Eaglewood Resort & Spa
Located just northwest of Chicago, the Eaglewood Resort & Spa opened for play in 1932. It is a classic championship golf course, built during a time when the long drive was unheard of. The 6,017-yard layout seems short by today's standards, but the course still offers a formidable challenge. It features rolling fairways lined with century-old oak trees and wildly undulating, difficult-to-read greens with varying speeds that fluctuate depending on the weather, season, and even time of day. There are generous landing areas but they are bordered by deep, strategically placed bunkers that are just waiting to swallow even slightly errant shots. The carefully sculpted and plentiful bunkers are a prominent feature of the layout. Eaglewood's scenic landscape also has three lakes that come into play on eight holes.

Course is a great value , is a short course just over 6000 yds from tips but it has a great lay out. Playing it again tomorrow!!!!
Hidden golf gem of Chicagoland.
Great golf course to bring your friends for a quick round of golf. Deceivingly short but the great layout makes it very challenging to play. Greens are fast and well guarded by deep bunkers. The course in general is well maintained with super friendly staff from the pro shop to the grounds keeper. Location is very easily accessible as it is very close to I-290 and 355. Will always comeback to play a round at least once a week as long as weather permitting.
Short and slow
Most par fours are under 300 yards and the pace is very slow considering. Numerous sand bunkers do Protect the Green can make it tricky. Where are the rangers?
Eagle wood golf resort
Great course to play . I feel comfortable playing here . Has some challenging holes with deep bunkers and pitched greens . The course was in great shape .
Nice layout in very good condition
Eagle wood has a few quirky holes, but overall is a good and fair test of your golf skills. The rough is medium length, requiring some strength to dig out your ball, and good tracking skills to find it in the rough. Some holes have tight fairways requiring straight drives. Greens were in pretty good condition, with a few ball marks, but generally much better than most of the public courses in the area. I went back to this course despite a long drive from downtown Chicago because it is among the best courses i’ve played this year in the Chicago area.
Great Putting Greens
A tight course, and challenging. The greens are tough, but you’ll earn every putt - will definitely come back and play again soon.
The course was saturated due to heavy rain the night before. Greens were understandably in below average shape and the fairways were water logged. The tee boxes were uneven but the course has a great layout with bunkers always in play. Weird to have no beverage cart or water on the course on a hot and humid day. Andrea in the restaurant is an excellent server who gave us great guidance on the menu. She also did a great job efficiently working a packed bar area on her own!!
Do Your Job!
Had an 11:20 Tee time, there was no ranger to check us in, I did it myself. There was an outing in front of us and there was no course management at all. Took 45 minutes to play first 2 holes. Spoke to a ranger about pace of play, he told us he spoke with the 2 women 2 holes ahead of us who refused to let anyone play thru. The shared a cart with one bag, and never left the cart path to hit their balls. ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE...
The staff is "wow " supper friendly … Great Place !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My new favorite course
I was very impressed with the Eaglewood course. It is in very good condition and very playable. The greens roll true and are in good condition. Many of the fairways are narrow and require accurate drives. I found the course challenging and was very satisfied with the 86 I shot. A longer hitter might score better, but my short game prowess made up for some shortness off the tee. I plan to play this course again and highly recommend it. This is my first 5 star rating for a course.
Great challenge off the tips... Worth a play. Played first tee time and finished in 2 hours alone in cart.
