Shaftesbury Glen Golf and Fish Club

The Myrtle Beach Area Golf Course Owners Association 2009 Course of the Year has also been honored by Golf World and Golf Digest in the past decade. Not all that long ago, Shaftesbury Glen Golf and Fish Club was also nominated as one of Golf Digest’s Best New Public Courses.

And while it hasn’t even been open for two decades, Shaftesbury is staying the course with what starting turning heads to begin with. It’s still using the A-1 Bentgrass greens - something only a handful of area courses offer - and it has maintained its reputation for supremely manicured turf.

What’s more, Shaftesbury Glen also won’t destroy the common golfer. Bunkers galore are neutralized in spots by forgiving landing areas to open each hole.

“The generous fairways are a big thing our clients like,” head professional Ryan McCarty said. “It seems like some courses have made theirs harder. I’m not saying ours is an easy course. But most courses, people struggle off the tee.”

The difficulty in other spots is apparent on No. 18. The par 4 plays straight from start to finish. Granted, five bunkers protecting the oversized green erase the cushion you started with in a hurry.

Played an afternoon round (12:30pm on a thursday) for $80. Course was off the beaten path up in Conway off rte 22. Course was empty. We were literally the only ones out there for the first 7-8 holes before a 2-some caught us. really big putting/chipping green and a fairly good size grass tee driving range. Layout was decent. tree lined but generous fairways for the high handicapper (like myself). Conditions were good except for the fact that prior to us arriving in MB for this golf trip they had few inches of rain so it was cart path only for entire 18. some wet areas but fairways were green and the greens rolled nice. good mid-range, mid- price option. about a 30 minute drive from by-pass 17 if staying in MB area. girl working the bar at the turn struggled a little bit as it took us 12 min to order couple drinks and a hot dog(each) for the four of us. my guess is based on location this is not a course that gets a lot of vacationers play. big local course.

nice layout
by Ted - 03/08/2017
Course is in very good shape from Tee to Green. Nice layout but nothing that jumps out or wows you. The par 3's are strong even though they are all about the same yardage. Hole's #9 & 18 are strong finishing holes. Course was busy but pace of play was ok. Again nice course just don't expect any pizazzz.... FYI: Greens were very fast!

I always like to play this course because of the layout but per previous comments the greens are in poor condition.
by John D - 07/26/2016
It had not rain for a few days and temperatures reached in the upper 90's but they never told me that it was cart path only when I booked a tee time (I got Shaftesburied again...). All the so call renovation they made must have not included drainage! Care to play this course please make certain that you can ride the fairways or it will be a wet day.
by Ted - 06/04/2016
First time playing since renovations. Course is in good shape. Some thin areas on Tee Boxes & Fairways but nothing that can't be overlooked. Greens were perfect with lot's of different holes. Now the bad part: Pace of play was horrible. 4 foursomes in front of us that more into partying than golfing. Ranger came out on 6th hole & told us he was going to get them to speed up. Next 2 holes pace of play was fine but then slowed down to a crawl again. Did not see ranger again all day. Don't like being lied too!!!! . Funny, At the starter & bag drop area all the staff kept bragging on was how they keep up pace of play... Again Lip Service......

The course was open with wide fairways. The challenging part was the bunkers. They were house swallowing bunkers.
by Jon - 07/05/2015
Played this course on 7-2. Course was in great shape even though the greens had been punched a couple of weeks ago. There was hardly anyone playing which was surprising. My foursome had a 8:28 tee time and played all 18 holes with only one individual coming through. Had nobody ahead of us or behind us all day. Great day of golf.

Every green looks the next.The sand traps that protect the greens are massive with the same look.Play sister course Heather Glen instead of here.
by Pablo - 12/17/2013
Great greens, large hitting areas, perfect condition
by Stephen (Garner, NC) - 09/16/2013
Paid more that we thought we were going to pay. Was worth our original estimate. Was not worth what we thought was a premium price. Our original estimate was $18 less.
by Theresa (Georgetown, ON) - 09/21/2012
A beautiful course which would have been a pleasure on any other day. This day it was quite waterlogged due to heavy rains and carts were not permitted on the fairways. It would be nice if the clubhouse had more variety in the menu. I.e. salads.
by Randy - 07/16/2012
Great course! We hadn't played this course in several years and decided to play it. I'm glad we did. Although it was cart path only, the round was still very enjoyable. The greens were in excellent shape. The fairways were longer than usual but this was due to having rain for the last 4 days. I highly recommend this course to anyone.
by Bob (Guilford, Conn.) - 04/12/2012
Great condition, fair price.
by Thomas (Morehead City, N.C.) - 02/21/2012
Overall course in very good condition, all were helpful, started on time, wasn't really rushed even with 2 juniors in party, great experience.
by Timothy - 01/29/2012
We played 1/29/12. The staff was nice and the course was okay. The greens were a little beat up from play but acceptable. It's a long course but I enjoyed the challenge.
by Bob - 10/31/2011
Course was near perfect. The only problem was that players were not fixing their ball marks on the greens.
by Glyn - 09/27/2011
Wonderful course, pristine condition, great staff, best I have played in Myrtle Beach.
by Andy - 07/18/2011
Played Saturday, July 16th and really enjoyed the course. Excellent condition tee to green and very generous fairways. Great value and will definitely play again.
by D. (Waynesboro, Va.) - 07/02/2011
Played Shaftesbury today and our group was extremely pleased with the layout and its conditions. Excellent value, maybe the best value on the Strand. Very generous and carpet-like fairways leading to very large, mostly flat and very true greens sitting highly elevated and protected with huge & deep traps. Avoid the traps! Rt. 22 makes it easy to get to from North Myrtle. We definitely will be returning and recommending to friends.
by Dan (Pleasantville, N.J.) - 05/05/2011
I thought the golf course was in excellent shape but thought the layout was a little bland.
by Rich (Toms River, N.J.) - 10/09/2010
You are charging $97!! I know it is in season, but haven't you heard we are in a money crunch? The course is slightly above average, but not in the top 20 @ the Beach. Also, the course is in the middle of nowhere. The trick is getting golfers to the course; good luck with this approach.
by Chris (Jefferson Twp., Penn.) - 04/11/2010
Great course, great conditions, great greens, great fairways and the price was sweet. Highly recommend to any level golfer.
by Robert (Forest Hill, Md.) - 03/14/2010
The course had a very nice layout. Unfortunately, like many other recent visitors to the area, we played the course the day after rain and it was very wet. The greens were in great shape since they all were well above the level of the approach shots, but the fairways were soaked and it was cart path only. You better like sand because these greens are well guarded with a lot of ball-eating bunkers!
by Dave (Southbury, Conn.) - 02/17/2010
Shafesbury was a disappointment. It was very, very wet and played very long. The layout was the most disappointing - most of the holes were straight wide fairways with the only challenge coming at the greens. The greens were all elevated and flashed with bunkers. The greens were very large and rolled true. Since nothing bounced, many holes required a second shot of over 200 yards. If the ball landed on the upslope short of the green, it would not bounce up. Outside of the wetness, course conditions were very good - tees, bunkers and greens.
by Murray (Chester, Va.) - 12/15/2009
Fun course.
by Richard - 10/28/2009
Love this course. Always in great shape.
