The 9th at Eagle Crest Challenge course. This is a long 120 from the White's and 15 short is way worse than 15 long. Photo submitted by Jemayer230 on 11/26/2012
There are benches on this course for good reason. Photo submitted by Jemayer230 on 10/20/2012

Very playable and enjoyable.
Recently plugged greens made this a challenge but course was in fine condition for early spring in Central Oregon. Had not played in five years and some vistas were improved, some waste areas have been eliminated and playability enhanced. We'll be going back more frequently.
It was a fun course to play. I would play it again. It is in a very scenic location.
The course was not too long and not too short. The greens were neither the toughest or easiest I have played. The greens had been aerated recently so I had to hit my putts a lot harder to get them to the pin than normal. Their aeration technique worked fine though because the ball didnt bounce around a lot. The sand in the traps is fairly fine. I was concerned at first that the wedge wouldnt cut through the sand well but I found the sand to play much better than I expected it to. Staff was professional. The starter was knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. The conditions overall were good and I had an enjoyable round of golf.
Fun course that had some interesting challenging holes.
We had a great time. Course was different than many courses in Central Oregon.
Just coming out of winter so just a little rough around the edges.
The course, during summer is usually kept up very well. It is well maintained for the amount of play it gets. Great layout for an executive course.
This course is a good test on all the par 3's and some challanging par 4's
Course was in good early season shape. The greens are coming back from winter conditions and fairways are beginning to green up.
Great course, Staff was OK
The staff argued with another customer and I about the included range balls. It was not noted on our GN receipts. Finally a lady came up, said we were right. We got our range balls and a great round.
Can't wait to play it again in the spring.
Weather forecast was 50+ degrees for golf on Tuesday. Unfortunately a cold front appeared and we only had a high of 34 degrees. Despite the cold, I played my best round on this course. I'm a beginner golfer so this course is challenging for me and a good short-game course for my boyfriend who is a 14 handicap. Can't wait to play this course again in the spring.
Love the Challenge Course at Eagle Crest
Pretty sure that I've reviewed this one before; we play it several times per year. It's a Par 63, about 4,000 yards from the Whites with a nice selection of 3's and 4's. Nothing scary, it's a great course to take a fledgling golfer who may not be ready for prime-time. You need to be relatively accurate as some of the fairways are lined with trouble but if you can pin the ball in a spot 60 to 80 yards wide, you're golden. Most of the Par 4's truly are but 17 and 18 (238 and 217 yards, respectively) are reachable for a solid player. 5 and 14 are the only holes with water definitely in play. You may find it helpful to take an extra club on 14 if the wind is moving at all - it tends to come down the hill to the green (towards you) but spills off to the sides before reaching the tee box because of the landscape. Check the flag closely before you tee off. Pace of play is usually really good, we finished this round in just under 3 hours (walking) and probably would have been 15-20 minutes faster except we had to wait for the threesome in front of us on most of the last 6 holes.
I enjoy the course every time I play.
This is a great course that is usually well maintained. The staff is friendly and the pros do a great job in teaching.
A beautiful day in November and the course was in pristine condition.
Great value, good practice
Played early November and we were the only 2 on the course. Although a shorter course, with par 62, still plenty of challenge and fun. Even though it is among homes, there is enough variety in the terrain and strategic placement of homes that it doesn't feel like a cookie cutter, housing development course.
Generous Fairways and Greens
I find the Ridge Course to be incredibly fair. If you've brought a decent swing to the course, you will be handsomely rewarded. Fairways and greens are quite large so even little left or right "squirts" aren't overly penalized.
Greens were in good shape, but very slow on a warm day in November. Missed 3 putts due to shortness on the way to a 79 with three birdies (4, 10 and 12).
Beautiful views and a good amount of elevation change make the Ridge Course a much better track than the Resort Course. If you're in for a real challenge to your game, try the shorter Challenge Course. It is deceptively difficult and will eat your lunch unless you've brought a great swing.
The course can be more difficult tahn you might expect.
The course was in great condition. The greens were fairly fast and smooth. We were able to play in short sleeve golf shirts at the end of November. Typical Central Oregon weather!
This is a great course... but....
The Ridge Course at Eagle Crest Resort is a very nice course and a good challenge for the average golfer.
However, it's a pretty long course to not have water available at some of the tee boxes and, unless you walk a lot of the time, this one might be a cart course as there is a lot of elevation change. We walked the course on a 70+ degree day and at a pretty good pace (Tee off at 1:45 and finish at 5:25) and the lack of coolers to refill the water bottle was irritating.
In season (and probably on weekends) there is a beverage cart but apparently not on a Thursday afternoon in October. There are restrooms so refilling in the bathroom sink is an option.
Value is a pretty subjective criteria - the 'hot deal' we got was a great value; at normal rates it's a pretty average value. There are less expensive courses in the area that we enjoy playing at least as much as this one.
Very good venue
Fast & true greens
Good pace of play
This course was in excellent condition.
This was definitely a great value for the money. The course was in excellent shape and we were able to complete the round in 4 hours.
Our initial look at this course suggested narrow fairways and overall a difficult play. However, we found it to be very playable for a mid-teens index golfer and novice spouse. The conditions were excellent, and everyone was very pleasant. A Great value for the money on this early fall afternoon.
Challenge is the right word
Lush and tough. Best looking and toughest playing "short" course I've ever played.
Was called Mid-Iron, changed to Challenge!! Right name
LOVE TO PLAY THIS COURSE! We walk it
And this gives us GOOD excercise!! Price is
Great with golfnow! Thank you!
Great value through Golfnow.com!
This course is fun! Although a 'short' course it is not an easy walk as I prefer to do. Most folks would take a cart. The par threes are long and challenging. The par fours are short but you can take out the driver on them to try for a birdie. Wonderful views of Central Oregon on several holes. Play this course if you get the chance!
