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.

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.

Greens were punched and sanded, there was no notification on golf now at time of booking. Could have saved money by paying at the course, they were discounting green fees due to airification of the greens. Very disappointed with Golfnow for not posting a warning.

Played this course many times and always loved it. This time greens were pretty bad thru no fault of their own. It was a tough winter on all courses in this area. We could see improvement over a few weeks ago and expect continued improvement but I felt to be honest I had to take a star off.

Since they were airrating the greens we were only able to play the front nine. Interesting course. Nice variety with the holes,some water, some sand, some dog legs. I'd like to play it again when the whole course is open.

The fairways and tee boxes hadn’t been mowed in about a week. We got stuck behind some sort of golf trip that had an odd number of players so they were allowed to play a 5some. 5 hour round and inconsistent greens. You get what you pay for.

I’m on vacation in MB and as always, look to recent reviews for an enjoyable experience. After discovering many courses have suffered from winter time woes, I settled on Eagles Nest and came away very satisfied. Course offers a nice challenge and overall, good conditions. My only negative was the pace of play where I was paired up with two gents whose antics and preshot routines reminded me of what we see on TV. My numerous reminders to pick up our pace were dismissed. No ranger to enforce pace either.

I haven't played here in about 2 months. The work they have been doing the past two years on the course is starting to show. Clearing of trees, sprinkler and drainage systems, are all starting to pay off. This course is well worth the price and is in a lot better shape than some of the other course in the area.

We booked through GolfNow.com since we didn't know the area or courses, so we got a great deal. We played 3 courses this week, and the conditions at Eagle Nest were the best of the 3 courses. Pro shop was helpful and even gave us a "come back again" coupon which we ended up using that Saturday before we returned home to New England. There were definintely some challenging holes with the water hazards and bunker placement, especially the last three holes. Had a great time and will play there again when we come back to the Myrtle Beach area.

I was taken by the plushnes of this gem. Great layout with some challenging holes. The greens rolled true and the fairways were a joy to play from. No hardpan fairways here. My only 2 negatives were pace of play is horrible and only one fairway a slight drainage problem. Other than that...this is a must play course. Will definitely play this course again and everytime I come back. I played Beachwood as well....this course is BETTER! My opinion. 11 handicap

I love playing this course. I play there multiple times per month and have for serveral years. The staff is always friendly. However, my last 4 rounds there have been 5 hours plus! Weekend and middle of week. There certainly needs to be more of a marshall presence to speed up the pace of play. When it takes 5-6 hours to play a round of 18, it somewhat takes the enjoyment out of it.
