Eagle Nest Golf Club
Eagle Nest Golf Club in North Myrtle Beach is not just known for its challenging length and gleaming lakes, but for the pristine wildlife that inhabits the course, including an eagle that is known to nest in one of the many Carolina pines. This course has been on the Myrtle Beach map for decades and many golfers migrate to play here, year after year. The course was renovated in 2001 from tee to green and features Bermuda fairways and greens with gentle contours and generous playing areas. Although this course has been named “a gentle giant,” you will find it an easy challenge to conquer, even with the length swinging at 7,000 yards!
Your round will no doubt be pleasurable, but Eagle Nest is also renowned for creating memories with the “Grand Strand’s Toughest” final three holes. The sequence of the three final holes include: par 4, par 5 and finishing hole par 3, each which contain plenty of water and present a tricky challenge. Be prepared to carry water on these holes. The biggest carry will be on the par 3 #18, at 150 yards from the back tees. Having the most challenging holes positioned on the last three is the reason why this course has been one of the most popular courses in the North Myrtle beach area for more than 40 years and counting.

Very nice layout and in very good shape. Greens were in great shape.
GeorgeDate Played: 07/20/2019
Great course, second time playing it. Only issue was a few of the fairways recently had drains installed, the grass hasn't grown back yet. Staff was friendly, price was right, will play again.
GeorgeDate Played: 06/17/2019
Lots of construction and maintenance going on. Normally a beautiful course, but right now it’s the pits.

Great Golf Course

Great layout. Fun course. We were a 4some with two women. Good course for them...not many forced carries.
QuentinDate Played: 12/28/2015
JohnDate Played: 07/30/2015
Course is nice but greens are a bit rough and fairways can be dried out and hard giving long runs that can get you in trouble with water if you know what you normally hit. Best to take one club less if any chance of reaching water. At times I would get some 25 yards more than my normal tee shots. Tees are rough but playable. Greens putted pretty true and only had some problems when ball was hit soft and taking a few unexpected turns at times as though there were some unnoticeable depressions. Best to hit it firm when near the hole. Last three holes can be a bear but are still fun. Traps are well placed around greens and in good shape and still present decent openings to green if you don't want to go over them.

Greens are not in the best of shape.
RobertDate Played: 06/09/2015
Greens had recently been topped. I did not notice that information listed like the other courses, when I booked the tee time. They did not putt very true or consistently.
BryanDate Played: 06/06/2015
Greens were in rough shape.
RoyDate Played: 05/15/2015

Club head cleaners on carts and coolers for drinks.
MikeDate Played: 01/30/2015
Eagle's Nest has maybe the fastest greens on the Grand Strand. The roll fast and true. The mini-verde grass that is now on the greens really putts well. The nest is an older course that has upgraded itself. The last 3 holes are as good as any finish on the Strand. If you have not played Eagles Nest recently, it is well worth a visit. Great Greens!
RickDate Played: 01/05/2015
Nice, challenging but fair course. Great condition for Jan. Thick overseed and smooth fast greens.
TomDate Played: 01/04/2015
Variety of hole layouts.
PaulDate Played: 12/03/2014
The play was slow due to cart path only. The last 3 holes were as advertised very tough.

Ladies tees gave us a great break most of the time. Fairways were well groomed and great.
ChrisDate Played: 07/24/2014
Need a starter at hole one and a ranger on the course. Didn't like the sand covering the greens. The practice green was nothing like the greens on the course. If people do not wish to use bag drop the attendant needs to allow that and respect that. And no need to be grumpy in the morning to a person about to give you a tip. Overall good experience.
WilliamDate Played: 07/24/2014
Liked the layout; played here several yrs. ago and course is in much better condition now than then; things seemed slow so not much staff around.

