Great layout...what a shame
I/we say “what a shame” as were excited to play this course for the first time. The staff was very nice and layout was fun. Unfortunately, that is where the positives end. The condition of the majority of the course was very poor. Most of the traps were unplayable (see pictures) and tee boxes were in awful condition. I/we hope they put some TLC and money into this facility but we will not be back until this happens.
Wow! This course has a fantastic layout and was undoubtedly great in the past. However, with the recent drought the conditions have become extremely unfavorable to say the least. It was so easy to lose a ball in what was supposed to be the fairway but has becomes overgrown native grasses/weeds. The greens were in decent shape making them, the staff and the facilities the highlights. At this time, we cannot recommend the course.
Very unfortunate state of disrepair
20 years ago I played this course for the first time. Back then it was a very good course. The layout is fair to good. That hasn't changed. Unfortunately every thing else has. The fairways are mowed, but seem like plain yard-grass, with some being crabgrass and clover filled. The bunkers have no sand, they're just dry dirt and weeds. There is no real first cut of rough. The rough is unkempt and, in some places, 3-4 inches high just feet off of the fairway. The greens are so slow that they're almost unplayable. Some of the holes have grass growing over the cup (looks like the haven't been moved in a month).
I was hopeful the new ownership would get things in order. That's not happening. Avoid this course unless you get a deal for less than $15.
The only positive is that the pro-shop staff is very friendly.
My guess is that the couse will close and the land developed for residential construction.
The entire Eagle Pointe resort, including the golf course, has taken a hit due to recent tax issues. That being said, what remains is fun but challenging layout with well-kept, fast-running greens. The bunkers are in disrepair and the fairways may need a little mowing, but you'll get a very solid round of golf for $30. Would definitely do it again. Also, I for one want to see this course survive and return to its old self.
Playin' the Pointe
Friendly staff in the pro shop and halfway house. Some patchy spots in the fairways but overall the course was in good shape. The greens seemed a little slow but the humidity was high. I was Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde on the course with 2 triples and 3 birdies.
Alot of potential for this course. New owner is fixing bunkers and waterfalls. Once complete will be a beautiful course. Very challenging, plenty of bunkers,water, long holes and dawg legs. Little bit of everything. Greens were very fast but great shape.
Pretty Good Course in Bloomington Area
Starting with the Pro's, course has some pretty long par 5's which I like, they just got brand new Carts this year (2017), and with the golf now app price being $12 it is hard to beat. (Compared to all courses around the Bloomington area)
Cons are that the sand traps were not sand at all and probably have not been worked on since last year, if you do not use golf now the rates are around $36 during the week, Also when we teed off, the 1st tee was stacked with groups of 4. Later that day we were told that it was because the golf now app put 4 groups between a 10 min time frame. I guess that's just what you have to deal with if you want to play half price. No worries though because my Dad and I just started on the back 9 instead. It was a great round of golf.
I booked a Tee time for 9:48 Sunday morning. I paid just under $50 for the two of us on a hot deal on my golf now app. I must say if I had paid regular price I would have been mad. There were no warning signs to let players know that the course was under construction. I mean there wasn't even any sand in the bunkers. I actually tried to call the course the day before and all morning before the tee time to check on the course condition but nobody answers the phone around that place. Kind of a let down for an hour drive but at least the bartender was hot. :)
Eagle Pointe is worth the time
Eagle Pointe has some great greens - they were fast and well-maintained. A lot of crabgrass in the rough and the fairways, but still an enjoyable loop. And their carts are excellent!
I'll go back there again, especially when I find hot deals with GolfNow. Played 18 for $14 per player!
Wish it was closer to Louisville
Got there early, no wait for the first tee, got out early...
It was hot
The course was dry typical for this time of year. It was challenging but fair , bunkers didn't have much sand in them . Would go back and play.
Greens and fairways were in great shape. It's a tough course, if your over 90 handicap, I wouldn't play here.
Same they don't have 18th hole waterfalls working anymore, that was a beautiful hole back in the day!
Layout of course
Course is tight off the tees with lots of "risk/reward" opportunities.
This course was in the best condition it has ever been and I've been playing it for over 15 years. Great course. Great layout. Challenging.
Typical dry course at this time of year but in overall good condition. They have had little rain over the past few weeks. Had to play the back 9 twice as the front 9 was being aerated - GolfNow did not notify me of this when we booked our tee time.
Great day on the course
Took a day of vacation to get out of the office. Glad I picked this course to do it on even through I had to drive about 1 hr to get there. It was beautiful day and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Course in very good condition and greens were excellent. Will play there again when I can.
Love this course
fairways and greens were in excellent shape. love the challenge this course gave me with the dog legs and narrow fairways. greens were very consistent throughout the course.
