Condition Update: The Eagles Golf Course

The Eagles Forest Course

Unkempt tee boxes and fairways characterized the Forest Course on this visit.

I recently returned with a buddy to the Eagles Golf Club of Tampa Bay to finish my review and play the club’s second course, the Lakes.  I reviewed the Forest course back on May 23 and the course was in great shape.  However after arriving we were disappointed when staff in the pro shop suggested we play the Forest course as it was in better condition.

Our disappointment deepened shortly after teeing off.  The course was not in the same shape it was 2 months ago.  Not all the fairways had been cut, some tee boxes were in rough shape and the sand traps had a lot of standing water in them.   The greens however, were a bright spot and still in good shape.  Our price for this round was just $25 on a Florida resident deal which mitigated our disappointment somewhat.

Shortly after we finished our round, I spoke to a staff member who told me the Eagles is undergoing a management transition and they will be working to improve the conditions on both courses.  Because of this, make sure you ask what the course conditions are before you book your tee time.
