Imagine an estate on a ridge overlooking beautiful Sturgeon Lake. Now picture yourself walking this ridge on the most scenic pay-as-you-play course in the Kawartha region. "…the 389-yard, par four sixth, whose fairway bisects a forest of pine and descends to a tree-cradled green; and the stunning 396-yard ninth hole, which drives you through a chicane of maples to a two-tiered green..." Toronto Life Golf Guide. Tee-Off magazine describes Eganridge as having impeccable course maintenance and Poanna grass in perfect condition. Winding 3003 yards through pristine forests and unspoiled wetland areas, the par 35, nine-hole course is a true pleasure to play.

Surprisingly quick greens. I slipped past the hole on almost every putt (except for the ones that went in).
Average sized greens with some very tricky reads.
Yardage markers were stakes in the middle of the fairway at the standard 100, 150, and 200 yard locations. Average width but yet I had a tough time giving myself a fairway lie. Perhaps it had to do with the strong wind on this day.
Very good condition for early in the season.
I played from the tips at a distance of 3003 yards yet the course played longer.
Signage is clearly posted on all holes.
Grass on tees is good with only the par 3s showing a bit of wear. Tees are flat but not overly large.
Beside the par 3s, I can't think of a hole that I could see the pin from the tee. Slight doglegs made greens only visible on your second shot.
There's water on only three holes but it shouldn't enter play as it should be easily cleared from the tee.
There's a bit more land around Eganridge that looks interesting for golf course use but I'm not sure whether the course has access to it.
Eganridge has exceptional value for a round of golf. The cost for a nine hole round matches almost every other nine holes in the area but Eganridge is a step up in quality.
An uphill approach to any green will almost certainly require taking an extra club. Especially on #9/18.
Quick greens saw my ball over run the hole on my bump and runs.
Hazards are minimal but the odd fescue patch and/or trees can hamper a stray shot.
The Eganridge clubhouse overlooks Lake Sturgeon but none of the holes actually give you a view of the lake. The course is nicely manicured and a few planted areas around tees are a good focal point.
I always love an active fountain and one can be found between hole #5 and #6.
Out on the course it was pretty quiet but in the clubhouse there was at least five staff members available to assist. I had a good chat in the pro shop both before and after my round and found out quite a deal about the club.
You can see the historic stone framework inside the clubhouse almost hidden amongst the rustic upgrades. The main building offers a great restaurant with approximately 20 rooms for Stay & Play packages. Highly recommended!
The flow of the Eganridge course has a seemingly natural route. The club has 100 members strong which is impressive for the location of the club.
Eganridge offers a lot of extras that other courses do not. Their Stay & Play packages are high end with a spa and fine dining on site.
A great spot for a couples retreat.
