Eagle’s Bluff Country Club

Eagle's BluffEagle’s Bluff is without a doubt East Texas’ finest country club.  Located in in Bullard on the bluffs of Lake Palestine, the clubhouse, golf course, staff, and home sites are unlike anything else around.

The par 71 Championship golf course, designed by Carlton Gipson, is one of the longest in East Texas, featuring a distance of 6,977 yards from the back tees.  The course runs through one of the most beautiful neighborhoods around, and is lined by dogwoods, mature hardwoods, and azaleas.

My personal experience of the golf course is limited, as I’ve only played a couple of rounds, but what I can attest to is the fabulousness which is the clubhouse.  The grounds are beautiful, and the clubhouse itself is nothing short of magnificent.  The French Country style facility hosts formal and casual dining, player lounges, and a full service golf pro shop.   I had my wedding reception in one of the banquet rooms, and all my guests were blown away not only by the location, but by the friendly and attentive people who work at Eagle’s Bluff.  I worked with an event coordinator, and she made sure that everything was perfectly taken care of so my night would be everything I could have ever imagined.

My husband and I also enjoyed our first Valentine’s Day as a married couple last year at Eagle’s Bluff for their spectacular five course menu created especially for that occasion.  It was beyond wonderful and we both enjoyed every minute (and bite) of it.  I liked it so much that when I was put in charge of planning my company Christmas party, I immediately knew it HAD to be at Eagle’s Bluff.  Once again, all our guests loved it, and everyone had a wonderful time.  We had a private room and a special menu, and everything about it was perfect.  I’d definitely do it again next year.

In addition to the restaurant and golf course, Eagle’s Bluff also offers their members swimming, a fitness center, and tennis.  Each year they host a Fourth of July fireworks show on the course and last year they opened it up to the public and it drew quite a crowd.  For anyone planning a romantic evening, a special event, or a round of golf, Eagle’s Bluff is definitely worth a look.

  1. we live here. the country club is nice but not spectacular. Go to Sun City in Georgetown if you want spectacular. This one is nicer on the Outside.
    Lots of rules. Small yards. No garage sales or clotheslines or cars parked on the street or barking dogs or yard decorations ‘that can be seen from the road.’ After living in the country it’s stifling. But really pretty, winding roads and mansions and big trees. QUIET. FRIENDLY TO A POINT.
    TAxes of 5K per year unlike what they told us before we bought in. $120 a month “social membership” meaning if you want to play ANY golf or EVER go to the pool (no lifeguards)or eat at the club (not cheap) you have to pay. Lots of little boys; haven’t seen ONE girl. Distance to substantial grocery? 4.5 miles; same for a great clinic, Sonic and the Goodwill trailer is in the grocery parking lot which is very handy. A dentist and nice gas station is 3 miles away.
    If you are retired, want quiet and have no dogs but lots of $$ it’s a real nice place to live.

  2. The clubhouse has a wonderful, old English feel to it. The staff make the place friendly, unpretentious, and inviting.

    We’re doing a special wine pairing menu with our wines here!

  3. $300 a month to play golf but lots of luck
    getting to play. They either have a tournament going so the members can’t play or they’re working on the greens. No wonder I read that someone was puzzled as to why no one was playing when they drove through here. If you want to buy here, insist on FULL disclosure of the prices including taxes. Our water/trash bill was over $100. It’s an expensive place to live. Good food, though.
