Great marketing or just crazy?

 

The South Carolina golf mecca now features a track that can play a whopping 8,100 yards (or more!), thanks to a new set of elevated back tees (dubbed "perch tees") at Eagle Nest Golf Club in the Myrtle's Little River district. It's the first 8,000-yard course along the Grand Strand.

 

From the report: "The Grand Strand needs this, and Eagle Nest is a good place for it," said Rick Elliott, who owns the course along with his mother, Anne. "It has created an opportunity for the professional golfer to play there, and I think we need that. At some point there's no reason we can't have a tournament in this area.

 

  • The course's par-3s will measure 283, 199, 248 and 266, which is the course's closing hole over water to an elevated green, for a total of 996 and average of 249 yards. 
  • The course will begin with a 645-yard par-5 and the other par-5 yardages are 573, 683 and 603 for a total of 2,504 yards and average of 626 yards. 
  • Seven par-4s will measure more than 460 yards, capping out at the 506-yard second hole, which is one of two par-4s exceeding 500 yards. 

 

 

According to USGA web site the Slope rating of current black tees at 7900 yds = 7223 m is 143 and Scr rating is 78.1.

 

So I would be off 10 and Iron mick off 32.

 

so a 90 OTS = 28 points would give me a played to 9.5.

Yes couldn't reach most par 3's as they are around 175m

The current 18th hole is 185 y over water from Blue

 

the new one  from the super black tee will be 266 y = 243m all carry.

 

given the averge ISG golfer hits it 250m that shouldnt be a problem for some.

Pffft. 243m is only a 4 wood.

You need to hit the gym, Geoff.
