Heather Glen Golf Course

Since it opened in 1987 as an 18-hole design, Heather Glen Golf Links has given plenty of publications reasons to sing its praises. The addition of a third nine the following year and nearly three decades later, nothing has changed. Heather Glen has been a repeat honoree for Golf World’s top-30 courses, and GolfStyles’ top-100 for the Carolinas.

Still, head professional Adam Snead called the course a bit of an “unknown.” Whether it’s Heather Glen’s location off the beaten path or something else, it should be considered a hidden gem. And with time, age has added another aspect to its original draw. 

“We’ve got a little bit of elevation changes,” Snead said. “Don’t get me wrong - it’s no West Virginia Hills. But the trees are pretty mature. You see the hole you’re on, and that’s it.”

The three nines hold their own against each other, but the original 18th hole - “The Home Hole”, as it’s labeled - is still a fantastic way to end a round. The 587-yard plays straightforward off the tee, only to force players into a second-shot decision. Lay up in front of a large pond or go for the green in two.

Too bad that this course is closing 1 December 2017. Has three different 9s all very challenging.
by Ted - 02/22/2017
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.
by Ted - 10/26/2016
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.
by Ted - 07/27/2016
Tee Boxes & Fairways are in great shape. Greens were recently aerified but are doing rather well. Staff was very accommodating except no beverage cart due to heat....
by Richard (Irmo, SC) - 07/27/2016
The staff was very helpful and allowed us to play Best Ball for the 5 of us which was not only great fun, but saved us wear and tear in the extreme heat!!
by Steve - 07/18/2016
Nice layout, but greens were not in good shape.
by Joshua - 07/13/2016
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.
by Ted - 06/17/2016
Haven't played here in about 10 years. Course is in great shape. Lots of unique holes. Lots of rain the day before but carts were allowed on the fairways. Staff was very friendly & played 18 holes in less than 4 hours.

Nice old golf course. Good condition.
by Chris (Virginia Beach, VA) - 04/30/2016
Great, scenic, relaxing course.
by David - 07/17/2015
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.
by Tim - 07/09/2015
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.

Just a little wet conditions.

by Dave (Richmond, VA) - 04/16/2014
Very good
by Bill (Canton, OH) - 03/17/2014
Always a good place to play.
by Brian - 03/07/2014
Been playing Heather Glen for over twenty years and have never been disappointed. The course was in good condition and the greens were receptive. Didn't see the ranger all day which allowed for a relaxed round of golf. Golfers of all skill levels will enjoy this course. Again, free lunch and replays thru the Glens Group make this a must on any golfers agenda.
by Ian - 02/13/2014
3 good loops of 9 holes a great place to play. On my must play list every trip to myrtle beach. A good test for any standard of golfer.

Played 9/8/13, thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff was friendly and helpful, and the course was in great shape.
by Bill - 06/17/2013
From the time we dropped off of our clubs, till the last putt was tapped in, this was a very pleasurable experience. Course was in excellent condition from the tee boxes, fairways, and greens. Played all 27 holes and found this course to be very fair and challenging. Beautiful scenery and enough elevation changes give you the opportunity to hit every club in your bag. Will definately recommend this course!!!!!
by Michael (Millville, NJ) - 06/04/2013
Great layout excellent hole designs
by Douglas (Sunnyvale, CA) - 06/03/2013

