His vision to create a Myrtle Beach area golf course that was welcoming and affordable, where golfers from all over could come for a relaxing day of golf. Thus Eagle Nest Golf club was born.

In 2001 the course underwent a complete tee to green renovation and recently had miniverde installed to its greens.

Gaining its name from its resident bald eagle that nested high in one of the property’s towering trees. The nest became an icon for this North Myrtle Beach golf course. Most American bald eagles nest near rivers or the coastline as they are fish-eating birds. A typical Eagle’s Nest is 5 feet in diameter, though because eagles often use the same nest year after year, some nests are up to 9 feet across, weighing up to two tons. Unfortunatly, our beloved nest was destroyed by Hurricane Hugo in 1989.
