Rated by Golf Magazine as the No. 1 "best bang for your buck" course in Myrtle Beach, Heron Point is a beautiful 18-hole course that winds through beautiful Carolina Pine Forest and quaint beach neighborhoods. Golfers often spot hawks, eagles, wild turkey, fox, deer and even alligators during a round.

Designed by Willard Byrd, Heron Point offers a challenging round with plenty of water, bunkers, and narrow fairways that makes for a true "shot-makers" course.

It's a shot-makers course with narrow fairways and a lot of water and sand. The course has two tough holes at the end of the front nine. No. 8 is a deceivingly simple-looking hole, a 387-yard par-4 with two fairway bunkers and an elevated green with a deep bunker guarding the front which catches more than a few short shots.
Out of bounds is down the right side, where most golfers hit, and around to the back side of the green. Pin placements can make this very difficult. No. 9 is a 546-yard par-5 with a pond coming into play left off the tee, and out of bounds both sides. The green is well-bunkered and deep.
After a series of relatively easy holes, the finisher is surprisingly tough, a 511-yard par-5 guarded on the entire left side by water. The second shot must avoid three large trees to the right 100 yards from the green, which is large and well-protected.
Heron Point is a Scottish-influenced course where the wind can dramatically alter the playability.
