Great staff! Polite friendly and helpful. Course was in good condition, not perfect but despite all the rain it was in terrific shape. Green designs are difficult but fair. No tricked up holes. Really nice day.

The Lakes course was in great condition. The greens and fairways were nice as well. I played from the tips and the course is not that long for par 4's and 5's, but the par 3's were all 190+. Also, my only pet peeve on courses are extreme dog leg holes, which this does have a few of them. Regardless, I would love to play it again.

I've played the Eagles L:akes and Forest courses many times over the years. This Hot Deal was fantastic. The proshop, cart guys and restaurant staff were superb. Even with all the rain we've had this summer, the Lakes course was pretty dry. The greens were excellent. This is a first class facility that I highly recommend.

The course should have been closed. There were huge puddles all over the course and we actually lost balls in the fairway due to the wetness. We would have left if I could get my money back but due to golfnows policy we had to play. It was a miserable experience.

This course is extremely challenging. Layout challenges all aspects of your game. Course was in great condition even despite recent hot weather. Would highly recommend; however bring some extra balls. Would have enjoyed some distance markers in the driving range/lake.

Being a member of a private club the condition of a course is very important. The condition of the course was very good. Fairways and greens were in nice condition - very green, little brown areas of areas in poor condition. The greens were rolling rather slow but that's not uncommon at public courses. Good value and nice layout. Lakes and mature trees made it pretty scenic. Would recommend to others.
