Located in Little River, S.C., Eagle Nest opened in 1971 and was designed by Golf Course Architect Gene Hamm. The layout is laid out across 250 acres of gently rolling land, rare for a course near Myrtle Beach. The course has been upgraded recently and includes a set of "Perch" tee boxes that play over 8,100 yards, making it the state's longest golf course.

Super senior and player-friendly tee boxes up front have also been installed. This traditional low country layout features not only rolling undulations in it but mature Carolina pines, an abundance of wildlife and beautiful natural landscaping.

Not bad

Not a bad course. Many of the greens were sanded so putting wasn't that great on them and speed and lines were inconsistent.
Staff was extremely friendly and helpful.
Over all, not a bad course to play at all.
I'm glad I played it.

Excellent neighborhood course

Nice tree lined course, difficulty varies from hole to hole. Exciting water carry holes to long drive holes. Staff is extremely friendly real nice club house with the availability for drinks and food. My favorite about this course is the newly installed golf GPS on all carts.

Laid back

I don’t want to say it was easy, because golf never is, but if you’re a high handicap, you will love this place. Hazards are present but are usually tucked out of the way. It’s not fancy. The cart paths are mostly dirt. The tee boxes aren’t groomed but they’re fine. The greens were very nice and true to your line. The bunkers seem a little messy but certainly playable. I appreciated that the holes are short, which gives me a chance to get on in reg. I’ll play here every year for sure. They did have one temporary green, but that made for an easy par, and I need all the help I can get there.

Decent Course

Average course, 2 of the greens had temporary greens which was quite upsetting due to still paying $50 per person to play. The greens were in pretty good shape as well as the fairways. Pace of play was pretty slow, having to wait a few minutes before each shot made for a long day at the golf course.

Nice Course

This was a nice course, great for the money. Staff was incredibly friendly. The cart was running of of juice at the end but we made it through. The tee boxes were a little rough but again not too bad. Two holes had a temporary green so it was a little confusing, I passed a group that told me about the second one. Glad I played would highly recommend.

Nice Course

Very nice course for the money. Fairways were a little spotting on grass. Kind of hard to tell the difference between the rough and the fairway. Greens were in really good condition and a lot of movement. Would go back. Golf carts are on the old side. Had to stand on brake pedal to get mine to stop. Almost ran into another cart going to first Tee.

Overbooked

Don’t plan on this course if you’re in a hurry. They started us on the back 9 at 8:07a. The time we got back to hole 1 we had 6-8 carts in front of us waiting to hit as well as 15 carts behind us.

Perspective from the Red Tees

This course offered plenty of beautiful lush greens to look at throughout the course with swamp areas and water hazards. Most of the fairways were pretty wide which allowed me to keep my tee shots in play. Overall, the course conditions were better than most of the public courses in the area I have played with a few exceptions here and there. The greens were recently aerated and rolled pretty fast. Definitely worth the value and I would return here to play if in the area again.
