A day at The Heritage Club is a trip back in time. Built on two historic South Carolina plantations along the scenic Waccamaw River, The Heritage Club is a traditional favorite of Grand Strand golfers. Over 600 acres of giant magnolias, 300-year-old oaks, freshwater lakes and marshes have been transformed into a golf course that rivals any course in the Southeast. Ranked among the "50 Best Public Courses in America" by Golf Digest in 1990 and rated 4½ stars in "2006 Places to Play", The Heritage Club is pure southern charm and hospitality.

Ranked among the "50 Best Public Courses in America" by Golf Digest, the Par 71 Heritage Club golf course is a world of rolling fairways with generous landing areas, large and undulating greens that roll fast and true. At one with nature the layout is a sea of wildflowers and flowering shrubs punctuated with lush stands of crepe myrtle, camellias and azaleas. The course is as easy on the eye as it is enjoyable to play.

Green fees currently start at $105.

Where to Stay:

I recommend you try the Litchfield Beach and Golf Resort. It's located within minutes of the Golf Courses and offers a full range of amenities, including more than seven miles of pristine beach.

How to get There:

The Waccamaw Golf Trail is located in Georgetown County on the Grand Strand. The closest regional airport is the Myrtle Beach Airport. The airport is served by Delta, Continental, US Air, SpiritAir, and several others.

Look for the best airline and car rental deals with these two aggregators, which provide travelers with an up-to-date search tool to compare prices on airfares and car rentals of all ratings:

Only in Georgetown County, SC will you find such a diversity of golf courses and resorts to choose from. This is one I can personally recommend.
