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. Shaftesbury Glen was recently named 2009 Golf Course of the Year by Myrtle Beach area golf course owners.
