Eagle Ridge Golf Club - Pines Course
The Pines Course is one of three nine-hole courses at Eagle Ridge Golf Club in Lakewood. The Links and the Ridge are the other two. The courses can be played individually or as three different 18-hole combinations. The Pines Course is named after the mature, tree-covered landscape. It and the Ridge Course make up the original layout at Eagle Ridge G.C. They were built over a sand and gravel quarry that was used to help build the Garden State Parkway in the late 40s. The unique and undulating topography is a result of this. The towering pinelands lend a sheltered feel to the course as well as a challenging element to the game. There are also strategically placed bunkers that come into play along the greensides.

Enjoyable to play everytime
Played Pines/Ridge, our favorites. Occasional rain slowed us down a bit but still finished in a little over 4 hours. We always like this venue, primarily due enjoyable holes and friendly staff. The new "pub" facility very well received. If there is anything less than positive to say, I would mention that for golfers that rely on carts, many holes can be cart path only. A very minor negative for an excellent course to visit.
It took some time to get use to the greens on the Pine, I do t get to play that type of grass often. Pines is intimidating with the tightness of the fairways, but enjoyable although recent rains made some mushy areas. The Links 9, was open but challenging due to winds, so in short enjoyable
Played the Ridge and the Links. Starter Dave, cool dude, got me out early and cleaned my clubs after the round. Course was recently Aerated (greens and fairways) and is coming in nicely. Greens were running true for rhis time of year. Kind of hilly would recommend using a cart especially if your playing the links. The Links 9bis about 4 minute cart ride at full speed from the clubhouse. Challenging enough yet can score here. Seems to be always windy here. Def best course in shore area. Highly recommended
The Hem of Ocean County
Played the Ridge- Links. Course in excellent condition considering the miserable winter and spring. Today just happened to be 80 degrees.
Starter Dave really nice guy. Got my foursome out a little early, which we appreciated.
Booked through GolfNow as VIP so enjoyed incredible rate. To think that this course will be gone or reduced greatly in the coming years is so so sad. Feel really bad for people that bought homes and paid a premium for this choice location. Hope things get tied up in the courts so us golfers can continue to enjoy this gem of a course.
Course was in good condition considering the time of year
Cart path only rule is difficult to take particularly on the links course but understandable
Food service was extremely slow
Staff were very nice particularly the starter Jim Kay
Good Value in New Jersey
Drove from NYC to play 18 holes on a nice early Spring day. A bit delayed to tee off due to a frost delay, but with sun out and warmer temps we were't too upset. There are some impressive holes here that will challenge golfers to shape their shots. Nice views from the top once you are on top. With it being mid March the course was in the typical shape you would expect, but all in all in decent shape. We played the Pines and Links course. Our group really enjoyed the more challenging Link course and would definitely play here again.
Well worth the trip
Well worth the trip to come down from morris county, NJ on a day that there was snowcover everywhere north oF I-195. Played the two nines but not Pines, which was closed. I'd imagine pines is like the front 9 I played, but the other 9, Dunes, is a beast unbecoming of itself. Bring lots of balls for this 9. Some of the holes are borderline ridiculous how narrow the fairways are, blind shots, water, hills. but its something you wouldn't expect in plain old Lakewood. Heard from other comments this place may be closing for development, people need to get out and support this place if that is the case .I would've paid $50 for a day I played for nothing cause I had rewards points I used.
This course is outstanding! Best layout in the shore area. The course is in excellent shape from tee to green. The staff is very nice and very accommodating. Couldn’t ask for more.
Great course. Pretty crowded, but to be expected when the temperature hits 60 in February! Best public course around.
Play it while you can
Eagle Ridge is an awesome 27 hole course and is fun and challenging at the same time. Lots of elevation changes and in great condition.
Too bad this course will be shut down to make way for high density housing and shopping center. If you never played here before, go there and play it before it goes away. It’s well worth it.
Even some frozen fairways, greens, and tees, this course rewarded the good shot. It was enjoyable to play here even in the cold. Greens were consistent, fairways very playable. I always love playing here
