Sean “The Beast” Fister is one of the game’s most prodigious long hitters: a three-time World Long Drive Champion who has been known to demolish golf balls and send them into orbit, never to be seen again. He is also Myrtle Beach’s newest resident, on a mission to help area and visiting golfers add yardage and distance to their games. The Beast recently joined the instruction staff at the Dustin Johnson Golf School at TPC Myrtle Beach in Murrells Inlet, S.C., and is excited to be part of the Waccamaw Golf Trail community.
A pristine Dan Maples design in a magnificent setting where time stands still, amid a dramatic array of century-old oaks, old-growth pines and a plantation-style, colonial clubhouse.
The Heritage Club is all about gracious, tasteful living. Look at the houses along the course and you’ll know what I mean; graceful estates that exemplify southern plantation living. Driving to the golf course you get the sense that you’re in store for something special.
Your day at the Heritage Club begins at the gated entrance and a drive beneath majestic oak trees leading to a Southern Colonial clubhouse overlooking the Waccamaw River. This 18-hole Dan Maples masterpiece is built on the site of the True Blue and Midway Plantations, where over 600 acres of magnolia trees, 300-year-old moss-draped oaks, and fresh water lakes and marshes have been transformed into a golf course and community that rival the finest in America. It’s no wonder that the Heritage Club was ranked #33 in 2009 by Golf Digest as one of “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses” and has received 4 ½ stars in “Best Places to Play”.
