The Golf Guide to the Top Courses
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.

The highly rated General is a championship golf course that ranks with some of the best in Illinois. This tree-lined and open parkland layout provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. Low handicap players can test their skills from the 5-star General tees, while those newer to the game may settle for the 2- or 1-star General tees. There is 250-feet of elevation change throughout the course, with spectacular views of three states: Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin. The signature hole is the par-4 14th, with 180-feet of elevation change from tee to green.

The also highly regarded North course is the only course on the property that gives the opportunity for a panoramic view of Lake Galena. The signature hole is the 165-yard 8th, a downhill par-3 with 80 feet of elevation change from tee to green. The tee shot crosses the corner of Lake Galena, offers a spectacular view of the lake and its abundant rock outcroppings.

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.

Did you know?

Eagle Ridge's "The General" course takes its name from the fact that Ulysses S. Grant (Commanding General of the Union Army during the American Civil War, and 18th President of the United States) lived in nearby Galena in 1860-61 and again from 1865-69.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.
