Roger Packard and Andy North designed this course, using the dramatic terrain to full advantage. The view from the signature hole offers a striking view of three states - Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin.

The General is an amazing course and fun if you are playing well. It can be nearly impossible if you are a bit of a spray and pray golfer like me. Worth playing at least once for some of the unique holes.

Despite all of the accolades the General received, our guys’ group found it the least enjoyable of the 18-hole courses at Eagle Ridge as a part of our stay and play package. It didn’t help that we played it twice on a 90-degree day. The...More

The General is a scenic fun golf course in good condition. It is a course one would come back and play again. We enjoyed the elevations.

The general golf course is a one of a kind course with its large ups and downs narrow and challenging fairways and breathtaking scenery. The twilight rate makes it a little more affordable at $60 as well.

The General is a pleasure to play. You need to play from the correct tees so that you can maximize your golfing experience. It is a must play on anyone's list.

Beautiful course that challenges your best shots. Long tee shots are required. Bring plenty of extra balls, if you miss the fairway, you are going to lose a few. This is an expensive course to play and unfortunately the staff doesn't always use best judgement...More

We took our 12 year old here and she loved it. Beautiful town and the history in it is great. A must see if you are at all interested in Civil War history.
