Rating 75.2

Nestled within the North Woods, White Eagle Golf Club is surrounded by woodlands and wetlands that are home to an abundance of native wildlife. Carved from the hillsides surrounded the St. Croix River Valley, the scenic course is enveloped in a secluded tranquility that is the ideal setting for a relaxing round. The layout utilizes the features of the rolling terrain, creating a test that is challenging but fair. Mature trees frame the course as it winds across the landscape's natural slopes and elevations. Golfers should expect a few tricky uneven lies as well as some hard-to-read greens. There are also a few strategically placed bunkers lurking along the greensides as well as a few water hazards. Water most memorably comes into play on the finishing hole, where a waterfall provides the perfect aiming point.

Must play this one

Very nice course. Well manicured, nice layout, beautiful views some difficulty. No leaves to deal with in the fall since there are quite a few pines near the fairways.
The fairways and greens were in great shape for late in the season. GPS in the cart is a nice touch too.
We got a nice deal on golfnow so we decided to try this course. Would not play it at the regular rate since golfnow has so many great deals elsewhere.

September Glory

The beautiful weather framed the very good experience and the condition and setting of the course - made it almost a perfect golf outing. The greens were fast but yet held some moisture for a good landing surface. Some of the bunker had such soft sand. I am looking forward to heading out again next week - this time with a California friend, who needs a good taste of Midwest golf - and White Eagle will be one of the selected courses. Thank you

Top 10 in Twin Cities Area

Very scenic layout -- generous fairways, fast greens, fantastic "up north" feel, some great risk/reward holes. Last time we played, we had ~7 holes of light but steady rain before being chased into the club house by lightning as we cap up the 9th hole. A group of past & present NHL'ers and former Olympians had the course reserved at 1 o'clock jeopardizing our chances of getting in our final 9 before their event. However they ended up with a few cancellations so they and course management told us we could jump in a ~5 hole gap in their event and play the entire 18. We sat and enjoyed a couple Spotted Cows (WI beer), talked to the bar lady about pirates, and went out and played 18 holes rain free.

Excellent course + entire staff very friendly (pro shop, bar, cart girls, even grounds crew). As a guy who only plays public courses; I'd give WE ~9.9 out of 10, and their staff ~11 out of 10. Bang for the buck, easily one of my favorite places to play!!!

Troy Burne Wanna Be

I played last Saturday. This is a nice course in the Twin Cities area but hardly worth $75. For that price or just a little more you can play Stone Ridge or Troy Burne and get a much better experience.

The greens had just been aerated and yet the manager made no mention of this at the check in. I would have opted to drive up the road and play Bristol Ridge for a similar experience and less money.

White Eagle should take notice that golfers/customers aren't going to play resort rates for a public course.

Club selection

Beautiful 18 holes. Impossible to pick a favorite. If you want to test your skill with club selection, this is the coarse. A long driver(250+) will loose many balls.

Nice big Course

nearly 7200 from the tips. although it was set up to play about 6900. greens were fast and firm but would hold a ball that came in high pretty well. Greens were moderatly quick. It will help to play this coures a couple times to know where not to hit it. Good size greens without too much undulation rewards a good shot. I fond a couple tee shots to be a little bit wonky. Big elevation changes occasionaly require precision off the tee. Very fun track! must play.
