Eagle Ranch consistently receives high ranking among the top 100 courses in Canada and of the top 59 Canadian public courses. Copper Point The Point is a natural, lay-of-the-land route with numerous "classic" elements, such as roughly hewn bunkers and excellent use of existing hills and ravines — the architectural merit of this design warrants play on its own.
