Eastwood is coming back and management is certainly putting money back into the course. Greens are all new and roll true, some still have work to do, but overall fantastic. They are working on the bunkers which still need some work, but progress is being made. For the money, this was a fantastic round! I will be back

So, after years of reading negative reviews about this course, I finally mustered up the nerve to actually take the drive and go see and play it for myself, on the last day of 2017. To say that I'm glad that I did, would be the understatement of the year. I was actually blown away at how beautiful this course is, and the excellent courtesies extended by the staff, from the first contact to the last. This is the kind of customer service that you would expect at some of the more high-end, "high cotton" courses in the area. I was truly impressed. Kudos! But I digress. Let's talk about the course itself.

The general layout of the course is amazing and although it is under obvious repair, that did not detract in any way from its playability. Seeing all the wildlife and the natural forestry that bound the entire course, is truly welcomed, especially since it sits in a neighborhood and so close to the urban core. Expect to find fairways with their fair share of undulations and bordered with mounds and/or wooded areas, and interspersed with water with forced carries, which only adds to the challenge that the course presents. You have to actually strategize your play on almost every hole, and don't just grab your driver on every tee. Oh, and how could I forget the extreme dog-legged fairways. Did I say that this course offers challenges? The greens are definitely some of the better ones that I have played in a long time (some of them are obviously being repaired/improved on, so expect some temporary blemishes as far as that goes, but in a few months everything should be fine). Expect to find greens are firm, nice and fast, with a generous amount of breaks, ridges and slopes.

Last point: If you haven't yet or it might have been a while since, do yourself a favor and just go play this course and form your own opinion, you will most likely be a convert too. Disregard the negative reviews. Yes, improvements are afoot, and so I can just imagine how much more pristine this track will be in say, the spring of 2018, and on. The price on GolfNow makes it an even more compelling value. I went there as a solo player, but hooked up with two of the nicest gentlemen, Ottley [sp] and Warren, who seem to play this course a lot and know of its nuances and were kind enough to point them out to me, "thank you!". I will most definitely be a regular at Eastwood from now on, it is absolutely worth the drive!

Before playing here I read several negative reviews from earlier in the year. When we arrived I was told they just finished installing all new greens. Although the greens are still a little patchy, they should be great in a month or so. Putting was fine unless you end up behind a bare patch which has not yet filled in. Fairways were nicely mowed. First cut of rough was a little long in places (we found probably a half dozen balls in the rough on our round). Sand traps are still somewhat grown in, but you can tell they are really trying to bring the course back. Staff is super friendly. We’ll come back again for another round.

Who ever the people are that run the pro shop are probably part of the reason the course is in such poor, poor shape! The owners of the course would serve themselves to replace the help with more competent and customer friendly people!!!!!!!! I understood the greens were all replaced over the last 6 months but several are STILL in very poor shape.

Finally the owner is putting money into this course. Back nine greens are new and they are very nice. Front nine are new as well but still are about 2 months behind back nine greens. Driving range is average and now in good shape. This is great layout; I would recommend this as still a C course. However , in 2-3 months it should be worth playing. It was in such bad shape for so long they are having to over come dealing with weeds in rough and ant problems everywhere. But ole Eastwood is showing signs of life after 4-5 years of being a disaster.

It’s a pretty course, but they have a terrible ant problem. There patches where you could see red ant hills on the tee boxes. You have to look down when you walk on the fairways and tee boxes to avoid stepping on ant hills. Though l was very careful, l was still bit and had to leave the course after 8 holes.

The folks at Eastwood seem to have it figured out. The new greens roll the best they ever have in the 17 years I've been playing here. If they keep working on the course and can maintain the greens, Eastwood will once again become a "must play" course for those living in and visiting the Orlando area.

Probably the worst golf course in the state of Florida. Greens were just redone and they are far from being playable. Bunkers are not playable and it doesn't look like they put any fertilizer on the rest of the course. Sad when a course that has potential is not maintained properly.
