Eagle Chase Golf Club


"Great course"

11/3/22: Review by Golfmusician

Played Eagle Chase for the first time yesterday. I had heard about the elevation changes, but I wasn't expecting as much as I saw. If you're a straight hitter, you'll have no problems here. If not, plan on losing balls. The Bermuda rough can be brutal, and if you get in...

Another opinion on Red Bridge
    • #3125

      Got this email a few days ago from Steven and thought I would share another opinion about this new course (see my review here):

      “Played 7/12/09. Course is in great shape; the rough will need some taming. Needs significant tweaking unless it becomes truly private. My main word for the layout is: GOOFY. #10 has a long carry to a narrow and very sloped fairway. #18 is a 625 yard par 5 to a small green perched on a hill with a gorge in front of it (that is from the WHITE tees?!?). Lots of blind shots: if you were a member and knew the course well these might even be fun, but not for the casual occasional player. The gold tees play 5700, the white tees play 6400 – they need something in between. Overall not impressed and unlikely to go back.”

      For a bogey golfer, there is a fine line between a challenging course and a ridiculously frustrating course. Redbridge is a ridiculously frustrating course.
      We played on the first day that the back 9 was open.
      Two of us normally shoot in the mid 90’s and two usually shoot high 80’s to low 90’s. Our scores were 101, 102, 109, 112 (playing from the Whites).

      My biggest problem with this course is that it doesn’t give you any options. If you miss the fairway, you are in big big trouble. Most courses with tight fairways and lots of trouble seem to give you choices. There are plenty of times when I’ve played a par 4 or 5 hole and hit a 5 iron off the tee to be safe. But at Redbridge, many of the holes have water or other hazards that extend far enough out from the!
      tee box, that you don’t have the option of hitting a “safe” shot. And a 620 yard par 5 from the whites? Come on, that’s just silly.

      This is an incredibly gorgeous course and for very low handicappers, I think it would be a great challenge. But as an 18 HCP, I will NOT play this course again. Not unless I’m really in the mood for some self punishment.
