Eagle Nest Golf Club provides all the beauty you expect at a South Carolina resort course. Gently rolling terrain. Tall pines line the fairways. Cypress trees growing in ponds; willow trees gracing their banks. But the natural beauty lies in how 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.
Eagle Nest Golf Club opened in 1971 and has hosted hundreds of thousands of golfers since. The beautiful Gene Hamm-designed golf course is an 18-hole Myrtle Beach championship public golf course. With the construction of two new sets of tees, it makes Eagle Nest the 3rd longest golf course in America at 8,168 yards, and one of the shortest at 3800 yards makes this gem the most playable course in the Carolina’s. Eagle Nest is built on 250 acres of pristine land in Little River, South Carolina, and only a short 5-minute drive from North Myrtle Beach. With the serene surroundings and beautiful natural setting, you can’t tell that you are less than one mile from busy Highway 17, making it very convenient.
Eagle Nest has some unique differences from other Myrtle Beach golf courses, one being natural elevation changes.
