Eagle Landing Golf Club - A Modern Classic with Perfect Conditions

Eagle Landing Golf ClubThe surrounding natural wonder blends perfectly with the unequaled standard of living offered at Eagle Landing, the 1.320-acre golf course located in northern Clay County. Presented by East West Partners, Inc., developers of acclaimed Eagle Harbor at Fleming Island, the carefully planned community offers an array of activities and amenities including a par-72 golf course designed by renowned architect Clyde Johnston of Hilton Head, South Carolina.

Also recognized for creating the much-admired course at Eagle Harbor, the award-winning architect designed a tour de force that incorporates classic designs from around the world by some of golf’s original architects. Johnston guarantees that the course will challenge golfers of all skill levels. Though similar to Eagle Harbor in its difficulty, the course at Eagle Landing Golf Club offers an entirely fresh concept for the avid North Florida golfer. With six sets of tees, the course plays 3,023 from the youth tees and a challenging 7,037 from the back tees.

Eagle Landing golfers will be impressed upon arrival by the driving range alone. The 8,000–square-foot, doubleended practice area features target bunkers facing in both directions.

Golfers can forget about that stack of work back at the office when teeing off on the beautifully landscaped 7,037-yard routing through pristine wetlands and conservation areas bordering the 24,000-acre Jennings State Forest. The course also features unique bunkers, many of which feature grass peninsulas or “noses”.

Johnson’s routing philosophy is to have golfers begin each nine easier than they finish it. Besides classic-designed holes and elevated greens, he placed splitlevel fairways on doglegs at #7 and #14 for risk-reward options. The finishing holes of each nine dogleg around a common lake that’s the focal point of the clubhouse view, yet players on the two holes won’t see each other until they reach the side-by-side greens.

Eagle Landing’s 18-hole, semi-private course opened for play in April 2006 and quickly became an area favorite. The 8,000-square-foot golf clubhouse offers a full-service restaurant, sports bar with five large screen televisions and a fully stocked pro shop staffed with PGA professionals.
