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.

Wonderful course, no two holes the same, I could play it everyday. The staff across the board was awesome, polite, and went out of their way to make our day extremely enjoyable. We were lucky to play with two members who helped us work our way around the course and negotiate the large green complexes. We'll be back!

Very nice course but last holes really unplayable so wet, although we toughed out a severe downpour on the last hole!

We played there on a cold day but the course is a favorite. The greens are a little furry right now but quite puttable. On the first tee, we watched two eagles land in the nest near the tee. Quite pretty. This course has a some very tough golf holes and a couple that are easy. Love this course and the people that run it are great. Breakfast, Lunch and golf very not much money. I'll return.

I have played this course a few times in previous years. It is one of my favorites. Only bad thing is we had a late tee time because someone at the course made an error and allowed an extra group of ten people out which pushed our tee time from 12:00 to 1:00 pm just finished before dark and did not enjoy the second nine because of rushing to finish before dark. Love this golf course.

Some like it hot, some like it upscale, some seek out less expensive months, some like it for at least 36 holes a day, some prefer to set aside ample pool and beach time.
