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.

Staff was friendly and attentive in all areas. Course features lots of wide, green fairways, with the primary challenge coming from some very impressive sand traps and bunkers on virtually every hole. Big, gaping sand monsters protect most greens. The bentgrass greens were in fine shape and rolled very true. This is one of the more moderately easy courses in the area, but it is kept in very playable condition and offered at a reasonable rate. The biggest negative for my threesome today was that one of the course employees drove a single over in a cart to "ask" us on the first tee if the single could join our group. We were not interested in cramping the style of our annual trip to the Grand Strand, but were we going to say "no" in front of the single? We had a good time anyway, but that was the only example of pretty poor judgement by the generally friendly and helpful staff.

Had a 7:48 tee time for me and my son (11) on a 48 hour rate (49 bucks jr free). Was worried cause in the morning from 2 am till when we got to course it was windy and raining like crazy. I didn't think we would get out at all and sky looked bad then the rain stopped. We got out early only 1 group in front of us and 2 or 3 groups behind us so pace was perfect and we didn't push or get pushed. Due to rain bunkers were ground under repair as they had all washed out but not surprised due to rain. Greens were very nice and big. We enloyed this course and will be back. I would play it again.

The course was open with wide fairways. The challenging part was the bunkers. They were house swallowing bunkers.

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.

Nice course. Will book 2 days ahead in order to take advantage of half the price we paid for it.

Course style is cut through trees and pines. Most fairways are wide, but it is strange that the tightest tree lined hole is ##1. Position off the tee is useful, to avoid having to approach the greens over a bunker. There is little water and no holes are on the Waccamaw river as ads may imply to you. The theme for the course is to be easier than the other Glens courses and to have "Tillinghast" style greens/bunkers. The greens are elevated and the bunkers are big and deep with grass fingers. On most holes the bunkers are on 1 side of the green with the bunkers being more plentiful on the back 9. The bent greens were good, but not as smooth as you could find them in the coming months through spring. Tees, Fairways, Bunkers were good. We played White tees at 6445 yards, which is longer than most white tees in MB. The main challenge is the elevated greens with bunker protection. I had not played here in 7 years and felt that the sand was a darker color, thicker grained and also firmer than in the past. Shaftsbury is not a very memorable design, but it is well worth playing for the conditions and replay availability. I rank it right behind the top 30 or so courses. They are building a indoor lesson building on the range, with 2 indoor hitting bays.
