Revisiting Eastlake CC

The course is definitely getting better. The fairways are in the best shape they've been in 20 years. The greens have improved immensely, but are still inconsistent from one green to another. Some roll faster that others, but in much better condition than they've been in a long time. The margins could stand a lot of attention, but that is in an upward trend also. Overall, I think I may consider putting Eastlake back into my rotation of courses, but may reconsider if ownership continues to raise the green fees.

Green

The greens are very erratic. I know they lost them but they seemed sandy and slow

much improved

Eastlake was in much improved condition. The greens haven't been this good in years. The bunkers are excellent when the group in front of you rakes them properly. The fairways are a little spotty but that's Southern California golf. The staff is always friendly. It was a great day of golf on a very warm day.

on the upswing

I've played here several times this year and the conditions have improved every time. The new greens still play a little differently than the original ones but the consistency issue is lessening. Definitely worth a visit.

They are working hard to get the greens to be consistent but it will take a little more time. The course is getting close to being in great shape

No breaks Eastlake

Some greens needs to be worked on. Grass too tall and slow. Did not break at all when it should. Sign of poor grass maintenance and conditions.
Fairways are average. Rough is challenging due to thick grass. Bunkers are and hazards are fair.
Overall a fair-good course since layout is fun.

Happy Memorial Day

The course played nice today. Pace was a little slow, but could’ve been due to the holiday. Been playing the course for at least 10 years and this is the best condition I’ve seen it in .

Greens are not the same

Tbh if it was not for the nice fairways, it would be a one star. None of the greens are the same. If you trying to Into tournament shape. This place will not help you as far as putting goes. But it was also 10 dollars. Would not pay anymore.

Coming around nicely

Played on Mother's Day so pace was crazy. Greens were weirdly inconsistent as they openly advise due to ongoing upgrade process. If the slow greens turn into the normal ones it will be a course strength. Fairways good. Tee boxes fine. I'd like to see a little more attention to the margins of the course but that's picking nits. Ok to put back into your course rotation.

Great time at Eastlake

Haven’t played Eastlake in about 15 years. Course was better than I remembered. Refreshing to actually see green fairways on a course in SD that wasn’t super expensive. Everyone was super friendly. Got out right before some kind of tourney so pace was great too. Great fun. Thank you!

Almost back

Eastlake is almost back to being great again! A lot of work has gone into bringing this course back to glory and it’s starting show. First time I’ve played the course in almost 2 years and it was worth the wait. Course should be in tip top shape in about 2-3 weeks. Will definitely be back soon!
