Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa (South course)


4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.
   Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa (South course) Est. 1984

Where2Golf says: 

Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa is home to three 18-hole championship courses (the General, North and South) and the 9-hole East course. At this Stay & Play facility, you can rise from your bed in the morning and head straight for the first tee on any of Eagle Ridge's four courses.

The General course is the highest rated of the layouts, while the North and South courses are also well-rated and always popular golf courses. These tree-lined and open parkland layouts should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Plenty of golfing challenge, well-crafted designs and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of the North and South layouts. Worth including on your play list along with the more renowned General.

Did you know?

Eagle Ridge was developed as a purpose-built resort and low-density residential development in the 6,800-acre Galena Territory in northwest Illinois. Land acquisition began in 1970 and ground was broken for the first Information Center/Real Estate office in 1973. Construction of Lake Galena began in the spring of 1974. The lake covers 220 acres, has an average depth of 25 feet and a maximum depth of 55 feet. It was expected to take 18 months to fill the lake, but it took just seven weeks because of the unusual heavy snow during the winter of 1974-75.
