Taking its name from the majestic birds that can frequently be seen flying overhead, Eaglecrest is rich in history, dating back to the 1920’s when it was developed from a large estate. A royal visit by then Princess Elizabeth in 1951 is a highlight of its storied past. Several of the original buildings from the estate are protected and are still in use today.
Possessing a variety of challenges over its eighteen fairways, the first three holes are fairly open and introduce you gently to this lush, park-like course. Difficulty arises quickly from the fourth tee box, where a rather narrow landing area awaits big hitters, with water on the left and out of bounds on the right. Laying up with a long iron is the sensible play here. The middle holes wind through fir and cedar-lined fairways, with a variety of doglegs and ponds to keep you focused. The par five fourteenth at 509 yards from the whites is a challenge not to be taken lightly. Lined by lakes on both sides, with a huge pot bunker guarding the green, you’ll do well to make par here. The 403-yard seventeenth is also a test with its undulating fairways and slippery four-tiered green.
After your round, be sure to visit the historic clubhouse, 9,000 square feet and built from hand-hewn logs. Our aim at Eaglecrest is to provide excellent value at reasonable prices in an outstanding setting. Whether planning a dinner out, a banquet, or a golf game, we are sure you will enjoy your visit to Eaglecrest Golf Club.
