Opened 1983, Tournament Players Club (TPC) Eagle Trace is a private non-equity club. The course is an Arthur Hills design. Hills approached this project with a very traditional and historic perspective. A blend of Scotland and Florida, the course is very natural and relates well to the land, keeping in mind the strategy of the game and the elements that provide beauty in a golf course - textures and colors, shadowing and framing.
Home to the PGA TOUR's Honda Classic for nine years, TPC Eagle Trace is replete with lush, rolling serpentine fairways and narrow greens, which are often angled away from the player. There are relatively few bunkers, 27 greenside and 14 elsewhere, and a number of the latter are large waste areas. Nevertheless, the purpose of the sand appears more for framing and contrast rather than as a hazard. Perhaps that is because water hazards in the form of lakes and streams are omnipresent. Players must contend with water on all but two holes -- the ninth and 18th. Combine this with the absence of any true doglegs, and there is an unmistakable premium on straight shots with the proper distance control.
Many of the greens on the par-72 layout, which measures 5,106 yards for women and up to 7,040 yards from the TPC tees, are elevated, but Hills provides some of his patented bailout areas for stray shots or safe plays. That is especially prevalent on the collection of harrowing par-3 holes.
