Age-Restricted Retirement  Communities




The Village at the Glens is a gated golf resort community that is not age-restricted but tends to attract a more mature demographic (owners are a mix of vacation owners, second home owners and retirees).  The primary draw here is the Heather Glen Golf Course, a championship, 27-hole (3 nines) course that has won numerous accolades, including being named by Golf Digest as the "#1 Public Golf Course in America" when it opened in 1987, and all residences are nestled along its fairways.



This is a condominium and town home development.  Condos have 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and 1,040 sq. ft.  Town homes ("villas") have 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths and from 1,300 sq. ft. to 1,522 sq. ft.   Standard features include 9-ft. ceilings, ceramic tile foyers, custom cabinetry and wireless internet accessibility, as well as many others.  Prices are reasonable, starting at $169,900 for the condominiums and at $199,900 for the town homes (and some units come furnished).   HOA dues range from $183 per month to $293 per month, depending on the size and location of the unit.  Included in the HOA feees are exterior maintenance, water, sewer, cable TV, lawn upkeep, access to the pool facility and more.  Visit www.villageattheglens.com for more information.

In addition to the Heather Glen Golf Course, homeowners have access to three other championship courses - the Shaftesbury Glen Golf and Fish Club, the Possum Trot Golf Course and the Glen Dornoch Waterway Golf Links, which is right next door.  With 48 hours' notice, owners play for free, except for the golf cart fee, as do three family members or guests (a dress code is in place).  There are, though, dues of $350 a year.   Residents also have access to a practice facility complete with a driving range, putting green, chipping and bunker area. The Heather Glen Pub is also the home of delicious breakfasts and lunches, not to mention an array of cocktails.

The Village at the Glens Golf Resort is located in Little River, just north of Myrtle Beach.  The Grand Strand, a 60 mile stretch of beaches with hundreds, if not thousands, of restaurants, shops, theaters, hotels and more than 200 golf courses, begins in Little River and is a popular tourist destination.  This is the place for a fun, active retirement!   For those without a car, Coast RTA provides local bus service throughout the Strand.

This area sees 215 sunny days a year, and the water temperature averages 66 degrees.  The average January high is 56 degrees, and the average July high is 88 degrees.   Relative humidity averages 65%.
