Finally emerging from our PGA stupor – here is a northern Minnesota course we visited earlier this summer. Eagle Ridge Golf Course in Coleraine is my favorite Grand Rapids area course, stretching to 6,772 yards from the tips, with a rating of 72.1 and a slope of 132.
Course designer Garrett Gill made the most of the terrain, with holes four through six being my favorite stretch on the course. I guess it helps that I played them one-under-par, missing an ace by four inches on the 154-yard par three fourth.
The course wasn’t very busy when we were there, but was in good condition. The 18 hole walking rate is $29 weekdays and $32 on weekends and holidays.
