This course definitely stands out among the Eagle Ridge courses. The scenery is incredible, and the course itself is challenging without being impossible to score well on. There are a couple of gimmick holes, but overall a very nice course. When purchased with a package, the rates are very reasonable.

Played the General as a fousome on the 12th of Sept. Worst experience of my life due to being hovered over by Ranger 7 times in 18 holes. He told us "we must keep pace". This was absolutely silly as there was NO ONE even behind us!!! We spent over $600 between 4 and I personnally played a course in Clinton IN that was nicer for $40!

Wow! We just played this course Monday. We stayed at Eagle Ridge and played Sunday on the South course. We had a great time and shot within our range of score. Then we hit The General. The scenery was fantastic, although it was hazy and we couldn't see the state lines on hole #14 but fantastic it was. I'm glad I took our camera to capture some of the sights but the pictures will in no way do them justice. I don't hit the ball far, but i'm generally straight. My husband on the other hand, hits it straight but sometimes is in the rough and if there is sand, he'll find it! We laughingly asked the guy cleaning our clubs and unloading them into our car, if they made side bets as to how many empty sleeves of balls were left in carts. He was a gentleman and said no but the smile on his face said yes. We left 4 sleeve boxes in the cart!! We both admit that this was the toughest course we've played but also, we'd play it again in a heart beat! It's pricy but check out the packages and you'll be pleasantly surprised.

This is the course in Galena. It is tough, with few lies that are solid. It is definetly worth the money...

WOW!! - What a layout!

One of the most fabulous courses you will ever play. The view of 3 states from the 14th teebox is incredible. And it's an easy par 4 hole 180 feet from tee down to fairway. The drive down will remind you of Lombardi Street in San Francisco. Other fantastic holes are #8, 11, & 17. Roger Packard took advantage of some great natural topography and did it well! Bring some money - it's not cheap!!!!
