Opened in 1986 and designed by developer Larry Young and architect Dan Maples, Heritage Club is one of the more inventive designs golfers are likely to find. With gnarly bunkers guarding enormous, boldly-contoured greens, the experience of playing Heritage Club is thrilling and unforgettable. Live oaks hold court all over the property and two holes play by 150-plus year old cemeteries, lending a sense of history to the place. Numerous prominent magazines have ranked the course among the top public golfing venues in the Southeast and Golf Digest gives it 4 ½ out of five stars on its “Places to Play” list.
The course is a par-71, with three par fives, four par threes and 11 par fours. The last of these is the most thrilling: the 506-yard 18th. A well-struck drive leaves the golfer with an age-old interesting decision: go for it or lay up? If the former, care must be taken to choose the proper yardage for one’s third shot. If the latter, the best long iron or fairway wood of the day is required to reach the green, guarded short, left and right by a lake. There is bailout area long and left but the shot is largely all-or-nothing. A well-timed, well-executed shot has decided many matches at Heritage Club.
Off the golf course, Heritage Club has spectacular facilities. The stately 12,000 square foot Colonial-style clubhouse has attractive views of the surrounding area, dotted with centuries-old live oak trees. The practice facilities are wonderful as well, with a spacious grass-tee driving range and a practice putting and chipping green close by.
Heritage Club, one of the gems of the southern Grand Strand, boasts a Golf Insider rating of 8.7, with particular praise for its clubhouse, pro shop and grill.

Conditions impacted by previous rains. Made course play longer and more difficult. Enjoyed the course but . . . . . . Staff very good.

We haven't been there for ten years since they lost the greens. It was in great shape. The bag drop guys were ok, the restaurant service was outstanding, the course too! Two problems at this place were the rule on no carts in the parking lot and the nasty guys at day's end that won't let you watch your friends come in on 18 because they want to go home. Our group was 3rd from last. We played in 4 hours. A real jerk in the cart barn.

Everything about this course is wonderful. Had a heavy amount of rain the night prior and the course was cart path only. Made for a long day. One of our golfers is recovering from a broken leg and even with the extremely wet conditions he was given a H'cap flag and allowed to proceed with due caution.

Terrific experience. Not one thing that I did not like. The booklet showing each hole was a great help. Conditions were superb and the clubhouse with a free breakfast and lunch was a nice touch. Next visit I will play more than once.

Course requires a lot of thinking off of the tee due to many doglegs. Play is pretty slow due to being part of the Legends group. It took our group longer to play vs. the courses even though we could take carts on the fairway here but had to stay on the cart path for the other courses we played due to rain.

This was the best course we played on vacation. Highly recommended.

Greens were bouncy because of recent aeration. The course is beautiful and fun to play.

Would have been nicer to have bags loaded onto carts upon arrival. Did not like that our group had to stand around waiting.
