Eagles Pride Golf Course has long been known as one of the best military courses in the country and luckily for golfers, it's open to the public. Originally opened in 1940, the course started as the 18-hole Fort Lewis Golf Course. Another nine was added in 1979 but it wasn’t until the mid-1990s that it became Eagles Pride. The three nines are called the Green, Red, and Blue, and they are played in different 18-hole combinations. The Green/Red Course starts with the newest and most challenging of the three nines. The course will test you with plenty of trees, water hazards, undulating slopes, and even the occasional blind shot. There are some tough holes but players of all skill levels could enjoy any of the nines.
Previously known as Green/Red at Fort Lewis Golf Course.

Nice course, but lots of freeway noise

I like the design and, although the course was wet and the greens had lots of fir needles due to overnight rain and wind, the conditions were quite good. Only issue was with how loud the freeway noise is on several holes. Due to the rain we had the course to ourselves. The rain stopped and we had a great round…

Staff

Staff is to uptight and worried about nothing. Just folks that want to be in charge of something. And they also don’t book single players online most the time that should be changed. I was also told a single would slow things down. False singles usually play faster.

Greens were great

Saw a few folks on the front and nobody on the back. Very relaxing day in a nice space. Would do this again in a heartbeat. Sand was pretty good.

First Time Playing

1st time playing Eagles Pride Golf Course

I booked a tee time as a single using Golf Now, didn’t realize there was a large group playing the Red and Blue 9s… that meant I was assigned the Green course - twice. Certainly unusual.

I liked the layout, the greens putted better than I thought they might given how wet the entire course was. TBH the fairways were in pretty bad shape… extremely wet (late August, no real rain for months) and very shaggy.

Disappointed

My fee I paid for through GolfNow was not only the green fees but also a golf cart included. However when I was checking in I was told no golf carts available as they all reserved for a golf scramble. So I had to purchase a push cart instead. If I knew I had to walk, I would have never booked a reservation at this golf course. The other gentlemen were also not happy with not getting their golf carts as well. Some how GolfNow needs to let us know that golf carts are not available through the deals GolfNow advertises. To make matters worst, new players were allowed to tee off when we were making the turn.

Excellent Conditions

Conveniently located next to I-5, Eagles Pride is an old style course with tall fir trees lining every fairway, a collection of interesting holes with mostly large sloped (not very fast) greens and a single fairway bunker.

The course is surprisingly well watered. There are few if any brown spots anywhere on the course, which you probably can't say about a single public course in Washington state right now. In fact, one approach shot actually plugged in a green. Conditions were more what you would expect in May than during a dry July.

The restaurant is only open from 11 to 3 five days a week. The food was good, but the menu is limited to burgers and hot dogs, with bottled beverages.
