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.

Eagle Ridge was a very nice surprise. As expected, the Jack Nicklaus course design requires shot making...there's plenty of trouble on this course for any errant shot. They are reworking the bunkers which will take about a year to complete (they're played as GUR) ....The tee boxes and greens were in great shape. Tee it up and enjoy....

Pretty brutal day out on this golf course. I remember 10 years ago this was one of the nicest courses in the area. Now it's in very mediocre shape. The tee boxes were quite furry. Fairways and greens were in decent shape. The bunkers were a mess. So bad that the pro shop told us it's best not to play out of them and just take a free drop where you entered the bunker. They are apparently taking out more bunkers(they've done this before) and are reshaping the remaining bunkers. When I asked why they said it costs too much to maintain the bunkers. Couple this with the fact that I used to pay well over $100 to play this course on a weekend/holiday and it leads me to believe that this course is struggling mightily. They've completely abandoned the Johnny Miller design and consistently make the course worse. I think they hope these changes are going to help business but it's only going to hurt. There is a good chance this is the last round I ever play at Eagle Ridge and I'm fully expecting the course to shut down and become houses in short order. Sad to see what has happened to a once beautiful golf course and facility.

Outside of the course the first golf cart were given had a nail in the tire and the tire went flat. Had to swap it out at the turn. We hit the turn at 12:30pm and the girl running the snack bar didn't even have the grill going yet on a holiday!!! She fired it up and then proceeded to serve us lukewarm polish sausages that were still cold in the center. Our experience should serve as an absolute embarrassment to the management team as I'm sure they will be losing their jobs soon anyways.

A perfect weather to play. First ever start on the back nine due to several corporate outings which made for a slower pace of play. Stay away from the bunkers because they are in terrible shape. The wind was blowing right which allowed me to make the greens in regulation on most holes. The greens were in good shape. Some kind of event at the clubhouse which made the place busy. Nicely designed course with plenty of challenge for the intermediate golfer.

It’s a good course, not what it use to be. When the traps are in good shape they influence the entire round. Now they don’t. It was a lot harder to get out of when they had “real” sand in them. Now they are empty holes in the ground with hard pan.

Greens are in great shape. Course is also well tended to. Value there at $33 a round. Only one problem — the sand traps are cement. Been in disrepair for years. It is imperative the course invest some money and add sand.

Like the lay outs. There are some area being repaired (fairways). The greens are slow because of aerification but no more sand. A couple more weeks should be perfect. We will come back again.

Great course. Very fun. Only problem was the sand. It is absolutely unacceptable for the bunkers to be in the condition they were in. It’s even more confusing because the rest of the course was wonderfully maintained.

Not in ad good condition as it was last year! Bunker are under repair and rough is not as well kept up as last year. Fairways and greens are good but greens were just sanded so let’s see how they respond? I still like the course but the bunkers need to be addressed soon?

A little disappointed there was no notification of the greens being aerated. Wouldn't be that big of a deal for the price we paid except, the enormous amount of sand on the greens. The sand traps have no sand and looks like they just gave up on any maintenance of the bunkers.

Booked a Friday noon time hotdeal for me and a buddy. 3 days of rain kept the crowds away, but didn't spoil the course too bad. The greens rolled well, and fairways were passable. My ONLY complaint is that about half of the bunkers were completely full of water. Now, of course lots of rain will make it hard to keep them pristine, but this is not a flat course and it has several creeks running through it. I feel that if you are going to have deep bunkers, you should add enough drainage to keep the puddles small. As is, if your shot went into the bunker, it was lost.

Again though, this is my only complaint, otherwise we had a great day. We'll be back
