Eagle Ridge Inn & Resort -General, is a Resort, 63 hole golf facility located in Galena, Illinois. Eagle Ridge Resort has three 18-hole courses and one 9-hole course for a total of 63 holes. The 18 hole courses are The General Golf Course, The North Course, and The South Course. The 9-hole course is The East Course.
The South Course at Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa opened in 1984. The course was designed by Roger Packard.
In 1996, The South Course was voted one of the top 75 upscale courses in the country. As it compares to the North Course, the South Course winds through a beautiful wooded valley where streams come into play on 11 of the 18 holes. The signature hole on the South is hole #18, a 406-yard par 4 with the tee set 90 feet above a landing area which is guarded by lakes on both sides and a stream that crosses the fairway 265 yards from the tee. The second shot plays uphill to a well-bunkered elevated green. The South Clubhouse is the backdrop to this hole.
On the scorecard, the South may be shorter in yardage, but is by far the most difficult course on the property. If you want to test your accuracy and shot making skills, the South Course is for you.
