Three Eagles Golf Course offers 18 well-designed holes. The course is a par 72 for men and a par 71 for women. At 6,375 yards the course is short in distance but tough in scoring. Four sets of tees allow for a great golf experience at any level of play.

The course has tight fairways, strategic landing areas and well bunkered “postage stamp” greens, with the first four holes winding through Carolina pines tee to green. Demanding accuracy midway through the round, three beautifully manicured par 3s are in a stretch of four holes. Finish the round with a par 5, guarded throughout by water, trees, OB and environmentally protected hazards; one of three par 5s in the final five holes presents an opportunity for birdies and a strong finish.
