In the course
of a single round, golfers will weave through mountain forests,
around wildflower-meadows, and over crystal ponds. There is even
an abandoned bear den guarding a spectacular par 3! When you play
Eagle Ranch, be sure to bring lots of film, but don't get too distracted
by its beauty. Eagle Ranch has the pedigree of a champion. No hole
better typifies this fact than the spectacular 18th.
full 537 yards from the back tees, a long and well-placed drive
is an absolute must here. If all goes well with your drive you
will have anywhere between 150 and 200 yards left for your second
shot, to get you into perfect position to attack the pin. There
is only one small catch. In-between you and a successful second
shot is a 100-yard ravine that has developed a modest appetite
for golf balls. If all goes well an easy sand wedge from anywhere
inside 100 yards will set you up for a birdie on a green that
offers some of the most spectacular views of the Columbia Valley
and Lake Windermere.
by noted architect Bill Robinson, Eagle Ranch employs undulating
greens, subtle changes in elevation, and a daunting combination
of six water hazards and sixty sand traps to keep your game
honest. Don't be intimidated though, with a choice of four
tee-blocks you will be able to find the right game to help
you tame Eagle Ranch.
