Glen Dornoch Golf Club


Glen Dornoch is one of those Grand Strand courses, but with a difference: It combines elements of Scottish links courses with Lowcountry elements.

"It is a unique blend," Head Professional Gordon McHugh told TravelGolf in this 2002 article. "You can't say it is a true links-style course because it's not wide open. But, it combines the best from both [Scotland and South Carolina] landscapes."

At 6,890 yards and with a whopping slope rating of 141, this Clyde Johnston design is one of the most challenging courses on the Grand Strand. Five holes play alongside or toward the Intracoastal Waterway.
Inspired by Donald Ross, the course has a good mix of par-4 lengths, the occasional redan hole and uses bunkers to define hole shapes and playing strategies. Pot bunkers with grass faces are to be found on nearly every hole, and the interior holes are characterized by waste areas with native grasses.
The inland holes are also lined with live oaks, pine and magnolia and seasoned with love grass and wetlands. The greens are normal-sized but with a great deal of slope, e.g. No. 6's two-tiered green with about four feet in elevation change.
