THE RIDGE AT EAGLE CREST
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, the Ridge at Eagle Crest (this one), the Challenge Executive Course, and the Putting course.  The Ridge course is the signature course of the Eagle Crest Resort, and as such, is also the most expensive of the courses.  The course undulates throughout, and offers several interesting strategic decisions.

EAGLE RIDGE GOLF COURSE - OUR COMMENTS

Maintenance:  The fairways and bunkers, and even the rough were consistently near-perfect, deep soft turf with well cut greens.  We have only played the front nine on this course, but we couldn't find a flaw in these items.  There were some thin and browning spots on the tee boxes and on several of the hills surrounding the fairways, however - not much, but enough to keep it from the perfect 10 in this category.

Scenery: The course is lined throughout with condominiums, chalets, and private homes, but they aren't obtrusive - in fact, they're set far enough back that you don't notice them most of the time.  The typical Central Oregon sagebrush and tumbleweeds and dirt surround the course which isn't too exciting, but there are some nice views of the surrounding plateaus and buttes.  It didn't have the mountain views, at least on the front nine, that the Resort Course offered, but they had made it quite nice with plentiful trees and shrubs.

Fun: We really enjoyed this course despite an almost total lack of water hazards on the front nine.  There were a few holes you had to lay up with interesting dog legs, and also a few holes where the fairways were narrow and the bunkers were numerous.  The undulating fairways and greens added a nice touch too. 

Safety: The course is cut through the Eagle Ridge development, and you almost never see another golfer except those who are playing immediately ahead or behind you.  We never saw opportunities to be ducking golf balls, or getting run over by cars.  Quite well thought out in this respect, we thought.

Staff:  The entire staff was very friendly and pleasant from the Marshall to the pro shop staff to the snack bar.  Even the lady on the Reservations line was nice to us.  We were quite pleased with this part of the round.

Design: The design of the course was nice, if not world-class.  There was a lot of variety in the terrain and in the holes - lots of bunkers and even quite a few trees to keep things interesting.  The paths were well laid out and the course was well signed - we didn't find ourselves getting lost at all.

Value:  This course, like the others at Eagle Crest is overpriced, in our opinion, but it is at the resort, I suppose, so this is to be expected.  The rates this year now include a cart and use of the driving range, so the value has increased over last year for sure.

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 is better than the Resort Course, in our opinion, though both were fun.  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.
