On any list of Myrtle Beach’s best courses, Heritage Club is somewhere near the top. The South Strand classic is a Dan Maples design that offers a perfect combination of challenge, beauty and a good time.
Playing along the marshy waters of the Waccamaw Neck, Heritage is set on the grounds of what was once a thriving rice plantation, and the reminders of a bygone era are everywhere. The Live Oak trees draped in Spanish moss and the marsh (which was once a rice field), set the stage for a dramatic round.
Heritage, which has been ranked as high as No. 33 on Golf Digest’s list of America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses, is most known for it’s greens, which are among the area’s largest and most undulating.
On a layout full of memorable holes, the 13th might be the best. The 200-yard par three demands a carry over a fresh water lake to a green that is as daunting as the tee shot. Your group will discuss No. 13 at the 19th hole.
Heritage is the type of course you will remember long after you’ve gone home.
