A Challenge After a Full Day of Rain

This course has wide fairways, strategically placed bunkers throughout, and nice readable greens...typically. However, the day and night before, Myrtle Beach had almost 24 hours of rain. It was cart path only (which was expected), but casual water all over...and no place to take relief. You just had to expect waterworks whenever you hit a shot regardless of the lie. It made this moderately-challenging course a little more challenging just due to weather conditions. I have played this course several times and really like the layout.

A true gem

Probably the best course we played all week. Course was beautiful. Greens awesome. Great layout. Not sure what we paid as it was part of a package but I highly recommend. From bag guys to starter to club house staff everyone was very accommodating. Only complaint was $5 for a beer. If your ever in the area I recommended you play this course. We will be back.

Love this place

Always enjoy getting to make the trip to Shaftsbury. The recent additions (within the last couple years) of the waste bunkers drastically improved course conditions by allowing water to drain more effectively, and I think they help the course play a little easier than before. Take extra club if needed as all the greens are elevated. Tees, fairways and greens all usually in really good shape, although the greens will be slow during summer months, but the bent grass during peak times cannot be beat. Par 3s have some teeth, and 9 and 18 make fun finishing holes. Save time for lunch, the egg salad is hard to beat.

Short game?

All greens are elevated. There is very little opportunity to execute a chip shot or pitch shot less than 40 yards in length. Miss the greens just off the edge and you're in a trap.

Lousy design.

Great Fairways

This is one of my favorites in the Strand. Fairways extremely nice and holds drives that hit the fairway. Pace of play a little slow, but staff and course were exemplary. Always look forward to playing this beauty. A little inland and off the Strand path, but well worth the trip.

Always Enjoy this Course

this course seems to always be in good shape and find ways to fairly challenge you. Other reviewers commented on the elevated greens needing an extra club...they are correct.

Not Much PIzazzz

Course is in very good shape Tee to Green. Nice layout but nothing that jumps out & wows you. Strong Par 3's even though they are all about the same yardage. Hole's #9 & 18 are strong finishing holes. Again nice course but no Pizazzz! With that I would recommend playing here.

Great course in great condition, despite cold, rainy weather.

Shaftesbury is a great course. Almost all of the greens are elevated so it plays longert than stated yardage.

Love the course with lots of waste bunkers. Great design. Playable for all if pick the right tee. Greens are bent grass and very quick. 10.5 I'd say. A bit faster than TPC Myrtle Beach, but not quite as perfect. Still rolled nicely. You do see a large amount of old cups. More than usual. They must change hole positions a ton. They putt great though. I'd give the greens a 9 overall. Fairways a 9. Sand traps were a mixed bag, Id rate an 8, some machine raked and some with footprints. Deeper, fluffier sand than other places - use sand wedge with lots of bounce here. Overall a joy to play. Highly recommend.

Great Value

This course is long. The waste bunkers run the course. Elevated Greens are the norm. Fairways were fine. Greens were good. A rainy summer softened greens so they have taken incoming abuse. For the price of a municipal you get a Challenger. If you drive 250 you still have a fairway wood. You feel like you are on a much pricier course. The slope reads 130. This is the length. That is the downside and at the same time the challenge. You find yourself saying "I am not gettiung paid for this, I wish I was a senior". Cart Paths are perfect and edged. That tells you a lot about conditions.
