Course Spotlight: Eagle Nest Golf Club

Year-round green conditions and a slew of recent upgrades are what you’ll find in abundance for your next round at Eagle Nest Golf Club.

This Gene Hamm design had already made a big splash a few years back by adding two new sets of tees, the farthest of which now make Eagle Nest the longest golf course in South Carolina at 8,000 yards when played from the new “Perch” tees. That’s not to say, though, that you don’t have plenty of distance options, which Eagle Nest offers with sets of tees that scale down as low as 3,800 – giving golfers of all skill levels a chance to enjoy an eminently player-friendly track.

As for the recent upgrades, they include the installation of new cart paths for a much smoother ride around this scenic property, and bunker renovations throughout the design that integrate dramatic new grass elements to their greenside facings.

Hamm eases you into your playing experience at Eagle Nest, and progressively ramps up the challenge throughout your journey. By the time you hit No. 16, you’re ready to take on what many consider to be the Grand Strand’s toughest three-hole stretch. Eagle Nest’s most difficult hole at the par-4 16th makes you navigate a large swamp on your approach; No. 17 is a monster par 5 that stretches more than 600 yards from the tips; and the 18th hole is a memorable par 3 with a forced carry over water to a green surrounded by bunkers on all sides.

Located conveniently near Highway 17 in Little River, Eagle Nest is an ideal option for including in a North Strand-themed golf getaway. It’s available in a range of package options, including one of our PGA specials that include a $100 gift card for each player in your group. Check it out!
