Tee It Up Grand Strand host Shan Coughlin gets the Eagle Nest Golf Club January Update from Cathy Ziegler, golf travel specialist with the Myrtle Beach Golf Authority, a North Myrtle Beach based company providing a variety of lodging and golf options for travelers to the area. Cathy has worked in this area and with golf travel for a good while and knows how to put together something that works for the group taking their wants, needs and budget into account. What many do not realize is that travel time, available day light hours and round length of time at the different courses can really impact a group’s schedule.
Eagle Nest Golf Course is located in the fishing village of Little River South Carolina just north of North Myrtle Beach on the North Carolina border. As one of the oldest courses on the Grand Strand, golfers play among established tree lined fairways as the first fifteen holes set them up for the last three, considered the best finishing holes on the Grand Strand by many.
Built by the late Senator Dick Elliott, this course meanders through the low country terrain and offers some very unique scenery. Having their own on-site greenhouse, this course is known for it’s immaculate landscaping and continually blooming flowers. In addition to their cultivated scenery, there are Carolina bays filled with standing cypress trees that you do not get to see on courses developed after regulatory restrictions were adopted that prevented development in areas with established wetlands.
Eagle Nest is also a part of East Coast Golf Management’s Platinum Golf Membership which provides members with exclusive benefits including reduced greens fees at 22 different courses, member only events once per month, discounts to participating restaurants and accommodations, a play 4 and get the 5th for free program, as well as a $100 gift card that can be used at any of the golf courses.
