Description

About Heather Glen

Heather Glen offers the links-style golf of the Scottish Highlands in the heart of the Carolina Lowcountry. Golf Digest chose Heather Glen as l987's No. 1 new public course, and names it again and again as among the country's best. The course's 27 holes are even lovelier in maturity, its setting is truly spectacular, and the 19th Century clubhouse echoes its Scottish tradition. This 400-acre historic-site is embraced by ancient oaks and pines, an awesome blend of designers Willard Byrd's and Clyde Johnston's talents.


Boasting a rating of 4.5 stars, Heather Glen has become one of the Myrtle Beach area favorites. In fact, Heather Glen has been the recipient of many accolades such as “Top 50 Public Courses in America", "Top 5 in South Carolina" and Golf Digest's "Places to Play.” But the rewards don’t come from nothing; players that flock to this Little River course admire it for its fairways lined with beautiful trees, and the surrounding of marshes and wetlands.


Of course, since Heather Glen plays homage to Scotland, the layout of the course features characteristics that are reminiscent to traditional Scottish elements such as numerous waste pot bunkers and natural waste areas. But, perhaps the Heather Glen clubhouse is the most notable piece of this course that echoes all things Scottish.


Whether you are driven to Heather Glen as a golfer who enjoys traditional links-style courses, or if you just want to experience the beauty of a natural South Carolina setting, then be sure to make a tee time at Heather Glen next time you are in town.

"Course in very good shape. Unfortunately the "white" course was closed, but the blue (in particular) & the red were both very good. Liked the terrain changes, especially the elevated and bunkered green placements. #8 Blue was a real kick with 2 landing areas!"

"Disappointed with the track. Red nine was terrible condition with thin greens and wet fairways with no noitce at time of booking that it was cart paths only. White nine much better and was interesting. Compared to other courses and rates this is lower tier of value."

"This was the second time I have played the course. The first was over 10 years ago. Course was in fantastic condition and the greens were perfect and fast, especially for the winter. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I've played over 60 courses in Myrtle Beach area and this is a top 10 for me."
