Better of the two muni's in Fort Myers

Eastwood is definitely the better of the two municipals in Fort Myers, as the Fort Myers Country Club course has become as "mini-putt course on steroids" after the reconstruction a few years ago! Conditioning is average, at best, but for $75 that's what you should assume. Some interesting and fun holes, especially on the back side.

Ok for the money

Got out as a single with three others at midday. Fairways are generous, but fairly sparse: need overseeding. Rough is thin as well. Bunkers are very well filled with soft sand and greens roll true. The rates drop at 1:30 and I'll play again. A few too many doglegs for my taste, but the layout is dictated by available land so the architects did a decent job. Staff was friendly and pace of play was 4.5 hours. I was told low lieing areas make play in the wet season a test, unless you like mosquitos.

In need of

Course is long no matter where you play. No frills no thrills at this course. You load and unload your clubs, pick-up your cart with the place locking up at 5, before you finish your round.

People are friendly and helpful so no problem there.

Would play again, but before the snow-birds reek havoc on the course.

Good time

Had a great time playing for the first time of 2016. Course was in good shape except for a few mushy spots. However, phone number in Golf Adviser entry is incorrect. Correct number is 239-321-7487

A Good Venue

Eastwood is one of two courses operated by the city of Ft. Myers and is a much more interesting layout than Ft. Myers C.C. for the same money. Tee boxes were in good shape was were the greens although they were very slow. Bunkers were well-filled and the fairways playable although soft from all of the rain. Kudos to the grounds crew here. Lots of doglegs (or so it seemed). My twosome was paired with an EXTREMELY slow pair of seniors and we were asked very politely to pick up the pace on #8. The pro should get a diplomacy award - - very well handled. Will play again.

Excellent Municipal Facility

This place reminds me of the courses I grew up playing in South Florida as a kid in the 70' - 80's. I've driven by this course many times and it looked like a decent layout, but never looked all that greatly maintained. With the amount of rain they've had this summer, I will say it's recovered quite well. The fairways were soft, but not to the point your ball would plug. The greens were in very good condition. We played the front nine and it was a very nice track. No houses on the entire front nine with plenty of challenging holes. Doglegs left and right, tight treelined fairways, strategic bunkering, forced carries.... pretty much everything. $20 for 9-holes including cart. I would like to walk this course too.

Nice round of golf

When I saw this was public, I just assumed it would be rough. It wasn't. The fairways were fine, as good as any around, and the greens were just fine. Not like 13 on the stimp, but very enjoyable to putt on. I totally enjoyed my round, and the course was just fine condition-wise. A big pleasant surprise after I learned it was public. Will play there again.

This is a top-notch course in terms of value and customer service.

I played Eastwood during a Christmas vacation so was more focused on shaking off the rust during the first few holes than on the course itself. Once I got in the groove, it was easy to see that I was playing on a top-notch track. I had to check my receipt again because I couldn't believe I was playing such a fine course for the amount I paid. The layout was challenging, the fairways were excellent and the pace of play was comfortable. A couple of the greens needed some TLC, but most were in good shape and challenging. I will definitely return to Eastwood. It rivals much more expensive private and/or public courses in the area. The staff was friendly and helpful.