RobertDate Played: 01/28/2014
I enjoyed playing an early morning foursome the other day. It was the first time for me at Eagles Nest. The course layout and conditions were excellent. We look forward to playing again soon.
LukeDate Played: 01/22/2014
Very friendly staff, great feel to the course.
JohnDate Played: 11/19/2013
This course is very fair with expansive fairways and excellent water features. The greens are very well tended and subtle breaks require a good read if you want to make birdie.
DavidDate Played: 11/19/2013
Overall the course was good and I'd play it again. Nice layout and the ranger was friendly and helpful. Young lady at the grill was courteous even when very busy. Played November 15, 2013
DirkDate Played: 11/19/2013
I have played this course several times and I enjoyed it. It is a good challenge for golfers of all skill levels.
TerryDate Played: 11/15/2013
Love playing at Eagles Nest, course is player friendly and in good shape. Would like to see the gold Tee boxes moved back away from the Red Tee boxes. Would also like to see the grass on the fairways a little higher, feel that they are cut to short
PatDate Played: 10/23/2013
My husband & I , as well as my 3 girlfriends golfed here twice. The pro-shop cashier, Rick, was accommodating, during the extremely busy time & the starter, John, was very personable. We will highly recommend this course & are looking forward to coming back.
PamelaDate Played: 10/18/2013
For the price, the course was in good shape. Staff was efficient. I enjoyed the experience.
SamDate Played: 10/18/2013
The course provides a challenge for all ranges of proficiency and is a good track for the money. Staff friendly and professional.
RobertDate Played: 08/01/2013
Great course. Beautiful landscapes. no rain covers on back of carts was really the lone downfall. Is go back.
RobertDate Played: 05/23/2013
All is well
KennethDate Played: 03/12/2013
Usually dry this time of year and quite playable.
KirkDate Played: 03/11/2013
Beautiful layout and surroundings, but course is in bad need of repair. Fairways are tolerable, greens are terrible and appear to be painted or stained a green color. The rough is nonexistent in most areas. This would be a beautiful coarse when someone invest in the maintenance and up keep of greens.
ToddDate Played: 05/08/2012
I played this course about 18 months ago and was disappointed this time. The course does not appear to be well maintained. The greens were ragged and slow and the grass in the fairways was barely grown in and spotty. It was still fun to play 16, 17 and 18, but if conditions don't improve, Eagle Nest could be off the rotation for a while.
BillDate Played: 04/25/2012
3rd time played course. Very disappointed in the shape of the course. Greens were in terrible condition. Excuse was no rain, but other course we played was in better shape. Like the layout, but our group won't play it until they improve the course.
BillDate Played: 04/23/2012
Liked some of the hole layouts. Some greens were thin and had a green filler in places. Not what you would expect at this price. Pro shop was nice and attendant was very accommodating and knowledgeable.
RonDate Played: 04/18/2012
Greens, tees and traps are in very good condition. Course conditions are greatly improved since 5-6 years ago. Joe and staff are always helpful and accommodating. Lots of birds and squirrels.
BrianDate Played: 03/22/2012
Course is well laid out. Very fair and challenge is there if you want it. Was not impressed with grass condition of fairways or greens. Also, tees are too narrow and not level. 16, 17 18 really are great finishing holes.
SteveDate Played: 03/05/2012
Fair course, nice layout.
AlDate Played: 03/05/2012
Much better than when we played it in '02.
JohnDate Played: 12/30/2011
It was so quiet and super nice, but it rained.
MarkDate Played: 11/07/2011
Unfortunately it rained, only played 6 holes.
Dave/DaleDate Played: 10/19/2011
For an old course, it was fun to play. It appears that the owner/management group keep cost to a minimum. But, the course was still a fun round.
LarryDate Played: 10/18/2011
Would have played somewhere else if I had known the greens would be top dressed with sand. Very disappointed.
WilliamDate Played: 08/15/2011
Thought the layout was excellent.
ChrisDate Played: 07/27/2011
Played on a Sunday morning in July. Got a tee time the day before, and the course was not very busy. Paid $35 and honestly was a little bit let down. Just expect more when I play at the beach but there was good and bad. The good - not crowded at all, friendly staff, and good layout with some challenging holes and some carries over water, but not ridiculously long carries. The last three holes are really fun but I don't know about them being the 3 toughest finishing holes on the Grand Strand. I played the last 3 holes at 2 over par and lipped out a par putt on 17, but like I said still fun. The bad - course was not in great shape. You could tell that parts of the fairway were not hit by the irrigation system. I understand it's hot and summer and dry, but the parts of the fairways that were getting water had not been cut in several days. In many places the rough was shorter than the fairways. The grass on many of the tee boxes was also rather long. Finally, the greens were very sandy and slow. Not a bad course but I will probably not go back. Too many other good courses around.
KennethDate Played: 05/14/2011
Everyone was nice and the course was OK. Not sure I'd play here again with all of the other options in the area. The last three holes were the most fun.
NancyDate Played: 11/10/2010
Everyone at Eagle Nest was very nice and helpful. We loved the clubhouse, especially the side room where you could smoke and look out and see the course, it was a beautiful view. Our favorite holes were 16, 17 and 18. Would definitely play again ...
JohnDate Played: 11/09/2010
We questioned whether the course should have even been played. So much rain the night before, standing water in every fairway, ofter had trouble finding a reasonable position to shoot from.
WilliamDate Played: 10/29/2010
Very friendly greens, had sand on them but those things happen. Will make it a must-play next year!
AngeloDate Played: 09/27/2010
Can't believe they didn't have any food in grill other than a hot dog. Not even fruit. No food or drink cart either on the course. The pro shop attendant was completely unfriendly when we checked in.
MarkDate Played: 06/21/2010
Really like the squirrels who came up to us, and the crows that stole a Cliff Bar out of the cart was too funny. We had a hard time on the fairways that were being aerated. The maintenance people are not very considerate of guests as they go flying by, and don't consider the noise they are making. No water fountain at the restroom and nobody out on the course offering drinks. The bathroom in the clubhouse is nice, but don't try to sit down on the toilet, you almost have to sit sideways. It was way to small for the average man. The last 2 holes are tough but challenging.
GlennDate Played: 04/28/2010
First time playing. Beautiful course, both in layout and foliage, very visually impressive. Staff very helpful and courteous. Last three holes maintain their reputation, though mainly due to yardage discrepancies. A laser range-finder or GPS could have helped.
ChrisDate Played: 04/25/2010
Very pretty course ... Had a bit of trouble finding it as the general course map I had wasn't specific as far as directions (hwys/roads) go.
DavidDate Played: 04/22/2010
Some of the greens were recovering from winter conditions.
JohnDate Played: 04/10/2010
Everything was great about this course. This was the third time we have played this coarse on our trip. Great course!
DerekDate Played: 04/06/2010
Course was in pretty good shape, but pro in the clubhouse must have had a very bad childhood and can't get over it. He was a jerk and it seems from the other staff, he is just like that. All other staff were very nice, just beware of the mad at life pro. Still a nice course.

