The entire course was in excellent shape. Even though wet, the greens were very fast and quite challenging. We thoroughly enjoyed our round and will definitely return.

I highly recommend this course.

The Eagles Forrest course is one of the best in the area. Usually in excellent condition, fast and smooth greens, well manicured. The people are great and helpful. Food was very good(Nachos).

Took the family to The Eagles for a round during the holiday. The course is in good condition and greens are well maintained. My only complaint would be the bunkers are hard and wet underneath the top layer of sand.

My wife and I had a great time at the Eagles Golf Course in Odessa. Fairways and greens were well maintained and pace of play was excellent. We will definitely play this course, as well as the Lakes Course, again.

The Forest course at the Eagles is scenic. It is moderately challenging especially if you hit hooks or slices. I tend to keep the ball in the fairway so I thought it was nice.Several sets of tee boxes to make the course appropriately hard for your skill level. You'll see a lot of birds and probably a gator or two.

Very good condition tee to green. played the LAKES course the week before and strangely, there seemed to be much more water on the FORREST course. Would definitely play both courses again.
