Heritage Club Golf Course
Heritage Club, one of the five courses in the Legends Group, is located in Pawleys Island, South Carolina. This course has received a number of distinctions from Golf Digest such as “Top 50 Golf Courses in Myrtle Beach” in 2007, “Best Public Courses in South Carolina” in 2008, “Best in State” in 2005, 2007, and 2009. The Heritage Club ranked in “America's 100 Greatest Public Courses” by Golf Digest in the years 2005, 2007, and 2009. It was also given 4 ½ stars by Golf Digest’s “Places to Play.”
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 has been host to the “Father and Son Team Classic”. 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.

I was pleasantly surprised with the condition of the greens. In my opinion during my 3 week stay in the Myrtle Beach area, May and June 2020, Tidewater and Heritage have the best conditioned greens. Unfortunately, the pace of play at Heritage was terrible. The round took nearly 5 hours to complete.
BobDate Played: 02/21/2020
Great layout but disappointed with staff. There was a weather delay. We weren’t informed until we arrived. Told it would be 20-30 minutes. It ended up being a 1:10 delay. We were only able to complete 10 holes. That took an excruciating 3 hours. There was a group of 4 foursomes in front of us that were drunk, screwing around, and playing slowly. No rangers were on course to move things along. We were given 9 hole rain checks. I won’t be using them because I won’t be coming back.

WillieDate Played: 07/04/2019
This is a really great course. Tees, Fairways and Greens are in excellent condition. Every hole has the looks golfers dream of and wow! The enlongilating Greens tho... very fast like a pool table. All Staff Members were excellent. This will be my primary course to play when visiting Myrtle Beach again.

The course was in great shape. From reception to the Pro Shop to the Starter everyone was super nice and professional. I thought the handicapped recommendation of which tees to play was a nice touch.

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.
DavidDate Played: 09/09/2016
Great experience all the way around.
JimVDate Played: 09/08/2016
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.
MikeDate Played: 06/25/2016
The course condition and layout is spectacular
K.Date Played: 06/21/2016
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.
TimothyDate Played: 02/25/2016
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.
BillyDate Played: 01/20/2016
Been playing Heritage since 1989, favorite course. Was not made aware of food/beverage coupons until we checked in at pro shop.
HollyDate Played: 11/02/2015
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.

Staff was great.
KristianDate Played: 06/01/2015
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!
DarrollDate Played: 04/20/2015
Very nice course but last holes really unplayable so wet, although we toughed out a severe downpour on the last hole!
JeffDate Played: 02/21/2015
Classy course, beautiful layout, nice staff. Holds up very well to any course in Myrtle Beach area.
TimothyDate Played: 01/08/2015
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.
RonDate Played: 12/07/2014
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.
EdwardDate Played: 10/26/2014
Liked the layout and Southern charm.
KenDate Played: 10/25/2014
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.
TimDate Played: 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.
JiimDate Played: 10/14/2014
Great hole design.
GaryDate Played: 10/08/2014
Very nice course, slow play they stack them in to tight cant get a replay dont think we will play there next year.

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

DonDate Played: 09/26/2014
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.
RustyDate Played: 09/24/2014
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!!
ColvinDate Played: 09/09/2014
This was the best course we played on vacation. Highly recommended.
M/MDate Played: 09/01/2014
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.
PhillipDate Played: 08/27/2014
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!
TommyDate Played: 08/27/2014
Plug the greens and didnt tell us ... at bag drop the guys were jerks.

Beautiful course, great greens
StephenDate Played: 03/26/2014
Great overall experience. We were the first group out at 7:32am off the back and really made great time (a little over 2 hrs) but when we made the turn we caught the group in front of us at ##11 and it was very slow after that and turned into a five hour round which was very disappointing after being the first group out. The grill, the food and the staff were excellent!

Nice golf course and in good condition, but the rudest and most unprofessional attendants in the golf cart/bag area and in the pro shop I have encountered in over 20 years of coming to MB. My experience at the other courses ( Litchfield CC, River Club)we played on your property was a very positive experience. The treatment of your staff at the Heritage towards the group I was with has lead me to never return to Litchfield again, theres to many other properties and courses to stay at and play.
JustinDate Played: 03/07/2014
Course was great only complaint was the beverage cart, ordered 2 beer and 2 vodka and she drove away with the beers and had to be chased down to get them then managed to put all of the vodka into 1 cup and none in the other. Not impressed at all and for 30$ it should have been right!

This was our third time playing this course, and we experienced very slow play and long rounds. Will not play there again.
MarkDate Played: 01/15/2014
Greens were a little slow. We were approached in the first fairway about keeping up with pace of place and we waited on every shopt on the hole. Not a great way to start the week and day.

