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.

Too Hot for no H20 on the course

Course had dried out decent considering all the rain. FW, greens and Tee boxes in good shape. Friendly staff good pace of play. COME ON YOU GUYS-PLEASE PUT WATER COOLERS ON THE COURSE. 93 degrees! A few bottles were supplied, but not enough.

The Forest

This course definitely needs a marshal to enforce the pace of play. I followed a foursome on the front 9 who immediately waved me through on hole #3. I caught up to another foursome on the 7th hole who spent more time looking for their lost balls than hitting the ball. They never waved me through I eventually gave up and went home because of them.

Course is not maintained well as before

Grass is too long and many puddles

Many holes are car path only

Great Day on the Forest at The Eagles

I always enjoy playing The Forest at The Eagles. It's a fun short course with wide open fairways. The course is usually in very good condition. Only one green still under repair.

Been many year. Still a good course.

Got a deal on rates due to airation of greens. Like this course a lot. Some fairways are pretty narrow and others you tee off with an iron rather than driver to avoid water. Fun trac.

Good track

Booked this course based on other reviews. Clubhouse was fully stocked and nice. Food/alcohol available in bar/restaurant although we didn’t use that area, it was nice. Was a little disappointed to find out 3rd green was a temporary. It had been redone. Rest of greens were in awesome shape so not sure what happened there but we didn’t find out until after we booked, paid, and were at the course. Starter just signed our receipt and we took ourselves to first tee. He told us nothing. Not hello, nothing about the course, not where to go, absolutely nothing. Course was in great shape. Tees were just ok but fairways and greens were high quality. Would recommend keeping driver in your bag a lot of holes if you are a long hitter or not very straight. Would recommend it and would play again.

Great Course, challeging dog legs

As usual the Summer rain have some effect on the green speed and a few areas but the course is very playable. The many doglegs (and more water than the Lakes Course) require a good bit of course management. The middle of the fairway is very important to getting birdie or even reasonable par putts.

Course was in good shape,Temporary green on hole #3 we were notified at check in. Greens rolled true and a little slow could be aggressive on puts taking the break out of the putt .
