Eagle Ridge rewards precise play

Posted May 24, 2013

Course: Eagle Ridge in Raleigh

Play: I had a chance to get back to Eagle Ridge in Raleigh recently, for the first time in a long time. I played it on the only day their range is closed, so the first few holes were interesting.

One of the more interesting holes in my opinion, is the par-5 10th. Talk about throwing darts. If you’re good at distance control, you’ll love it.

The closing hole is a challenging one: A par 4 with water in front of the green. I found the rough off the tee, so it wasn’t pretty getting to the green. 

Worth Noting: The fairways are still coming in, but the greens were in decent shape. It’s a beautiful course, with a lot of elevation changes. All in all, a nice golf course that will test you.

    This USED to be a great course. Now with the new management it has steadily gone downhill!! Course has many spots that need attention. Tee boxes are bad, fairways with dead spots. People in the pro shop just want your money!! Don't care what happens to you once the money is in the register!!!! Played there during the week and had a 5 1/2 hour round of golf!!OUCH!!! Called the pro shop from the course and they couldn't send anyone out there to move this terribly slow four some along????? There are 6 "count em" 6 par threes on the course. So if you like to hit the driver this is not the course for you. Those are the holes that back people up. On the back nine every other hole is a par 3. until the last 4 holes.

    Um, I'm really not trying to be a haterjerk. Gerald Owens seems like a nice guy. But this is a thorough analysis of a golf course? I'm not sure what to make of this.
