Eagle has improved Summer of 2011
Pros: The first 9 are the easiest and you should work on a low score. The back 9 are difficult with trees, hills, water coming into play. Beautiful views of the mountains, river, etc. County government willing to listen to suggestions (see below to give feedback).
Cons: Easy to lose a disc on back 9. Somewhat tough to navigate, but so much better since volunteers painted tee box rocks yellow with black hole numbers and all basket numbers correspond to tee box numbers.
Other Thoughts: Contact the local Eagle County Commissioners at 970 328-8605 to talk about your interest in having the course updated, clearly marked with road signs, put into tourist information brochures because it would bring people to Eagle. They are thinking about doing this but need a push.

Pros: Front nine can make or break your game. This side has a few mixed technical tree shots and huge bomb holes in between. The tee pads are fine whether they still have their mats or is dirt. This is a great course to work on power shots and really see what you can do. The back nine, once you figure it out, is sick. There are a couple layouts that can be used for it to make things interesting. The original one of course, sends a lot of people packing. Never super busy, always a good place to come practice that shot w/o everyone and their mom watch you mess up.
Cons: The course can be muddy at times, windy some, ok a lot of the time. Spring golf is a task since there is such a prolonged wind season in the valley. The tall grass throughout the course makes it super hard to find your disc again, especially on 6 & 7. Just the hardest part that people find is just figuring out the back nine, thats it. There will usually be someone there to help you out. And don't think this is a cakewalk course, the front and the back are very different and each have challenging aspects.
Other Thoughts: Great place to learn how to play, great summer weather, plenty of different scenarios to make you think. Its not an easy course no matter what people think. There are giant holes that take a big man to birdie them and tight wooded holes that will eat your disc alive. But this course is great for everything, check it out and also Glenwood, New Castle, and the Beaver Creek courses when the snow's gone

Not that bad...
Pros: Long open shots, Challenging wooded shots, Vast majority.
Cons: The only cons that i could possible see is the tee box on 2 and hole 16. 2 is a little messed up now because of construction and 16 snatches up your disc unless you can put your disc up and over a forest.
Other Thoughts: There is no missing baskets or tee boxes, and webster doesnt know what pro's and con's are so idk how much of his you can take as valid... And if you cant figure out where the holes go to then get a map, which isnt that hard. No its not as good as Glenwood or Beaver Creek which are 45 min. away but it is still fun.
