Golf Course Review Eagle Glen Golf club Corona California
Reviewed by: JohnnyGK, Thousand Oaks
Out with fellow GK Gurus Wednesday 2/26 at Eagle Glen. I was in pants from a meeting prior and sure wished I was in shorts like the rest of the guys. Was hard to believe it was February. We teed off around 11:00am and finished in 4:30 hours. I was in the group consisting or TubeDude, rgm2525 and allan_grant.
We played the Black/Blue Combo tees and I thoroughly enjoyed experiencing some tee boxes never played as I normally play the Blue Tees only.
Golf course was in very good shape considering it was February. I knew going in the fairways would be dormant and firm. I liked that they sprayed them with a very light green tint to create extra definition between the rough and fairways. They played very firm yet you needed to be careful with short pitch shots off them to pick them perfect otherwise the turf seemed to grab the club just enough to result in a fat shot. Bump and run is your best option.
Greens were the best conditioned aspect of the golf course running moderately fast and smooth. They, like the rest of the golf course were very firm so you need to play shots factoring in a release.
Love those putting surfaces as they are large and challenging enough without being unfair. Tee boxes as mentioned were mostly lush and firm and could use some leveling improvements on most. Green-side bunkers were in good shape, a little thin and firm which I enjoy. It’s important to note that despite the warm days it’s the cold nights in those hills that keep the Bermuda turf dormant. I would not expect the fairways to be naturally green until sometime in late April or early May.
Check out the photos I just posted. My favorite part of Eagle Glen is the layout especially the par 3’s and par 5’s. All the par 3’s feature a forced carry and the par 5’s are risk/reward. The 18th hole is one of the best finishing holes in Southern California IMO. The views are fantastic throughout the golf course with many doglegs in different directions. I feel like it’s a layout that can appeal to just about any golfer. The only hole I don’t like is #2.
Eagle Glen has hosted our GK Cup Final and many GK Cup Matches. Certainly a favorite in the area that I looking forward to playing again and again. Recommended.
