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.

"Tee Boxes & Greens are in good shape but the fairways were very thin & bare in some areas. Overall conditions were below average which is unusual for this course. Hopefully with spring approaching the course will improve. Staff is always very friendly here."

"Overall condition of course was good but could have used some more clean up on the fairways & greens. Lots of small debris everywhere. Pace of play was very slow 4hrs 45mins. Starter did apologize for pace of play & tried to move our foursome to another nine after we mad the turn but it was backed up on all 3 nines. I appreciate the concern from the starter but I think there should be rangers on the course doing their job & keeping pace of play reasonable. I would recommend playing here but be prepared for a slow round during the busy seasons."

"I love this course. The greens were a little beat-up with ball marks, but that's more on players than the course management. There are a bunch of interesting holes on this course and its a blast to play."

"The golf course is in great shape. Greens were excellent, staff was friendly, pace of play was good also. Ordered the fried bologna for lunch, which was really good. They also gave us, a great recommendation, for dinner, Clarks. Tony Haring, from Glens vacations, is excellent to deal with. The golf course is visually nice to look at. Holes 2 and 3 on the red course are some of my favorites. The facility, is 27 holes, all of them are a joy to play. The starters, keep everything running smoothly."

"Love this place but was a little disappointed with the greens this time around. The Red Course's greens were OK (not great) and the Blue were a mess. Everything else was excellent. I think the White was closed the day our group played it."

"We played on July 1st and the greens were really bad. They had told us they had punched the greens but one nine we played hadn't been punched and they were horrible. The second nine we played the greens had been punched and they were a lot better than the other nine. The tee boxes and fairways were great."
