Opened in 1996 and designed by Clyde Johnston, Glen Dornoch brings some of the aesthetics of the links courses of Great Britain and Ireland—features like pot bunkers, undulating greens and a windy site—to the Myrtle Beach golf scene. Golf Digest’s “Places to Play” list gives it four out of five stars and many locals and vacation visitors alike love the place.

The golf course measures just under 6,900 yards from the championship tees and carries one of the highest slope ratings—145—of any golf course in the Myrtle Beach area. as such, it is an ideal course for players who love a challenge to tee it up. The Intracoastal Waterway comes into play on five holes and other water hazards come into play on six more. Keeping one’s golf ball dry is only half the battle, though, as a number of pot bunkers guard the large, undulating TifEagle Bermuda putting surfaces.

The signature hole at Glen Dornoch is the finisher, a long par four that plays 455 yards from the tips, with the Intracoastal Waterway running up the left side of the hole. Players can either aim their tee shots well to the right and leave a long iron or fairway wood approach or take a daring and more direct line to the green that may leave a short iron or wedge second shot. Taking on the more aggressive option is perilous, though, as the landing area is not terribly wide. The green on the 18th is part of a double-green with the equally stunning par four 9th, guarded by half a dozen of Glen Dornoch’s trademark pot bunkers.

Off the golf course, Glen Dornoch is a gem with well-appointed facilities. The stately clubhouse overlooks the Waterway, affording golfers and other visitors from the community the opportunity to have a drink or a bite to eat with a view. The practice facilities are wonderful as well, with a spacious grass-tee driving range and a practice putting and chipping green close to the first tee.

Rain after 5 holes.

Very hard course for the average golfer to score well. Would not choose this course again.

A good course layout and well worth the play. The fairways and greens were in good shape and the course played fine despite all the rain that had been in the area over the previous days. The only real blemish was the starter being very rude to some of our guys. He wouldn't allow some of our group to go over to #10 (where we started) so they could watch our guys tee off. He said doing that "slowed down play", which is absurd. His entire attitude in general was that of someone trying to dictate rather than be helpful and he should probably find a different role where his bad attitude doesn't affect people that are just trying to have fun on their vacations.

Beautiful layout with great scenery. Tee boxes and fairways in excellent condition as of 8/30/2014. Greens for me are inconsistent and slow, and you really need to read the grain to get the right speed.

Playing in a 2some behind another 2some behind a 4some was not ideal in my mind. Might as well have paired us up.

Disappointing that yardage distances are not on most of the sprinkler heads, etc. That should be an easy fix and speaks to course maintenance.
