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.

Enjoyable Round

After a short frost delay, we played very quickly. Course was in good shape, although the greens were a little bit slow. Bunkers are nice and work has been done to reseed the tees as well. Staff are very friendly and professional. Would highly recommend it.

Loved the Course

The tee blocks needed to be trimmed, but otherwise a great course. You can see they are working on the fairways. Although the yardage looks short from the reds, the layout makes it challenging, especially with the water crossing the fairways. We loved having the GPS and course layout yardages included, we will definitely be back.

An OK outing at the Nest

Eagle Nest was an ok experience. Great layout, beautiful landscape but almost every fairway was in repair - trenches and sod. Looks like irrigation work. Greens were large, undulating and above average speed. All-in-all, a pleasant day at a good pace but lacking the return draw.

The greens were excellent!! The fairways we're alittle mudding from either rain or to much watering! Overall, nice course and would play again.

Slickest Greens ever experienced

Beautiful scenery/course. Greens were so slick, I think the pga needs to stimp meter them! Made par very , very difficult. Tee'd off back. Starter was EMPHATIC about keeping time(2hrs) . Kept saying "Your first tee time, so keep pace...(older gentlemen). When rounding out back 9- there 3 groups waiting one 1, a group in the fairway and a group on the green. We finished our round in 1hr50 min. Starter said we have to wait. unacceptable. I did receive a rain check from Travis in the clubhouse. His partner was very rude and condescending when I questioned the expiration date _partner changed it to current day- said "It doesn't expire. So did not get to finish since starter was not on first tee and had to drive around looking for him. Found him over near cart return. Was not too concerned with my situation as he was engaged in conversation with a woman. Expressed my discontent and left to get rain check. Would have liked to play front 9. Learned 2 holes were open on front. No one Marshalled, hence the back up. Never start off back if there is not a tee time for you making the turn!!
