Eagles nest had fast greens and in places very thin cover such that the ball would wander. The putting green was practically bald. Overall the layout is decent with good conditions. 3/20/17 10 handicap; 4:45 round

Really like the course design, but the fairways are in poor shape. To be fair, extreme cold has kept some grasses dormant, but vegetation spotty/weedy. Greens mostly ok.

It was worse than a cow pasture. Crab grass all over the greens, tee boxes uneven, bone dry fairways, greens practically unplayable. The staff was extremely friendly. It was advertised as the toughest finishing holes in MB. For my money, they were fair. I parred all three and I am not that good of a golfer. The toughest finishing holes in MB are at Glenn Dornoch (almost unplayable). I would NEVER go back.

Average condition for March 1st. Need to play winter rules to get a good lie in the fairway. Greens were average, but rolled pretty true. Would probably play again as the price is reasonable.

We been coming to MB area for several yrs and never gave Eagle's Nest a chance. We were led to believe it was 2nd rate. Wow ,we were very surprised. Course is in excellent shape.....bunkers are well groomed.....greens are fast and true......fairways are over seeded and dry. The staff ,including snack bar were friendly and helpful.

The fairways needed a little work but the greens were fast. They were sandy and held well. Fairly wide open on the front 9 and tightens on the back. I like that if you strayed you could pretty much always find your ball and if there wasn't line of site to the green then you took your lumps and chipped it back to the fairway. Not a lot of time hunting for balls which made the pace of play good. Especially for a Saturday. Just a little over 4 hours. An enjoyable day!

Eagle nest is a good layout and a challenge for a 65 yr old from the white tees. You must get off the tee b/c of length of holes.

Tee blosks need work - short of grass and badly worn areas.

I played this course on consecutive days. Day 1 was wet from a heavy rain. Several areas were soggy and by day two they were better but not completely dry. Greens were in good shape as was most of the course. They did a nice job of cleanup after Matthew roared throug. Some work still under way. The course is challenging for a 20 handicapper like me but very fair. Pace of play was great on Day 1 -- a Thursday. Very slow on Day 2 -- a Friday. It was a five-hour round. The course could stand to have a ranger out there pushing slower groups. Decent driving range and nice practice area for putting. That said, all golfers out there were patient and courteous.
