The course was great, actually the best course that I've played this winter in Florida.

WATCH THE PEOPLE JUST COMING OFF THE PLANE..
This is a nice course in that you can get off the airplane, and come right to this course to play. That is what one of my playing partners did, coming from Michigan. The group ahead of us did also. First 9 was fine .. 2 hours. Second nine, we could see that the jet lag got to those ahead of us, who came from the U.K. directly to this course... 3 hours.
Condition was nice, very nice, until we saw something, and reported it, but got brushed aside...... hole 17.
WE WERE STANDING ON THE TEE AT 17. I SAW THE WIND BLOWING THE FLAG FROM LEFT TO RIGHT. THE PLAYERS PUTT OUT, THEN LEFT. WE THOUGHT THE WIND HAD STOPPED .. SAW NO FLAG BLOWING. WE HIT, WITH BAD RESULTS BECAUSE THE WIND WAS ... WAS .. WAS.. BLOWING LEFT TO RIGHT AND WITH US! THESE FREAKING U.K. EUROPEANS STOLE THE FLAG AFTER THEY PUTT OUT!!! WE CALLED THE PRO SHOP, THEN WENT IN AFTER 18 ... THEY BRUSHED US OFF LIKE IT WAS NOTHING. THESE VISITORS HAD NO RESPECT FOR THE COURSE, THE PLAYERS BEHIND THEM, AND THEMSELVES TO STEAL A FREAKING FLAG! THEY HAVE SOUVENIRS FOR SALE RIGHT IN THE SHOP, BUT THESE GUYS DECIDED TO STEAL A $30 FLAG! THE PRO IN THE SHOP SHOULD HAVE COME OUT AND ASKED FOR THE FLAG BACK, SO THEY CAN BE ASHAMED OF WHAT THEY DID. BUT THEY DID NOTHING. THAT ...WAS... DISAPPOINTING.....

One of the best courses in the Orlando area. Good condition, good practice areas, good and welcoming staff.

Close to airport
Off the plane and to the tee, this course works. The course has a nice layout, but poorly maintain for a fairly new course. Greens need to be rolled and better maintain. Fairways seem to be weedy! I do not play on Bermuda grass so this could be normal growth if not mowed.
Ownership may want to look at better maintenance versus putting the money in their pocket!.
That said, the Pro Shop staff is very nice, courteous and helpful.

Fun Course. Too slow
Like the course. Don't like the Pace. Didn't see a Player assistant all day. Sorry to be critical.

A Great Day
A great day on an interesting and varied layout that had it all - twists & turns, ups & downs, tough bunkering and a " good walk NOT spoiled". We'll definitely be back - next week.

HORRIBLE ATTTITUDE/CUSTOMER SERVICE
HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE. What a disappointment.
I travel with a group to Orlando every February for 4 days of golf and fun. There are 8 of us. Well this year, thanks to Eagle Creek, our trip ended on a sour note.
First of all it POURED there were ponds on the 18th green that we could see from the clubhouse. There was a 'lake' on the 18th fairway. EVERY single player out on the course came in when the rain got so heavy we couldn't see twenty feet in front of us. We had played exactly one hole before the skies opened up. We teed off at 1:08PM.
We chose eagle creek for it's proximity to the airport. Had we played the full round we would have got to MCO with about 2+ hours to spare before our flight. Once it started raining we waited over an hour for it to SLOW down. It didn't and by the time it finally did - as we were leaving the course - it was too late to go back out and play or we'd be in jeopardy of missing our flights. Besides on some fairways we would have needed a boat to get to our ball(s).
A lot of players go to this course on the way home for the same reasons. It let's us get in a Sunday round and then get to the airport. Well once the rain started to fall and everyone came back you can imagine the traffic in the clubhouse. This course is not prepared for such eventualities. The showers had no hot water. There were no towels.
I asked the pro shop guys about the weather before packing it in - they told me there was a line of showers heading right for us. No way we could get back out and make our flights.
We get back home talk to our travel agents - MERIT GOLF - they attempted to get a refund for the rain out and Eagle Creek said "We didn't close the course, so we can't offer you a refund". REALLY ? I would have like to see them play cart path only, get in 18 , shower in cold water with no towels and make the airport in time for the flights after the rain delay.
So this is the second time our group came to Eagle Creek. A decent track but the people there know as much about customer service as I do about cold fusion.
At the least they could have offered us a token gesture.
On the basis of customer service alone I wouldn't recommend this course.
