Roger Packard’s work at Eagle Ridge stretched for 20 years, ultimately resulting in four courses for the resort. Most consider The General to be the best of the bunch, which means he truly saved the best for last.

The course, which he co-designed with U.S. Open champion Andy North, uses its dramatic elevation changes to leave an impression. The signature hole is No. 6, a par four that stretches 440 yards...but will play considerably less, considering the 180 feet of drop from tee-to-green. There is plenty of fairway to catch your drive, but you may still want to favor the right, so that a prominent oak doesn’t block your approach shot.

Packard was a born Chicagoan (his father was Larry Packard, another prominent architect) and North was born in Wisconsin, yet both could reasonably consider Eagle Ridge a “hometown” destination; the course sits in the far northwest corner of Illinois, making it as easily accessible to Wisconsinites and Iowans.
