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.

The course was lush and green, the weather was perfect and our overall impression of the course was good. The pace of play was somewhat slow, but as a twosome, we just enjoyed the outing. For this early in the season the course is in good shape. We would be happy to play it again soon.

Played Eagle Nest for the 1st time this week.. Got a reasonable rate from My Golf ($35) and after checking the reviews, I was very curious. Well, like most things, the truth lies somewhere in the middle.......far from great, excellent, fantastic, but far from terrible. Very average layout and conditions compared to many MB courses that we have played recently.

The pace was slow, but tolerable, as the couple I played with were enjoyable and I wasn't in any hurry.....and was shooting my handicap!

The ball/club washer on the cart had no water in it and when I went out of my way to fill it, it quickly drained.

If the owner/manager really wants feedback, there needs to be contact with the responder, not merely platitudes.

We arrived to have our cart set up and ready to go! We were coupled with two nice guys that made our pace of play perfect! The course was in great shape except hole #16 which they were doing some work to stop flooding, I'm assuming. The grounds we're lovely with all the dogwoods and Azalea bushes in bloom. The greens were fast and hadn't been long areorated. I'm sure we will play again!

Terrible greens and nasty bunkers, The worst was the pace of play, after 4 hours on the course we only reached the 11th hole - too many golfers on the course. We ended up calling it quits after 11 holes. Save your money, this course is not worth the frustration.

I booked an early tee time to avoid the rush and was the first allowed to go out as a single. The course was in excellent shape with the fairways and greens in great condition. The sand traps, which I managed to find, were also in very good shape. A good course for a high handicap player as the fairways are generous and not too much water to navigate. The staff were very friendly and I would recommend this course.

First time playing this year and we were impressed that there was green grass everywhere. Fairways & greens were in good condition considering the cold March weather. The course did a great job on overseeding and watering the course! Would definitely recommend this course.

Came to SC with this course being highly recommended. MAJOR disappointment. Greens are the worst I’ve ever played. Fairways are beaten down & not well maintained. Even the staff says this course is one of the worst in the area. Do yourself a favor and pick Litchfield or Tradition instead.
