About

Holes 18
Type Resort
Par 72
Length 6762 yards
Slope 140
Rating 73.7

Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa boasts three championship courses as well as a nine-hole course. The South, North, and the General are the three championship courses. Of the three, the General is the most well known for its challenging layout but the South and the North manage to stand out on their own. The South Course was carefully carved from a heavily forested valley that is divided by a stream, which comes into play on 11 holes. Although the golf course is seemingly straightforward, there are some challenges that sneak up on you. The first few holes are framed by mature oaks and walnut trees that make accuracy a necessity. The back nine is even more picturesque than the scenic front nine with the meandering stream appearing on several holes and rocky outcroppings dotting the landscape.

Most enjoyable Eagle Ridge course

I was on a guys' golf trip using a stay and play package. I would play the South Course again in a heartbeat. On many holes you can miss on one side of the fairway and still be able to find it, unlike the General. The holes have character and I didn't mind a few quirky ones. There are holes where you can relax and not be stressed about missing the fairway by 5 yards and losing yet another ball, as at the General. The North Course was a good track and my second favorite of the 3. The greens slope quite a bit.

Eagle Ridge Resort (South)

The Good: Fun, sporty track is the second course built at the Eagle Ridge Resort. Roger Packard routing meanders through woods and over creeks that makes the course very tight off the tee. Some great risk-reward Par 5's, nice variety in Par 3's and a great closing hole. Very nice course conditions and receptive greens that putt well. Nice clubhouse and very friendly staff will make the experience enjoyable. Good value if you are a guest at the resort.

The Bad: Greens can be a little on the slow side compared to the other courses. Lack of driving range is a big minus. No GPS and not many yardage markers. The Par 5 16th is tricked up. Overpriced at $115 for public play.

The Verdict: The South course is no "ugly duckling" to The General and the original North. A very enjoyable golfing experience if you like target golf.

Best Hole: The closing, downhill Par 4 can erase a great round or give you a great topic of discussion at the 19th hole.

The course was in very good shape. A little wet because it had rained.

The south course winds thru valleys with wide fairways and reasonably large greens. The greens and fairways were in good shape for being aerated recently. The houses along the fairways blend in nicely with the landscape. Difficulty of the course is average if you play the tees suited for your game. Playing back tees make the course difficult.

Course needs drastic attention.

Course needs attention. Greens are way too soft and entire course has gone to the dogs since I first played it 20 years ago. For $75 its a rip off.

Great!

Played on a Thursday morning for only $35 with cart. Course is fantastic! Only thing that is odd is that they still don't have gps in the carts. Wasn't a deal breaker. In a way it is kinda nice. Reminds me of the good old days of golf.
