South Course

Opened in 1984 and voted one of the top 75 upscale courses in the country, the South Course winds through a beautiful wooded valley where streams come into play on 11 of 18 holes. The signature hole is #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. Although shorter in yardage than our other courses, the South is Eagle Ridge Resort's most difficult and the best test of your accuracy and shot-making skills.

Tournament Reviews

I wanted to follow up with you on our weekend!   We survived the heat and everyone at the resort and golf courses were very accommodating and helpful!  The young lady managing the beverage cart on the South course made sure we were sufficiently hydrated on Saturday even bringing us cold towels to cool down.
