EAGLE CREST GOLF COURSE
REDMOND, OR


 

Eagle Crest is a major resort just west of Redmond in the golf wonderland of Central Oregon.  There are four courses at Eagle Crest - the Eagle Crest Resort Course (this one), the Ridge Course, the Challenge, and the Putting course.  The resort course has a mostly open front 9 followed by a much narrower and more scenic back 9.  A very large pond in the middle of the course and the looming Mt. Jefferson and Mt. Hood provide a lovely setting to spend a day.

EAGLE CREST GOLF COURSE - OUR COMMENTS

Maintenance:  Beautifully maintained, as you'd expect from a resort course.  The greens and bunkers were in excellent shape and in late summer there was hardly a spot of brown on the fairways.  The areas around the ponds were nicely kept too.

Scenery: The front nine is pretty open with the major scenic items being the beautiful large pond filled with geese and the awesome signature hole #2 where you're teeing off from 80 feet above the canyon floor.  The canyon is cool just in itself!  There's also the signature Central Oregon views of the Cascade Snowpeaks to the West and the contrast between the high desert plateaus and the green of the golf courses.  The back 9 is a little more scenic overall, with tight, private fairways - you don't see another golfer until about the 15th hole.  The problem with the front 9 is that you see every other golfer all over the course - it's big and open.

Fun: The Par-5 second hole is fun, the tough bunkers are great.  The water hazards are more scenic attractions than real hazards - you have to be pretty bad to lose too many balls in the water.  The greens can be tough here, but the fairways are mostly pretty straight, though there is quite a bit of relief - especially on the back 9 to keep things interesting.

Safety: On the back 9, you have to worry a lot more about hitting people's houses or losing your ball in the outback lining the fairways than getting hit.  There is one resort road to cross - no big deal - and even on the front 9, the fairways are spread out enough to keep you safe from flying objects.  Hole #2 can be a bit hazardous when it's raining.

Staff:  The guy we talked to at the clubhouse was very nice - he let us play the back 9 when we asked, let us keep playing after twilight, and the marshall was very pleasant to us.

Design: This is a very well designed course, except that we would have liked some more trees and variety to the front nine.  The pond and canyon areas are great, and we really like the back 9, but the big open area is a little too big and open for our taste - would have been nice, too, to not see the hotel right up against the course - people sitting on their porches talking to you while you're teeing off of the 17th hole.

Value:  Sixty bucks for a round? Don't think so.  Owners prices are almost realistic.  We're owners, so we paid $23 for nine which was still more than we think it should be, but you have to consider it's a resort so everything is inflated, and it's in Golf Digest's 11th best golf destination in the Continental U.S., so you have to pay for the distinction, I suppose.

Other Comments:  The sun shines here 300 days a year - what more can you ask for.  Playing in early spring is the best - when the snow is still on the Cascade Mountains, and the sunrise is reflecting off the morning dew  - simply breathtaking.   This course plays shorter than the Ridge course, and is also less expensive.  Don't miss the fun little putting course or the really challenging mid-iron course that is more expensive to play at than either full course.
