Well, Eastwood used to be my favorite course but it's since fallen from glory and is just a literal overgrown shadow of its former self. Perhaps the owners/staff are trying to rehabilitate it, perhaps not, but the greens were shut down for rehab, although many looked fine. This meant that the new green was the end of the fairway, where they just dug a hole and called it the de facto green that were also overgrown and impossible to put on really. The bunkers were overgrown with weeds. The drainage of the fairways was so poor that hitting off the tee, your ball would make an impact crater and be covered by overgrowth. I lost several balls that split the fairway because I simply could not find them amongst the grass. Others must've done the same, as I'd find balls about every 3 holes lying in plain view. Half of the bridges were in such disrepair I thought driving over them in the cart would collapse it and make us gator food. Many of the cart paths had tree limbs laying next to it, good that they're trying to clear it, stupid that they didn't just throw the limb back into the woods, really unprofessional. All that said, I really want this course to make a comeback. I absolutely love the layout and feel of the course. From the wooded theme to the great variety of holes, and even some impressive and interesting elevation changes (17th hole in particular), Eastwood is one of my first and favorite courses to play. At this point the neglect has simply taken over, and I don't think I will return for a few months, at least until the rainy season ends so you can actually play without slopping around. Please don't give up Eastwood! I don't want to see you go!

Even at only $10 w/ cart included I would not play here again. I played here in the past but it has really gone down hill! Didn't catch the notification that they had temporary greens until we were told at the club. Temp green means a hole in the ground and none of the grass is cut. Didn't even bother to take my putter out one single hole! The course is green thanks to all the rain but they don't cut the grass! We were losing balls in the middle of the fairway! Because of the temp greens and new tee box placement, you lose at least 60 yards on each par 3. Someone was leaving as we started and he said "Enjoy your round at Weedwood" . The ant were worse that the weeds, they were everywhere in large mounds. Save you money!

The staff is working at making this course a better place to play. After years of neglect, temporary greens are in place and newly seeded and improved greens will be in place by mid-October. Although the grass in the fairways is even, it is deep enough to lose a ball (or in my case - 2 on the same hole). Incessant rains have made some cutting difficult. Not excuses, explanations.

This is the worst course I have ever played. I'm not speaking about the green being under repair which is understandable. But the fairways remind me of a cow pasture minus the patties and they were in swampy conditions due to por or no drainage. I would not recommend this course to my worst enemy. I would close this course and repair to resemble a golf course.

Course is full length from tee box to greens, but the putting greens are not maintained. It's a good course for practicing of the tee, fairway shots, and chipping. But again...no putting.

Upon arrival we were informed that the course was going to have new grass put in later on in the year, which obviously meant to not expect the most beautiful landscape that day. But apparently to them, it meant that they could completely give up on maintenance until then. The fairways had longer grass than what you'd find on most course's roughs, which not only crucially altered our iron game, but also caused us to spend way too long of time searching for a well hit ball every other shot (often giving up the search and calling it a lost ball IN THE FAIRWAY). The greens were also unbearably dirt patch ridden and the bunkers often had grass growing out of them. I don't care how good the renovations later on in the year turn out, if you allow your customers to play on a disgusting course in the mean time at full price, then that says a lot about the character of the people running the course; I will be leading people away from this course and never returning.

Uncut fairways

Grass growing in bunkers

Major areas of grass missing on greens

I play this course about 10 years ago and it was fantastic so I decided to go back. The course is laid out beautifully it has some challenging holes but for an average golfer it is a perfect set up. What I found though is a course that is in need of some major TLC. The fairways We're uncut in some areas because the grass is been so long when it was cut had major clippings everywhere. The greens were the biggest disappointment along with the bunkers.

$25 for a Saturday morning in June isn't a bad rate but the conditions of the greens were awful. Patches of grass poking through, patches of sand, etc. Impossible to read and play a putt. Tee boxes and fairways were in good condition. Pro shop said new greens will be put in by August. I wouldn't bother going back there until then.

Without a doubt the worst course I've ever seen. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were full of weeds, sand, dirt etc. Sand traps had almost as much grass in them as the fairway. It's obvious this course hasn't been taken care of in months. Spend the $5-$10 extra and go somewhere that actually resembles a golf course.

Tee boxes are over run with crabgrass and sand. Fairways and greens are no different. Bunkers are also in very poor shape, most with weeds and grass in them. To be fair I only paid $10 on a GolfNow special but you absolutley get what you pay for with that price.

I've been playing this course on and off for years. The condition of the course this time was not good. Fairways were brown and needed care, there were weeds growing in the bunkers and the greens have something other than grass growing in them. It's bad when you keep telling yourself "well we only paid $20.00 so what do we expect".

Easily the worst kept course I've ever played or seen. I went against my doubt of the 2 star rating and $9 tee off and played anyways, but I wish I hadn't. It looked like the course had been closed for about 15 years, they cut the "grass", and re-opened. I just don't understand why or how it's still open. Don't waste your time and money here!
