The Ridge Course at the Eagle Crest Golf Resort first opened for play in 1987. The course was designed by John Thronson.
The Ridge Course has hosted two Northwest Opens and, most recently, the 2006 Oregon Open. It's known as a "drivers dream" with ample landing areas for those who like to hit the long ball and features a straightforward, fair layout that challenges players of levels.
Par for the course is 72. From the back tees the course plays to 6,927 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 4,792 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 5, a par-5 that plays to 542 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 7, a par-3 that plays to 173 yards from the back tees.
Watch out for # 8, a 434 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 15, a 179 yard par-3.
Hole #12 is the signature hole. This par three features elevated tees playing to a slender green and boasts magnificent views of the Cascades. When playing this hole, beware - out of bounds lurks just left of the cart path and players often make the mistake of focusing too much on the water hazard only to land outside play just left of the bunker. The twelfth forces players to hit a precise shot as the only bail out option is to lay up significantly short of the green. This hole can provide a challenge to even the top players.
