The Courses At Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa

The General


Eagle Ridge’s crowning achievement, The General opened to rave reviews in 1997 and consistently ranks among Golf Digest top 100 courses. With a 250-foot elevation change from the first hole to the 18th, it boasts spectacular views of the tri-state area. The signature hole is #14, a par 4 with 180 feet of elevation change from tee to green. 

The North Course


Opened in 1977, the North Course is characterized by elevated tee boxes and stunning views of Lake Galena and the surrounding countryside. The signature hole is #8, which is a 165-yard par 3 with 80 feet of elevation change from tee to green. The tee shot on #8 crosses the corner of Lake Galena, opening up to a spectacular view of the lake and its majestic rock outcroppings.

The South Course


Opened in 1984 and voted one of the top 75 upscale courses in the country, the South Course winds through a beautiful wooded valley where streams come into play on 11 of 18 holes. The signature hole is #18, a 406-yard par 4 with the tee set 90 feet above a landing area which is guarded by lakes on both sides and a stream that crosses the fairway 265 yards from the tee. The second shot plays uphill to a well-bunkered elevated green. Although shorter in yardage than our other courses, the South is Eagle Ridge Resort’s most difficult and the best test of your accuracy and shot-making skills.

The East Course


This 9-hole, par-34 layout is ideal for beginners, juniors and for those looking to play 9-holes through undulating greens and beautiful rock outcroppings. The signature hole is #3, a short, tight par 4 with a stream running up the left and a 30-foot rock wall along the right. The hole plays 290 yards through a quiet, secluded valley.