Amazing! Very green all around. Greens rolled true. Staff was excellent.
by Josh - 03/05/2013
One of the best courses I've ever played. Beautiful numbering around the entire course. A must play for anyone.
by Ed (East Bridgewater, MA) - 11/22/2012
Good layout - greens were fair.
by Bernie (Geneva, OH) - 11/18/2012
Love the design and layout of this course ... Not much one can say, as it is a golf course.
by Jay (Virginia Beach, VA) - 10/10/2012
Tough course if you miss the fairway. Starter advised to club up on most shots, it took me 4 holes to finally believe. Greens were respectable, about 9.5 stimp, and tough to read.
by Graham (Fayetteville, NC) - 10/04/2012
Very good.
by Paul (Cincinnati, OH) - 09/28/2012
We loved it.
by Paul (Franklin, MA) - 08/11/2012
Loved it.
by David (Lexington, SC) - 07/29/2012
Fun course, excellent shape. Didn't see much of the staff.
by Mark (South Park, PA) - 07/16/2012
Nice track! Their sister track across the street, Glen Dornoch, might be more scenic but the hole layout is better at Heather Glen. The course is in great shape considering the lack of rain, which made the round easier since the creek beds were all dry. With pace of play, I only wish the grill would have their specials somewhat ready to speed the turn and have the lawn crew stop cutting right next to the tee box when you are about to hit. Really don't care about the noise as much as spraying a shot. Watch the squirrels! They WILL steal your food!
by Jeff (Waynesboro, PA) - 07/09/2012
Beautiful course, well maintained. Only hitch was I booked online the night before but our tee time was still double booked. They were still able to accommodate.
by Jon and Paxton (Davis, WV) - 05/26/2012
by Ross (Manassas, VA) - 05/21/2012
All good.
by Roberta and Robert (Stuart, FL) - 05/14/2012

