Hi all!

Another extremely great day for golf in Myrtle Beach on this Wednesday, April 24, 2019! The sun was still shining and the temperature reached a beautiful 27 degrees Celsius.

And for the first time ever, we paid a visit to the Eagle Nest Course in Little River, just a couple of kilometers from the border between North Carolina and South Carolina.

From the outset, we want to admit it: with all that we had already read and heard in the past, our expectations were, so to speak, modest. However, after having played this course, we can confirm that these famous expectations have been largely exceeded.

In fact, everything began on our arrival, when we were superbly welcomed by the staff, both at the bag drop and inside the club house. Courteous people, happy to see us and to share with us what you need to know about this golf course.

Speaking of that golf course, Eagle Nest was in excellent condition, from tees to greens. The only downside would be with those greens, because sand was spread on all of them a few days ago, making them a little bit slower than what we had the day before at Aberdeen. Speaking of sand, the sand traps (we visited some of them) were in immaculate condition, nothing less.

Eagle Nest is a course that surrounded by very tall pines but, rest assured, the alleys are very wide and even if you go a little too much left or right, you will be able to recover and register good scores. We would even dare to pretend that by playing this course, you should be able to significantly increase your level of confidence while having fun. And as a bonus, the design of the course is attractive.

However, be prepared for the last three holes, which are certainly the fame of Eagle Nest. From the white tees, we are talking about a 402-yard par 4 with a difficult green entry (water on the left and sand traps on the right), followed by a long par 5 of 540 yards where again, a lake on the left side could ruin your hole if your second shot is a bit short and finally, a par 3 of 154 yards that will demand you to cross a lake ... and a sand trap at the entrance of the green.

All in all, Eagle Nest is a course that we definitely recommend to any type of golfer. Again (as we mentioned about Aberdeen in our yesterday’s report), it's not a high-end golf course, but if you want to integrate it into an eventual package, you really won’t be disappointed. Also, consider seriously making Eagle Nest the first course to play when planning your next Myrtle Beach golf vacation. As was previously suggested, it will be very good for your "mental toughness"!

P. S .: For Ladies ... Eagle Nest, at 4559 yards, is an excessively good course for you ... maybe even a little bit too good! 😉

I agree totally with your appreciation of this course. I have played this golf course two times in April. Thanks Denis.

Eagles Nest is always worth a play at least once, you take on it is spot on.

The new "Perch Tees" are just a marketing tool. I doubt that i will play them in the future. ?

I agree that the Perch tees are for marketing.   
 
Gary meant did they cut the trees that were in the way of the perch tees?

I played there on the 13th and they were still working on them. Overheard a few in the clubhouse talking about them and assume one was an owner?  who wanted it done right and not use until it is. by the way courses was in great condition

You should. Not the same course than 4-5 years ago. A lot of improvements there. But the "perch tees" are not a good idea.

Art, was meaning that and did they move the putting green so it was not in play from the first tee.  Not sure how much the owner spent on making these tees, but the money could have gone into the course to improve what they have again just my opinion.
