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.

Playing the Legends is playing corporate golf. Everything designed to push through more people than the courses can handle. 5+ hour round. Takes away from what could be a good experience.

Extended waiting period until tee time. Course is way, way too jammed with people. Tee times space needs to be increased.
