Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa (General course)

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1997

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.

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with five wins out of her last five starts on the LPGA Tour. Winning the Chevron Championship also brought the second major championship win of her career.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda's five wins in five starts, when he placed second at the Houston Open. Either side of that, he won The Arnold Palmer, The Players, and then The Masters and The Heritage.
