Shaftesbury Glen is a Clyde Johnson masterpiece that was inspired by the designs at Winged Foot and Augusta National. The layout highlights features reminiscent of typical courses of the British Isles, with wide flowing fairways and raised bent grass greens, as it winds though forests and farmlands along the Waccamaw River.
This manicured layout includes plentiful lakes, marshes and ponds with 13 of the holes having water hazards in play in some shape or form – mostly on the perimeters. There also are 50 sand bunkers located near the landing zones off the tee or situated greenside. The putting surfaces are large and only mildly undulating with open fronts, but are quite raised and often well bunkered.
The landscaping and conditioning here are top notch, and the four sets of tees provide golfers of all skill levels with an opportunity to choose a set that fits their game. The tips measure 6935 yards with a 140 slope, while alternate tees play to 6445 yards/135 slope, 5989 yards/128 slope and 4976 yards with a slope of 118.

Shaftesbury Glen course is a hidden Gem and a must-play in the area. The location is off the beaten path but worth it. The bent greens are consistently well maintained, greens are quick with deep buckers. It doesn’t disappoint.
- Bent Green well Maintained
- Deep Buckers make it interesting
- Fast Greens
- Nice Practice Area
- Course Location off the “Beaten Path” but worth the drive
