Eagle Mountain Golf Club
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.

Poor fairway and greens condition
It’s terrible that your web site does not mention how bad the course conditions.. are. I would not have brought my friends to this golf course especially with all the other great courses in the area, shame on you Troon
Course was in bad shape. Played her this past November and it was beautiful. Very disappointed... greens and fairways were in horrible condition especially the greens. Hope the problem is soon resolved . Too pretty of a layout for the less than perfect conditions. Won’t be coming back. Wish were given a heads up!
I look forward to playing this golf course every year I come down here. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this golf course in such crappy shape. I can’t say I’ll everhe come back. Not even discounted golf for such poor conditions what a joke.
I had not played the course in a year. The greens are horrible. Some areas are painted to hide the lack of grass. The fairways lack quality grass as well. The traps had very little sand in them. TROON should be ashamed by this poor quality .There was NO notification, NO discount offered and NO apologies,
What a disaster!!
I have never seen the course in this condition. No grass on greens. No sand in traps. Practice area a mess. Total disaster.
Rough shape, amazing staff and views
Amazing views as always. However this time the course was in rough shape. Lots of burnouts lots of bad lies. Bunkers missing sand. Just wasn't in that great of shape. Greens roll true, however grass is in bad shape. Staff was amazing as always.
The course layout is fantastic but the course appears to be in a transition. If the rough spots and greens are fixed I would rate it 5 stars.
I Can't Believe They Charge Money For This Course
This is, hands down, the worst course, conditionwise, in the valley. The fairways were bare, the greens were bare and sandy, the bunkers were barren of sand. I was in shock playing this course. I could not believe how bad the conditions were. There is no other course in the area that comes close to being this bad. They should just shut down the course until they figure out how to grow grass. They should stop ripping everyone off with this unplayable course.
Fun challenging purse.
The staff could not have been better. Friendly and attentive. The greens had been sanded and rolled
It played better than expected. Some areas of the fairway should have been marked ground under repair due to sanding and seeding. Will put this course on my replay list.
No Grass on the Greens
Played Monday, 4/19/21. The rate was $110. There was absolutely no grass on the greens, making the course unplayable. Didn't get a notice from the course when we booked, stating the greens were diseased and scalped to dirt. Basically putting on concrete all day. Putts were literally running 30-50 feet past the cup on multiple occurences. Couldn't stop anything within 10' of the hole, would just keep trickling out. Will not be back, found it to be unethical to charge that much for a course that was not playable. Won't be playing here ever again.
One of my favorites
One of my favorite courses in PHX area, however, currently in brutal condition due to some kind of plight that has significantly impacted course conditions. Very little, if any, grass on the greens and fairway grass patchy at best and hard as a rock. Putting close to impossible, similar to putting on the cart path. Played here in early March and frankly, course in much worse condition than it was 7 weeks ago. Still some of the best views in the area! Unfortunately, I won’t be back for a while. Disappointing, can only hope Troon will get this one back on the right track.
Worst shape course in all of Scottsdale
We played EM on April 13th with family from out of state. I have played EM off and on over 25 years and worked there when it first opened. I have never, ever experienced this golf course in such sad shape. The greens had huge bare spots....I mean zero to very little grass and painted green with the fertilizer. Fairways and rough...sad as well. Zero excuses and at a minimum, let paying golfers know what kind of shape the course is in. Didn’t lower their rates at all...total BS!! Will never come back.
We loved the layout of the course and the views are great. Unfortunately the greens were in terrible shape, almost no grass on them so putting was frustrating to say the least. The last few holes were not as bad but still not good. We had lunch after out on the patio and it was delicious. I'm sure we will be back, but will make sure conditions are worth the price before booking.
I liked the course layout and views but the greens were sparse and appeared to be painted green to dry to hide the dry and bare spots. The greens and fairways indicated the course is short on water.
As a proud 25yr AZ resident, I had always taken my Midwestern visitors to EMGC to give them that “Wow!” desert\mountain golf experience. This time around, I was completely embarrassed by this course and the condition it is in. The course superintendent should be fired for allowing the course to get this bad. Let’s start with the greens… Actually, there are no greens, just mostly mounds of dirt that have been spray painted green. I am not kidding... The staff called it “Makeup”. This should have been brought to our attention when checking in and some form of reduced fee applied. However, the exact opposite happened, each player was charged an extra $5 over golf now rate for what they called a “water” fee. This water fee supposedly covered the cost to put an Igloo cooler on every other hole by the tee box. We teed off mid-afternoon and when I went to get my $5 drink of water around 5pm, it was warm from sitting out there all day. Finally, we have the bunkers which were mostly devoid of sand. (Or the sand was packed down so hard). One needed a pick axe to get under the ball. I am going to skip the burned out fairway conditions and that the sprinklers were turned on while we were still on 17 fairway. (Making the dirt areas that used to be greens inaccessible on last two holes). I know, very harsh review, but this normally solid 4 star course is currently suffering on all points and an embarrassment to Arizona Golf. Stay away til the fall.
BEWARE- this course has a problem with the greens. Dead grass, patchy, areas, some greens have you putting on dirt with what lookslike a green paint mix. The course should alert people playing that the layout is beautiful, scenary amazing (on some holes) but the bunkers have no sand and the greens minimal grass and you putt on dirt.
Gray value compared to surrounding courses
Great views and really interesting layout. Lots of elevation changes. Greens are super quick but fair. Would play here again for sure.
