Eaglewood Resort & Spa
Located just northwest of Chicago, the Eaglewood Resort & Spa opened for play in 1932. It is a classic championship golf course, built during a time when the long drive was unheard of. The 6,017-yard layout seems short by today's standards, but the course still offers a formidable challenge. It features rolling fairways lined with century-old oak trees and wildly undulating, difficult-to-read greens with varying speeds that fluctuate depending on the weather, season, and even time of day. There are generous landing areas but they are bordered by deep, strategically placed bunkers that are just waiting to swallow even slightly errant shots. The carefully sculpted and plentiful bunkers are a prominent feature of the layout. Eaglewood's scenic landscape also has three lakes that come into play on eight holes.

Great place to play
Need a bit more sane in the bunkers. Nice job on the recent landscaping. Hole 17 forward pin placement can be punishing from below or above the hole.
Nice Course, Bad conditions
First time playing this course for me. The golf course was in decent condition for this time of year but was very wet/soggy due to all the rain in April. Course was cart path only and the ground was pretty squishy everywhere other than the greens. Greens were in decent shape. Sand traps were pretty bare or were mini-ponds (due to heavy rain the previous evening). Overall the course is pretty short if not playing from the Blacks. Started the round from the Silver/White tees but for the first 6 or 7 holes it was basically Driver/Wedge/Putter so switched to Black tees. Pace was ok -- bit slow but that was understandable given the cart path only conditions. Will definitely play again should be a better experience once the weather improves.
Love playing this course !!! People are friendly , course layout is challenging for all levels . It was cart path only due to the weather .
Pedestrian with lots of sand
Eaglewood (Nordic Hillls) has been around for a long time. "Resort Course" but overall the course suffers from a lack of updates. In decent enough shape during the summer it features rock hard greens - several with sand traps fronting or partially fronting...making the course too difficult for less than average players to enjoy their resort experience. Some really uninspired green pads.... most if not all sloping back to front....and in the summer way too fast if you get above the hole. A bit of elevation changes on a few of holes - most are really short for their par....and several that are too long. Eaglewood is a less than once a season play for me. A decent enough place to get in a first round. It was nice to see that they seem to allow carts in the parking lot...it was a real pain not to be able to load up next to the car...lugging your gear to and fro at some distance. Prepare for resort prices on your beverages - $7 for a can of IPA was a bit much. Course is a $30-$35 value at most. When crowded wear a hard hat and gird yourself for some really slow play.. as there's a lot of sand for newbies to fend off and very little space between holes.

Cons: no range, pretty bad course layout, took forever, not a great stop and go at 9
Wet day early season golf
Eaglewood is a nice course. I never liked the layout but for the money it’s a fun little course. I would go to Bloomingdale if you’re going out thst way
