About Eagle Eye Golf Club

Eagle Eye is a public 18-hole golf club located in Bath, Michigan, near East Lansing and The University of Michigan. Eagle Eye Golf Club is part of Hark Hollow, a popular 27-hole layout across the street from Eagle Eye.

Eagle Eye Golf Club opened for play on August 1, 2003. The course was designed by Chris Lutzke, in collaboration with Pete Dye.

Eagle Eye has two personalities, it's an open links-style course on the front nine, from #10 thru #14, the back nine goes into a stand of colorful trees and doesn't come out until #15. Golfers who play this course always comment about #17, a par-3 island green hole, which is a good duplication of the 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass.

Par for the course is 72. From the back tees, the course plays to 7,323 yards. From the forward tees, the course measures 5,105 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 9, a par-5 that plays to 598 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 17, a par-3 that plays to 146 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 5, a 210-yard par-3 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Eagle Eye Golf Course is # 14, a 560 yard par-3.

Played here years ago and was invited to play again by my friend Mark P............so off we went. For Senior public play, you won't find anything that gives you challenge / quality for $49 like Eagle Eye within 50 miles of here.

With five (5) sets of tees, they have eight (8) Par 72 yardage variations from 7,323yd / 75.9 / 145 down to 5,105yd / 65.4 / 119 to accommodate every level of player. We chose the Blues that played 6,412yds / 71.4 / 136 on this rolling Links, lake lined, sand/grass trap protected greens that were rolling 8-10 as they dried out. The landing areas we picked were about 230yds to the trouble areas so we adjusted accordingly but it gave us longer yardages to the large/holding greens for our shots coming in.

The course is stretched in acreage with no "Side by Side" holes to be bothered by errant shots or distracts from other players. No real straightforward holes as Pete Dye had a hand in the layout so trouble will sooner than later find your weakness and make you pay.

The #17 146yd Par 3 is an Island layout like #17 at Sawgrass, and all four (4) of us parred it from 126yds which was a highlight for all of us.

I shot 48/42 w/37putts because of #2 157yd / Par 3 deep greenside bunker that took three shots out and then a three back for salt on the wound, which still has me replaying it every day. Mark P had a 43/44 w/35putts and we all had a good time talking about later in the Spartan Cafe afterwards.

If in the area you must stop and play this great conditioned and challenging course in East Lansing.

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing, Ranks with the best in this price level, Best course in the area
