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.
