Exciting layout. Lots of ups and downs, which I enjoy. Similar to Keystone River with the forced carries and good views along the river/into the high country. This course's best quality is it feels like a other high end resorts at a much lower price. I wouldn't make a habit of playing here for the standard rate, but at $55 with a cart it was a great call.

The course was well maintained for late summer play. Greens were fast and smooth. They were also hard and many ran away down the hills, so stopping the ball on the green meant bouncing it on at times. Overall, we did not care for the course design. Due to the limitations of the mountain landscape, we played some holes that were, well "unusual". The staff was fairly young and not well trained and the club house facilities were on the lean side. You have to leave your things in your cart as carts are not allowed down to the driving range. They have a shuttle for that. It is a busy place and you will not be able to see you valuables, so we'd recommend that you don't leave them in the cart. We will look for other places to play when we return to the area.

This course has to be in my top five. The first 8 holes are pretty normal for a course in located in the mountains. A few elevation changes, streams, trees etc. The last 10 holes are well laid out with many beautiful views, extreme elevation changes, forced carries and just a whole lot of fun. The course conditions were excellent and almost all the greens and something to make your knees knock. We saw Marmot and deer while playing

This is a beautiful course. Unfortunately, we didn't know that 8 holes were closed and the 10 that were open had recently been aerated from tee to green. I'd like to play it when all holes are open and not aerated

Eagle Vail is a great golf course from tee to green. Some of the most unique holes I have ever played and tons of elevation change. This is one of my favorite mountain courses and even at $100 I'd recommend playing. Occasionally a little slow on weekends but just enjoy the round.

The course is very nice, but a bit pricey, but given the short golf season, that has to be the case. Played in the mid afternoon and the last 3-4 holes in the shade of the mountain actually was getting cool (6:30-7:30) despite being warm in the sun. The course was in good condition - I"ve seen it better as well as worse.<br/> I always enjoy playing EVGC.

Good public course, reasonably priced. 4 stars above, but really I would say 3 1/2. Played twice in a 2 week period. I live (and play) in a hilly area, so the elevation changes weren't an issue. Course was in good condition, and has some very pretty views. Problem is that a few of the holes are needlessly tricked up (like number 9), and some of the greens have silly slopes (like number 17). That said, had a good time. My wife, who is a beginner, enjoyed it.

If you like challenges and measured accurate shot production requirements this is the course for you. However, as an example the 16th hole green is diabolical ...my second shot into this green was pin high. Yet the ball hesitated then very slowly started rolling backwards picking up speed into a bowl then continuing over a wall and into a stream. Don't ask what I said...
