Years ago I used to play Great Eagle and it was an OK course. Yesterday I played it and it was a major disappointment! The water hazards had dried up to mud holes and many of the sand traps had been allowed to grass over. The greens had burn spots from over fertilizing and there were 2 bee hives in the middle of the fairways in sprinkler boxes. That isn’t safe....

I will never play there again.

The course was a little rough. . . greens could use some TLC, but for 16.00 what do you expect. The carts that we had both had very poor brakes and were a little sketchy!

A lot of dried up areas that need attention. The greens need help but they worked around the bad areas.The cart paths are really in bad shape but it looks like there trying to repair them.At the price I paid Icould handle the poor conditions.

Permitted early tee-off which was appreciated.<br/> Not overly busy. Went 17holes before we had to wait any significant amount of time. Finished in 4 hours.<br/> The front 9 is a little rough with cart paths of broken concrete , dirt and very patchy fairways. The back 9 is way better. Most greens are in very good condition and roll true. Good variety of shaping on the holes.<br/> Worth what we paid.

Nice course and they were running an excellent special deal. Probably too far for me to play again since I live in N. Phoenix (45-50 min. drive). Moderately long course with very long distances between most holes. I like to walk, but the added distance was too much. Rent a cart.

The course itself is laid out and is challenging with bright winding fairways and numerous moguls on every hole. Landing in the moguls requires some creative shot making as your feet and stance are compromised. The front nine and maintenance was ugly, lots of bare spots because they skimped on laying enough winter seed fairway and greens. The back nine was noticeably better but still lacking. Ball washes were either close to dry and filthy water plus no towel attached. Every tee box was littered with broken tees .what does that mean?

Absolutely the worst and Slowest 5 holes of golf i have ever played, rangers and prostaff were useless to fave the group in front of us who fell 2 holes behind after 5 holes have them do anything. We left after 5 holes 1:26 mins, after we started. If you have nothing but time and patience you may enjoy this course.

Course is shaping up nicely and for some reason it was pretty quiet Friday so we played as a twosome and the pace was excellent - under 4 hours. Fairways are really coming nicely and greens were pretty consistent. Great day all around!

It usually has too many groups booked, for the pace of play, we started at 12:32, and did not finish before dark at 5:30, when we drove in from the 17Th Tee box. The week prior we just managed to finish before dark, and we started at the same time. We did not envy the groups behind us that could not finish. But everybody was friendly while we waited three groups thick at every tee box.

Course was nice and people are friendly as always but the play was incredibly slow. Very, very busy and the round took over 5 hours which is rare for this course usually plays in 4 hours or less.

Booked here on golf now because it didn't look busy, not the best course but not the worst... teed off at 12:00 and came up 18 in the dark, five and a half hours to Play 18 ( three hours for the front nine) the slowest pace I've ever seen and I play at least twice a week and have for years, 15 minute wait at every hole, two groups backed up waiting on every hole... was silly slow and nobody out there to move things along, everybody complaining and the course didn't care, topic of conversation with every group at the tee boxes waiting... lots of frustration

The fairways and greens were not perfect, but acceptable. Pace of play was terrible with an almost 5 1/2 hour round on a Friday afternoon. The course was interesting with a links style feel on most holes, water in play on some, and forced carries on a few. I initially thought that management created the slow play by not allowing enough time between tee times, but after reviewing the scorecard, have decided that the course lay-out is to blame. Playing the Copper Tees (6348 yards) there are 5 par fours that are 337 yards or less, and 4 par threes. This makes 9 holes that you have to wait for the group ahead to be on, or clear, the green. Even though I like the topography of the course, I will not be back because of the lay-out.