That it had recently been aerated
BrianDate Played: 06/19/2013
They didn't tell us the greens had been airriated, then didn't even offer a discount for the airrification. Then we stopped after 9 holes to get food, and then rushed us on the next 4 holes, when there was no one behind us. I nor my playing partners cannot even remember holes 10-14 because we were rushed. We will never play here again and will tell everyone we see to never choose this course.
RickDate Played: 06/03/2013
Have been taking groups to MB for over 15 years and always enjoy Heritage. Have to say am suprised at the number of negative reviews of this course. Was there May 22nd and conditions were great and staff was very helpful. Only issue was the severity of the pin placements-- but as always the course was absolutely beautiful. Always one of my favaorite in MB and will definately return soon.
JohnDate Played: 05/20/2013
The course was in it's usual great condition. Play was a bit slow and could have been moved along a bit by staff.

JayDate Played: 04/18/2013
Tees not mowed; 5.5 hours for 18 holes (way to slow) Third year in a row that our 2 foursomes have had to wait 15 minutes at the first tee- focus is definately to maximize number of groups that can be sandwiched onto the course.
WillDate Played: 04/17/2013
Round played in excess of 5 hours, un-raked bunkers.
JohnDate Played: 04/16/2013
Overall, the potential is there but way too many faults to overlook. Pro shop staff very poor in customer relations. It seemed as if they just wanted to put as many people out as possible and then have the rangers push us around the course!
LawrenceDate Played: 04/09/2013

Not that impressed
MichaelDate Played: 02/19/2013
I played this course last week with friends. I was concerned because many of the reviews were negative with regard to staff and marshalls. The reviews were spot on. Long story short, our foursome played the course at just under 4 hours. We were asked by the Marshall to speed up four times even though we never saw anyone in front or behind us and he stopped to stare at us a 5th time. We did speed up each time and asked the Marshall why we were being pressured. He basically said that they reserve the right to put other groups in front or behind you at any time. That didn't happen and, as I said, we never saw another group. The course was beautiful and in pristine shape almost as nice as Caledonia) but the staff turned what should have been a great experience into a tense, stressful, irritating one.
NoelDate Played: 02/13/2013
Great fit for our group of duffers. Everyone loved the course and the personnel. Kudos to the grill staff for their service and good food.

DougDate Played: 02/12/2013
Much more reflective of the golf courses we play on and the grass was clearly different than Heathland and Moorland. We would play this course again as we enjoyed it very much.
DickDate Played: 02/11/2013
MikeDate Played: 02/07/2013
The greens have way too much undulation and were bog slow. The senior tees (I'm 67) were way too far up on several holes, sometimes just the blocks out in the fairway. Couldn't use driver on at least half the non-par 3's.
SteveDate Played: 02/07/2013
With 25+ mph wind, I don't think they should put the pins at the edges of the greens. This is not the US Open. Pins should be more in the middle of the greens.
MikeDate Played: 01/29/2013
Seems like their only concern is pace of play. Pro Shop did not have yardage books and the GPS did not work in the cart. Cart was clearly marked GPS bad but starter did not replace cart.
JeromeDate Played: 12/23/2012
We had rain in the AM but the course was in pretty good shape. Starting on the back nine was a bit tricky. All in all by the time we play the front nine the course had drained and play was much better.
GaryDate Played: 12/09/2012
Have never dealt with such rude people, ask about the GPS on the carts, told it was 2 dollars to rent, went to pay and said needed to pay starter, when got to cart wire was pulled off, ask attendant if it would work without that wire, he said most likely not and walked away. when returning after 18 had to unload own clubs at clubhouse and walk quite a distance to car, attendant was rude, when coming back with the car to get the clubs, a foursome pulled in and attendant unloaded their clubs, loaded onto a cart he had there and drove them to their car and dropped them off. Will never play this course again even though we really like the course itself.

Incredibly snotty people.
W.B.Date Played: 12/04/2012
We had a group of 20 golfers, all 6-11 handicap players, that played the Heritage course on Saturday, Dec. 1, 2012. The experience was the worst in almost 20 years of playing Myrtle Beach. It started with the attitude of the older man taking bags from our cars. He gave the impression that we were a bother to him and refused to get my bag after I asked him to let me change 1 club in my bag. During the round we were told we were 12 minutes behind when we were not. The course was in fair shape but the attitudes of the staff there were bad enough to keep me from returning. They lost additional revenue due to the fact that we went somewhere else to play an additional 9 holes and did not go into the pro shop to buy any merchandise. They also lost money from bar sales.

