The Heathland Course at Legends Golf and Resort recently earned an overall ranking of 8.2 from reviewers at Myrtle Beach Golf Insider, and the Tom Doak design has continued to impress over the years. Doak, a Pete Dye disciple and owner of four of the top designs in the world, created a course that has been named among America’s Best Places to Play by Zagat in 2003 and 2009, Best Public Access Courses in South Carolina by the S.C. Golf Ratings Panel in 2009, No. 12 on Golf Magazine’s Best Courses in South Carolina in 2008 and earned 4 ½ stars from Golf Digest in 2007 and 2008. Those awards chased one of its first; in 1990, it was named by Golf Magazine as one of the Top 10 New Resort Courses in the World. Heathland has a distinct feel from its neighboring courses, Legends Moorland and Legends Parkland.
Patterned off some of the British Isle’s most historic courses – Scotland’s St. Andrews, England’s Cruden Bay and Ireland’s Lahinch – Heathland is unlike any other on the Grand Strand. The par-71 course includes lush rough, deep, abundant bunkers and an unbridled breeze that that runs unobstructed nearly regardless of season. With wide-open fairways with little to no obstructions, the course takes on a wind-tunnel feel on several holes. That is evident from the start, a 414-yard par four, a hole that includes one of the widest fairways throughout the round. Other highlighted holes include No. 4, a 338-yard, par four with a dogleg left on the approach and mounds located directly in front of the green, and the par-four No. 16. On the latter, a narrow stream cuts across the fairway, affecting not only the tee shot, but the second.
The course is located just off U.S. 501, a major thoroughfare in and out of the heart of Myrtle Beach.

Heathland was a fun course even though it was cart path only due to the amount of rain. We would rank it in the middle of the Legends operated courses. Nice layout, fair course and greens were good. Staff in the grill was fun.

The course was good, but it was WAY OVERBOOKED. We had played over 5 hours and just got to hole 13 before we left. Driving out there was no break in groups so it's not just like there was a slow group or two. I understand these are popular courses, but it was so crowded we were waiting on every hole. Probably won't go back to any of the other courses there.

Very nice course and layout. Seemed to be over booked as we were 4 groups back waiting on 1st tee when starting. Also, the attendants did not get us into our carts until the last minute, even further delaying our experience and tee off.

The course was OK, but the food on breakfast was poor, potatoes were very poor.

Major problem was all are golf clubs did not arrive on time. we called ahead and were told we didn't have to reserve rentals they had plenty.
we got there and they had 3 sets left all right handed . we had a left handed golfer with us . they did not have a set of clubs for him. and could not supply another way to get them. Why? my friend had a smart phone and was able to find a service that delivered the clubs to the course in time for our round .
