This course is about the worst I have ever played. First off, it is impossible to get to. Prepare for a loooong drive thru Escondido's traffic ridden streets, then out into the country for what seems like forever. When you finally arrive, you are greeted by a trailer for a main building. Inside you will find some of the least... More

The Eagle Crest Golf Course is in a housing development in Eastern Escondido, California near the San Diego Wild Animal Park. The layout is very interesting with lots of oak trees and dense jungle like wooded areas. It helps to be a straight hitter if you don't like penalty strokes for lost golf balls. There are a few hilly areas... More

Wow. What a deal. Excellent layout. Great greens. Condition was lush. We had a blast. Nice and quiet with good views. Some houses on a couple holes but they don't crowd the course. Value and fun that is tough to beat!

I played this course on a whim due to funding a golf now discount on a rainy day. Wow! A beautiful course with amazing views of the foot hills surrounding San Pasquale.

If you're budget conscious this is a good option. This is an adequate course to play a round of golf, but the course is not particularly well maintained. One benefit is that due to a low number of people playing we had no one in front or behind us!

Eagles Crest is a beautiful course that winds through some pretty vistas in Escondido, CA. Houses often surround the holes, but they don't detract from the course's beauty. A par 5 on the back nine is particularly challenging. You hit downhill and then have to go over or around a big pond for your second shot. The green has a... More

EagleCrest has always been a hidden gem. Even back when it was a Callaway property. The course is challenging, beautiful, and full of friendly people. They are also a fantastic tournament sponsor!

The setting is lovely. The staff friendly. The course has a great layout through the canyons. But it isn't much of a test, and it needs a lot of maintenance, especially the fairways and bunkers. All of this is reflected in the very reasonable price.

We found this course to be challenging and fun to play. The greens were in great shape. The fairways were not that great but they have drought conditions here so that is to be expected. The price was excellent - $35 with a cart. Not much of a pro shop or food facility but the golf course is a nice... More

This course has possibilities but the condition of the greens are poor and have been so for a couple of years. With many other very good courses within 10 - 15 mins others are preferable.
