Eagle Springs Golf Course (formerly known as DeFuniak Springs Country Club) is Walton County's oldest course and one of the panhandle area's most challenging. The golf course sprawls across rolling hills covered with pine forests and five spring-fed lakes, both of which come into play throughout the course. Sandy scrub brush and colorful flowering bushes accent the landscape even further. The towering trees lining the tight fairways are just some of the many challenging natural hazards. There are also 23 strategically placed sand traps throughout. The small, elevated greens are pitched and undulated in such a manner that would make even the best putters nervous. The rolling elevations also provide picturesque views from nearly every point on golf course. Eagle Springs Golf Course requires accuracy and careful course management, but the layout is still surprisingly accessible for a range of skill levels. As part of recent initiatives and upgrades to the property and management, kids under 15 play free.

Spur of the moment not super

Had to drive an hour, then they tell us carts had to be in by 4:30. Started at 1:20 should have plenty of time. But paired us up, took forever. Only got 16 holes in. Course is not in good shape. Greens are horrible. Spray with paint, which they did right in front of us, fumes were strong. This makes greens feel like fake turf. This may be normal for courses, but I never heard of it. Anyway I like the lay out. Had a good score and did enjoy my day. But want go back. They are making great changes but not there yet.

Awesome layout

It is a work in progress. Forward tees need a lot of work. The cart paths are a great improvement. Can’t wait to see the course when it is in really good condition- a awesome layout!

Eagle Springs (formerly "DeFuniak Springs Country Club) is currently undergoing renovation. The improvement is easy to see with each visit. The course, which has always provided some challenges, is now becoming more beautiful. You'll enjoy your round.

A work in orogress

The course gets better each time I play, but, of course , still needs a lot of work- especially the forward tees. Fairways getting better- can’t wait to see the finished results!

Green elevations out of standard!

A few of the greens have way to much of an angle. Anything on the green rolls off from back to front. Disappointing!

Tee boxes not so good. Few bad spots in fairways. Greens are very challenging. They are raised and very fast.

Immaculate Conditioned Course

This course is a secret! The greens are truly the BEST I’ve seen in this area. The fairways were very well trimmed and professionally maintained. I highly recommended this course and will definitely be playing it again in the very near future.

Every place else was booked early

So I drove 38 miles to try Eagle Springs. Course in pretty rough shape. They DO have a nice cart path!
Tees and “fairways” need a lot of work. Traps are decent , a lot of new sand. Not too many.
Greens are mostly small, raised up a couple feet, from the era of building and maintaining courses with human or animal powered equipment.
They don’t look great but actually roll pretty consistent and are not very bumpy.
A quirky layout, a couple great holes, a few disasters.
Priced appropriately.

Ball washers are to low.

We had a great day of golf today. We are all over 80 years old so we play a best ball game to speed up play. The course is in great condition.
