Played on 12/26. This was my first time playing Eagle Falls after years of wanting to get out here. With all the great reviews I have read and the 9.03 rating, the course had a lot to live up to and it did.
Check in was fast and easy. Not much here as far as club house or snack bar or bar, but it's not why I wanted to come here anyways. They paired us with a very nice couple from Canada and we tee'd off right on our 11:16 tee time. POP 4 hrs 15 min. We did not use the range, but it looked very nice.
Tee boxes - In very nice lush shape. All were level and had normal divot damage.
Fairways - Wow, were they ever perfect. No brown could be found. Ball always sat up nice. Fairways undulate, but not to severely. Some of the best I have ever played on.
Rough - Long, thick and sticky (Golf version of a Montrose song). The rough was always on hills and if you though you might get a lucky bounce out of it, forget it, not happening. The rough was dark green everywhere and would grab your club and ball. Framed the fairways nicely.
Bunkers - Was only in one and had nice sand, could use a little bit more, but i am not complaining. Saw one green side bunker with lots of new sand just waiting for a crew to spread it out. The bunkers are deep and
Greens - A little slow for my taste, but in great shape. they were medium speed but downhill putts and chips could get away from you. If you only read your putts from behind the ball, you will have trouble here. You need to look at them from a side angle also or it's going to be a long 3 putt day.
Overall I loved the course and can't wait to get back out, maybe for a springtime round. If the wind kicks up it is going to be a very tough course. There are some forced carries, like 150 yards over water, but with the breeze we had in our face that day it made the drive a little more nerve racking.» Close
