Avoid this course

Have played Heather Glen many times in the past. Very good layout. This year was dramatically different. Pro shop and course personnel were nonexistent. Greens appear not to have been mowed in several days. Fairways were not much better. You could easily loose balls in untended rough. This course is obviously being neglected. We later found that owners are trying to sell the course. Homeowners and members have blocked efforts to sell to new developer. Avoid course until this is resolved. Used to be a nice tract- hopefully they can bring it back.

Wanted to play course one last time since I hear it is being sold for home development

Have played Heather Glen many times in the past years coming to Myrtle Beach for the World Amateur. The news is that Heather Glen will be sold and golf course torn up for housing development if the zoning is approved. I wanted to play her one more time while I had the chance. This course never disappoints. Some very very good holes. Lots of character, challenging but fun to play. Course was wet but considering...the conditioning was very good. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Hate to see another really great golf course go away.

Another Glen Gem

Played all three nines. It's a Links course with all the pot bunkers around the greens, swales and buried volkswagons in the fairways placed in an American style layout. Woods frame every WIDE fairway. Had a torrential downpour the night before so it was cart path only which made it a little longer to play. I found the Red and White more to my liking and skill as there weren't many 375-400 4's. All the par 3's were mid irons which suits me just fine. The fives were also manageable too. The Blue was the tougher of the 3 with quite a few loooong 4's. Course was in fantastic shape although because of the rain there was no roll in the fairways. No complaints about the greens either. I like 'em slow and to hold my iron shots and they were both. Prolly cause of the rain cause most greens down here are slick. Next up for me is Possum Trot and if it's like any of the other 3 Glens courses, I know I won't be disappointed. Huzzah!

A wonderful design in need of some TLC

Growing up I always wanted to play Heather Glen on my trips to Myrtle Beach. It was one of my favorites on the strand. So when I played the other day I was expecting similar feelings to remain, however, I found myself a bit underwhelmed. The course design and layout are still fantastic as the layout forces you to hit the right spots and the smaller greens place a premium on accuracy. Your short game will need to be sharp. The conditions are not up to par compared to my memories. Having lived in the area the past several years conditions this winter were prime for all courses to be in wonderful shape, yet Heather Glen is lagging in this area. The fairways are not barren but they are far from pure. Green wise the white 9 are slower and not as great as the blue 9. However, the greens were firm on approach shots. The value for what we paid is there and if you are someone coming from the North you will see conditions similar to what you are accustom to in April in the North. The clubhouse and the pro shop are a bit unwelcoming. The exterior could use a paint job and some grooming. The pro shop is rather empty and lacks large merchandise choices. Its almost as if they are working under the idea that the land is going to be sold in the near future. Overall, the course layout and the value are still there and worth playing if you are looking for a Scottish influenced course. We paid around 60$ I wouldn't pay more though, so keep an eye on price when booking. My hope is that this course will not disappear and with a little TLC can return to its formidable self of years past.

Nice Layout

Tee Boxes & Greens are in good shape but the Fairways are very thin & bare in some areas. Nice layout. Hopefully conditions will improve when Spring arrives. Staff is always very friendly.

Great design, conditioning could be better...

Very interesting target type course. Cool design with pot bunkers and lots of dog leg holes. The superintendent should be sent down to the minors though. Fairways were only about 25% grass and a ton of unfilled divots on all the fairways. Very poor job overseeding. Green looked great, and we're freshly cut, but they were very slow. Maybe not even a 7 on the stimp. Such a drastic change from other courses in the area which are much quicker. Had a hard time getting the ball to the hole. Even affected chipping and pitching. Had to fly the ball so much more aggressively at the hole. The greens were very receptive and anything with any amount of spin would back up, especially on the many greens which slope back to front. A couple of time I landed wedges pin high and they ripped back 15+ feet, twice off the front of the green. Not ideal. If I played it again I'd play a hard, non-spinning ball. Played a Callaway Chrome Soft this round. On the last hole, a really cool par 5 over water, I had a full gap wedge from 115y from the wiry, dormant bermuda rough back up 8 feet. That never happens to me. I'd rate the fairways a 3. The greens a 6. Tees a 7. Sand traps a 6. Design a 9+. Too bad it's not properly taken care of as it could be something very special.

A Great Day at Heather Glen

I live in the Myrtle Beach/Brunswick County area and have often golfed at Heather Glen. The conditions have always been very good but in my last three outings there the conditions have been excellent. The fairways were bright green, closely mowed and without any clippings. The greens were immaculate and true. It's simply a bargain to golf at such a superbly maintained course.
