Built on a rice plantation, Heritage Club's oak-lined drive leads to a plantation style clubhouse.   With large undulating greens and rolling fairways, the course challenges both the junior and senior players.  This par 71 Dan Maples-designed course will be host to the “Father and Son Team Classic” in July 2013.  Your tee shot on the 175-yard par 3 13th hole is threatened by water surrounding the green.  The lakes and marshlands create a Lowcountry beauty that is unmatched as the golfer finishes on a 470-yard par 5 and returns to the clubhouse.

Great staff and course. I would recommend this course to everybody, tees set up for all handicaps. We'll be back.

Beautiful course, challenging but fair. Slowest of the three Legends courses we played at just over 5 hours, but it was our only weekend round. Grill has better food than at their main courses, and even Guinness was on their included beverage list. Worth the drive South of MB.

Great experience all the way around.

What a wonderful place to test your game. The greens are absolutely diabolical and will certainly test your patience. This is not a cookie-cutter type of course as each hole offers its own unique challenge. Be prepared for forced carries, well guarded greens and risk/reward course management decisions. A nice bonus for us was a lunch and soft drinks are included with the greens fees. Of the 40+ courses I've played along the Grand Strand I must say the Heritage is right up there as one of my favorites.

Heritage is such a great course but ........... it is the Mother Ship of the Legends Resort and the pace of play is sooooooooo slow. My son and I played it twice. 1st time we were behind a 4-some that was double hitting ALL DAY LONG. My son and I actually hit into and over them at least 4 times and they never even raised their heads to look back at us. Even the cart lady was pissed because she had to sit idle waiting on them to finish shots. 2nd time .... we had a 12:44 tee time. Got into a cart at 2:10. The course overbooked like an airline, only worse. Front 9 took 3 hours 22 minutes. Same nonsense, double hitting, no Ranger pressing groups to move along. We left the course, drove the cart to the truck and left it there. It is really sad thought that management let's such a great course be looked at with such low ratings. Dollars definitely have the priority over the golf experience at Heritage. Four of my greatest friends on earth are coming to our place at Pawleys Island in Sept 2016, just to play golf. Not a chance I will try to get us on at Heritage because of these experiences.

One of our favorite course in the south area of MB. The pace was really too slow...may be it was over booked. The course was however in great condition as always. The staff was as usual nice and warm. The course was a bit wet so it was car path...a good way to keep it in good condition.

Absolutely beautiful! Great course, will definitely play again! A must play!

Nothing but good golf on a great course. ALL the greens were in good shape and the staff was very helpful. When you get breakfast, lunch, and golf for $50 it's the best deal in Myrtle area.

Been playing Heritage since 1989, favorite course. Was not made aware of food/beverage coupons until we checked in at pro shop.

Was a beautiful course. Was unfortunately cart path only, however they did accommodate my father who is handicap with a flag. Everyone was very helpful and extremely nice. Course in excellent condition. Would definitely play again.

Excellent course. However, was not aware breakfast and lunch was included until we arrived to play.

Staff was great.

Wonderful course, no two holes the same, I could play it everyday. The staff across the board was awesome, polite, and went out of their way to make our day extremely enjoyable. We were lucky to play with two members who helped us work our way around the course and negotiate the large green complexes. We'll be back!

Very nice course but last holes really unplayable so wet, although we toughed out a severe downpour on the last hole!

Classy course, beautiful layout, nice staff. Holds up very well to any course in Myrtle Beach area.

We played there on a cold day but the course is a favorite. The greens are a little furry right now but quite puttable. On the first tee, we watched two eagles land in the nest near the tee. Quite pretty. This course has a some very tough golf holes and a couple that are easy. Love this course and the people that run it are great. Breakfast, Lunch and golf very not much money. I'll return.

I have played this course a few times in previous years. It is one of my favorites. Only bad thing is we had a late tee time because someone at the course made an error and allowed an extra group of ten people out which pushed our tee time from 12:00 to 1:00 pm just finished before dark and did not enjoy the second nine because of rushing to finish before dark. Love this golf course.

Awesome course and facility. Definitely a must play. The only notable oddity is the parking and range are accessible by livery cart. Even exiting the 18th you are not allowed to drive to your vehicle. it really seems like they are trying to force tips out of players. Other than that a great course.

Don

Excellent.

Edward

Liked the layout and Southern charm.

Ken

Have played every year. Continues to be a favorite. The prior courses played this year (River Club and Litchfield CC) had monuments at the tees and GPS on the carts. Although not absolutely necessary, would have been helpful.

Timothy

Excellent.

Great hole design.

Tim

10/14/2014

The gators on the 18th hole made this my favorite course of the week. The old plantation feel of the course was the other reason I liked it. We are not highly skilled golfers so enjoying the scenery is a bonus.

Jim

10/14/2014

Excellent.

Very nice course, slow play they stack them in to tight cant get a replay dont think we will play there next year.

Larry

(Would like to have known prior to play) if they are seeding, working on course that would require walking the course.

Howard

Course conditions were sloppy, tremendous rain and standing water in fairways.

Geraldine

Very good.

Don

We haven't been there for ten years since they lost the greens. It was in great shape. The bag drop guys were ok, the restaurant service was outstanding, the course too! Two problems at this place were the rule on no carts in the parking lot and the nasty guys at day's end that won't let you watch your friends come in on 18 because they want to go home. Our group was 3rd from last. We played in 4 hours. A real jerk in the cart barn.

Paul

09/24/2014

Excellent.

Rusty

Everything about this course is wonderful. Had a heavy amount of rain the night prior and the course was cart path only. Made for a long day. One of our golfers is recovering from a broken leg and even with the extremely wet conditions he was given a H'cap flag and allowed to proceed with due caution. GREAT HOSPITALITY!!

This was the best course we played on vacation. Highly recommended.

Greens were bouncy because of recent aeration. The course is beautiful and fun to play.

Would have been nicer to have bags loaded onto carts upon arrival. Did not like that our group had to stand around waiting.

Phillip

This is one of my favorite courses in area along with Caledonia which I played a couple of weeks earlier. They had just worked on the greens earlier in the week and they needed another week to recover. However, still a beautiful course that played great! Scenic views and a good far test of golf for all players!

Tommy

Plug the greens and didnt tell us ... at bag drop the guys were jerks.
