    Still one of my faves. The layout, the scenery and the greens will keep this in my Top 10. In the meantime, they have made some improvements and have some in progress that will make it even better. They are halfway through a bunker renovation with the front 9 completed and the back 9 nearly done. For now, several holes on the back have bunkers marked as Ground Under Repair until they are able to fill them in with sand – this made for a hilarious shot by one of my playing partners where he tried to chip over the left greenside bunker on 13, duffed it, bounced off the concrete bunker bottom and onto the green :-D. The bunkers that are done are niiice. Full, fluffy white sand has replaced the old, washed out red dirt bunkers. This will be an excellent upgrade.

    They’ve also reshaped and enlarged a few of them. Case in point, the aforementioned left greenside bunker on the driveable par 4 13th now extends across the front of the green. This will block a ball from rolling up onto the green, but it will also save balls from taking the left to right slope and rolling into the water. So I’d call it a good change.

    They’ve laid new sod around some of the greens and new bunkers as well. They have also dug up the pond to the right of the par 3 6th hole to put in better drainage I’m guessing. This won’t change the hole but might improve the aesthetics when they are done.

    The Zoysia greens have matured now and they are able to keep them smooth and fast. Downhill putts – and you will have many on these greens – can be scary fast. They are in great shape.

    Eagle Chase used to be this hidden gem out in the Union County pastures, but with its beauty and excellent greens, word has gotten out. The course is more crowded now and the rates are going up (now $60 for a prime weekend tee time). Still, it is worth the drive and the money!
