Round at eagle ridge

Great course!! Beautiful fairways and greens. Can’t beat the price.
Without question the hardest course I’ve played in East Kentucky . Every shot is an absolute challenge from the back tees. Everyone needs to play this course it’s quite the experience and for 29 dollars it’s a steal.

Great Experience!

This is my favorite course in this area! It is so well kept and very challenging. It is managed so well and staff is great. The course was wet in spots and cart path only, but not bad for having a couple inches of rain in the previous 2 days. Always a pleasant experience! Highly recommended!

Awesome course!

If you want a challenge come here. This course makes you hit accurate shots or you will be taking out another ball. This was my 1st time playing this course but my golfing friends and I will be back. The fairways and greens were in good to excellent shape. 5 sets of tee boxes to choose from. If you love golf and nature this is a must play course.

Excellent but Difficult

The quality of this course is superb. The fairways and greens are extremely well kept. The staff is beyond friendly. The views are second to none. The only issue with this course is that it is brutally difficult. However, this can be fun. I suggest you bring plenty of balls. When you think you have enough, bring 30 more.

Ball eater

First the good...the course is in great shape. The staff is wonderful. Fairways and greens are in perfect condition. This course is as difficult as any I've ever played. Mountain course that is very unforgiving. This course will walk you to death. The distance and hills between the tee boxes and greens are billy goat territory. bring plenty of balls. Lots of blind shots, and forced carries. Make sure you play the correct set of tees for your skill level. Fairways slope towards 4-5 foot tall weeds and down the mountains. A placement course at its best. Bring your "A" game, or you'll be in for a long day.

Best Mountain Course I have ever played

Although in the Kentucky foothills, this course has a mountain style layout. An amazing course and on every tee off was marveled by the beauty of the hole. You cannot walk this course, distance between some tees considerable and elevation changes are dramatic. It is a shot placement course but very fair and not "mickey mouse" like some hill/mountain courses can be. A truly legit test and great layout. Well worth it! The bunkers do need repair but I have heard Kentucky State parks is spending $12,000 per bunker to upgrade.

Great mountain course!

Great place to spend a Saturday afternoon!

Be ready to play all 18 holes without a clubhouse visit. The holes do not loop back to the house.

Normally they have coolers out every 3 holes or so, this time they didn’t. Probably because they just finished an aireration project. Also the fountains were out, no big worries though.

Course was very fun and time just flew, needed a little more green work, again under construction and the time of year.

Staff is SUPER friendly every time I go and they offered me a tip sheet. Went with my brother father and fiancé.

Beware of turkeys on the 8th hole green ;).

nice change of pace

I enjoy the quiet setting of this course. It is off the beaten path. Takes a little effort to get there but worth the time. Nice course and not very busy.
