Eagle Point Golf Club

General Course DescriptionEagle Point golf

Eagle Point Golf Club is a very attractive, well maintained 18-hole target course north of Medford. The course is considered semi-private because blocks of tee times are reserved for members. Eagle Point Golf Club has a bit of everything with trees, traps, water, bends, and hills. It has very good facilities and a great staff. It is well past its troubled economic history and now is well maintained and lives up to its occasional Golf Digest ranking as one of the best courses in Oregon. Forward tees provide shorter distances and better angles. The course is easily walkable (save one long, uphill gap between the 15th green and 16th tee).

Course History

Built in 1996. Once a hay-growing operation, Gregg Adams and Dan Bunn contacted Robert Trent Jones, Jr., about designing and constructing a golf course as part of a housing development. With the recession, the development filed for Chapter 11 and the development (with the course) was transferred to an entity of the lender. Bob Hyer, through his company, Hyer Golf, LLC, purchased the development and, being a well-heeled avid golfer, provided the funds to maintain and improve the course. Hotel lodgings were added near the range and the 9th hole. In 2021, ownership was transferred to EPPL Golf, LLC, part of the Parks Legacy Project, helping public and private sectors find ways to preserve open space. The course hosted the OGA Tournament of Champions in 1997 and Oregon Open in 2001.

Why It Is ThereEagle Point golf

Built as part of a large housing development.

I Wish I Would Have Known Before I Played

Hole 6 is the number 1 handicap hole (because of the persistent water and numerous traps, as well as length). On the approach shot the trap on the left is well before the green, and behind the trap the fairway gently goes down to the hole (so it’s a nice way to approach). In addition, the green on Hole 11 slopes away from the fairway and has a hog’s back, taking balls to the right on the front and to the left in the back.

Did You Know

The totem pole between the second green and third tee was given to Mr. Jones as a gift from a golf course owner in British Columbia, which Mr. Jones placed on a focal point of the course. The pole was carved by George Gull, Sr., and has five elements: eagle (representing intellect and resourcefulness), wolf (denoting help people that are sick or in need), raven (a mercurial trickster), beaver (symbolizing creativity and determination), and salmon (symbolizing instinct and persistence).

Good For Them

When the local school stopped funding the golf teams, the course and its members donated the course and their time to allow the teams to practice and to receive instruction. The course is the practice course for Crater Lake and Eagle Point High Schools.

Why Play This CourseEagle Point golf

If you are in Medford, this is a “must-play” course. A well- maintained Robert Trent Jones, Jr., course with very good amenities and a really nice staff. There are also more “freebies” than most courses (tees, markers, ball mark repair, yardage book). All for a pretty good price.
