Eagle Nest Golf Club
Eagle Nest Golf Club was designed around natural cypress swamps and pine forests. It has twenty-two bodies of water, some most of which are for aesthetics only. Don’t be overly concerned as the course is still playable for all levels of golfers.
This course has been one of the most popular courses in the North Myrtle beach area for more than 40 years and counting. The signature hole is #18, a 185-yard, par 3 from the tips, requiring a tee shot over a small pond to an oblong small green.
The real beauty lies in the way 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 3 hole finale.
