Designed by Scott Miller, this course is located in the southeastern foothills of the McDowell Mountains and is an innovative departure from the “target” style courses constructed in the desert in the recent past. Its layout takes advantage of a variety of land features: rolling hills, ridgelines, lush valley and washes, with a backdrop of prominent mountain outcroppings. In many instances, long extended views into untouched desert landscapes and area landmarks, such as Camelback Mountain, will be afforded. It is a strategic design, which asks the player to make choices relative to skill level.

Great day at Eagle Mountain

It was a pleasure playing the course today. It was in great shape and the greens were running nicely. Pace of play moved along and the marshal was attentive to keep things going. The practice facility is very nice also. I would have like to ended the round with a drink and snack to the restaurant but they were closed by 4:30. I would definitely come back to play.

Nice course

Course was still growing back in after overseeding…pace of play was too slow…waited on every tee for the guys in front. I think they are jamming too many people in. Also let the 2pm t off ahead of us..and they were not good. Layout and scenery is 2nd to none.

Best conditions I’ve seen it! Lots of improvements!

I had played this course twice last spring and enjoyed it! First time in April, very nice condition! Second time late may they were struggling!

I played yesterday morning and wow!! So much nicer both in conditions and playability! I see that there has been significant investments in turf and how the course plays!

I suggest you get out and play it before they go into overseed!!!

Bombs Away

I had been wanting to play this course for years but never got around to it. Unfortunately the rain closed the back 9, but the place was still fantastic. I look forward to coming back when it’s dry to see just how many 350 yard downhill bombs I can launch.

Greens are terrible

The greens are worse than some bad public courses at muni level. They charge you $2 for water fee. For that I expected cold water bottles but all they have is water tanks on the course that are warm or empty. Lot of nerve charging for water on a hot/humid day. The greens are in rough shape. The price of $20-$30 less than paid would have been fairer for the condition of those greens. I enjoyed the course layout. Fees were silly.

Thank you for the review. The water fee that you mention is not for drinking water but instead a fee to offset the high costs of potable water for the course. Due to the high cost of potable water we are forced to use reclaimed water and this fee gives is the ability to blend the poor quality water with good clean water.

Worst greens in AZ

Thank you very much for your feedback. We want you to know that our agronomic team is working tirelessly to get the golf course back to the exceptional conditions Eagle Mountain Golf Club is known for. The greens are recovering quickly and should be back to normal by the end of July. The bunker renovation you mentioned will be completed by the end of July as well and will dramatically enhance the overall experience. Thank you again for your feedback.

Greens need work

The course conditions where ok for the money. The worst part was the greens. Also they’re doing lots of bunker work.

not a good value - the greens were in the worst shape of any course i’ve ever played in AZ in 30 yrs. also had bunker work in progress with areas roped off and closed. I would not recommend this course until Troon has at least a year to turn it back around

Playable challenging mountain course

They are reworking the bunkers and some of the fairways - so conditions not ideal now but it did not detract from enjoying a great round.

Upside

This is always a fun course, and the condition of the greens didn’t change that. I saw many reviews as to how bad of shape the greens were in and had to see for myself. Are they in good shape? No, they aren’t, but I attribute that to attempting to manipulate the winter grass in to living longer. This year was a tough transition for golf courses. The tees, fairways, and areas around the greens were more than solid so I have no complaints. Most folks leaving poor reviews couldn’t 2-putt from 45 feet regardless of the condition of the greens. I’d recommend this course to anyone who enjoys a good, solid challenge as it is a second shot golf course.

Bad Greens!!!

The course was generally in good shape EXCEPT for the bad greens!!!
tee to green the course was in very good condition and I could live with the numerous bunkers under repair but the front nine greens were terrible and the back nine, while they were somewhat better they still need attention. not sure if a fungus got em or what.

Thank you very much for your feedback. We want you to know that our agronomic team is working tirelessly to get the golf course back to the exceptional conditions Eagle Mountain Golf Club is known for. The issues experienced are short term and we are seeing improvements in the conditions each and every day as we transition from the winter ryegrass to the strong warmer season Bermuda turf. We also
embarked upon a course enhancement program in May that will include a bunker renovation and other turf/agronomic cultural practices that will enhance the agronomic concerns you raised and enhance playability in many other ways. Again what you experienced is not the norm and we are excited about the future as well as the current results we are seeing from the new agronomic practices already being implemented to enhance/elevate conditions.

The greens were horrible. I understand a few greens in the summer may be dried out but 15 of the 18? Unacceptable for the price