DaveDate Played: 10/20/2012
Course itself was in good shape, but our group (12 of us) did not have a good experience. Course was overbooked; they started us on the back 9 and we were backed up for the first 3 holes. Once we got going, things were OK until the turn. As we came into the clubhouse, we were greeted (somewhat brusquely) by some kid from the pro shop who informed us that we were holding up play and they wanted us to proceed directly to the next hole. We informed him that there was nobody behind us (and there had not been for about 5 holes). He responded, don't worry about what's behind you, just get going. We were then basically followed by a ranger throughout most of the back 9, who kept telling us to pick up our pace, despite the fact that there was still nobody behind us. As it turns out, they had booked a wedding party for that afternoon, and I suppose they just wanted to get us all off of the course. At the end of the round, one of our group was informed, your round is done, so now you can leave. Trust me when I tell you that we did leave, and it will be a very long time before Heritage sees any of the twelve of us again.

This was the day 7 inches of rain fell in Horry/Georgetwon counties. The course should have been closed by 3 p.m. and we should have been given a refund/credit (we completed four holes). However, the staff allowed us to wait until 5:30 p.m. before we decided that we would take a nine-hole rain check as heavy rains were still falling. As we were departing, the head pro/general manager told the remaining staff that the course was now closed. The staff did arrange a tee time for us at Legends Parkland for the next day (Please see my comments about Parkland). It became obvious that the management waited until we decided to take a rain check rather than close the course and give us a refund/credit.
SteveDate Played: 05/25/2012
Hurry up and wait! They tee you off every 5 minutes and then you wait on every shot. Nice layout but its a 5 1/2-hr round. That's not golf, that's bull____! NEVER again, NEVER. I would rather pay the extra $$ and play Caledonia or True Blue, at least you can play with a rhythm to your game. Heritage really (stinks) anymore and the people working there act like they are the only persons that know how to golf! I am a 2 hdcp. and I don't need some idiot from Heritage telling me how to golf!

BillDate Played: 05/02/2012
We teed off at 7:00, made the turn at 8:55, had to wait till 9:24 to tee off the back and finished at 12:05. Any way you look at it they make you play a 5-hour round.
JoeDate Played: 05/01/2012
Pace of play was too slow, and a replay was not available even though we teed off at 7:08 a.m.

GeorgeDate Played: 04/28/2012
The starter was fine, but at the end of the round we took the carts to the parking lot not realizing we were not supposed to. The cart man came to the lot and berated us for doing so. I tried to apologize because we did not see a sign but he just turned his head and drove off. Our other members said he was talking about it when he got back to the clubhouse. It is a shame that the last day of our trip ended on such a sour note. We will not go back to the Heritage course again. We go to Myrtle every October also.
KennethDate Played: 04/27/2012
Tee boxes horrible. We only played 3 holes then got rained out. We waited 3 hours when they finally closed course for day. Mike was kind enough to give my group an 18-hole rain check. MY QUESTION ... WHEN WE BOOK NEXT YEAR HOW WOULD LONG BAY HANDLE WHEN SCHEDULING BASED ON RAIN CHECKS?

Nice course. Greens are in good condition. Dry and rapid. Fairways well maintained. Some tee areas are in poor condition. We hated that some tees have been put in the alley, particularly women's tees .We loved the holes around a huge lake. Windy but challenging. Staff is efficient and welcoming.
DarrenDate Played: 04/12/2012
Some very nasty, tough greens. Greens had been top dressed recently, so even harder to read. Some very large swales & hills on these greens. Hole #2 listed as 540-yd. par 5. Apparently our group hits it long as 3 of us reached the hazard that is suppose to be 360 yds. out (yardage is off on this hole!). Course not as green as others we played thus week. A few tees were in poor shape. Numerous holes take the driver out of your hands due to layout. Fairways were in good shape, staff was good as well.

PeteMDate Played: 03/03/2012
<p>Played four Legends courses. We were supposed to play Parkland on our last day but as we have played that before and really liked Heathland, we opted for a replay at Heathland. Oyster Bay - 2/27; Heathland and Heritage - 2/28; Moorland and Heathland - 2/29. <p>Heritage - The last time I played here was in the late 80s - early 90s. Back then it was one of THE top tier courses, very well maintained, lots of distance between holes so at times, you really felt like you were the only ones out there playing. They have since put houses on every available square inch. I guess they had to do what they had to do but it has really taken away from the aesthetics. It wasn't quite the same condition as I remember but it wasn't horrible. Tee to green was pretty good but like I said, certainly not to the standard it once was. One annoying thing here was the ranger. Now, while I usually like to see them out there moving things along, at too many times this guy kept coming up on us telling us to get it moving ... as the group in front of us were just clearing the green and the one behind us was nowhere to be found. At one point he actually told us we were about 2 minutes behind. Two whole minutes? Really? We were waiting on almost every shot we took. Whatever. It's still a decent course and does have some nice holes but will probably leave this one alone from now on and look at other courses in the Pawleys Island area. There are far too many nice ones all within shouting distance to the Heritage to put up with that nonsense. <p>If you go to the Legends with the understanding that it's a golf factory and they'll get as many greens fees as they can during the course of the day then you'll be OK. However when THEY were the ones that booked our times, especially the 7:00 at Heathland/1:00 at Heritage (which is a 45-minute drive from one to the other), they should really cut back on the morning times going out the back or make sure things are moving along.

