Eagle Ridge Golf Course is completely Under Repair

Temporary Greens on at least 2 holes, All Bunkers are Under Repair, many sections of the Fairways are barren and dry. There are also many wet spots. I would not recommend playing here unless they significantly reduce the Rates. GolfNow should identify these conditions on their website.

Never again

I've played Eagle Ridge before and knew it would be a challenge. It's always hot in Gilroy in the summer and early fall and the course is relatively long, with a lot of forced carries. I don't like the way the course snakes its way through the gated community, but there are enough wooded holes to make it bearable. What I wasn't expecting was for the course to be under construction. It wasn't disclosed when I booked the round and the work was invasive. The 3rd hole had a temporary "green" that was just a circle painted on the grass. The sand traps on all but 2 holes were treated as ground under repair (beneficial to your score, perhaps, but traps are part of the game). A construction worker walked behind me during my backswing on 4, prompting a shank (yes, it's ultimately my fault, but still annoying). The bathroom in the club house was filthy. The piece de resistance was that they shook you down for an extra $10 for an individual cart, which is standard issue during Covid. Bottom line is that I'll never play this course again. Cinnabar and San Juan Oaks give you similar terrain and a much better overall experience if you're looking for golf in the Gilroy/Hollister area.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are sorry to see that your overall experience was anything short of 5 stars. We have begun our renovation project to recover the sand traps and we work hard to keep the rest of the course excellent shape. Our maintenance crew is constantly working to improve the conditions every day. We hope you'll bear with us through this transition and give us another try in the near future. This project is years in the works and we are thrilled for what is to come. We truly apologize that it was burdensome during your round. We appreciate your feedback on the temp greens and wanted to let you know we have implemented a warning in the tee time notes when booking online and are striving to make all golfers aware in the shop. Thanks for choosing Eagle Ridge Golf Club.

A hidden gem.

Almost every hole offers various risk/reward choices. The par 5s require careful placement off the tee to set up the second shot through narrow tree openings. The par 3s are varied, visually appealing, and challenging. I really enjoyed it..

Great track but in poor shape

I love the layout and design of this course. However, there is substantial maintenance taking place at this time. There were two temporary greens and they were largely unusable. The bunkers must be played as ground under repair. And many of the greens have significant scarring. With some love and time, this course will be one of the best in the area.

Several holes under construction. BEWARE

I have always enjoyed this course. I believe that this renovation will be awesome. It looks like they are making very good changes. However. They did not have the decency to pre-warn us that 3 straight holes are under construction. One is straight up closed. One is a crummy temp green par 3. And then the par 5 is broken into a short par 4, and a par 3. Add in the problem they have with their sprinkler system and this course is probably a skip for now. Sorry Eagle Ridge, you will have my business in the future, but you really upset me by not warning your patrons ahead of time

They are trying!

Course is getting a makeover right now. First few holes are being worked on so a couple temp greens are being used. Plan is to continue a couple holes at a time for the next few months. Still worth a Golf Now deal.

They have 1hole closed & 2 others modified . One of the strangest things was the pro shop wanted to charge for a cart . That was inappropriate & he put us on a cart together . Reluctant to go back there. I’ve played there often enough to have. More respect than was given

In the days of a pandemic, the course has no business charging extra for single rider cart use.

To many Temp Greens

The golf course should have notified the players in advance or when booking that there would be a few temp greens (shorten) and hole number 2 was completely closed. I would have cancelled my reservation .

Honest Opinion

Sand traps are in bad shape. Under Covid 19 all courses offer a cart per player. We were offered two for 4 and we had to purchase extra carts .greens were also uneven with dirt patches affecting putts.
