EAGLE HARBOR GOLF CLUB (904-269-9300)
Florida Golf Course Review
Eagle Harbor Golf Club is a Clyde Johnson championship layout that is carved into a terrain featuring 60 foot high pine trees and plentiful water hazards. The environment provides
a natural habitat for plentiful native wildlife including bald eagles, which we were able to observe on our late February visit. The property has been awarded 4 stars from Golf Digest
Places to Play.
With green fees including cart topping pout at around $60 prime time in 2006, this is a wonderful value for NE Florida. Golfers will find the course challenging from the two back
sets of tees which play to 6840 yards/141 slope and 6432 yards with a slope of 133. From the two forward sets (5915 yards/123 slope and 4980 yards/119 slope, the design is very playable.
On property at Eagle Harbor is a full service practice facility with a grass range plus unique island putting green. There also is a short game area with grass bunker. The
clubhouse features a pro shop and restaurant/lounge. There is an ongoing junior golf program on property, and clinics & lessons of many varieties are offered by a staff of golf
Water comes into play on 17 holes and 32 sand bunkers are located along the landing areas of the well conditioned fairways or greenside. On the back nine there is little sand, but
deep grass bunkers are often located near the raised putting complexes. Mounding near the large sloping greens and also along the fairways helps to shape the holes, which are
often bordered by canals, trees and wetlands.
On course yardage markers are posted on the cart paths and on the fairways at 100, 150 and 200 yards, 150 yards stakes are visible on par fours and fives, and color coded flags
indicate the day's hole locations. Eagle Harbor is a nice golf experience and a great value. For more info, visit our page for the course, with direct link to their website by clicking here.
