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 ;).

Great course and atmosphere

We have played Eagle Ridge several times now. The staff is extremely friendly. We love the layout. It is difficult for higher handicaps but still fair. Can’t wait to go back!

Course was in great shape. The greens were areiated a week ago so a bit slow but thats to be expected. Fairways still dormant Bermuda but very nice to hit off of. Bunkers are a bit rough but the grounds crew were working on them that day to get them ready for play. The staff as always are the best in the nation. Tella at the pro shop takes care of her golfers and is such an asset.

The most scenic course you will ever play!

When you play this course. You will say WOW! THIS IS AMAZING. The only BIG knock on this course is the traps are so bad they are unplayable. It has been that way for over 10 years.

Course needs mowed

It was like playing a US Open course. We were losing balls in the rough. I didn’t realize pros were coming here to practice for the Open.

Challenging but fun course to play

Like playing on a dart board. Couldn’t just walk up to the tee and bomb one, had to plan out your shots carefully. A tip sheet was given at the clubhouse which helped for first time players of the course like us. Great fairways and greens were good too, looking forward to going back.

Not my favorite course.

I got a fantastic on line deal to play this course so it was a good value for the money. Staff and clubhouse were A-1. Overall course was in good shape with a few dead areas which can be expected with Bermuda grass in this area.
This is not a course for your average hacker. Very little forgiveness if you aren’t in the fairways. They give you a cheat sheet to help play the course. I obviously played from the wrong tees because I rarely was in the positions that the cheat sheet recommended thus making second shots more difficult. I will credit my abilities or lack of for a lot of my issues but it isn’t the type course that I would recommend to many of my friends or will go back until I have improved my gamer.
I will say that they did a good job building the course without disturbing Mother Nature. Enjoyed the scenery and wildlife throughout the course.

Target golf

Thoroughly enjoyed my second time on this course. First time rainy wet and miserable not the best time to play a course for the first time. This time dry and course was in good shape and dry. Had a lot of fun greens rolled well but definitely have to keep fairly straight because easily OB if to far right or left

Eagle Ridge

Eagle Ridge is a challenging, yet fun course. The surroundings are beautiful and the course is well maintained like other KY state parks courses I've played. The staff is friendly and helpful. We were greeted as we exited the car with the delivery of our cart!

Great views.l and wide fairways

It’s the hilliest course I’ve ever played. It was absolutely gorgeous and we felt very welcome. It might be tough for a high handicapper but the fairways are very wide. The greens had been topdressed recently but were almost back. We can’t wait to go back.
