Designed by Scott Miller, this course is located in the southeastern foothills of the McDowell Mountains and is an innovative departure from the “target” style courses constructed in the desert in the recent past. Its layout takes advantage of a variety of land features: rolling hills, ridgelines, lush valley and washes, with a backdrop of prominent mountain outcroppings. In many instances, long extended views into untouched desert landscapes and area landmarks, such as Camelback Mountain, will be afforded. It is a strategic design, which asks the player to make choices relative to skill level.

Nice layout with tees that brings as much challenge as you wantt to biite off.Great staff and they make a priority of making your round under 4 ours 30 min.The only thing slightly negative was the greens were not very smooth to roll putts on and a few bumpy...otherwise a good experience

Postcard picture views on many holes and plenty of trouble if you miss your target. A few fairways need to green up/fill in a little, but that's to be expected from desert golf. Staff everywhere was helpful and eager to help and the grill is A++.

I plan on returning..

Good course good layout OK condition the people that helped us were very friendly but it was very slow on the second nine. And the food at the turn at 3 o’clock was pretty poor. But it was free so I’m trying not to complain. Overall I enjoyed playing this course exclamation

I have played this course a few times in the past. It has a good layout and some good character. Yesterday I played at the fairways are very dried out. It looked like mid summer conditions, but it is only April 12. I felt the green fees were over priced given the condition of the fairways.

My brother is slightly handicapped with drop foot and has walking issues. While they did give us closer privileges driving closer to the greens, it was more than difficult for him because when you parked to go on to the green every one of them was down a slope of about 60 degrees and were 10 to 20 descents. Thus climbing down and up to the golf cart was an problem. Therefore I do not think it is a course for anyone with handicap issues - particularly those with mobility restrictions..

I always like to play Eagle Mountain when in Scottsdale. Course was in great shape, greens rolling pretty fast but fair. Layout is fun, with lots of mountain elevation changes and scenic tee shots. Views of the valley to the South are spectacular. If you haven't played here before, put it on your list. It's worth the trip. #18 is just awesome.

Not being from AZ and not knowing too much about course maintenance schedules in this part of the country, I always use caution when commenting.

Here is what I witnessed. Painted fairways, beat up fairways, and other little things you don't expect from a golf course during peak season in AZ. The pictures do not match the ones posted on the website and the rough was browned-out, dead looking. The greens rolled well and true which was the only positive.

The course has great views and offers some challenging golf holes with the elevated tees shots and without any GPS on the carts, you have to navigate the old fashioned way with a yardage books and a laser if you have one. Long hitters can pull driver out on every hole.

#14 is one of the better/ challenging par 4's you will play. A good tee shot is required and your approach is quite daunting into an elevated green where plenty can go wrong if it not struck well.

Too many other courses in AZ to play to go back which is a test I think you need to pass if you want to be memorable in this state.

You're better off saving $90 and playing Desert Canyon which is in FAR BETTER shape. Eagle Mountain was a huge disappointment a couple of days ago. Played 36 for my birthday, morning at Desert Canyon for $85 and afternoon at Eagle Mountain for $175. Honestly, you'd think the rates would be flip flopped. I would have paid 175 at DC, no way would I have paid $85 for Eagle Mountain. Greens had dead spots, the rough was dead bermuda (and not a gentle dead yellow but a bright, unsightly yellow like something went wrong with the overseed before winter).. with a bunch of green patches of some natural grass (it looked hideous). The first fairway even had huge patches of sod put in, entire course just dry as a bone, greens hardly held anything they were so firm and dry... NOT WORTH $175... I did get to golf board for the first time though, that was fun. But really... go play Desert Canyon instead. I'm sorry Eagle Mountain, loved you... but I was so angry when I showed up to pay $175 for that garbage.

This course was in horrible shape compared to a lot of other courses. Was told at the pro shop that we were in for a treat, well if a treat means we would be playing on patched fairways with plenty of dirt areas and greens that were missing grass in a lot of areas then yes it was a treat. To charge $165.00 at this time of year and with the course in this shape is robbery, at $85 dollars it still may be too much! Save your money!

While this course features a unique layout and some scenic views, it is not at all worth paying anywhere over $80 for, let alone over $100, like we did. This pictures shown do not provide an honest look of the course, it is BEAT UP, and POORLY MAINTAINED. Many of the greens were missing any type of grass and the fairways were all half dead, and I’m not talking about dormant winter grass. For this time of year, having half of your course cut to dirt, or no grass, isn’t okay for the price they are charging. DO NOT PLAY THIS COURSE IN ITS CURRENT CONDITION.
