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.

Great Greens

Well taken care of. Greens brake the way you see it. Best putting Greens I've played this entire year. Course had an " old time" feel. Not to long, definitely some target holes, made you play a wide selection of clubs. Will be playing there again, soon. Real pleasure!

Pleasure to play

I found the course to be extremely fair, it has very senior friendly tees. Greens are extremely challenging but fair. I didn't play them but it you want an extreme challenge, strap on your big boy shoes and play the black tees, unbelievably loooong. Over all, very enjoyable. .Will definitely play there again on my next trip.

Practice area was closed, learned when we got there

That's my biggest beef. This course is obviously in the process of being built up, which is fine, and the green fees reflect this. However I do have a problem with the practice area being closed and not knowing it prior to showing up for my tee time. I showed up a full hour prior just to be able to hit balls and couldn't, so the communication is lacking. Many areas under repair, but did not think it was bad for what we paid to play there. Good, affordable golf, but need to work on informing those from out of town that the practice area is closed, especially during the season.

Great course. Long Round

As others have mentioned, pace is far too slow. We started about 15 late and waited at least 15 minutes on one tee box on the back side. Great course and in great shape.. just sucks the fun out of it when you’re waiting so long. Easily a 5 hour round

Hi Mr. Parsons,
Sorry the pace of play yesterday is not what was expected. I know any round we like to have a good pace to produce a good score. I know we try to create foursomes whenever possible which evens the speed between groups.

Nice course but play is s way too slow

The course is in good condition and the staff is friendly and helpful. Unfortunately there was no Marshall and pace of play was very slow. It was a very hot day and took 5 hours to play. That takes away the fun. Also there was no beverage cart so no opportunity to get ice or cold drinks except at the turn.

Love this course

The group that we come down with always wants to play this course. The people are friendly and the course is in fairly good condition. They were sodding a few places that had washed out due to excessive rain. We liked the greens and the challenge of the holes.

Great Long Challenging Course

This was a fun course. It was long and challenging. But as novice golfers, we walked away feeling good. The people who run this course are really the best part of the experience. Everyone was so hospitable. Instead of going to another course for our last day golfing, we are coming back to Eagles Nest Tomorrow!
