Eagle Crest - Resort Course
One More Time Around
Redmond, OR area, played 10/6 at Eagle Crest ( 2 reg., 1 exec. course) Course is in superb shape--weather 70-85* all week.Played poorly, enjoyed greatly. Great bargain via Hot List on Golf Now. Believe this weather not unusual for Eagle Crest in Oct. Course flat after#2-3. Mod # traps.Minimal H2O. OB's possible, but fairways generous. Greens mod. undulating. Could handfeed deer at Pro shop

Always a Great Choice
I have played here many times while visiting Eagle Crest Resort but this was the first time my wife (a beginning golfer) played with me.
The weather was not great but we headed out earlier than our tee time when there was a break in the clouds. We appreciated the staff's willingness to let us go prior to our reserved time.
The course was in great shape and it plays well for a wide variety of abilities. A couple of suggestions:
1. Consider adding an additional set of tees between the whites and the reds. There was a twosome of guys in front of us playing the whites and they should have been on the reds. Perhaps they would have played a set of tees forward if there was something before the reds. (Some guys don't want to play "Ladies Tees.) Golf courses should never call tee boxes by gender - only color! I think the guys ahead of us would have had more fun playing a more forward set and would have gone faster!
2. We would have benefited from a marshal on the course helping these two guys to speed it up.
Other than that, we had a great time and look forward to playing at Eagle Crest again! There are some great views and lots of deer roaming the course.

Nice course at a discount
Course was in pretty good shape. Overall experience was good but would have liked to have more yardage references. Only the blue tees had permanent markers to denote where the distances were measured, so if you are playing whites and the tees aren't in their normal position the yardage will be off. Also none of the sprinklers have yardages so you only have the 100-150-200 spots to go from. I did appreciate the distance to the hazards off the tee on the scorecards.

poor treatment for resort course
Resort course without customer service for the price of golf. No bag drop or help with clubs, pay extra for range balls, no help with clubs at end of round. This would be a fine muni type course if the cost was more reasonable. Good design on starting & ending holes with wide open holes in the middle. enjoyed the pace of play & scenery.

Reasonably priced, course was in excellent shape, greens were meticulous and staff was friendly.

Glorious day made up for slow play
What a beautiful course and day. The 2nd hole is as amazing as promised. Elevated tee to a tricky canyon. Long rough. If you hit into it say farewell to your ball. Tricky greens. Want another chance at a few.
Very friendly staff. Course Marshall could have helped a bit more with the very slow 3some in front of us. They didn't let us through until the last par 3. We were in our car and leaving before they finished 18.
No cart service which seemed odd for a warm holiday weekend. Pretty parched by the end.

We played in the afternoon. The wind was a bit of a factor but not bad. On the back nine we had the course to ourselves, no one either in front or in back of us. The greens were slower than some of the other Central Oregon courses we have played this week, but rolled true.

Excellent course but very slow play
Most enjoyable course and quite challenging. Somewhat spoiled by very slow play.
