Great course

Everything is awesome on this course. The clean parking lot, to the friendly staff and well stocked pro shop to the beautiful fairways and receptive greens.

Letting It Go

I signed up to play the Eagle course but when I arrived there was a tournament on it. We were sent out on the Falcon. The Falcon doesn't get the care that the Eagle does. I you go make sure you book the falcon and call the course to make sure, if I had known I wouldn't have gone.

Very Poor Conditions -

If you like weeds and lots of weeds this is it. The fairways are overcome with weeds, very poor lies. The greens are also filled with weeds and the Bermuda is slow and grainy. The bunkers are poorly maintained, many different types of sand, and surrounded by weeds.

Step two strides out of the fairway and your ether in deep weeds or dirt and weeds. Poor T pads.

Details on GOLFNOW are bogus. No such tees exist and the slopes have never been this high.

The course green surrounds were rebuilt in 2008 and in no way resemble the original William B Langford design. The tee colors and placement of many were changed as well. GOLFNOW should ensure their information is correct.

The course is a niece military course but conditions are usually marginal. The price is right and a good course to play. I recommend it.

Enjoyable Round of Golf

We played mid-day and the course wasn't very busy so we got around well under 4 hours. From the gold tees it's a challenging layout with hilly and sloping terrain, so you need to think about your shots before firing away. Fairway conditions were ok and the greens putted nicely - the rough was well, rough. Lots of trees so there's a premium on accuracy. It's not a resort course but it's convenient to the Niceville area and a fun course to go and work on your game. I'd play it again.

Nice layout. Very hilly; wouldn't want to walk it. Very tiring just riding it. Greens very hard; would not hold a shot, even a short iron. Pretty good condition otherwise. Took over four hours; never saw a marshal. I'd give it 2 1/2 stars.

Eglin AFB courses

Both Falcon and Eagle courses are beautiful, challenging, and a bargain after 2 PM. Greens in great condition but oh so tricky! Fighter jets playing tag above seemed to be putting on a show for us. Awesome.

Drawbacks: each 9 does not end at the clubhouse, so bring your own refreshments, no roving beer girls either which is just as well, hard to find any attendant in the bar/restaurant. Toilets on the course are plentiful but have no lights, relying instead on skylights which are dirty and obscured. Bring a flashlight or cell phone light! Minor stuff, just love these courses!

Off Kilter

Strange course. Some interesting holes and very good setting for a course. However, a few holes were so tilted that even drives hit totally to one side would end up on the other extreme after roll. Some very dry and unkempt areas off fairways. Some patchy greens, though design of greens was interesting and challenging. Course staff very welcoming. Cart pick up and drop off somewhat awkward..

All the greens were leveled and rebuilt in 2008. Sad to see historical William B Langford greens destroyed. Welcome to modern greens.

conditions were not where it was enjoyable to play.

At the early morning tee time the winds were gusting as high as 30 miles per hour. It was also cold. We asked if it would be possible to play when it was playable and the said no. We tried a couple holes and it was not enjoyable in any way.

I was pretty upset because we had been to the course a couple times in the afternoon and the course was wide open. but they would not let us try it at a time when the weather was a bit better. I will never go back.

Elevation changes. In Florida!

Great challenging layout. Multiple tee options for all abilities. Surprising elevation changes for Florida. Dormant grass in January allows for lots of roll and limited rough. Staff was exceptionally friendly and welcoming. A great value. Will certainly be back!!

7:00am Tee Time Not Available to Golf Now customers

Despite reserving a 7:00 tee time through Golf Now we were told upon arrival that we would have to wait for the "Gaggle" to go infant of us and that according to the fine print they did not have to get us off on time. Not a real problem but the Desk person was overly forceful reference this and made more of issue than it had to be. Suggest either Golf Now change what tee times they offer or get Eglin to honor their agreement with Golf Now. Otherwise the course was in great shape!!!!!

Play it

This course is amazing, you would think you're playing golf 15 hours north of it. The condition was pretty good, the greens were punched not to long ago but they still rolled pretty well. The views are absolutely breathtaking, just an unbelievable golf course, so good i stopped in the pro shop on my way out and made a tee time for tomorrow

Poor

Greens were adequate but the fairways were like a cow pasture. Fairways were like a tightly mowed rough. Bathrooms on course were but the aircraft from the AFB was neat to watch. Would not recommend playing it.

Nice Challenge, Lots of Elevation Changes

A bit of a departure from the mostly flat courses found in Destin. Similar to a typical muni, although the greens were in better shape. A lot of elevation changes make for a fun alternative to the generally flat layouts you find elsewhere along the coast. We played from the middle tees (about 6400 yds), which is a little longer than the other tracks we generally play. Unfortunately, the next set only measure 5500 yds. Some of the fairways were a little ragged, but we played in the afternoon for $30, and the course is an excellent value at that price. I'd definitely play it again.

Eglin Eagle

We played this course today and found it really nice. The course is hilly and can be quite challenging as a lot of the shots are completely blind. Some directionally poles or guides would be REALLY nice here. Bunkers were not well kept which surprised me a LOT, due to the heavy rain the last few days they were very compacted and like wet cement. However the greens were very shortly cut and slow but rolled out nicely. I would definitely like to play this course again now that I know where I'm going!!!
