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.

Eagle Nest Review

Course ok for January. On arrival starter was helpful in explaining the course. Pro shop staff acted like they hate their job. End of round I was sarcastically told thanks for the generous tip when he did absolutely nothing. I took the clubs off the cart and took them to the car previously. Will not return to this course. Many other options to choose from.

A good place to play

A well maintained course with a good layout. Playing right before new years the grass was a little thin or dormant in the fairways but still provided good hit able lies. Greens were firm but rolled well. I look forward to playing it again in the Summer months to see what it looks like then.

Course with character. Fairways and tees in good condition, however greens had been sanded and were quite gritty.

Great Value

Eagle Nest is a great value and course is in very good condition. The traps were all redone in 2020 and greens are in good condition. Staff is very friendly. Only caveat is course does not drain well so can have standing water on fairways if it has rained slot

Nice scenery.

The greens were not kept up. Pine straw leaves and other debris on every whole except 2.. number 17 green has so much sand on it we thought it use to be a bunker.

Grounds crew issues

I had the occasion to play Eagles Nest in September and this week. Both times the staff was amazing and the course challenging for our groups. Both times, however, the grounds crew were inconsiderate while we were playing. Both round the crew would drive by us while trying to hit with no regard to standards of etiquette. This trip, who I imagined was the head grounds keeper drove up on the fringe of the green while a member of our group was attempting to putt to ask us to wait on their crew to overseed the greens. A crew that we had been waiting on for 3 holes in a row. It was a frustrating experience.

This is Myrtle Beach golf? No thanks!

We were told Eagles Nest was a great value. We were unimpressed. Anyone who was nice seemed like they had to be...one cart attendant was the nicest person there.

Tee boxes were bad, fairways in horrible shape. No early morning maintenance on the course. We teed of at 9:30 and they were spraying liquid fertilizer on the greens and overseeding. The guy overseeding just stayed on the fairway and, in fact, told US to move.

$59 for a less than mediocre experience. It wasnt worth $29.
