We played Mid Pines, Tobacco Road, Talamore, and this one, and I liked the layout of this one second best (TR).
Greens had just been aerated, and had some other condition issues. They need to bring someone in and spend a few 100k on them. Cuz if they do, they have a championship quality course on their hands.
After the short courses in the Southern Hills, it was a pleasure to see a 200 yard par 3, and several 400 yard par 4s (from the whites).. The par 5s had the perfect mix of risk/reward. One was target golf, which you never see outside of desert courses.
Maybe 2 or 3 flat holes on the course. Would love to play it in its full glory.
Would definitely play again
We played Eagle Ridge when it first opened and didn't like it at all. We decided to give it another try and I have to say the course is excellent for a public course. Newer golf carts, nice bar/restaurant, fairways in great condition. Unfortunately, the greens had recently been aerated (wish I'd have known) so the putting was difficult. But got a very good hot deal through Golf Now, so for $36, I was satisfied. Would definitely play this course again. All courses in this area are suffering due to lack of rain and heat, even private courses, so I wouldn't complain about some bare spots on the greens and fairways.
I just wish golf now would have told us that they punched and sanded the greens prior to purchase.
They have improved the greens!!
Fun course, some challengo shots, some wide open fairways, and they have made huge progress with the greens, definitely going back!!
First time playing Eagle Ridge. The conditions were tough because it was extremely dry, unless you hit a good spot on the greens it was rolling off. The grass is still trying to grow this time of year so the brown spots are expected. But overall the course is very challenging yet forgiving. There's a lot of elevation changes and mounds throughout the course which made it interesting. The 6 par 3's are unique in their own way. I'll be back sometime soon.
Nice course, worth the trip to play
Enjoyed the round. Overall it's a good course with a couple of holes with odd layouts. We played in spring so they grass hadn't quite come in full yet, so tight lies. But it's a nice course with excellent staff that I will play again.
Good course that needs a few things
With the weather having been not so favorable these past few months in NC it isn't fair to say a course is in less than perfect shape. A few things this course needs though - a layout of the holes on the scorecards, same thing at tee boxes and better markings for distances (especially distances to water hazards). I hit a perfect tee shot on a 417 yard hole only to find myself in a pond (#18). Same thing happened on a par 5 earlier in the round. Was playing with three seniors that were playing their tees and all three of them hit into hazard on 18 with 3 woods! Just think a simple "XXX Yards To Hazard" would help tremendously! Course has very tricky greens that I suspect get even tougher once the weather gets everything in full flight.
This course can be tough. Challlenging and fast greens. Enjoyed it
Fantastic conditions, great staff, very friendly. Course has fast greens and greening up nicely.
fred smith needs to pay attention to this course
they've got great greens but the carts are horrible, drink machine on course didn't work. no water in coolers.
Fun course with some challenging holes
Always enjoy playing Eagle Ridge, but it is time they upgrade their carts. Last couple of times I played the batteries run down before I get 18 holes in. Some of their windshields are missing the top half and can be somewhat cold on these chilly days. Staff is always great and would highly recommend.
Great course and staff. Only shortfall is carts. Barely made it back to clubhouse and saw another cart disabled on course. However, greens in great shape as are fairways.
Par 5s are very well designed. Tough finishing holes. Greens are tricky and quick.
Greens In great condition. Love the layout. Will play here a lot. Great value for the money.
Great conditions, terrible golf carts
Our group really enjoyed the course. New mini Verdi greens are a vast improvement. The golf carts are falling apart and way over due for an upgrade.
