Great course and staff

The gentleman in the pro shop with the glasses always exhibits fantastic customer service. I usually stop by to hit a bucket and play here periodically. The course is in really good shape. Don’t let previous reviews criticizing the conditions scare you away. Most of the bunkers are played as ground under repair. No big deal because you get a free drop. Otherwise, course is in better condition than 90% of other Bay Area courses

Nice Staff!

Except for the bunkers (they are continuing to work on them) the course was in great shape. They are much more flexible than their sister course (they welcome golf now customers and are accomodating & friendly). I would reccomend!

Pain in paradise

The bunkers are terrible and offer no challenge.or risk. The greens are not recovering well as ball marks are everywhere. Staff is good. But it is in a home development and that was nice

Nice Layout, Non existent sand traps

Great layout and design. All of the traps are completely vacant of good sand and are deemed as ground under repair

Disappointed

This place is covered with bunkers and they were all under repair. There was no sand in any of them. Asked a local and apparently they've been that way for about a year.

The greens were in bad shape as well. My local $10 Muni course has better maintenance.

I was expecting more from a course in such a beautiful setting/community.

Rude unfriendly staff and course condition below average...San Juan oaks way better

Staff rude and when brought up to management they did nothing about it besides laugh....the course in bad condition lose a ball when you hit it down the center of the fairway it's so un kept.....bunkers have no sand but yet they have a ton of them just over run by weeds...dont waste your money if they charged a dollar it would be to much.

Evan and his crew make playing Eagle Ridge a treat!

We love playing Eagle Ridge! The course is challenging and fun and sure you might be able to find courses with better conditions (and bunkers) but what makes it special is the outstanding service Evan and his crew provide and making every golfer feel as a treasured guest.

Course is in rough shape

I like Eagle Ridge but the current condition of the course is terrible. 90% of the bunkers are played as "ground under repair" because they are full of weeds and rocks, no sand. The greens were "OK" for the most part but portions of the fairways were in fair to poor condition. The course is difficult enough when its in great shape, very difficult to score on like this. I wouldn't recommend this course right now. I hope they repair it, its a great track when it is pristine shape.

Challenging and not rewarding

The greens are nice but to get on on many holes is difficult to say the least. Covered by trees, bogs, nasty sand traps that do not have sand, but dead plants and weeds. The course needs to be trimmed back to make it a little more golfer non pro friendly.

Great Value!

I am a +20 player and struggle with spending a lot of money to go hack up a course, so I always try to find a round of golf for under $40. That being said, I would spend more than that to play here. Very challenging, but forgiving at the same time. Yeah the bunkers are horrible but hey, just stay away from them! It's not like you're paying what it cost to play Pebble and they're junk. Twilight rate is really good, staff is very friendly. Have been and will continue to come back!

A Formerly Great Golf Course

I have been playing Eagle Ridge for seven or eight years and always considered it one of my favorites. But it has been horribly neglected as of late. Half the bunkers have signs saying under repair and they are filled with weeds. The tee boxes are torn up and weedy. The trails between holes are overgrown with weeds. Why? This is a fantastic course - challenging, long, and in a beautiful setting. But it looks like no one is taking care of it. What a disappointment, I loved this course and always felt it was a treat to get to play there. I played today at 4:30, and there were only a few cars in the parking lot and I only saw one other player on the course. The good news is I played 18 holes in three hours from the pro tees.
