A tale of not one but four golf courses, Heather Glen Course in Myrtle Beach is the design of architects Willard Byrd and Clyde Johnson who built three nine-hole tracks inspired by the Scottish golfing tradition. Since opening in 1987, this course has picked up a variety of honors including being named the best new course in the country.
With little housing on the course and a landscape of oaks, hollies, pines, streams and brooks, it’s a great place to relax except for one thing – the bunkers, and plenty of them deep enough to be scary. The Red Course at Heather Glenn quickly introduces golfers to the key components of the course in the form of steep bunkers close to the greens, trees placed in the trickiest of spots and pot bunkers. A bit easier than the other two nine-hole courses, the Red Course is a good choice for warming up.
Probably the most popular of the three tracks, the White nine begins with a hole requiring golfers to navigate over water, tall grass and then up a hill facing a huge bunker at eye level between them and the green. Many of the White Course’s holes feature bunkers including the appropriately named “Pot Hole,” the par-3 4th with a six-foot-tall bunker system guarding the green. Pot bunkers is a theme that repeats itself on the Blue Course, as well as a picket fence, blind shots, sharp mounds and water hazards are thrown in for good measure.