It was fine.
WayneDate Played: 03/27/2010

DavidDate Played: 03/19/2010
So much fun playing this course. It may not be the best manicured course, but it is fun - the way golf started out before they started tricking up golf courses for professionals to play.

The words Eagles Nest is kept in excellent condition at all times is not accurate for the day that we played the course. The tees, fairways and greens needed a lot of tlc.

course in good shape, friendly people

RichardDate Played: 09/28/2009
Course was in great shape. Thunderstorm night before play, but course took water well. Played lift and place, but for most part you could just roll ball over with club & you were good to go! A couple of tees on backside needed work, burnt out & bare. 17th was my favorite, longer par 5 with water to carry front of green, very scenic & fun to play! Take your GPS, tough to find this place.
TimothyDate Played: 09/28/2009
The grass had been cut with clumps left in the fairways and the greens were not well maintained; however, with that said it was still playable.
DebbieDate Played: 09/05/2009
Had a good time. Very relaxing and moved around the course well.
DerekDate Played: 08/03/2009
The course was just okay. It's similar to Possum Trot, Beachwood, Azalea Sands. I was expecting a little better but on the same level as those courses. When we called to make a tee time they made a point to say the course is in excellent condition. It wasn't. It was cart path only, standing water in fairways, lots of brown paths everywhere, greens were a little better. I was expecting better since they made a point to say it was excellent. They would have been better off saying nothing. There was not really a starter, it was just one bag drop guy who sorta was a starter. Nobody was there to tell the guy who hit 4 balls in a row in front of us to step off the first tee. The 3 finishing holes weren't too hard, easier than expected. The course is pretty open and forgiving. If you go left or right you just have to punch from under the pines. I wasn't blown away. I won't be going back for a while.
SamDate Played: 07/31/2009

The guy in the pro shop was rude with me, and seemed to take offense that I had booked my tee time through Myrtle Beach Golf, even though my name was on the tee time list. Many of the tees had longer grass than the rough. I won't play here again, or recommend it to anyone. ,The guy in the pro shop was rude with me, and seemed to take offense that I had booked my tee time through Myrtle Beach Golf, even though my name was on the tee time list.
