Easton Country Club

by Jim Hammond

Golf is most enjoyable when you walk, and Easton County Club is a course made for walking. e course is flat, but with water coming into play on 10 of the 18 holes the design is anything but boring. e fairways are generous and the greens are large and receptive to your approach shots. Easton Country Club is a family owned business and they do the little things to make you feel welcome. For example, the scorecard includes a full color map of each hole and yardages from tee to green. e last course I played charged $5.00 for a yardage book. e first hole is a 448 yard from the back tee, but can still be reached in two shots. It has not rained for a long time, but the fairways are plush and the greens roll true. e real fun starts at the 297 yard par 4 third hole that has a small pond in front of the green. It’s only 190 yards to the front of the pond so you can lay up with a middle iron, or aim left where a strip of fairway tempts you to hit a low shot and try for an eagle. e 175 yard par 3 is a scenic hole with a pond guarding the huge green. e back nine starts with 348 yard par 4 with a pond on the right of the fairway, and a marsh on the left. I went with a 5 metal and only needed a 7 iron to get home in two shots e demanding 17th hole is a 450 yard par 4 dogleg, with a pond guarding the right side of the fairway. e first 220 yards is all uphill but if you can carry the corner you have a reasonable chance to reach this number one handicap hole in regulation. Easton Country Club will help you with special functions from golf tournaments to a full service wedding package that includes custom design packages.
