We were introduced to the Golden Eagle by a 'local' and what a delightful parkland course this is. The course boasts many bunkers and a number of holes with water hazards but is a fair challenge to all levels of golfers. The tee areas, fairways and greens are well kept and 'true' but one minor quibble was the 'concrete' nature... More

Almost had the course to ourselves. Over 90 degree heat and they wouldn't accept payment for our post round lemonade. Nice little gesture.

Wonderful golf course nestled in the Northern Neck of Virginia. Each hole is a chapter in a delightful story. A must play for anyone who appreciates the game.

I live across Virginia in Roanoke (250 miles away!), but I try to get over to play the "Eagle" at least once per season. What one of the 2014 reviewers said about the course needing some repairs is true, but please do not get the impression that every sand trap is a muddy mess. I played here on Wed. July... More

We enjoyed this long golf course, which is also available for walking on the cart paths. You may sight an eagle.

The title says it all. There is a lot of deferred maintenance on the golf course. It is without a doubt the best designed golf course on the northern neck. It's current condition doesn't do justice to the vision in the original design work.

The guys in my party loved the course. Reasonable fees. The course is kept well. Can't find anything wrong.

I live in Florida, but my in-laws house is two miles from the course. I have been playing there for the past 27 years. All year long I look forward to summer visits and the chance to play this magnificent course. As soon as you pull into the parking lot you can feel the stress just disappear. The pros, Rich... More

This was a beautiful golf course that we wouldn't mind playing again later in the season. Unfortunately, while we were there the fairway grass was dormant and it had been raining hard, so the ball didn't roll as much as we would have liked. No one else played that morning while we were there.
