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.

Really a fun course to play but you can see it needs some work on the tee boxes, green surrounds and bunkers. Pace of play was very good and staff was friendly as well.

A tougher course with not much forgiveness if you get outside of the rough. But it wasn’t busy even for a Saturday morning. The waterway holes are gorgeous.
