East Course

The East Course was designed by George Fazio and his nephew Tom.

It opened for play in 1974. This 7011 yard, par 72 course features wide fairways with well bunkered and challenging green complexes. The East proves to be playable, yet a challenge for players of all skill levels. With its emerald green bermuda grass, shimmering lakes and rolling fairways, this course was designed to delight the senses as much as it was designed to make you want to come back for another round.

Eastpointe Country Club East Course has retained its designation as a "Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary" through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses, an Audubon International program. John Spiwak, Director of Golf and Grounds, led the effort to maintain sanctuary status on this course. Eastpointe Country Club East Course was designated as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary in 2011 and is one of 888 courses in the world to currently be designated as such.  

The Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses, endorsed by the United States Golf Association, provides information and guidance to help golf courses preserve and enhance wildlife habitat, and protect natural resources. Golf courses from the United States, Africa, Australia, Canada, Central America, Europe, Mexico, and Southeast Asia have achieved certification in the program.  

"Eastpointe Country Club East Course has shown a strong commitment to its environmental program. They are to be commended for preserving the natural heritage of the area by protecting the local watershed and providing a sanctuary for wildlife on the golf course property," said Christine Kane, Executive Director at Audubon International.  

"To reach certification, a course must demonstrate that they are maintaining a high degree of environmental quality in a number of areas," explained Kane. These categories include: Environmental Planning, Wildlife & Habitat Management, Outreach and Education, Chemical Use Reduction and Safety, Water Conservation, and Water Quality Management. Courses go through a recertification process every three years.  

Audubon International is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Troy, NY. In addition to golf courses, Audubon International also provides programs for businesses, schools, communities, and new developments with the purpose of delivering high-quality environmental education and facilitating the sustainable management of natural resources.

Hole 1

Par 5

Men's Handicap: 9
Women's Handicap: 5

The first hole is a long straight par 5 where a birdie is within reason. Off the tee, OB left brings the fairway bunker on the right into play for the long hitter. Be sure to stay right of the fairway bunkers when laying up. Distance control is key when approaching this multi-tiered green.
