This beautiful facility is located on 270 pristine acres at the North end of the Grand Strand. Blessed with a unique topography and large mature trees, the course meanders down to the inter-coastal waterway with scenic vistas to distract you at every turn.

This 6900 yard Clyde Johnston design is owned and managed by the same group that developed the fabled Heather Glen links and the service you have grown to expect from this organization is evident the moment you drive up to the clubhouse. Give this course a try the next time you vist the Myrtle Beach area. You won't be disappointed!

Glen Dornoch

Course conditions. Greens were in pretty good shape, but speeds were very inconsistent. Areas in the fairways had either wet or dry spots with no grass in some areas. The staff were very friendly, we actually got out an hour before our tee time. Then we realized why there weren’t a lot of people playing the course. We played this course a couple of years ago and it was in much petter condition.

Not Handicap Accessible and Unfriendly Staff

Played this course 5 May 2022. Experience was not enjoyable at all. We had a handicapped golfer in our group. They had no provision for handicap flags on that course. A number of holes were cart path only (not par 3 holes). Our handicap player was confronted on a par 4 (cart path only) for driving on the fairway. Experience was so bad he stopped playing. incredible in this day and age that this course was unwilling to provide reasonable accommodation under the ADA act. After discussions with the owner at the turn, some accommodation was made but completely ruined our groups experience. We will never return to this course and caution groups who have handicapped members to 'be advised', as there is no mention of this on their current web site

Beautiful holes especially on the intercoastal

Very nice course with tall trees on both sides of fairways. Greens were in great shape they rolled well not as quick as I thought they should be. Fairways cut tight. Fun course you cannot bomb it, must think it through wether to lay up for next shot.

Awesome views

Course was in very good condition. Fairways a bit thin but will fill in soon with warmer weather. Greens were fantastic not much movement and makeable speed.. great character in the holes. Very different and challenging.. course offers a different experience from most area courses.

Great course

We played this course on a beautiful day which made the scenic beauty of the course even more enjoyable. For the most part the fairways tend to be narrow so it challenges your accuracy. . The deep bunkers and waste areas force you to really think your shot.. It doesn't happen often but the tee boxes, fairways and greens were all in great shape.. The staff were very rfriendly. We look forward to playing this gem again!

Nice but disappointing roughs

The greens and fairways are nice, but the rough is a lot of deadpan. I don't think they overseeded this year. I got a good deal on Golfnow for 50 dollars, but there regular rate of 125? No way it is worth that. I live here and there are much nicer courses for that much money, but worth 50.
