This is a course that requires you to place a shot. It's a challenging but fun course and has a nice view along the way. Pack something to eat if you're playing afternoons because the little hotdog stand isn't always there and you don't pass the clubhouse when you make the turn from 9 to 10.

Greens were awesome and true rolled great! Fairways and tee boxes were in very good condition, great value for your money and you will definitely want to come back! First time playing this course and the only drawback would just be the amount of leaves on the course which is not really much of an issue! I'll be sure to come back! Great course! For under 50$

I really like this course. The layout makes for a challenging but fun round of golf. The fairways are a little tight both in size and condition. Greens are in good shape and receptive to spin from different shots, within reason.

overall course was ok There were not a lot of yardages marked and very few things to tell you distances other than 200, 150, and 100 yard markings.

Tee yardages were not marked and this created some second guessing

Very enjoyable golf, all greens are elevated (finally), bunker sand perfect, greens rolled true but minimal brakes (good? bad? .. you decide). Golf starter almost ruined the day; he was abrupt, snarly, arrogant. Pro shop staff and clubhouse server excellent. Very good to excellent rating.

Challenging for high handicap players. The course was in nice condition. The weather did not cooperate. We waited out about an hour of heavy rain and continued our round after the rain ended. We hope to play it again in better weather conditions.

This was my first time playing Eagles lake course, and if I was in the area longer or had heard about it sooner, I would have played many more rounds. Very nice layout, with just the right amount of water in play..greens were very nice, but fast.

Played the Lakes. It seems as though every green is elevated, usually with one or two bunkers in front. The greens were very well manicured, but were hard and did not hold. Several shots that looked good bounced over the green. Some holes in the layout looked weird, like #10, almost a horseshoe shape around a lake. A lot of tee shots felt like target golf, and sometimes hard bounces ended up in trouble. Staff was great and friendly

The course is a very nice and it's only 15 to 20 minutes from Tampa. The course wasn't in the greatest condition, but I think that's mainly from the colder weather in January and February. The course is challenging with a fair amount of dog legs and narrow fairways, so you definitively want to hit the ball straight! Greens were in good condition and offered a nice roll. I would recommend this course.

Friendly greeting at bag drop. Arrived early, not busy got on right away as 2 some. Greens nice, fairways wet in spots from overnite rain. Other wise they were not great from the dry spell over the last few months.. Just bump the ball to find a spot ,all is good. Would take friends there.
