The 18th hole at Shaftesbury Glen Golf & Fish Club offers quite the welcome mat for visiting golfers. The drive leading to Shaftesbury Glen’s picturesque clubhouse offers an immediate glimpse of what you can expect in this Clyde Johnston design by leading you past a finishing hole that showcases several of the course’s signature design traits.

A par 4 playing 435 yards from the tips, 410 and 390 yards from the middle set of tees and 304 yards from the forward tees, No. 18 will steer you toward driver as the most viable option for your first shot – so long as you can keep it in the short grass. The rough at Shaftesbury Glen can get thick and punish any wayward tee shot, so we advise some caution as necessary here in your club selection.

A solitary fairway bunker guards your tee shot at the right back end of its landing area, along a fairway that narrows considerably as you move forward. A water hazard then runs along the left side of your approach, leading up to one of several elevated greens that are a defining element of this Clyde Johnston design.

Three of Shaftesbury’s trademark “finger” bunkers embedded along the upslopes make for a striking visual, and present a counter-balancing challenge to a green that offers plenty of landing area and runs more than 60 yards deep. A swale separates the front and back portions of the green. Pin placement on any given day can present a distinctly different approach shot strategy.

Your putting challenge here is in properly gauging your speed, as Shaftesbury is one of a select few designs along the Grand Strand that showcases Bentgrass greens. They can roll slick on any given day, so keep your nerves steady as you putt out to complete a memorable round.

Be sure to include Shaftesbury Glen on your next Myrtle Beach golf getaway. See how you can play it on Myrtle Beach’s Best Package this spring!
