Eaglecrest Golf Club
Taking its name from the majestic birds that can frequently be seen flying overhead, Eaglecrest is rich in history, dating back to the 1920’s when it was developed from a large estate. A royal visit by then Princess Elizabeth in 1951 is a highlight of its storied past. Several of the original buildings from the estate are protected and are still in use today.
Possessing a variety of challenges over its eighteen fairways, the first three holes are fairly open and introduce you gently to this lush, park-like course. Difficulty arises quickly from the fourth tee box, where a rather narrow landing area awaits big hitters, with water on the left and out of bounds on the right. Laying up with a long iron is the sensible play here. The middle holes wind through fir and cedar-lined fairways, with a variety of doglegs and ponds to keep you focused. The par five fourteenth at 509 yards from the whites is a challenge not to be taken lightly. Lined by lakes on both sides, with a huge pot bunker guarding the green, you’ll do well to make par here. The 403-yard seventeenth is also a test with its undulating fairways and slippery four-tiered green.
After your round, be sure to visit the historic clubhouse, 9,000 square feet and built from hand-hewn logs. Our aim at Eaglecrest is to provide excellent value at reasonable prices in an outstanding setting. Whether planning a dinner out, a banquet, or a golf game, we are sure you will enjoy your visit to Eaglecrest Golf Club.

Awesome greens, lots of houses
This golf course features the best greens in the mid-Island area. True and fast! A very pretty setting that is stretched out, around and through many different golf course neighbourhoods. Bad slices and pulls can impact houses, patio furniture, etc.
If you're able to keep your shots under decent control for the most part, there's little to fear.
Interestingly, because of the layout, a 9 hole round is actually 13 holes! Twilight rounds here are superb, especially if you find yourself coming down the 18th fairway about 30 - 60 minutes before sundown. The distant views are stellar. :)
