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.

Won’t be back
VERY TIGHT course. Hard to get around. Bad signage. Gimmicky. The greens were in terrible condition imho. The aren’t tending to the traps in the name of covid...but still charging full price. The rangers weren’t out at all pacing. Really really slow 5+ hour 18, super annoying.
Decent course at a good price. Really slow though, and no starter to spread out tee offs. Waited around a lot as the course got backed up.
Really nice course in Itasca that is an equidistant drive from the city, northwest suburbs (vernon hills), and southwest suburbs (naperville).
Beautiful course that is well maintained, fair amount of water, not too much deep woods. The greens were challenging but fun.
A little more than I usually spend on a round of golf but it was a really nice facility and a fun course.
Great course for a weekend golfer
The fairways were in great shape but some of the greens were a little beat up. The sand traps were deeper than most courses that we have played which made them very challenging. We would definitely play this course again!
I guess five somes are allowed
Always a pleasure to play here, fun, but challenging course. However, not sure how a five some was able to play 18-holes, even after reporting to the clubhouse.
perfect green course with not long but some chanlenge
4.5 very good green for a very good round without 3 putts!
Course was fine
Course was fine. Got 15 holes in before it rained. It was a good day.
Where is the Ranger?????
Second time playing the course this year. Although short, like the layout and some holes are very challenging, especially with the large sand traps guarding many of the greens. Only negative and this is directed to fellow golfers - use a divot tool please. The greens have many ball divots that need to be repaired as over time, these unrepaired ball divots on the green will only damage the greens.
Now why the rating is only average. We had an early am tee time on Saturday. We were a twosome behind a foursome of beginners. On hole #8, a par 3, a foursome jumped holes (not sure where they came from) and started to play in front of our foursome ahead of us. Started to really drag and then saw the ranger near 10th tee box. Did not want to be bothered with what we had to say, was only there to see when the grill behind that tee box was going to be ready and we watched him drive up the 16 path and duck into the maintenance area. The beginners foursome in front took the pleasure of treating the back nine like a driving range only to hit numerous balls off each tee per player and then to continue this on all fairway shots. After we finished the par 3 13th, again saw the ranger, again not interested in what we had to say and informed us that the next hole was cart path only. After we hit our tee shots on 14, we noticed the same ranger sitting in his cart in the maintenance area, patrolling the 14th fairway, However, saw many groups in the 14th fairway area and Mr Ranger continuing to sit and do nothing. The weather began to turn on the 15th hole only to see our friendly ranger heading to the Pro Shop. If you have rangers, please tell them their responsibilities. And it is not to hang out and hunt for balls and take advantage of the perks of the course.
Great Course, Needs Respect
I love playing this course, it's easily one of my favorites. However, it needs some TLC. Divots on the fairways (some more like trenches, you guys need some lessons, haha), and unrepaired ball marks on the greens. Come on, these players need to take better care of the course when they play.
Good deal for the average golfer
The course plays quick. Finished in 4 hours. Greens are in poor shape with all the ball marks. Don't understand why guys don't fix them. Nice place food is good.
