Eagle Crest Golf Club’s 18-hole course meanders across 6,735 yards of tree-lined terrain as it protrudes into the cerulean waters of Ford Lake. Players can groom their golf game before hitting the links with a regimen of 10 one-hour clinics, where Eagle Crest’s resident aces demystify the golf swing for small classes with their profound knowledge of golf mechanics and subtle use of spinning argyle hypnosis. Swing-honing sessions will pay dividends on the course, where towering trees pepper the landscape and intervening waterways come into play on 11 holes. The grassy monolith conjures all of its orb-impeding majesty on the hardest-rated fifth hole, a 555-yard par 5 with water stationed both right in front of the tee box and lining the entire right side of the fairway, which demands a one-stroke penalty or impeccable swan dive to impress resident Merpeople. Rounds can be redeemed anytime Monday–Friday and after 11 a.m. on weekends and holidays. Players may call up to a week in advance to schedule a tee time or walk in for the next available tee time.
