What to Expect: While certainly not fitting the true definition of a links course, Eagles Nest is a links inspired layout with fescue encompassing the areas outside the first cut and designing greens that can be approached both through the air or with a shot that runs up onto the putting surface. Unlike a traditional links course, most players will navigate Eagles Nest with a cart in order to contend with the large elevation changes throughout the round; none more impressive than what players find on the dramatically downhill 3rd hole. While the entire course is certainly enjoyable and varied, the front nine is the stronger nine of the two and finishes with a landscape view of downtown Toronto. One thing you’ll notice right off the bat is how well the course is maintained which can be credited to a superintendent that has been working the turf at Eagles Nest since its infancy when the course was devoid of any housing outside the course. The spacious clubhouse is pure class and stands as a wonderful venue for hosting large events including 36 hole matches with lunch between rounds. In an area where the majority of top courses are private, Eagles Nest is a can’t miss venue that John Q. Public is fortunate to tee it up on as much as desired.
