Somewhat challenging layout, but always a great time. Golfnow price of $15, not a soul in sight. Greens were immaculate, fairways cut nicely. Easy to find balls from the rough. No complaints! Finished in just over 3 hrs
Conditions were good. Tee boxes a little beat up but greens in good shape. Fairways and bunkers were average. Layout is nice with several doglegs. Large white stakes at the 150 yard mark make for a nice visual target. Finally, GPS in the carts speeds up play.
First time back in several years
Course was in good condition overall. No real grass issues on fairways or greens which were a bit slow, but did roll well. Used to play here regularly, but pricing has kept me away of late. Played on a hot deal and it was a good value. The clubhouse remodel is very nice and overall better maintenance than last time I played.
Poor Customer Service
Upon arrival we were told that the course had just been reseeded, so it was cart path only, during our round it started raining at the turn, so we decided to get a rain check for another day. We were told that because we used GN that no rain check would be issued. I mention that they got there money and was told that they don’t get paid ed from GN. Also they were very rude in there manner and tone of speech.
I was looking forward to playing at the Eagle, I don’t see myself going back due the rude Pro Shop
Quiet and peaceful
Checked in and on the course in minutes. Not many people out so I really got to concentrate on my game. No distractions, just hole after hole of pure enjoyment. The greens and fairways were in really good shape, and I didn't baptize too many balls. All in all, a great place to chill out.
Not maintained in the summer months.
The greens were in decent shape on the front but twice as fast and super dry on the back. Lots of bald spots in the fairways and the rough was basically thin, long grass on top of sandy/dirt like, ground. The staff in the pro shop was nice. The restaurant staff behind the bar was the total opposite.
Eagles golf course
Never ever should have the course open. It was so wet that in some spots, water an inch deep was across the fairway. I finally gave up and did not keep score. I was told when I got in that they should have closed the course and not have anyone playing. I was told that they never close the course. It was travesty.
Don't play if it has rained a week before...
Called the lakes. The lakes were the fairways. Cart path only? No problem, but I felt bad walking on the fairways they were so wet. It was local and relatively cheap for a 715am tee time, but not worth it. I will probably have to buy new shoes after this one... On top of all that they haven't cut anything in a week cause it's so wet. If your ball wasn;t plugged you were looking for it in the shin high rough. And probably some of the slowest greens i've ever played. Course is gimmicky as well, which I didn't mind.
Lakes Course Condition today was unplayable. Fairways were water logged. You were standing in water everywhere. No room for relief trying to play lift clean and place rules. Greens were also saturated. Course management should have offered half off of green fees.
Great Hot Deal. The course has some funky doglegs. Tees need lots of work. Fairways decent, some pretty narrow ones. A few greens on the small size which I liked. Firm and fast. Long par 3s. Rates a 4 out of 5.
First Timer at Eagles Lakes Course
Plenty of grass in the fairways and around the greens. Tee boxes were below average. Nice layout with lakes not coming into play very often. Greens were great for putting but a little firm on approach shots. I would recommend this course for everyone.
