EAGLE MARSH GOLF CLUB (772-692-3322)
Florida Golf Course Review
Eagle Marsh in Jensen Beach is recognized as one of the most beautiful and challenging layouts on Florida's Treasure Coast. This course was designed
by Tom Fazio and upon opening in 1997 was nominated by Golf Digest for "Best New Course". The facility provides an outstanding golfing experience that
combines nature and wildlife on 260 landscaped acres. The fairways are undulating with ample landing zones, but golfers will be challenged to reach the
sloping putting surfaces which well protected by sand bunkers and mounding..
Five sets of tee boxes play to distances and slopes measuring 6918 yards with a formidable slope of 144, 6397 yards/134 slope, 5993 yards/129 slope,
5247 yards/111 slope for men and 123 for women and 4720 yards with a slope of 113 for women playing from the forward sets. A 150 yard stake is visible
on all par fours and fives, and the Kirby marking system is in place (yardages provided every 25 yards from 200 to 75 yards). Color coded flags indicate
front, middle and back hole locations on the true-rolling Tif Dwarf greens, with 419 Bermuda providing excellent playing surfaces on the well manicured
fairways. Golfers will encounter private club type conditioning from tee to green at Eagle Marsh.
On property is a full service clubhouse with restaurant/lounge and banquet outing facilities for up to 200 people, a pro shop plus locker rooms with
showers for men and women. Practice facilities include a grass range and putting/chipping green. All carts come equipped with weather covers, to protect
clubs during inclement weather. The course meanders through a beautiful residential community, with abundant wildlife present in the natural marshes and ponds.
There are 9 holes with water in play in some shape or form, and over 80 soft sand bunkers can be found greenside or along the landing zones on fairways
. As the slope ratings indicate - this is a very challenging round of golf - particularly from the two back sets of tees. At the same time, the layout is also
player friendly for women hitting from the forward tees. Local golfers consider this course to be one of the area's top tests.
Eagle Marsh is situated within the Savannah Wildlife Preserve, with wonderful views of the marshes, wetlands, and mature pines which house many
varieties of nesting birds. It is one of the few remaining public courses on the Treasure Coast. The property is also home to the Jensen Beach Golf
Academy. For more info, visit our page for the course, with direct link top their website by clicking here.
