only one problem
It was Nov 5 and there had been no attempt to remove the leaves that had fallen on the course. This made finding errant shots really difficult.
Further, one maintenance guy continued to mow around the green as we putted, acting as if he didn't see us. Very distracting and all agreed that it was rude. I'm sure the guy was hourly so what's the big rush ?
These isolated temporal issues should not keep you from playing this course however. Just venting a bit.
First time playing here. Beautiful course for fall golf. Multiple challenging dog leg holes. Delicious beer choices at the bar.
Some of the fairways were dry, with no grass. Greens were fast but ok.
Course is totally burned out. Greens have multiple dead spots. So dry you break multiple tees just trying to tee a ball up. Very sad management let this happen.
Beautiful day at the Pointe
The greens were amazing; great roll, lots of speed yet held approach shots.
Great layout being restored to it’s original beauty
First time I played Eagle Pointe on the southern edge of Bloomington, Indiana. Course has a tremendous layout with well placed bunkers. Fairways and greens were in great shape. It’s amazing how far they have brought the golf course and facility back to life with more improvements to come. The new group running the course know what they are doing. Beautiful swimming pool and pavilion attached to the clubhouse. Friendly staff also. It was a steal to play and ride 18 holes for just $31. It will be fun watching the continued improvements. Very good golf course in beautiful southern Indiana.
A Work In Progress
Been watching them try and get this course back in shape since previous owner let it go. I play it once or twice a year just to see how it's coming along. Leave disappointed every time. Rough is too thick so that slows play even more with people looking for their ball. Bunkers are still unplayable with rough hard sand (if any) that is not maintained. Plenty of new players and hackers now since the super membership 3-year deal so slower play and they will not take care of the course. Going to be a long haul if the don't hire some help to keep it up. Used to be a premier course, hopeful they can bring it back close to that level.
Lots of blind shots
First time playing this course - glad the starter told us about the unseen water on No 1 w/in everyone’s drive distance. Many of the the holes were blind drives or hard dog legs - challenging but tough for someone unfamiliar with the course. Long grass in the rough made play a little slow; fairways were ok, greens stuck well and reading breaks was not terrible. Overall not a bad course.
Much better than 5 years ago
Eagle Point has had quite the tumultuous past over the 10 years my parents have lived near the golf course. This has been one of the better times we have played, especially given the covid 19 situation. Eagle point offers quite the challenge especially on the par 5's. We played the front 9 and had a great time, fairways were great, the rough was rough as it should be, the water hazards are not forgiving if you have a slice. It's definitely a course worth giving it a second chance if you haven't in a long time. Only negative I have to say is that we have felt rushed by groups behind us, whether that's from us playing the game it's meant to be played or others groups playing best ball, Not a fault of the course or management.
Great layout...what a shame
I/we say “what a shame” as were excited to play this course for the first time. The staff was very nice and layout was fun. Unfortunately, that is where the positives end. The condition of the majority of the course was very poor. Most of the traps were unplayable (see pictures) and tee boxes were in awful condition. I/we hope they put some TLC and money into this facility but we will not be back until this happens.
Wow! This course has a fantastic layout and was undoubtedly great in the past. However, with the recent drought the conditions have become extremely unfavorable to say the least. It was so easy to lose a ball in what was supposed to be the fairway but has becomes overgrown native grasses/weeds. The greens were in decent shape making them, the staff and the facilities the highlights. At this time, we cannot recommend the course.
Very unfortunate state of disrepair
20 years ago I played this course for the first time. Back then it was a very good course. The layout is fair to good. That hasn't changed. Unfortunately every thing else has. The fairways are mowed, but seem like plain yard-grass, with some being crabgrass and clover filled. The bunkers have no sand, they're just dry dirt and weeds. There is no real first cut of rough. The rough is unkempt and, in some places, 3-4 inches high just feet off of the fairway. The greens are so slow that they're almost unplayable. Some of the holes have grass growing over the cup (looks like the haven't been moved in a month).
I was hopeful the new ownership would get things in order. That's not happening. Avoid this course unless you get a deal for less than $15.
The only positive is that the pro-shop staff is very friendly.
My guess is that the couse will close and the land developed for residential construction.
