I play here all the time. The maintenance has stepped up their game and the progress is noticeable. Especially right now that it's 90-100 degrees. #8 used to be barren and now it's a field of green. Yes, there is work to be done, but it's exciting to see the changes and I'll continue playing here because the layout is pretty awesome.

Course has a great layout, a lot of options other than just hitting driver on every hole. Condition of the course was very poor. Greens were in terrible shape and very little grass in the fairway. For what I paid, less than $20 on a Saturday, that was about what it was worth. Would come back in the future if they found a solution to their poor greens.

Course could use a bit more water on fairways. Some brown spots on greens, but they were basically soft and rolled well. New management group is trying to turn things around and course is very pretty in its location. Reminds me a bit of Mt. Woodson.

Played in April and May and course looked to be improving. This trip, the fairways are in serious need of water. More brown batches than green. Greens are OK, a little on the slow side. Tee boxes are in need of work, as some are patchy at best.

You get what you pay for (if you snag a hot deal), but paying more than $25 for this track is too much.

This is a terrible course. Here is a run-down of our day for 3 decent golfers (handi-cap index 3.5, 10, 14).

- Private, gated course and no clear way as to how to get into the gated area. We had to sneak in behind another car.

- Shoddy, sad 'clubhouse' is more like a temporary sales trailer

- Gentleman checking us in couldn't be bothered to stop his conversation on his cell phone to say good morning or welcome.

- Ladies washroom was FILTHY!!!!! (hovering required). The paper towel holder was jammed up so I had to use TP to dry my hands.

- Greens were shaggy and slow

- 'fairways' were frequently patches of dirt. At least 4 times each of us struggled to find a patch of green to hit off of.

- Tee boxes were frequently just patches of dirt. They were also very uneven.

- bunkers were filled with small rocks and 'sand' was more like contractor grade fill. Several times we removed our balls from the 'sand' b/c we didn't want to damage our wedges

- it's just sad... seems like no money has been put into it in 10+ years. So many other golf courses that one can play.

I've played this course a few times , haven't been there in almost 10 years it's a shame such a beautiful course can turn into such a ratty looking mess, . Tee boxes were horrid, some were dirt. the greens were slow and shaggy like a pitch and putt. I can't recommend this course to anyone it's just too bad of shape and there's too many other courses the play that have green grass and not dirt fairways. I really hope they can turn around and turn it back to what it once was, I was very disappointed

I enjoyed my round and can recommend it to others as long as I let them know what they are getting into. The shop staff and course design/layout is excellent, but the course conditions are as poor as any course in the area making it fine for a practice round but lousy for a serious game. They have recently changed maintenance contractors, but that is not the real issue as course maintenance needs more than a tune-up, it needs an overhaul as a result of long deferred upkeep and maintenance. The bunkers have long needed sand replenishment and many have serious drainage issues such as the one on nine that is a pond. The irrigation system is faulty, resulting in significant areas of the fairways such as number 1 and 3 having bare dirt where turf should exist and most have large brown spots. Even some of the tee boxes are in very poor shape. Most water features are overgrown with cattails. The greens are fair to good. Despite all of these negatives and because there is so little traffic, it is a good place to work on your game if you understand that many shots are going to require that you bump your ball to get some grass under the ball and this includes many of the primary landing areas. Sadly, and like many courses in the area, it needs more work than the economics of the situation will support. If you go there without understanding what you are getting into relative to course condition you will be disappointed with everything but the friendly and helpful staff.

I live on the course and frequent the putting green. I also just walk the course so I see almost everyday any progress. this place has every excuse as to why the place looks so ragged. For years neglect and laziness have taken a toll on a once nice course. The owners and management team look at the same problems every time they are there playing golf with their friends and the same lies are told about how the course is being worked on. Trees are cut or blown over from a lack of water and left. water ponds are drying up since the liners are never fixed and people always fishing in them and cattails that are never trimmed out. Walkways never edged. t boxes dry fairways patchy brown. Traps are rocky the rough is just that hard dry brown grass or just dirt. don't use a club to find a ball ob since every thing is soo dry you might start a fire so bring some water if you have the nerve to play here. Just remember the owners and management don't care about your complaints they just want your money.

No water coolers on the course and it was 100 degrees. One person running the clubhouse and can't put out the coolers.

Course burned out even though the lakes are full.

Greens are extremely long and bumpy.

No plans to put any money back into the course.

To play at Eagle Crest means all your money goes to the Corporation, not the course.

I have to say I am disappointed with Eagle Crest. It's in a great spot, winding through what looks like a nice gated community, and it has the potential to be very nice. I can see that they DO work on it, the greens are nice and some of the traps are good. But the fairways are in poor shape - mostly they seem to need water but also some rehab work. Many yardage markers and ball washers are missing and at least one lake is drained. If I see from these and other reviews that folks see improvement, I'd go back, but until then I'll pass.

I did not feel we got a round worth $42. The course is in really bad shape. Furthermore the staff are not evn maintaining the easiest things. It was quite hot and they have water coolers throughout the course, but every single one was empty!. That is the easiest and cheapest thing they could do and yet it wasn't done. Furthermore the food from the snackbar was subpar. Not going back here unless there are some drastic changes.
