About Glen Dornoch Waterway Golf (Little River, SC)

A densely packed 270-acre pocket of beauty with thick stands of pine, oak and magnolia, the Glen Dornoch Waterway Links has been a favorite of area golfers and visitors alike since opening for play in 1996. Bucking the status quo of flat coastal courses, this course enjoys a 35-foot change in elevation and a prime location next to the Intracoastal Waterway in Little River.

One of Golf Magazine’s Top 20 courses in the southern U.S., the course rolls through pines, magnolias, live oaks, wetlands, and salt marshes with plenty of gorgeous river views.

Designed by golf course architect Clyde Johnson, the course takes its name from Scotland’s Royal Dornoch club with its design echoing the style of one of that club’s legendary members, Donald Ross, the grandfather of golf course design. The course eases golfers into their round with three par-4 holes followed by a short par 3. After that, the course gets a deal more demanding, ending on three of the Grand Strand’s more challenging final holes, like the par-4 16th, that holes out on a postage stamp green sticking out into the Intracoastal Waterway.

The course has a lot going for it in addition to a great design. With a location north of the Little River’s main docks, golfers get to enjoy a steady parade of boats. And the clubhouse is as grand as any to be found with a pro shop, a lounge, and beautiful views of the course and Intracoastal Waterway.

Supposedly had a change over w greens keeper or something because it was in significantly better condition we played it in last year. A more relaxing course than the tougher corses like thistle and the dye. And the way it runs along the water makes for some nice sightseeing.
