This course is situated on a very interesting piece of land. It is essentially on the side of a hill, running down into Ford Lake. It is the home course for the Eastern Michigan University golf team.

Overall, very fun and challenging layout. If you're walking, be prepared for some rigorous terrain. You'll have several hills to climb, and some decent space between green and tee. The greens are in particularly excellent shape. As I understand it, they are rolled regularly, and the result is some of the truest greens I've played in recent memory. There is also a fantastic driving range, practice putting greens, and practice chipping areas. I spent a good amount of time chipping/putting around after my round because the facility was just outstanding.

Definitely recommend checking this track out. For $25 at 3:40 PM on a weekday, you can't beat the price for a course of this condition. Will return if I'm in the area again.

Played the back 9 after work the other day around 4:30pm. 10 and 11 I wish I could have done over as they are tricky driving holes so could have saved some strokes likely if they came later in the round or now that I've played them once I know how better to attack them. 10 it's OK to hit driver cause it opens up and 11 you need to hit at least 220 to get around the corner.

Cart Path Only stinks at any course and it was pretty wet after the rain they had but greens were in good shape. Layout has a fair amount of water on the last 3 to 5 holes on the back. Distance is needed, some really picturesque holes w/ Ford Lake in the background. Got windy down there too. I'd go back, food was excellent on the patio as well.

Good layout that presents decisions to make or break your round on virtually every hole. From the blue tees a good test of when to go for it or play for position. Downhill putts - look out ! Be sure to play for low side of the hole. Par 5s are a good challenge with small greens making risk reward on going in two not favorable. Only down side is green are hard but true

This is a wonderful course and I've played it regularly over the past few years. I gave 5 stars for the course condition because over the long haul that's a fair rating, but I have a complaint. The staff members are great, the facilities are very well kept, and the conditions of the fairways and greens are typically excellent. That said, I have to say how disappointed I am with the trend over the last 3 years . They have simplified the course by cutting down dozens of trees with the most recent move being the worst, by far. They cut down a giant oak tree that protected the green on #11 and in the process robbed one of the signature holes in the area of every bit of its personality. Now it's just another meh dogleg right par 4. The more fundamental problem: this was a magnificent tree that must have been well over 100 (200?) years old. This was a terrible decision and it resulted in an irrecoverable loss. It makes the whole course feel less special.

This was my first time to play here as I'm in town for work so here is my take:

1) Staff was great! As soon as I walked in the door I was greeted with a smile. Pro Shop was a little small, but they do have anything that you might need in a last minute situation.

2) I started off by hitting a bucket at the range which is right behind the pro shop that overlooks part of the course. Large bucket is roughly 75 balls and was only $9.

3) The Marshall was really nice and upbeat. We cracked a few jokes before he told us to get out of there and go have a good time.

4) Course was very well maintained. The fairways were neat & manicured while the rough was still very playable. It's a challenging course, or at least it is for a novice golfer like me. The greens were very fast, but they were in great shape.

5) WATER HAZARDS! I lost two balls to water. While the scenery is very nice, there is water lurking around every corner! Lol Ok maybe not EVERY corner, but there are several just waiting to get you so be sure to check before you swing.

6) Pace of play was a bit slow for the first 4-5 holes, but once we played through it was smooth sailing all the way.

Overall, I really enjoyed myself despite shooting an 82. I will PROBABLY be back this coming Sunday to try and break 80.

What a pleasant surprise!

Staff all very welcoming.

Fabulous practice facility. Largest, most beautiful range in the state!

Golf course challenging with plenty of tee options and length but not tricked up.

Fairways and greens in great shape (if other players would fix their ball marks it would be perfect).

This is a poorly run golf club. The staff is unfriendly and straight up rude (when they're even around to help). The rangers never go around to check the pace of play so the course is extremely backed up every time I've played. If you tee off after 8 am expect at least a 5 and a half hour round. The greens keepers and lawn mowers are the rudest and most clueless people I've experienced working at a golf course. They don't stop for people on the tees/in fairways/on greens and if they do they don't turn of their motors or move out of your line of sight/landing area. The driving range is built on a complete slant so there is little to no flat spots to hit from. I have never walked away from a golf course feeling like I had set my money on fire, but when I play at Eagle Crest it is a common theme. Use your hard earned cash at a driving range instead of playing at Eagle Crest.
