Along the far South End of the Grand Strand sits one of the Myrtle Beach area’s premium layouts: the Dan Maples-designed Heritage Club, rich in Lowcountry splendor. Join us on a fascinating video tour of this renowned facility, and check out the hole-by-hole photo gallery that appears below.
A reputation is most often well deserved. And the Heritage Club has earned the reputation as a perennial must-play course in Myrtle Beach for so many reasons.
Time carries stature throughout Heritage Club with magnificent, century-old oaks surrounding the colonial, plantation-style clubhouse. Carved through old growth pines and oaks on the former Midway/True Blue plantation, the challenging par 71 layout requires creativity and shotmaking to successfully navigate this Dan Maples design.
With water or marsh in play on more than six holes, players will find a variety of shots are necessary to avoid deep greenside bunkers that protect these Champion Bermuda greens. The split fairway, par-5 2nd Hole provides a unique choice for players to choose their layup while steering clear of the water hazard that fronts the green.
The front nine meanders towards the Waccamaw River with passerby boats and long views of this former plantation. Equally impressive to its design are the conditions found everyday at Heritage Club. From firm and fast during the summer to lush and receptive with the winter overseed, players will always find a course manicured to the highest standards every day, for every round.
Unmistakable at Heritage is the large lake in play on four holes on the back nine. The par-3 13th Hole presents an intimidating tee shot with water surrounding the green and plenty of alligators lurking at the surface. Another tough tee shot follows at the 14th, with water down the left. And a fantastic finishing hole, the dogleg left 18th, is a par five with mystical oak trees framing the entire length of the hole with an expansive island green. Yes, a birdie here at the last most definitely deserves a tip of the cap.
Heritage Club is undoubtedly one of the finest courses to play here on the Grand Strand. Come experience the Lowcountry charm this classic design affords, just a short drive south of Myrtle Beach in Pawleys Island, South Carolina!
