Situated on South Florida's Treasure Coast in the quaint town of Hobe Sound, is Eaglewood's executive 18-hole golf course. This is a private golf course that is well maintained and always in top condition. It has a reputation for being one of the finest greens in the area.
The links course was designed by golf architect Ward Northrup, a Joe Lee protege. Capitalizing on the undulating landscape of the Hobe Sound, the executive golf course is just 3,105 yards from the longest tees for a total of 57 par. Northrup added lakes to create at least 10 water hazards to up the play. The greens are made of Bermuda so pay attention to the grain as it can break your putt.
Eaglewood has a slope rating of 80 and a course rating of 54. Though rated as an easy course, don't be fooled by this. Being a links course, it can be tricky. The course features some of the strongest par threes with forced carry-over water. Overall, the layout is great and is a perfect example of old Florida golf.
Eaglewood has no driving range but its practice facility has a pitching and chipping area and a putting green. A resident golf pro is also available to provide instructions. The golf community has a pro shop and offers rental services for clubs and carts.
Guests are welcome but must be accompanied by a member.
