About Shaftesbury Glen Golf & Fish Club (Conway, SC)

One of coastal Carolina’s best-conditioned courses, the Shaftesbury Glen Golf Course in Conway has been honored time and time again for having the Grand Strand’s best greens. But it’s more than the greens that make this an excellent choice for golfers of any skill level.

A Clyde Johnson design, this 18-hole course plays at 6,812 yards from the back tees and opened in 2001, being named Myrtle Beach’s best course in 2009. Laid out along the Waccamaw River, it features wide and flowing fairways and elevated greens with an old English style clubhouse and other touches that call to mind its namesake course at Shaftesbury England.

It features 50 sand traps of all shapes sizes and steepness. With plenty of bunkers around the greens, precision is required around those greens for a decent score. The course features a full service and well-stocked pro shop with individual golf lessons available, a large practice facility with putting green and driving range, and a clubhouse with a restaurant and snack bar.

This course was in great shape - the best track that our group played all week. Fairways and greens were in great shape. On a down side we played 18 in the morning and another 18 in the afternoon and the ranger was nowhere to be seen in the evening. The result was that our last three groups were forced to finish in the dark due to a group in front of us that was at least 3 holes behind the group in front of them.

This golf course was in great shape fairways greens and rough were all in very good shape. The only complaint is that on the back nine we were behind a group that ended up finishing about 3 holes behind the group in front of them which led to our last 3 groups having to finish the round in the dark no ranger was in sight to promote a normal pace of play for the entire afternoon.

Good course with challenging greens as they are all above the level of the fairway requiring accurate approach shots or adventurous chipping. Greens in good condition. Staff was good with the exception of bag drop where for some strange reason they would not load carts until 15 minutes prior to tee time even though we were the first groups out for the day all present and carts already at the bag drop. Resulted in unnecessary chaos as bag drop filled with later tee times.

Fun course that is difficult at around the greens. Almost every green is elevated above fairway level so no running the ball up and tough chipping. Staff was okay but slow to get going in morning waiting to get carts loaded to just prior to tee times even though our group had first times of the day. Made things unnecessarily chaotic.

This was my first golf trip to Myrtle Beach and Shaftesbury was the first course we played. I was extremely impressed with this course. Great greens, forgiving fairways, and waste bunkers everywhere! I have never played a golf course quite like this. One other cool thing about Shaftesbury was how secluded it was. Once you are on the property, it is all about golf! The resturant had amazing food and a great beer selection to choose from. We will definitely have to include Shaftesbury in our next trip March 2021!!
