Eagle Creek Golf & Country Club 18 Holes, Par 72
Constructed in 1984, the 18-hole championship golf course at Eagle Creek Golf and Country Club offers a challenging adventure through Southwest Florida’s native landscape and environment. The course was originally designed by renowned golf course architect Larry Packard who is considered to be the father of the dreaded double dogleg and one of only three golf course architects to ever receive the Distinguished Service Award by the American Society of Golf Course Architects. Larry Packard is best known for designing and working on over 600 golf courses, including the famed Copperhead Course which is a favorite of PGA TOUR players. Subsequent renovations and modifications were later performed by former U.S. Open champion and Eagle Creek member, Ken Venturi. In May 2013, Ken Venturi was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame. A bust featuring his contributions to the club and golf course is displayed near the first tee!
The course features Tifeagle greens built to USGA specifications with Platinum TE Paspalum and Celebration Bermuda grass on tees, Celebration Bermuda grass on fairways and 419 & Celebration Bermuda grass on roughs. A choice of six sets of tees offers a competitive round for any level of playing ability.
