Eagle Nest

Eagle Nest is located just north of the bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway in Little River, South Carolina, in the heart of the Myrtle Beach area’s north end. Designed by Gene Hamm and opened in 1971, it is one of the venerable locations for golf in Myrtle Beach, now in its fifth decade of operation. It is a straightforward but intriguing challenge of a golf course, with medium-sized greens well defended by bunkers. There is relatively little water on the golf course, which cuts down on the potential for lost golf balls and makes the course especially playable for golfers with wide-ranging handicaps. Another contributing factor to the golf course’s playability is the lack of housing on or around the golf course. Eagle’s Nest is therefore a “core golf” experience.

One place where golf balls may be in danger at Eagle Nest, however, is on the final three holes, regarded as comprising one of the sternest finishing stretches on any area golf course. That stretch begins with the 449-yard par four 16th, a straightaway two-shotter with water guarding the front and left of the wide, shallow green and three bunkers guarding the rear. Next up, the par five 17th is one of the longest on the Grand Strand, checking in at a whopping 616 yards from the back Blue tees. A large pond must be crossed on the third shot to the elevated green, guarded by three bunkers, in order to have a prayer at a par, much less a birdie. Finally, the par-three 18th, at 185 yards from the tips, demands a solid middle-iron over yet another pond to yet another green guarded by three more bunkers.

The facilities at Eagle Nest are carefully crafted to match the aesthetic and feel of the golf course. The spacious driving range has a large grass hitting area and the championship putting green is built to mimic the speed and undulations found on the greens of the golf course. Indoors, Eagle Nest’s pro shop, snack bar and 19th hole all offer great merchandise, great food and drink before and after one’s appointed rounds.

Not much to say. An average place to play if you're looking for a "filler" course to play when not playing any of the good course. Nothing great to say about it, but nothing too bad to say about it either. The yardages seem to be a bit off though, and it's more of a "target golf" course so if you don't know where to hit it, you'll be in trouble.

Course is nice but greens are a bit rough and fairways can be dried out and hard giving long runs that can get you in trouble with water if you know what you normally hit. Best to take one club less if any chance of reaching water. At times I would get some 25 yards more than my normal tee shots. Tees are rough but playable. Greens putted pretty true and only had some problems when ball was hit soft and taking a few unexpected turns at times as though there were some unnoticeable depressions. Best to hit it firm when near the hole. Last three holes can be a bear but are still fun. Traps are well placed around greens and in good shape and still present decent openings to green if you don't want to go over them.

Greens are not in the best of shape.

Greens had recently been topped. I did not notice that information listed like the other courses, when I booked the tee time. They did not putt very true or consistently.

Eagle's Nest has maybe the fastest greens on the Grand Strand. The roll fast and true. The mini-verde grass that is now on the greens really putts well. The nest is an older course that has upgraded itself. The last 3 holes are as good as any finish on the Strand. If you have not played Eagles Nest recently, it is well worth a visit. Great Greens!
