Some of the tees could use work. Greens in much better shape than tees. Fairways cut a little short which may have contributed to dry and hard condition. Round took about 4.5 hours. Started on time but had twosomes behind and in front of our threesome. Carts were good. Lots of bunkers but could use more sand in the green side ones.

Played this course for the first time today. HUGE Mistake.

A 6 hour round under these very less than stellar conditions makes for a very frustrated player.Did not see ONE ranger all day.

Saw a five some on one green. One most of the holes today, there were groups on the green, one in the fairway, and at least 2 groups waiting on each tee box.

Never again.

I played here several months back and was very happy then, but now, my snowbird brother in law is here, so I broke out the big gun and bought us a round. We had a 6:56 tee time, but the fog was a wee bit thick - finally able to tee off at 7:15 - no rush or hurry as we were following a very brave 2-some who we lost sight of in the fog.......can you say FORE!!! My brother in law kept raving about the pace of play, even after the fog lifted, we rarely saw the 2-some the rest of the day. We never saw the 4-some behind us, and finished out round in a little over 3 hours. The greens were fabulous, rolling true and quick. The fairways were nearly as smooth as the greens. The rough was a little gnarly (mowed, but still ball clutching) but you expect that in a Florida course. There are only a few holes with water and a few truly memorable par 3's. The par 5's are beasts. I improved upon my score from the first time playing here and shot a nice 88 with 35 putts. My brother in law shot his best round of the year with a 104 - we are coming back to play here again before Christmas and probably every other week after that - we like to mix things up, but this course is just to good to not play more frequently

Since reading the review from a month ago (30/10/16) from another player and his party who played Eagle Dunes......we also found the condition of the porta potties in the VERY SAME condition.....FILTHY!! Nothing seemed to have been done to clean them up.....we have complained probably four or five times this year to the clubhouse already. We have played there many times and have NEVER seen them clean. We.ve seen cleaner ones on a building site. Come on Eagle Dunes, take action this time before you loose any more players. Your course is very pleasant but your players deserve better on course facilities.

Seriously! We had the 8.30 teetime on Sunday. Paid a premium $47.99 for it. Had a fivesome in front all day. Even with a Ranger on course. So if you want to play fivesomes on Sunday morning I suggest Eagle Dunes is your kind of place. As for me, it'll never happen again.

Eagle Dunes is a nice well conditioned course. It is not that challenging as it is wide open off the tees and there are not many trees lining the fairways. Greens were very nice and could have been a bit faster. If you play don't go in the bunker right of the 18th green you may never get out! Overall a nice course but I like a more classic design.

This is different from many Florida courses that we have played. The greens ran well and you really needed to be near the pin to make a certain two putt. Some interesting water holes and all greens elevated.,. Quite a natural looking course with well placed bunkers. We will definiely go back again.

The staff werre all very friendly.

This was my first time out to Eagle Dunes and I was pleasantly surprised. The layout was phenomenal and a decent challenge from 7,000 yds. Greens were all you could ask for at $40. Smooth, consistent and running in the 10 range for speed. The rough and bunkers could use some TLC and plenty of weed killer, but I had zero issues with tees or fairways.

My only gripe is that we started just before 9 and the round took nearly 5 hours. Our group had its share of struggles, but we still waited on EVERY shot. The ranger came out on the fifth hole, turned around and we never saw him again.
