Situated amid a beautiful natural setting in the scenic foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, just north of Atlanta in Woodstock, Georgia, the course at Eagle Watch has the kind of character and power one would expect from its designer, Arnold Palmer. With fairways surrounded by wooded hills, ponds and creeks add challenge and interest to the layout, this club will almost certainly bring out the best golf in every player.

The Arnold Palmer-designed course was built in August of 1989 and it has consistently ranked among the top places to play in Atlanta by golfing publications. Eagle Watch is a traditional-style course with a number of dramatic elevation changes and water features that protect 10 of the 18 holes. Eagle Watch’s signature hole is the very picturesque No. 14, where the drama is all about the lake that protects the front and right side of a sloping, two-tiered green.

To my knowledge, this is the first and one of only a few Arnold Palmer designs in the state of Georgia. This is a private club that is very spread out, and navigates through a very large residential community. There are two things I really like about this course. The first is that you can only see one fairway per hole, there are no paralell or intersecting golf holes. This gives you a real sense of privacy and tranquility. Even though most of the fairways have houses on both sides,they are far off and seldom come into play. The second thing I really like about this course is that many of the fairways are concave, very bowl like. So an errant shot to the left or right can get kicked back into play. The champion bermuda greens are always in great shape and have incredible undulations and many of the breaks are very subtle. There are some pin postions that are beyond mean at this club, a full round without a three putt is a helluva accomplishment. There are many lakes and streams throughout the club, and a few swampy areas requirng heroic forced carries. Fairways for the most part are tree lined and many deer and wildlife throughout. It is just a great all around members club. The clubhouse is modest, but the food is great and they have many events and theme nights for the members As a member here, have played hundreds of rounds, and it is one of the great golf deals in the Atlanta area. There are two areas this club could improve upon. The first is they keep it very lush and green. From an aesthetics standpoint that is great, but the course plays very soft and feels like it plays hundreds of yards more than the stated yardages , you just don't get much roll. A little brown on the fairways would do this club well. Secondly, there are many sand traps and their condition does not seem to be a priority, They need more sand and after a heavy rain they are an absolute mess, so maybe in 2018 the bunkers get some "love" here. Overall, a fun venue, a fair test of golf. Some members do walk, but it is a very tough one, with long distances between some holes and a few killer hills. You want a workout, you will get it here! Eagle Watch is part of the Club Corp family of courses and if you are visiting in the northwest part of the city, would definatlely recommend the club.
