The Shaftesbury Glen Golf Course is a Clyde Johnston masterpiece set on beautiful vast lands of the Carolinas. This superb golf course has the unique design that keeps on attracting golf enthusiasts ever since the layout’s inception. Inspired by the Winged Foot Golf Club’s West Course as well as the Augusta National, this challenging 18-hole championship golf gem features the picture-perfect traps, elevated greens, demanding doglegs, and the wide-flowing fairways. And in order to successfully go through the tough tests of golf, golfers must also make their way to the course’s long par 5s and the enthralling par 3s.
This award-winning golf vacation destination also bears the traditional look that is distinct in most of the English-inspired layouts. From the main entrance of the Shaftesbury Glen Golf Course all the way to the magnificent club house, guests can’t help but just stand rapt in awe upon seeing the glorious beauty that is magnificently combined with the glorious golf holes. Among the prestigious awards that this golf gem has been receiving include a nomination from Golf Digest as the “Best New Public Course in America”, and “Myrtle Beach’s Best A-1 Bent Greens”.
Aside from the elevated greens and wide fairways, the Shaftesbury Glen Golf Course also provides the golfing guests the four sets of tees that play at 4,976 yards to 6,935 yards. Even at the start of your game at the par-4 hole #1, you are already provided with the challenges comprised of a flashed up bunker set on the laser straight fairway. When playing at this challenging golf course, expect that the entire layout bears the trademark of this kind of bunkering along with the greenside traps. If there’s one best description that would best fit this golf vacation destination, it would be “a unique golf escape set amid the sea of clones.”
