Gopher Golf Course Review - Eagle Ridge - Raleigh, NC

Eagle Ridge Golf Club
Public/Private: Semi-Private
Location: Raleigh, NC
Course Rater: Ben S.
Eagle Ridge Golf Club is a par 71, 6,901 yard course from the back tees. It was designed by 1992 US Open Champion Tom Kite. The course was built on sloping terrain and offers many uneven lies on and off the fairways. It is also surrounded by housing that was part of the course development, because of that there is a fair amount of out-of-bounds. The course has Bermuda fairways and rough throughout as well as Bermuda greens that can play tricky depending on when they are cut and rolled. Cons: There are a few quarky holes, like the 9th and 10th holes that can frustrate you especially if you are playing them for the first time. Some of these holes will penalize you with good shots, which gets aggravating. Pros: Course is maintained well and gives you a country club feel as it is semi-private. Other than the quarky holes, it is a lot of fun to play, Also, it is a 15 min drive from downtown Raleigh. If you are in Raleigh for vacation or a business trip and you want to get a round in, I would recommend this course. You can find tee times on Golf Now for under $50 depending day of the week and time.
