Rating 72.2
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.

Nice layout, especially the last three holes

The course was a little soft on a few holes due to rain the day before I suspect. There are also a couple of areas under repair but nothing that prevent you from playing the hole. Greens were in very good shape. I just wish I could have seen the breaks. I would definitely play this course again.

Nice layout

They got us out before our tee time which was a plus. Rain was heading in within a few hrs. The staff are friendly and helpful. The course was in pretty good condition. There were a few holes that were wet and we had to play cart path only on those holes but all in all a well laid out course. The finishing holes specifically 17 and 18 are great. I would definitely play again.

Great at the Nest

Everything was great at this course. Some repairs being made to the fairways but no big deal. I want to give a special shout out to Roger the cart loader who was super pleasant and to Gene the grounds keeper who took the time to make me feel welcome.

Good value

We (4) play Myrtle Beach are every year and Eagles Nest is one of our favourites. Great value for the $$$. Nice course layout. Greens were a little hard to read (time of year).

We'll be back...

Pace of play a bit slow. Demanding course. Great layout. Rolling hills for Myrtle. You will use most of your bag.

Course in Very Good Shape

The golf course was in very good shape despite the recent hurricane littering most of the courses in the area with tree limbs or uprooted trees. The greens were in very good shape, rolled very well. Rest of the course was good as well, apart from some areas that were undergoing renovation work before the summer began, but the 17th green is now playable,(no more temporary green). The area from 100 yards to the green on the 16th hole is still grassless, all sandy soil, making me wonder if it wouldn't work better having that area as a massive waste area (but the hole would have to be shortened, since it's a long Par 4, often requiring average players to lay up short of the green with their second shot. Speaking of sand, the greenside bunkers are the best bunkers I have seen all year, soft, sugary sand, a joy to play out of.
