Played Eagle Glen 2/26. Tee time was 7am. Showed up at 645 with no one in sight on the course. Instead of letting me cruise out as a single and finish in under 3 hours they made me wait till 7 and play with a 3 some. Not a big deal, but some courtesy would be nice. POP was 4.5.
Tee boxes: level for the most part. ok coverage. no real complaints
Fairways: Bit of a mixed bag, but overall good given the recent weather.
Rough: Not really existent, maybe an inch or 1.5 most.
Bunkers: Great. good depth, no standing water.
Greens: FAST. fastest I have ever seen here. Rolling at least an 11.
Overall some of the best conditions I've seen here. Certainly the best the greens have been, almost too hard. Would definitely recommend.

Played 2/23/17. The course is in very nice condition. The greens were pretty much close to perfect except that they were very very fast. Most tee boxes were level and well covered with turf. The pace of play was not great because somehow a group of five was playing in front of us, and didn't care that they were two holes behind. I have always been told they don't allow groups of five but maybe someone knew somebody. The course was not overly wet even with all the recent rain. Sand was mostly good with some being fresh sand and a few others still hard packed by the rains. Overall a good round of golf.
Just a little update on our course conditions. We have recently (back in Dec 2015) transitioned to Valley Crest Golf Maintenance (BrightView now) We have implemented a 2 year plan to get our fairways into great shape. This year we have begun lots of work to the fairways to increase...
I contacted Eagle Glen recently have a post about the fairways in reference to a recent review:
"It's been a while since I played here, always enjoy this course as the customer service is great, fees very reasonable, and the general layout is most enjoyable. However, consistent with weeman68's re...
Demanding tee shot makes this hole play tougher than it should. Challenge the left side off the tee at your own risk, it's a long carry and doesn't really reward you with anything significant. The smart play is a 3 wood/hybrid down the left side, leaving you with about 150 down the hill. Short of the green is firm allowing for a bump and run, but be careful of the hazard short and left. On the green, what you see is what you get.
While I typically don't like split fairways on par 5s, this one is well designed. There's plenty of room for a solid driver down the left side, but be careful as everything slopes right into the ravine.
The 2nd shot plays much shorter than the yardage says. 240 will play closer to 215 as everything runs down and to the left. 2 strategies here. 1 - hit it short of the big bunker fronting the green (keeping it left if possible for the best angle), leaving you with about a 90 yard pitch. OR try to hit a runner through the gap, keeping in mind you won't get the ball to stop on the front of green. For a front pin placement, you're better off laying up and hitting a full wedge to get the ball to stop. In either case avoid the right hand bunker on the hill at all costs as that's basically jail.
3 good shots will get you a good look at birdie.
