Eagle Sticks Golf Club

Practically from the minute it opened its doors in the early 1990s, EagleSticks Golf Club earned a reputation as one of the finest golf courses in Ohio and basked in the sun of national recognition. Yet earning a reputation is one thing, living up to it is another.

So it¹s no small accomplishment that today¹s EagleSticks is as special as the day the Zanesville course opened its doors, and expectedly, the acclaim, both national and local, continues to shower on the course.

Built on the site of the scenic McClelland family horse farm, EagleSticks was nominated this year for Golf Digest¹s prestigious ³America¹s 100 Greatest Public Golf Course² list. Rated highly for characteristics such as shot value, course conditions and design quality, EagleSticks impressed the Golf Digest¹s ³Top 100² panel for good reason. The course occupies some 150 acres of rolling farmland and features numerous and gorgeous waterfalls, more than 130 sand bunkers and breathtaking vistas that keep golfers coming back time and again. The layout¹s bentgrass fairways and bluegrass rough flow seamlessly together and are always in pristine condition.
This year¹s recognition from Golf Digest, however, isn¹t the course¹s first praise from the national golf publication. The course was recognized by Golf Digest in 1992 as ³The Nation¹s Second Best New Daily Fee Golf Course and has maintained a 4 star rating ever since. The acclaim continued several years later, when EagleSticks was named the publication¹s ³No. 1 Public Course in the State of Ohio² in 1997. That the praise for EagleSticks has continued through its first decade-plus of existence speaks volumes not only of the course¹s design, but also its staff¹s commitment to detail and the value ownership places on tradition and dedication to hard work.

Conveniently located just off I-70, EagleSticks was created by Dr. Michael Hurdzan to both challenge and stimulate golfers of all levels. A compact course that favors accuracy over power, EagleSticks stretches to only 6,508 yards from the tips. Multiple teeing areas and more generous, undulating greens make the course playable for golfers of any skill level.

Ron Whitten, Golf Digest¹s senior editor, said this of EagleSticks: ³Michael Hurzdan Design Group squeezed out a dazzling, compact layout from an old horse farm.²

Well-deserved praise for a course that offers the ultimate golf experience and a whole lot more.

EagleSticks is a favorite for groups putting together golf outings. The experienced staff will orchestrate all facets of your outing, including tournament setup and results, special contests and even full-service catering.

Not only is the course a great place to play, but it¹s also a great place to improve your game. EagleSticks features quality instruction with Head Professional Kelly Morrow, who has been with the course since 1992, logging more than 2,000 hours of instruction. The course features great practice facilities and can accommodate groups or individual instruction.
