Located in the scenic hills of Wasatch Front, Eaglewood's par 71 course challenges links-lovers to varying elevations and sloping greens. While reveling in idyllic valley views, golfers drive GPS-equipped carts around the mountainous terrain that surrounds the course, ending up on holes such as Through the Woods, a deceptively sloped par 3 riddled with trees, or Blindman's Bluff, where homebound golf balls seek a hidden green from an uphill tee shot. Named for its vertical descent, Hangtime—Eaglewood's signature hole—harbors a treacherous downslope, a green flanked by bunkers, and an adjacent lake hungry for stray golf balls and errant drivers. Local wildlife, including moose, eagles, and red foxes, occasionally appear from the wilderness to guide par-seekers through manicured lawns complete with fountains and garden gnomes trained to politely clap.
