Shaftesbury Glen was designed by Clyde Johnston, but inspired by A.W. Tillinghast’s famed West Course at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, N.Y., right down to the bentgrass greens. No. 1, a par 4 hole, features a laser straight fairway capped by a Tillinghast-esque elevated green with a flashed up bunker on its left front. This style of bunkering is omnipresent until the par four 18th, which sports five greenside traps. Johnston created a unique golf course amid a sea of clones.

Their starter system is odd. Making the plays just stand around waiting for them to load your cart
It's about 15 minutes from Tanger Outlets at Rt 17+22, not as far away as many courses we play.
Most fairways are wide, but the tightest tree lined hole is #1.
The greens are elevated. On most holes the bunkers are on 1 side of the green with the bunkers being more numerous and on both sides of the greens on the back 9.
Renovations in 2016 have shallowed out the bunkers, removed some bunkers,
grassed in some steep bunker faces and added waste areas on some holes.
The new waste areas add a more modern look. The waste areas create a need for a local group
rule on how to deal with the cart ruts and footprints, due to parking/walking in
waste areas next to the green, where a bunker used to be.
Tees and Fairways were good. Bent greens were nice.
The White tees are 6445 yards, which is longer than most white tees in MB.
Consider the Gold tees at 5989 yards. I feel shaft should make the 6445 tees
Blue and Gold tees white, changing the back blue tees to Black.
The condition of the course was excellent. The best greens I played while in Myrtle Beach. They only started from number 1, so we didn't catch up with slower players on the back 9. Great condition, fast play, friendly staff. Doesn't get much better.
The greens had been "aerated" and we did not know that when we booked the time which was a little frustrating.
Course was very wet due to rain. Greens are always good. Overseed more than most courses.
Very wet, cart path only because of heavy rain nite before. Played in 3hrs 15 min. Beautiful
