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.

Played the Forest course and it was in excellent conditions. From the immaculate tee boxes, through the well manicured fairways, to the perfect greens...the whole experience, especially this time of year here in FL, was great. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to play a great course.

Greens were not smooth and many of the holes seem squeezed in between houses. Too long from blue and too short from white tees. Pace of play VG.

The entire course was in excellent shape. Even though wet, the greens were very fast and quite challenging. We thoroughly enjoyed our round and will definitely return.

I highly recommend this course.

Took the family to The Eagles for a round during the holiday. The course is in good condition and greens are well maintained. My only complaint would be the bunkers are hard and wet underneath the top layer of sand.

Overall course was above average, with the best greens. While the course was not crowded Xmas eve, a twosome slower everything down. No ranger working that day.
