My first time playing this course and I will definitely be back couldn't find any flaws about this course everything was perfect staff was super friendly course was in mint condition. It's a long course from the white tees which play 6200 but I will be back for sure.

We played the older layout at the Eagles, the Lakes course, and found it very enjoyable. Overall conditions were good, the greens putted great and the fairways were easy to hit off due to thick and consistence turf. Even from the White tees the course has plenty of length. We found the fairways wide enough to receive most tee shots and the areas around the greens are very well maintained. I'm looking forward to returning to The Eagles to try the Forrest course.

Arrived and greeted by fun old started making us laugh and smile. Pro was great and shared information with us about his course and a few other area ones. Lots of blind shots 15 mph wind made the tips very challenging. Played well with 5 birdies between the two of us. Foursome that teed off in front of us never waived us through, playiing all over the US we found this a little unusual. They did play fast but we took our time and still played in under 4 hrs for the two of us. Greens were the best we played in 5 rounds on this trip. Will be back to play the forest course next trip.

Thanks

The Eagles has two course’s

The Forest is, well it say forest tree’s on both sides, so keeping that ball in the fairways is a premium.

You would love it, a few holes dont have that many trees on both sides.

So bust out the driver, but if your 4 iron can push 200 yard or 180, you actually don’t need to bring out the big guns.

I use my 3 five wood and some times my 3 wood in most of the course.

17, and 18, I use the driver just for kicks you really don’t need it.

The lakes is more open, it has lots of lakes, or ponds , on both courses the greens are great!

Driver up! If you want to, but you can play it by using your 3 wood, again up to you, these course is very open.

Have fun! Keep in the short grass!

Fairways were bare in some spots at least the ground was soft for hitting the ball. Greens were fairly slow but rolled true you can be aggressive on putts. Good round all together.

Played this course about 10 yrs ago, was much better then. Lady at the pro shop was rude. Was playing by myself, asked if my wife could ride, was told no, she had to pay $20.00, I payed $24.00 with Golfnow Hot Deal. Staff did not display a friendly attitude.
