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.
Great layout. Fun course. We were a 4some with two women. Good course for them...not many forced carries.
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.
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.
Greens were in rough shape.
Greens were in very poor condition.
The back nine was as advertised.
Very good condition, very friendly staff.
Club head cleaners on carts and coolers for drinks.
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!
Nice, challenging but fair course. Great condition for Jan. Thick overseed and smooth fast greens.
Variety of hole layouts.
The play was slow due to cart path only. The last 3 holes were as advertised very tough.
Good experience all around.
Ladies tees gave us a great break most of the time. Fairways were well groomed and great.
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.
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.
It was a nice course be mostly like I have around were I live. It was a fun course,
Very busy. Over all very nice.
Enjoy the lay out.
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.
Very friendly staff, great feel to the course.
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
I have played this course several times and I enjoyed it. It is a good challenge for golfers of all skill levels.
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.
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
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.
The course provides a challenge for all ranges of proficiency and is a good track for the money. Staff friendly and professional.
For the price, the course was in good shape. Staff was efficient. I enjoyed the experience.
Great course. Beautiful landscapes. no rain covers on back of carts was really the lone downfall. Is go back.
All is well
Usually dry this time of year and quite playable.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Much better than when we played it in '02.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. Up north, maybe. Down here in Golf Capital, U.S.A., we can’t be bothered with such environmental concerns. In South Carolina’s Grand Strand - a section of 60-plus miles of beaches and 90 or so golf courses - the links are still welcoming despite the season. - Read More
