The bunkers have been the worst I've seen in the north bay area, They say their working on them.

It was a mud hole, raining, behind a tournament, 3 hours to play 9 holes, not fun.

I played here many times since the course was opened. I actually played with Johnny Miller when he opened the course and 19 years ago and he would be ashamed that his name is associated with a course in this type of condition. Granted it rained the day before but I’ve played enough golf in my life time to know when a course is properly maintained during the rainy season. I was warned before playing this course about how bad the conduit was that it was in but I could not believe how bad it actually was. Almost every buncker was deemed ground under repair you could tell that the fairways had not been sanded to soak up the moisture in some time driving range was mats only carts don’t have GPS and good luck finding a sprinkler head for yardage. I have a soft spot for this course because I played with Johnny but unfortunately I will not be going back. Plenty of other courses in the South Bay to get you money’s worth....RIP Eagle Ridge...RIP

It is a very tough course. The greens are fast and have many subtle breaks. It is fun to play despite the difficulty. The views are great. The course layout is interesting. The greens and fairways are in great condition.

It’s a fun course with a lot of character and some great views. Good price, but when I played the course it was pretty wet, so it was cartpath only.

When the bunkers are fixed and the weather is nice it will be one of the best public courses in the area.

Eagle Ridge is always in great shape, the staff is nice, greens are very fast and we'll maintained. They are working on some of the bunkers so expect some maintenance issues there. Overall it's a great course that I would recommend to anyone wanting a real challenge. (Not for the beginning golfer, this is a lot of golf course!)

This used to be one of the best conditioned courses in the valley. Not anymore. The bunkers are a complete mess. The tee boxes are wet, wavy and need to be mowed. It was almost like teeing off out of wet rough. Some of the fairways are getting patchy and have many areas with weeds. The greens were in decent shape and rolled pretty good but overall the conditions were pretty shabby. Not sure what's going on here but a once great track is slowly turning into a neglected dog track. Sad to see.

WOW I was actually shooting like a pro almost every shot it was amazing and so great when I struck the ball and how straight ,long and far it went and this happened in every part of my game ! Each shot was amazing. At first I started slow and was held up by 4 foursomes but by the sixth hole I broke free of them by them letting me play through. I them got 9 pars and 1 birdie through 6 -18th hole

It had been a year since I played here and I was not disappointed. The greens were in excellent condition and the rest of the course (tees, fairways and rough) in very good condition. This is a challenging layout though not unfair if you place your shots strategically. The clubhouse and maintenance of the premises are very well managed.

Take a drive - it is at the top of the list for Santa Clara County golf courses.

The course layout was very fun, with interesting holes that never felt repetitive. There was a good mix of challenging holes and some shorter scoreable holes. You still have to make good shots as the greens are challenging with multiple tiers but in great condition. Approach shots are key. Pace of play was pretty standard for a busy Saturday. My only complaint were the course conditions, too many holes with muddy, soggy fairways that ate clubs on contact. The bunkers are being played as ground under repair as they replace the sand so I give them a pass on those conditions. This course would be much more difficult with in-play bunkers.
