Shaftesbury Glen has recently earned an overall rating of 8.1 from reviewers at the Myrtle Beach Golf Insider, garnering praise for course condition, customer service, and overall experience. Click here to see Shaftesbury Glen’s most recent reviews.

Architect Clyde Johnston has brought element of the famed West Course at Winged Foot to Myrtle Beach, and in Shaftesbury Glen created one of the top championship courses in the area. Recognized among the “Best Places to Play” and “4 Stars” by Golf Digest, Shaftesbury Glen is a short 10-minute drive from Myrtle Beach’s famed Restaurant Row, making it a must-play course.

Shaftesbury Glen’s signature hole No. 8 – a 210-yard par 3 - features a water hazard along the left side of the hole and three sand traps that surround the green. No matter the location of the pin, golfers should aim to the center of the green and play it safe.

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.

(Would like to have known prior to play) that it was cart path only.

I know it was wet and there had been plenty of rain but, the greens were quite slow.

The course was wet so the golf was not that good.

Nice course. Good shape. Very wet. Only got in 13 holes. Rained and under water after that.
