About this course
A favorite course for some of the biggest Amateur tournaments in and around Bengaluru the Eagleton course is a pioneering Golf course in many ways,as it set the standard for golf in the south when it was launched. Voted often as one of the best courses in India the Eagleton Golf village commenced operations in 1999. In those days a course away from the city with homes & a resort feel was a unlikely business model & most well wishers had their doubts about the success of this venture. It did well & hosted a multitude of events -something which it continues to do today. The course even hosted a European Ladies Tour event.
At 7100 yards,this Par 72, 18 hole championship course is a pleasure to play at with changes in elevation, water hazards in play, 68 bunkers to avoid & a whole lot of mature tree line for company. The greens are Tifdwarf Bermuda greens & play to between 8 to 9 on the stimp. During tournaments the speed goes up to between 10-11 making them a interesting challenge.
The golf course at Eagleton is designed by Pacific Coast Design (PCD) & is created in a manner that ensures all golfers find the course a joy to play – the pros from the 7100 yard championship tees,do find it a challenge.The casual golfer similarly can play off the forward tees & still be competitive. With the resort set up which includes rooms, restaurants & other leisure activities this is a perfect weekend getaway.
The Eagleton resort has also built a large driving range & training academy which has produced some very fine golfers at both the amateur & professional level.
The course design emerges from the terrain, sculptured around existing contours. Creative land management attuned in form, function and aesthetics to the surroundings, has resulted in a masterpiece. Trees, open landscape, water bodies and theme plantings create a wonderful environment that is soothing to the senses. Ecological factors come into play at every stage. Over 40,000 trees, lush turf and sophisticated fertilization, irrigation and waste water management measures contribute to a natural pleasing biosphere.
