Designed by Ron Garl and Gary Koch, the Forest Course at The Eagles Golf Club features the signature island-green sixth hole which rivals the famous 17th hole at the TPC at Sawgrass. The two outstanding championship courses at The Eagles Golf Club are kept in "tournament condition" year-round. As its name implies, much of Forest course winds through an impressive pine forest.

Perfect for a Thursday

The course was in very good condition A few tee boxes need some TLC but nothing to affect your game.Some greens had some spot that had been top sanded but again nothing major.Nice lay out ,fun to play and it was not crowded so 2 players done in less than 4 hours.
Good value so we will go back for sure

Nice track!

Nice track but pace of play was extremely slow. Couldn’t get into any rhythm playing that slow but besides that it can be very challenging depending on which tee you play and was in good shape for almost December.

Nice course.

Excellent course and very challenging from the blue tees. Greens in great shape and nice and fast. If you spray the ball you may be losing a few golf balls. Lots of water and many tree or home lined holes. Look forward to playing it again in the near future .

Played the forest and pace was great. Looks like they are overseeding the tee boxes and greens. Greens were slow, maybe they didn’t cut from the rain or overseeding, but rolled true. Enjoyed the round and staff was great. Our cart ran out of juice at the turn, but staff came out and swapped carts. Would play again at current rates.

Play somewhere else

For the price you would expect a better manicured course. Tee boxes were overgrown and no sand in bunkers. It's too bad because I love the layout. Better options in Tampa for the price.

Wildlife Galore

The Eagles- Forest is an absolute gem. You truly feel part of nature and the course is laid out beautifully to ensure you feel like you're away from the big city. Expect to see lots of wildlife. Deer, turkeys, gators, and other wild animals can almost be guaranteed.

The course is in fine condition. The fairways are average, and the greens roll on the slow side. There are several challenging holes with forced water carry and are a true test for your average golfer. The course just flows so naturally, almost as if that course was meant to exist in that exact location!

I highly recommend The Eagles- Forest if you ever want to venture out to Odessa, FL!

Slow Greens, some soggy fairways

When dry, this course is fun to play. Not quite there yet. Also some tee boxes still need TLC before the big Winter crowds hit. The greens accepted the ball well but the trueness of the putting was suspect with various speed changes on different greens. The current heat wave requires more water but numerous greens were soggy wet in early afternoon. Never sure whether putt would take the break or stop two feet short on a downhill putt.

Forest Course

Course does not handle water well, so grass cuttings clumped up throughout course, some holes worse than others.
Beverage cart driver not a clue. Drives right at you when hitting with a loud cart.

Overpriced Wet Grassland

Course was in poor shape. I've seen many muni courses in ten times better shape. Greens had tracks in them assumingly from mowers going over wet ground. Green 11 had half the grounds under repair, and of course they cut the hole around that location. Fairways were soggy and people had been taking their carts through which created dirt tracks throughout the course. Also beware as they charge a $20 riders fee in case you wanted to take your boy, significant other or anyone else out there to ride along and not play. They didnt tell us until we were about to tee off.

I emailed the course GM about the experience and I still havent heard back from him... Goes to show you how much they care about their course and customers!

Good for the price

For 35 at noon, it’s probably the best deal you can get around here. Course layout was fun and challenging. Tee boxes and fairways were nothing special, and the greens were frustratingly slow, but they rolled straight. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Overall good experience.
