Glen Dornoch Waterway Golf Links
Locally, statewide or across both Carolinas, Glen Dornoch Waterway Golf Links has received top honors from publications such as Golf Magazine, Zagat’s and GolfStyles. The nods from writers and visitors somehow seem to sell the course short.
Glen Dornoch has put its environment to use. It cuts through land boasting live oaks and plenty of marsh land, and the crescendoing track leads you to arguably the best last few holes on South Carolina’s Grand Strand while the scenery serves as a healthy reminder of exactly where you are.
“There are very few courses that have the [Intracoastal] Waterway views we have,” head professional Ben Acre said. “Aesthetically, it’s one of the best in the area. The course is in fantastic shape. As far as playability, it’s more of a shot-makers course. It’s not a course you don’t want to use the driver on every hole.”
That’s good, because you’ll want to save your energy there for the finisher. Chasing a fantastic par 3 on No. 17, the split-fairway No. 18 tempts even mid-range hitters to go after the secondary target area closer to the green. Reaching it means navigating past overflow areas tied to - you guessed it - the Intracoastal Waterway.
