New Greens Mean Better Experience at Shaftesbury Glen

Play the recently renovated course as part of MyrtleBeachGolf.net’s Ultimate Glens package

A 6,935-yard Clyde Johnston design that opened in 2001, Shaftesbury Glen closed its doors in June 2019 and is scheduled to reopen in August with Sunday ultradwarf Bermuda greens, along with a series of other changes to improve the golf experience at the club. That means that you and your group can be some of the very first to experience the upgraded course this fall as part of MyrtleBeachGolf.net’s Ultimate Glens stay & play package.

The Ultimate Glens special includes eight rounds for the price of three along with free range balls and free lunch on each day of play.

Here’s how the package works:

Pay for three rounds and get your fourth round free when you play Shaftesbury Glen, Arrowhead Country Club, Possum Trot and Glen Dornoch. Plus, you’ll receive the option to book a free replay at each course through MyrtleBeachGolf.net beforehand so you don’t have to risk waiting until the day-of – all for the price of just three rounds. Free replay tee times start after 1:30 p.m. unless otherwise specified.

Shaftesbury Glen welcomes players with an iconic stone-clad entrance and English-styled clubhouse. With tee boxes, fairways and greens that are large, this English-inspired course has received numerous accolades for its playability. Now, that high level of playability will be elevated by renovations made to the course and its facilities during summer.

Bentgrass was once considered the best putting surface in the Carolinas, but has been gradually phased out in the Southeast region in favor of warm-weather Bermudagrasses that provide similar putting surfaces but aren’t stressed by summer heat. Shaftesbury’s management considered different kinds of Bermudagrasses, but ultimately settled on Sunday Bermudagrass, which has been installed with rave customer reviews at several Myrtle Beach-area courses.

In addition to the new greens, the driving range will receive a remodeling including a new chipping and putting green with Sunday Bermuda. And a project to add waste bunkers to fairways throughout the course will also be completed this summer along with another 250,000 square feet of waste areas on nine holes that will improve drainage and allow increased cart traffic (the other nine was done in 2016).

Shaftesbury Glen, already one of the best courses on the Strand, just got a whole lot better. Experience the Ultimate Glens package and see it for yourself this fall with MyrtleBeachGolf.net and SeaSide Resorts.
