Eagle Springs Golf Course (formerly known as DeFuniak Springs Country Club) is Walton County's oldest course and one of the panhandle area's most challenging. The golf course sprawls across rolling hills covered with pine forests and five spring-fed lakes, both of which come into play throughout the course. Sandy scrub brush and colorful flowering bushes accent the landscape even further. The towering trees lining the tight fairways are just some of the many challenging natural hazards. There are also 23 strategically placed sand traps throughout. The small, elevated greens are pitched and undulated in such a manner that would make even the best putters nervous. The rolling elevations also provide picturesque views from nearly every point on golf course. Eagle Springs Golf Course requires accuracy and careful course management, but the layout is still surprisingly accessible for a range of skill levels. As part of recent initiatives and upgrades to the property and management, kids under 15 play free.

Don’t play in the winter

The golf course layout on the scorecard the numbers need to be little you had to look at them through a magnifying glass too small. All the holes need to be numbered we had a hard time trying to find number five. The tea boxes are in great shape the greens are in great shape the fairway greens were OK. I am thinking you guys might want to look into getting a electric carts instead of diesel carts because of the smell and the way the car is handled. Other than that bring your A game all the greens are elevated

Improved dramatically!

I grew up on this golf course, so i have seen it in some very rough shape. It had been about two months since i played last so i went out, and the course was so much better than what i had become accustom to. You can really tell the amount of hard work that has been put into the golf course lately.

Better shape

I have played this coursevsince I was 13 years old. I have seen this course in great shape and I have seen it at its lowest. I am glad the county has purchased the course. They are doing great things. I have been playing it weekly and you can see the changes and the work they are doing. It has come along way since April. Keep up the great work.

Great changes course purchased by WALTON County

Fairways are in excellent condition. Amazing what fertilizer and water will do. Most greens are in good shape. All are improving with the fertilizer and water being added. This course need some tender loving care. It is now getting lots of it. Course has all new equipment and professional Superintendant and assistant superintendent. If you have played this course in the past you will not recognize it now. The metamorphosis is amazing to see.

Haven't played a course with so much imprvement. Fairways are fantastic. For the costs I'd play their every day. Staff as friendly as it gets. Greens are as good as anywhere,i I mean fantastic. So for you people who wrote bad reviews I suggest you come back and check it out again. Unbelievable the improvements..
