This course has a very friendly staff and conditions are always good to great. The greens are manicured nicely, along with the fairways. Overall a real good experience, as usual.

This was a repeat play for me. Played a few weeks ago. What I find pleasantly challenging for me is from the blue tees you must place the tee shot with the driver or take the consequences of going through the fairways due to the slight doglegs. Otherwise, as i did, hit 3-woods off the tee for position, even on par 5's #1 and #10. Fairways are little dry so the ball does not sit up well. Greens are new so approach shots do not check as well at this time.

The course has a nice layout---lots of doglegs and water. For long hitters, must play at least blue tees and sometimes 3-wood off the tee is best shot. Greens are firm so watch for run out when chipping. Putting is true as greens are great. Fairways are thin; ball not sitting up but very acceptable. Bunkers are good and well kept. Will be back in Clearwater in a few weeks and look forward to playing it again. Its one of those courses that you need to play a few times to know where to hit it off the tee.

From the tips-

This is a challenging course off the tee box because there are many holes that require a precise tee shot or you'll be left scrambling for your par. Know your target and distances and you'll be in the money. The greens are rolling true and have great speed right now.

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.