JocelyneDate Played: 02/15/2012
Very unprofessional, very bad experience. This was our favorite course in the past but will forget it for a while. After having spent more than an hour on the road to get there, our reservation had not been registered; they decided to squeeze us in a shotgun at 9:32 a.m. but we had to wait until 11 a.m.; in the meantime, we decided to go to the driving range but could not get a basket or even a spot to practice. When we finally started the shotgun, we had to change our cart after the 3rd hole because the GPS wasn't working. Unfortunately, the new cart's battery was showing signs of distress after a few holes and we had to be pushed to finish our game! Won't definitely go back in the near future because not only are the course's conditions deteriorating, but the whole environment is getting very unwelcoming.

AndyDate Played: 11/15/2011
Excellent course - our group's favorite of the courses in our package. Pro shop staff was excellent - unable to get a replay, but they called Founders and got us a tee time. Would recommend to all.

JasonDate Played: 08/21/2011
Very disappointed. Quit with 4 holes to play. Played 1st nine in 2 hrs. Played 10-13 in an hr. Ladies group and rental club beginners in front of us. Had 4 groups on one hole. Starter told us we were 8 min. behind on the front and was an ass about it. We had been waiting on every hole from the women in front of us. We had one hole we were slow on. Honestly, he really made me mad and he had attitude. The pro shop was very understanding and accommodating. They gave my partner and I 2 free rounds to be used anytime. The pro was great.
LenDate Played: 06/14/2011
Very nice overall. Greens super-fast compared to other courses. Toughest greens by far. Maybe easier pin placements? Almost my best round with 6 three-putts.

MattDate Played: 05/27/2011
The course was stacked up on a VERY busy Saturday morning. We waited on probably 14 of 18 tee boxes. This did not stop your marshal from coming around and harassing us to play faster. I didn't mind waiting, I did mind being harassed. If I'm holding up play, fine, but if I'm waiting on almost every tee box, how exactly am I supposed to play faster? This negatively impacted our enjoyment of the round on a great course.

EricDate Played: 04/15/2011
First time playing Heritage. The layout is great but conditions (mainly tee boxes) were average. Course was packed and the first 9 holes took 3 hrs to play because of a crossover ... second 9 only 2 hrs.
GregDate Played: 04/15/2011
The course was very nice and in excellent condition. The only negative was the length of the round. It took almost 6 hours and that is unacceptable. The Legends courses are golf factories putting groups front and back every 8 minutes.
JohnDate Played: 04/15/2011
Inappropriate actions by rangers and assistant pro made the round exasperating. They would tell us we were late and slow while we were neither based on the holes just played and the format we were playing. They were rude and interfered to an unacceptable extent. I will not be returning here.

Great shape, pace of play was slow; waited on every shot.
FrankDate Played: 03/30/2011

The greens are ridiculous, the bunkers were not in good shape but I like the course and the whole deal was excellent. Good staff, good service, good food, best of our trip.

I have golfed this course several times now and I'm never disappointed. One of the best layouts on the Strand. The course is a little beat up but for $55 with a lunch and 2 beers, I understand why. If the conditions were top notch, you would have a tough time finding a better course.

The grill/bar staff was exceptional. Glad you had shower facilities after the match; we were leaving directly to go home. It would have been convenient if the showers were separate from the restrooms. Lots of water. This course was well-kept. Play moved well; no holdups at tees. This was my first trip to MB to golf; it will not be the last.
RobertDate Played: 10/31/2010
Heritage is a great course and one of my favorite. However, course was overbooked, golf round took 6 hours, cart girl lacked golf course etiquette with no respect for golfers. 20 minute delay in starting due to no golf carts. Destroyed what has always been a great experience. Course marshall's response to slow play, enjoy the great scenery. Will not come back.

Absolutely a beautiful golf course. Starters were less than helpful, pro shop personnel were boors, and the waitresses in the grill were sea-slug slow. Hire someone to teach your staff some manners, and how to provide some customer service.
JoeDate Played: 10/13/2010
Outstanding course conditions; some of the trees in the middle of the fairway and around the greens are a bit gimmicky. The trees are pretty, but they remind me of a Pete Dye course where you get punished for what someone thinks is a good tee shot until stymied by a tree.

Solid course not too difficult; greens seem to be the only defense. Back 9 greens were sandy but was still a nice layout.

Wonderful golf course, we really enjoyed it.
