Glen Dornoch Golf Links has been among the area’s most popular courses since its 1996 opening and the reasons are many. Chief among Glen Dornoch assets is the variety it features. Glen Dornoch has a trio of short par 4s (350 yards or less from the tips), which always makes things fun. The short two-shotters are offset by meaty par 5s and varied challenges throughout. The Intracoastal comes into play on five holes, most memorably on the closing three holes. The 16th requires a downhill approach into a green surrounded by the marshy waters of the Intracoastal, followed by the par 3 17th hole, which has water on the left and a bunker buttressed by large railroad ties on the right. It’s arguably the most scenic hole on the course. If the 17th isn’t Glen Dornoch’s prettiest hole, No. 18 makes a compelling case. The par 4 plays along the Intracoastal and shares a large double green with the ninth hole. It’s a great finish to a round of golf. If time allows, grab a drink and enjoy the view of that double green from the clubhouse porch. A Clyde Johnston design, Glen Dornoch earned 4 stars from Golf Digest’s prestigious Best Places to Play guide, and has been ranked among the top 10 Myrtle Beach golf courses by Golf Magazine. Glen Dornoch will likely rank among your favorite courses in the area.
