About

Type Resort
Par 72
Length 6017 yards
Slope 120
Rating 68.2

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.

We enjoyed the course and the challenging sloped greens. The par 4s that are shorter are well guarded with bunkers and elevations. Late November golf is always a bonus. Will play this course again next year.

No signage

No signs on the entire course telling which hole is what. If you never played here you'll get lose since there no signs.

Short but Fun and Challenging

Short course (6000+) from the tips, but layout and greens make it a challenging course, especially when you don’t hit them straight.

Worth a play if you get a good deal, but otherwise forgettable

Older course on a suburban resort, both of which have probably seen better days. Very tight layout which had us ducking errant tee shots all day. Fair amount of elevation change compared to your standard Chicago course. Very short. Course is a little beat up and many bunkers were dirt. I probably won’t be back.

Should have been on pace of play

I love this course and it was my second time playing it. It's a great layout, challenging greens, great value for the price. However, no one seemed to be monitoring pace of play yesterday (which was surprising, because the first time we played they very much were). There was one group in front of us which was holding back the entire course and only seemed to let one group play through. This led to several instances on the back 9 of us watching their tee shots and waiting for them to clear, only to have the group behind us hit in to us while we were waiting for them to clear the green. On the 18th hole, with the sun setting, they hit their tee shot then stood in the middle of the fairway for about 10 minutes until we finally hit in to them to get them moving. Then when they finally cleared the green we hit our approach shots (now practically in the dark with the last group behind us hitting in to us), and they came back and picked up our balls. That alone was enough to knock 1 star off this particular round since no one was on top of that.
