Glen Dornoch and Heather Glen of the Glens Golf Group have been ranked among America’s best golf courses in the 2009/2010 edition of Zagat’s America’s Top Golf Courses 6th Edition. The guide surveyed more than 6,054 avid golfers from the United States, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands for the ratings and reviews on over 1,000 public, semi-private and resort courses.

Glen Dornoch and Heather Glen were both rated as “very good to excellent” in all categories including the course, facilities, service, and value. Glen Dornoch was described as the “best three-hole finish on the Grand Strand,” with “excellent course conditions, breathtaking views of the Intracoastal Waterway and attentive service.”

The surveyors also described Heather Glen as a “gem” that offers a “beautiful, unique Scottish links layout,” with “well-thought-out holes” featuring “lots of trees and variation in elevation” along with “great bunkering.”

“The Glens Golf Group is excited and honored to have Zagat rate our courses so highly,” said Jason Himmelsbach, director of marketing for The Glens Golf Group. “We pride ourselves on outstanding customer service and well- conditioned courses, so to be recognized by Zagat is truly outstanding.”

About The Glens Golf Group

The flagship of The Glens Golf Group is Heather Glen, which is located in Little River, S.C. on a magnificent, 400-acre historic site. Designed by Willard Byrd and Clyde Johnston, the course opened in 1987.

Glen Dornoch Waterway Golf Links, often referred to as “Myrtle Beach’s Most Talked About Course,” was designed by Clyde Johnston in a tribute to legendary course architect Donald Ross. Glen Dornoch is a traditional course and each hole flows with the natural terrain of lakes, live oaks and spectacular marsh and river views.

Known as the “Friendliest Course On The Beach,” Possum Trot has an honored place in the history of Myrtle Beach golf. One of the first ten championship courses built along Myrtle Beach’s Grand Strand, which now has more than 100 golf courses, Possum Trot has stood the test of time. The course’s Old English design features spacious fairways, challenging par 5’s, as well as flawlessly manicured greens and spectacular flower displays.

Inspired by world-famous courses like Winged Foot and Augusta National, architect Clyde Johnston designed a traditional British Isles course at Shaftesbury Glen Golf & Fish Club, located on the banks of South Carolina’s beautiful Waccamaw River.
