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.

Nice layout

Practice range was interesting. Hitting into a lake. Starter was very friendly. Course layout was great. Always moving forward never seeing the previous hole. (Doesn't seem to zig zag) lots of fun holes.. some wide open driving holes, some requiring smart placement. A few dead spots on some greens but very small not affecting play.. Looking forward to playing it again. Well worth the drive and money.

I've seen it better

The course is not one you want to play after any type of all day rain, it does not drain well so we had cart path only all day, which surprisingly didn't slow us down too much. The course is a fantastic mix of holes that I've loved playing over the past 6yrs, this year the course has gone down a little bit, but the greens make up for it, they are rolling nicely.
Overall I would suggest playing the course and the guys in the proshop are helpful in getting you out.

Course Conditions Have Tanked

I usually try to play the Lakes side because The Forest gets so much traffic and abuse. The tee boxes are sand/dirt pits. This past weekend I went so far as to equate the course conditions to Northdale. Sadly, both are in bad shape but The Forest wants to charge more than other courses around ... even more than the other 18 it maintains in The Lakes? The Forest course is worth no more than $30 a round. The greens are in good shape but even they are showing signs of distress.

Absolutely Perfect

We played the Forest Course and it lived up to the hype. Very challenging layout super fast greens. Couldn’t ask for any better. Next time we’ll play the Lakes Course. Definitely makes The Eagles a regular stop.

Great course to play

The forest course at the Eagles club is a fun, challenging course for all skill levels. The fairways and greens are in beautiful shape. The track layout is fun with lots of doglegs and plenty of challenging bunkers and hazards. Even on a Sunday we played in three and a half hours and were not pushed or held up. I try to play this course when ever I can. There is also lots of wildlife and waterfowl out here to make you feel like your away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A great relaxing place to play.

Awesome

Course in excellent condition. Greens fast and firm. Had a discount thru TeeOff clubhouse guy had to physically see my ID or confirmation #. I could not read it to him. That was a first. Maybe he was having a bad day.

Great Fathers Day Afternoon!!!

Joined up with three other guys I didn't know to have a very enjoyable round of golf and enjoying a beautiful day on a scenic golf course. Shot a good score and ended up with far more balls than I lost!! Saw turkeys twice and also deer twice during the afternoon outing!!
Highly recommend both Eagles courses!!!

Surprised at the conditions

This course used to be maintained very. Today’s round was somewhat disappointing. Fairways had a lot of weeds, cow pasture like. Some tee boxes were in very poor condition. The greens were ok. I like the course but overall disappointed in it’s condition.
