Eagle Bend Golf Course

category : Golf Courses
Eagle Bend Golf Course Eagle Bend is the first golf course owned and operated by the City of Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department. The City received the land by leasing 1,500 acres from the Army Corporation of Engineers to develop a recreational environment much needed by the growing Lawrence community. The course boasts beautiful Crenshaw/Cato Creeping Bentrass greens and lush rye and bluegrass fairways and tees.

Eagle Bend is designed along the Old Wakarusa River channel located below the Clinton Reservoir dam. As a member of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary program for golf courses, Eagle Bend is dedicated to continuing the preservation of the environment and habitat of wildlife. Much wildlife inhabits Eagle Bend, including rabbits, red foxes, coyotes, deer, quail, blue heron, muskrats, turtles, eagles, hawks, Canadian geese, woodpeckers, fish and snakes.

The first six holes on the course are open with no trees. The remaining holes are heavily wooded and sit in the shadow of the Wakarusa River. The bald eagle is indigenous to the area and played a major role in the naming of the course. During its construction, bald eagle sightings were plentiful and can still be seen in the fall and early spring.Since the river bends around the course, the name Eagle Bend was a natural. No signature hole is designated, but a consensus favors No. 16, a 560-yard par 5 with a split fairway, and No. 17, an elevated 165-yard par 3 with the river channel cutting across the entire front side of the green
