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 Course

Nice course offers a bit of challenge more so when conditions are wet like today. Greens are nice but were slow due to wetness. Lots of deers around. Would play again.

UNSEEN EAGLES

Just played Eagles (Forest) today. Been here many times before and I am always pleasantly pleased. It all starts with the friendly staff. Carts have gps, complimentary waters, ball and club cleaner. Unheard of in the higher end places that charge triple the amount in the same state.
Course is always fun and challenging for all levels. Tee boxes need help but they are working on it. Many changes to the club house almost complete. It's a gem of a course. Get out and play!

Fantastic As Always

Played Eagles Course (Forest Course) solo today.

Course was in fantastic shape as always and very clean. Pace of play was great (made it through 18 in just under 3 hours).

Saw some very cool wildlife while playing including deer, cranes, and one of the biggest gators I’ve ever seen in years.

Hesitant to give such a glowing review since I would like to keep this place all for myself :)

Eagle forest course. Will play it again

Overseeing showing signs of growth, lots of maintenance under way (bug issue being addressed) greens were true (with few exceptions) a few tee boxes still need some care (and seed growing time). Had a great day on the house, will definitely play it again

Coming along fine

Having never played here before, it was quite interesting seeing the upgrades that are currently being done. Lots of new sod, sand and features. Greens were very good but some of the tee boxes were in need of help (which seems to be happening). New clubhouse is very nice! A good experience and a beautiful day!

Awesome layout

Fairways not too consistent, Bermuda rough creeping into fairways here and there, but layout is excellent, greens we're good, not as firm as I like, but rolled good. Pace was excellent 3 hrs. 45 min. Staff everywhere is friendly. Highly recommend

What Happened?

I used to play this course a lot back 2002-03. I made a visit back as we have moved back to Tampa area. It was hard to find a grassy flat spot to hit on the practice tee. Tee boxes were either bare -- like trying to get footing in a bunker or newly and poorly sodded. trying to get a good footing was nearly impossible. May be conditions will improve to warrant the $58 green fee but definitely not worth the money today.

Nice course but a few problems

The Forest course is a nice layout with variety to make it interesting to play. Two things were negatives. 1. the greens were a bit bumpy so many were quite slow without a true roll. 2. Overwatering on tee boxes and some other areas made course feel far wetter than it should have been. You should not be slipping and sliding on tee boxes in dry weather

Better out there

Tee boxes were in HORRIBLE condition. Greens were so full of sand, the ball left a trail. Fairways were average at best. Honestly I would have rather played Silver Dollar, even with the Shot gun sounds. Very disappointed with the “prestigious 0 Eagles. Boo!
