The greens were excellent, with good green-side bunkering. The fringe was in good shape and gave way to well trimmed rough.
All fairways were in good shape and the fairway bunkers were trimmed, and filled with good sand. The landing areas were generous but be careful as they give way to thick, dense bush. There are rattle snake warning so best to keep out. All the sprinkler heads were marked.
There are four tees, with washers, garbage, official markers but no signs or maps of the hole. A number of tees were in bad shape.
This is an excellent designed course. Each hole was different. There were plenty of elevation changes with elevated tees and greens. The collection of par threes was well done. We also found ourselves remarking after a finishing a number of holes something like, that was a good hole. Number six is probably their signature hole as it has a large waterfall coming down the rock and forming a lake in front of the green. Fourteen is a par five, dogleg right around a lake and eighteen is an excellent finishing hole requiring a well placed tee shot and an accurate second shot. There is danger on the right and a lake close to the green which is well protected with bunkers.
This is an outstanding course which offered low green fees. We paid $35with a cart, but the fellows behind us only paid $20. Check last minute tee times on the web.
Eagle Crest has a slope of 126 but I think it plays a little easier then the slope indicates. There are plenty of fairway bunkers and most greens are well protected. I was also very pleasantly surprised at the amount of water that came into play on the course.
The course is nestled in the Pasquel Valley and located in a very nice subdivision. The mountains to the south have large boulders while the mountains on the other side are green with orange groves.
Everyone we meet were very friendly and happy doing their jobs. There was a nice sign that said thank you for visiting them and playing their course just as we came off the 18th hole.
Basic clubhouse with a limited menu. The pro shop has a very limited selection of merchandise. There is a very large deck,where you could easily seat a large tournament. This deck has picnic tables and over looks the 18th green.
They have a driving range, putting green, electric carts and well paved cart paths.
We were very happy with our choice of Eagle Crest. It was our first course we played and set us up very nicely for the rest of the week. This course would be one I would consider joining if I lived in the area. It was also the course where we found the $2 beer.
