About

Type Resort
Par 72
Length 6017 yards
Slope 120
Rating 68.2

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.

Un professional golf director

Tha golf director ruined my birthday golf with my wife by falsely accusing mo of which never happened he was talking to me in a harsh tone and accusing Golfnow for not having money or profit to maintain the golf course
In spite of knowing I m playing to celebrate my birthday golf with my wife he was not at all remorse of accusing me for which I replied it never happened other than one time he was yelling at me that I have asked many times
I want an investigation to this blame and acusation

Horrible pace of play and conditions

I was stuck behind a 5 some that was thankfully only playing 9. It took 3 hours to finish the front 9. This course was in desperate need of greens repair. They were littered with pitch marks. Almost 3/4 of the bunkers were either mud or filled with water. A ranger on the course for pace of play is desperately needed. Course was relatively straight forward if you are skilled with driver.

Course

First time at the course and it was a great place, did not expect the layout to be what is was. The course was challenging from beginning to end, will go again for sure, very pleased.

Extremely slow play, course poorly maintained

This course layout is short but very nice. Unfortunately, course is poorly maintained, pace of play is abysmally slow and ranger non-existent. The starter had no idea what he is doing and let out groups of 5, which made for a 5 1/2 hour round. My round was only $24 with TeeOff discount but still found it overpriced for the slow play and poorly maintained course conditions.

The Wood

I really enjoy playing this course. Two issues however, Bunker condition (mixture of mud and sand, which could destroy your score with a mis-hit),. At times the course can get packed depending on the day, so plan to spend some extra time.
