Spring is right around the corner! And that can only mean one thing: it’s time to start planning your next Grand Strand Golf Getaway.
With over 100 championship golf courses, each one engineered by some of the top designers and geared to every playing level, the Grand Strand is where every golfer wants to be when the weather turns warm. With so many golf courses, it might be challenging to decide just where you and your friends might want to play first. Never fear, the Myrtle Beach Golf Authority is here to make your decision a little easier with in-depth looks at a few of Myrtle Beach’s premier courses.
This week we will be taking an in-depth look at Eagle Nest Golf Course.
Nestled in the charming waterfront fishing village of Little River, SC, this beautiful 250-acre course is equal parts wildlife preserve and golf course. With a course rating of 78.1 and a slope rating of 143, this par-72, 8,100 yards-yard behemoth is a favorite among professional and amateur golfers alike.
Designed in 1971 by renowned architect Gene Hamm, Eagle Nest’s stunning 18-hole layout incorporates a variety of diverse terrain and native vegetation to create a one-of-a-kind golf experience that’s equal part challenge and enjoyability. Dense maritime forest frame placid lakes and ponds sprinkled around the course. A virtual bird aviary blankets the skies and treetops with natural beauty and vibrant color.
However, don’t let the pretty landscape fool you: this golf course can be tricky! Eagle Nest is home to the “3 toughest finishing holes on the Grand Strand,” with 16, 17, and 18. These 3 holes require superior shot selection and placement but are fair for golfers of all skill levels.
Eagle Nest has undergone several facelifts throughout its long and illustrious history to stay up to date with the newest courses. With their 2019 addition of the “Perch Tees,” Eagle Nest Golf Course is the longest golf course in South Carolina.
Trust us; whether this is your first trip or hundredth, Eagle Nest will have you returning again and again.
