Eagle Nest provides all the beauty you would expect at a South Carolina resort course. Gently rolling terrain. Tall pines lining the fairways. Cypress trees growing in ponds; willow trees gracing their banks. But 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. By then you ought to be warmed up. 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 finale, the three toughest finishing holes on the Grand Strand. Individually, they're known by locals as Tough, Almost As Tough, and Lord Help Me Over The Water.
