The Eagle Has Landed
For your viewing pleasure; some more photos from my trip to Florida in January (see link below).
This time it’s the challenge of The Club at Eaglebrooke!
To give a bit of an insight, here is an excerpt from the accompanying article I wrote for Golf World. You check out the magazine at http://www.todaysgolfer.co.uk/Golf/Golf-World
Where eagles dare
The Club at Eaglebrooke picks up where Southern Dunes leaves off with a series of visually dramatic holes incorporating not only impressive bunkering but also several lakes which add tough approach shots and an island fairway to the fray. Opened for play in 1996, local golf course architect Ron Garl certainly had a sense of mischief when he laid out this design.
After hosting LPGA Futures Tour events and Champions Tour qualifying, John Greiner, head golf professional at Eaglebrooke, says the layout is tough enough to challenge any player. “For a Florida course, it has some elevation to it,” he says coolly. “It has some rolling hills and undulating greens and it has its share of water and bunkers.”
Let me know what you think.
