Check out the latest golf course review below for Eagle Creek Golf Club.
I played on 01/25/17 afternoon. Eagle Creek is one of my go-to places to play when visiting Orlando. Its not the fanciest place but its always consistent and playable with some great, hidden challenges.
The day I played, course was packed with all the golf personnel flying in from every where for the PGA Merchandise show. This course is adjacent to famous Lake Nona so some of us call Eagle Creek, poor man’s Nona. We got to play at 2PM for less than $40 each as out-of-towners. Customer service is usually great, just attentive enough but not hounding you for post round tips if you don’t want the clubs cleaned. Tee boxes were slightly beat up and not cut down to usual lower manicured settings. Fairways and Greens were very firm and most shots rolled or bounced through due to lot of roll. Most approach shots were short irons so firmness didn’t effect it as much as it could have been.
During our mid-round, we could see water being applied to greens and greens became more receptive as round wore on. Greens looked shaggy but it rolled faster than it looked and one of the hole, if you didn’t make the putt, it rolled completely off the green and you couldn’t get it within 10 feet of the hole. Our foursome all tried to putt is about 4 times and gave up and called it automatic 2 putts and moved on citing illegal pin placement.
Signature hole at this course is #18 par 5. You must land your ball on an island green that is reachable in 2 but even if you laid up, your short wedge shot is no guarantee of easy par.
Great part about this course is that its fairly close to Orlando International Airport so if you need to catch a flight post golf, this is perfect place to finish up your Orlando golf trip. Enjoy this course while rates are still cheap because its as good as the Disney Courses.