by Barron (Silver Spring, Md.) - 04/20/2012
by Gene - 03/20/2012
Great course. Excellent shape. Nice, no houses on course. One of my favorites at the beach.
by Kurt (Fairfield, Conn.) - 02/14/2012
The greens were not good at all.
by Mark - 01/28/2012
The staff were among the friendliest I encountered during my two week stay in MB. The course was great too.
by John and Dianne (Hollywood, S.C.) - 11/10/2011
Great layout. Among the best at the beach.
by Rick - 11/09/2011
Really nice 27-hole track. Lots of character, everyone in the group enjoyed it. Play the last nine as a scramble. Fun course. Good staff.
by Michael (Annapolis, Md.) - 11/08/2011
Best of the bunch. The only one we will replay.
by John (Clinton, Mass.) - 11/07/2011
Nice layout.
by Charlie (Dunkirk, Md.) - 10/31/2011
Would rate the course a little above average. Would like to see the staff a little more friendly.
by Graham (Liverpool, U.K.) - 10/19/2011
Great layout and condition.
by Tom (Canonsburg, Penn.) - 07/06/2011
Very difficult course, unreal pot bunkers and berms gave this course a very 'English' feel. Tremendous starter was very helpful.
by Paul (Murrells Inlet, S.C.) - 07/02/2011
Slow Bent greens. Cut long due to heat.
by Tom (Yorktown, Va.) - 06/29/2011
WOW. First time back to MB in almost 15 yrs. and couldn't have picked a better course (for the money)! Course was in fantastic shape, staff was very friendly. Not very busy either ... 4 hrs. for the round which made it even more enjoyable. Will definitely play here again!
by James (Greensboro, N.C.) - 06/28/2011
Greens were a bit beaten. Tee boxes were a bit worn.
by Peter (Fairfax Station, Va.) - 06/01/2011
Heather Glen is always a treat to play. The greens are a bit slow, especially compared to the practice green which seemed much faster. Everybody had difficulty putting, although the greens are very smooth and roll pretty true. Putts tend to skid on the type of grass there, or maybe all of us are just terrible putters. Anyway, we enjoyed the course very much and will return in the future.
by Sammy - 05/26/2011
Everything was great.
by Jeffrey (Cranston, R.I.) - 05/23/2011
A perfect day of golf. Weather, course and staff.
by MIchel (Casselman, Ontario) - 05/17/2011
Nice course to play. Not to easy, not too hard.
by Ray (Linthicum Heights, Md.) - 05/14/2011
Nice course. Seemed to be understaffed at the bag drop with only 1 person doing everything. That being said, he did a great job.
by Gary (Ridgewood, N.J.)s - 04/22/2011
Course was in the best shape it's been in for years. It was always a pretty course with a nice layout. Great value for the greens fee and the group will be back next year, for perhaps two rounds incorporating all three nines.
by James (Denver, N.C.) - 02/28/2011
Enjoyed it. Would recommend the Glen courses to everyone.
by Brian - 11/15/2010
Very nice course in very good condition.
by Stuart (Massena, N.Y.)r - 10/21/2010
One of my favorites of the area. The layout is very good. Greens were a little slow but smooth.
by Bob (Westerville, Ohio) - 10/17/2010
We very much enjoyed the three nines and the variety they exhibited.
by Brent (Myrtle Beach, S.C.) - 10/05/2010
A local golf director in Myrtle Beach. Played Heather Glen over 25 times and yesterday it was probably in the best shape I have seen it. Tee to green it was fantastic. Staff was amazing! Funny and pleasant. The reason I only gave the greens a 9 was the pace was a little slow for my taste, but that is done on purpose to give all level handicaps an even chance.
by Bob (Sewell, N.J.) - 04/19/2010
Course was in great shape. Play moved along nicely. Staff was very helpful.
by Karl (Green Bay, Wis.) - 04/05/2010
Overall condition of club and course I felt has gone down since we played last year as well as staff friendliness.
by James (Morristown, N.J.) - 04/01/2010
A good first day.
by J (Ramsey, N.J.) - 04/01/2010
I enjoyed the whole experience. It's a fair course for a variety of skill levels.
by Bernard (Howell, N.J.) - 03/12/2010
Everything was fine.
by Chris (Dedham, Mass.) - 03/02/2010
Condition of the course was not that good. Probably would have played Glen Dornich if I knew the shape of the course.
by Glenn (Monroe, Ga.) - 02/24/2010
I would return to play again.
by Patrick (Newton, Conn.) - 12/13/2009
Soaked course again; however, I could see a lack of tee sign consistency as well as no towels in the carts especially after the heavy rains.
by Jim (Markham, Ontario) - 12/04/2009
Course was very wet as result of the heavy rains.
by Sara & Mark (Birmingham, Ala.) - 11/28/2009
This is one of our favorite courses. The Spectacle golf hole is firmly entrenched in our family lore and always makes for stories around the Sea Captain's table.
by Mark - 11/27/2009
Hard to judge the course under the wet conditions. Loved the layout and really want to play in better conditions.
by Paul (Cincinnati, Ohio) - 11/03/2009
Slow Greens
by Mike (Franklin, Penn.) - 11/02/2009
Course was great but it rained.
by Brian (Beckley, W. Va.) - 10/29/2009
No complaints, love this course.
by Eric (Oceanside, N.Y.) - 10/22/2009
It had rained the day before and was very soggy. Otherwise excellent.
by Michael (Greenville, S.C.) - 10/19/2009
Was just very wet and probably unplayable.
by Cal (Northampton, Penn.) - 09/03/2009
Played lousy but enjoyed the day.
by Dennis (Waterloo, Ontario) - 08/14/2009
Interesting course. Challenging but fair. On course staff very friendly and helpful.
by Andy (Raleigh, N.C.) - 06/30/2009
Played the Red and White nines. The Blue nine needs one more week to recover from aerification. GREAT golf course. Players of all skill levels can play this course. Course was in great shape, and very enjoyable. Hard to beat for $57 at the beach!
by George (N. Myrtle Beach, S.C.) - 06/09/2009
Play Heather Glen on numerous occasions. One of my favorites. A must play.
by James (Stanley, N.C.) - 02/18/2009
Played Sept. 14, 2008: Was always on my list to play but will not ever play there again. Marshals were not on the ball. This course used to be on my list to play when staying @ Myrtle ...
by Murray (Pickerington, Ont.) - 08/05/2008
Played Nov. 20, 2007: Heather Glen was tough and a nice change from most of the others being surrounded by homes.
by Tom (Midlothian, Va.) - 06/14/2008
Played Nov. 10, 2007: It seemed Heather Glen overbooked their tee times, and we were 45 minutes late in teeing off our first day, eliminating the completion of our 18-hole round. Very disappointing with our 12-man group.
