Eagle Watch Golf Club Course ReviewOne of area’s first upscale daily fee layouts and still one of the best. Arnold Palmer-designed course is both a legitimate test and scenic, with a number of par-4s that rank among Atlanta’s best holes. One of the easiest first holes around, but very few breathers on next 17. Enjoyable variety of holes keeps things interesting throughout round Among the Atlanta area’s first upscale daily fee layouts and still one of the best. Arnold Palmer-designed course begins with a seemingly benign first hole, but there are few breathers the rest of the way. Very well crafted group of holes that will test your all-around game, with some large, undulating greens placing particular pressure on your putter. Water is in play on 12 of 18 holes, most notably on a trio of excellent par 4s and three strong par 5s that require thought and precision to solve. A tough but playable test that was regarded as perhaps area’s finest daily fee layout when it opened more than a decade ago, and hasn’t dropped very far in the rankings despite the large number of outstanding courses that have followed it. Eagle Watch is neither especially long nor tight, but there are plenty of holes when you don’t have to hit it too far off line to find the tree lines or a hazard. The quartet of par 4s is on the short side, but two are particularly unforgiving to mishits, with the pond that guards the front and right portions of the green on the 150-yard eighth having risen a good bit over the years thanks to all the balls that have landed in it.
