Eagle Island State Park
My wife and I drove out to eagle islad yesterday, we were actually very excited to play this course. We have not played a course that was more of a let down. This course needs some serious grooming, they give you about 25 to 30 feet of fairway to hit with a driver. The rest of the course is 2.5' to 3' tall skeleton weed, ckeek grass, and other native grasses. If you are not a pro you will lose disks here! We played 2 holes, and after looking for a couple of disks for almost an hour. (We found them) We picked cheek grass out of our socks and shoes for an hour and a half.
My wife and I go play different courses because we enjoy the different challenges and the difficulties. This course is by far the worst I have ever been at if not the worst in the state. They allow skeleton weed to grow wild instead of trying to control it. If you do decide to play this course go at dawn wear long pants and high boots.
I played the winter (south side) and summer (north) courses in mid-February. It was a little tough to follow the layout on the south course. I'm glad I printed a map ahead of time. The south course had a decent variety of shots and elevation change. Watch out for #7! A guy I was playing who overshot his drive and landed on the ice and had to take a scary walk on thin ice to get it back.
The north course was tough because the lake is never too far away. It was getting windier every minute I was there and I played pretty poorly because I was afraid to land a disc on the water/thin ice. I would like to play again in better weather conditions. Overall, it was a good play and worth a trip over if you're in the area. Idaho residents would be wise to buy a $10 year-long state park pass so they save some entrance fee money.
Price is now $5 to park, not a bad park the holes are set up nicely. Hole markers are on the ground and pretty hard to spot. Gave it 3 links cause you have to pay and it takes some time for first timers to the course.
