Eagle Glen Golf Course
Eagle Glen Golf Course, Central Michigan's premier public facility, designed by Jerry Matthews will test your game on every level. Situated on 188 acres of rolling northern Michigan terrain, Ray Hearn and Jerry Matthews of Matthews and Associates have created a little corner or Scotland right here in central Michigan. Among the unique features of the course are bent grass tees, greens, and fairways. Eagle Glen consists of gigantic undulating greens, natural wetlands, 70 bunkers, and hundreds of mounds. Jim Neff of Michigan Golfer Magazine remarks on his experience at Eagle Glen; "It's hard to believe that Eagle Glen can get any better than it was the day I played it. It's a course that is so distinctively special that it should be on every golfer's must play list."
