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.

Great value for the money and an excellent 19th hole. Not the longest course you will play but it will challenge even the most skilled golfer. Highly recommended.

Highly recommended to play the back tees, it makes a challenging round. If you play the forward tees it is a completely different course and much easier.

Got an incredible deal to play twilight at 3:20pm on Thursday. I should've known it was too good to be true. I was looking forward to having a real shot to finish the round with it not getting dark until 8pm. Unfortunately, I was held up on my start for 20 minutes only to be paired with 3 guys walking... I had a cart. Very poor work by the starter as I really could've been paired with the group that went out in front of us, as everyone was behind schedule thanks to a poor job by the starter. I had to call it quits on 13. Unfortunate because I always have found this course to be a rare hidden gem in the area.

We always enjoy playing here as well and enjoying a refreshment on the 19th hole.. The only problem was the pace of play. we had a 4some in front of us and nobody for at least 2 holes in front of them. Beside that the course was in very good condition for this time of year -- especially the greens

This was our first time playing at eaglewood resort. For this time of year (April) and temps in the 50's the conditions of the course were good. Overall nice course but short. You do not need a driver for most of the par 4's. However it was fun to play.

Unfortunately we waited on each and every hole. We opted to stop after 10 holes as it was no longer any fun.

Perhaps one of the reasons was at the 1st hole where a gent who was "assisting" the starter was verbally pushing us while we were on-deck to move our carts forward about 10 feet WHILE the group was hitting on the tee! A little too much espresso ...

Course is nice and in excellent shape though.

Course was in great condition. Unfortunately air temp. was 95F. Still great time. Bar was way to expensive. Served a Anti Hero in a small glass due to alcohol content....crazy, wonder what thimble a mixed drink will be seved in. 4 beers (1 corona, 1 Anti Hero, 1 Heiniken, 1 Stella) was $29.50, not including tip. That is crazy. Other than that had a great time. Will however avoid the bar.

This course is short but a lot of fun. The greens were tough, but well maintained. Some water, some bunkers and even a few drivable par 4's.

This course is a great value for the money. Your driver isn't really needed here so it's great for working on your irons and short game. The greens were moderate pace, a good amount of slope, and smaller than average. Overall, the course was in great shape and the staff was fantastic.
