Greens wwre a bit slow and a few bare spots on the fairways and some very tight lies. Played the back tees and its a pretty good challenge from there.

Played early in the morning and the course was enveloped in fog for the first nine holes. Nontheless, we finished the round in about 3 1/2 hours on a Saturday morning. The course is not so difficult (when you have a clear view of each hole) and the greens are consistent even if not very fast.

Tee boxes in great shape and well maintained, fairways good for this time of the season, greens are beautiful but on the slower side. The course is a fair test from any tee box you need to play. Friendly and helpful staff made this a great experience. Our 4 some agreed this was a great value and would recommend it to anyone to add to their good places to play list.

Unfortunately I showed up just in time to pay and play. No time to warm up. It was a foggy morning and playing my myself made it tough to track my ball. Really nice looking course with mature trees and greens in great shape. Fairways were good but a little thin, guess that's Florida golf this time of year.

Being able to shape shots off the tee really helps because the holes bend in both directions and the view from the tee box can seem narrow if you can only shape it one way.

They have 2 courses and when making the turn it is difficult to determine where the 10th hole is for the Lakes course. All the signs on the front nine are marked Lakes but the back nine are marked Eagles.

Always a good time at The Eagles Golf Course, whether it's the Lakes or The Forest this course is fun and challenging.

The pace of play was a bit slow, but at this time of year it's to be expected. Look forward to my next visit.

Great course and very good value. All the holes were fair but not easy. Greens were true and all were elevated. I would like to come back later in the spring when the course grows in to regular conditions.

Depending upon Tee selection (gold to black) degree of difficulty is easy to difficult.

Age plays a factor on selection.

Also a starter would help.
