Rating 72.2
Type Public
Eagle Nest provides all the beauty you would expect at a South Carolina resort course. Gently rolling terrain. Tall pines lining the fairways. Cypress trees growing in ponds; willow trees gracing their banks. But the real beauty lies in the way architect Gene Hamm set up the course. Hamm starts you off easy, giving you a virtually straight-away par five, handicap 14, stretching 492 yards from the whites. Then follows that with a delightful little 332 yard par four, dogleg right, handicap 16. And by the time you make your way around the ponds and pines through the next thirteen holes, you'll be ready for Hamm's big finale, what many consider the three toughest finishing holes on the Grand Strand.

On the whole an enjoyable experience. Was a little upset that we weren’t told that #17 was a temporary green. It messed up our gps distance.

be aware of winter damage

The front nine was fine but the back nine, expecially 16,17.18 were horrible. Course is working in them but putting on the greens was awful. Having to put through areas of replaced sod around the greens was miserable. They didn't fare well with this past winters" cold and ice.

Save Your Money

I really have to question how individuals could rate this course above 3 stars, even being generous. Recent reviews mentioned the condition of the greens, however they were beyond awful. Several were being replaced and only have about 1/2 to 1/3 of the green playable. Even the playable greens were ridiculous. I only booked it as a last minute hot deal to get in a quick round and I am glad I didn't spend more than $23.00. The layout wasn't terrible, tee boxes were alright, fairways fair. I would not play this course again, even if someone else paid for my round.

Nice course

Beautiful course but some greens were in very bad shape and they didnt give us a heads up about the greens. They even asked us if we’ve played here before but left that part out. Still one of the best courses ive played in the area.
