Heron Point Golf Club’s future clouded by indenture deed restrictions

Since Heron Point Golf Club closed on Nov. 28 primarily because of a lack of business, the property has remained vacant as majority partner Roy Clyburn contemplates what next to do with it.

Recent developments make the future of the former course even more uncertain.

The approximate 160-acre Heron Point property off S.C. 707 is zoned general residential, so Clyburn figured to have a lot of options with it.

But the homeowner association around the property, the Myrtle Beach Golf & Yacht Club HOA, says it has discovered an indenture deed dated April 15, 1992, that limited use of the land to a golf course or country club.
