Designed by Ron Garl and Gary Koch, the Forest Course at The Eagles Golf Club features the signature island-green sixth hole which rivals the famous 17th hole at the TPC at Sawgrass. The two outstanding championship courses at The Eagles Golf Club are kept in "tournament condition" year-round. As its name implies, much of Forest course winds through an impressive pine forest.

Tough day

Tough challenging course that’s in very good condition. Fairways and greens are in great shape compared to other places I’ve played. Some carts have gps/ range finders on them. Definitely will play here again.

Used to be great. Overall just bad.

No range balls because they didn't want to fish then out of the lake. Told this by inside staff and the nice guys at the cart barn, who were able to get me a few range balls to hit. Practice facilities in bad shape. Bunkers haven't been touched in weeks. Tee boxes were in rough shape. Bathrooms had pooped everywhere literally. See pic below

I would like some money back or a credit on another round. I play too.much for this to happen.

Great golf course. nice combination of layouts

You could choose depending upon how challenging you like the course… Definitely Forest is friendly as its slope states…

Even though greens were just aerated, it was nice to play…

Wait at least a month to be fully recovered

Always a Nice Course

I decided to play this course before the real summer rains came. It holds water !!!!! $18 fee was for aerated greens but I didn't care. I really do enjoy the layout. No refreshments on the course today as the "cart girl" didn't show. Not a big deal.

Nice course layout, but conditions not so great!

Unfortunately, this time around, the course conditions were not great. It is always a hit and miss at The Eagles. The tee boxes were in very poor condition, and they had just aerated the greens which made putting an impossible mission... At the time of booking, this is something that the course should disclose, or, as other golf course do in the area, discount the green fee. Hopefully next time will be a hit!

Needs a little TLC

The greens are in good condition and the fairways fir the most part we’re good however the tee boxes were in poor shape and pace of lay was slow with no ranger. Also the cart I was assigned Was devoid of divot sand and the cooler was full of yesterday’s empty’s. Attention to detail is important.

Promises Promises....

New managers took this over 6 months ago and they have done nothing they said they would do to improve.
They said they were installing a pizza oven, new menu, tournaments and even a food truck at the turn. Nothing has been done. To add to that the place is extremely dirty, just look under the coolers in the bar!

I would not order food here, surprised the health department allows them to be open. Today was Monday, burger and fry special. Guess what, NO FRIES!

Mis-managed

Played the Forrest course and gave 4 stars but really more like 3.5. The greens are in great shape and roll nice. The tee boxes and fairways need some work to be considered good. Aqua range to warm up and a fully stocked pro shop. Great bar for drinks before/after the round. If they tighten up the tee boxes and get some rain this should be back to a great course soon.

Nice course

It play a bit slow today, it was a holiday so it makes sense.

This course is nice, you can play it short, and use the white tees, or if you have been watching lots of PGA tour, go for it.

And play the tips..! Hope your handicap is up to part.

Lol enjoy..!
