers were also pretty bad. Greens were great very nice. They are working on the bunkers but it will be a while before they are in good shape.

Eagle Ridge, Gilroy, Ca

Love the lay out but the tons of sand traps don’t have sand and it has been like that for years. I don’t play it often but they were the same the last time I played it they were the same. The greens were well groomed but very slow for a coarse like that I thought they should be way faster but maybe the members like them I didn’t. Fairways and rough were great very fair. If they speed up the greens ( and not much but need to be ) and put real sand it would be worth the money but would never pay full price as it sits!

Eagle Ridge does not soar

What a disappointment. The course conditions from tee to green were beyond horrible. Tee boxes were uneven. Greens were riddled with fungus. Fairways were overwatered and often had water spots in the middle of summer no less! And the bunkers? Ground under repair; every single one of them.

The amenities? I ordered the breakfast burrito to only find out that they microwaved the meals as opposed to cooking up a new one. The cart girl cake around on he 15th hole when we were nearly done. Such a disappointment. As a PSA, save your money and go elsewhere.

Nice Course/Good Value on GolfNow

Most everything about the course is enjoyable. The layout offers good variety of length, elevation change, non-parallel holes, left-to-right, right-to-left, etc... Tees/fairways/greens are all in good shape. They're finally working on the traps which will bring this course back into excellence.
