Golf courses all like to claim a memorable finish, but Glen Dornoch, unquestionably, delivers on the promise. Holes 16 through 18 are among the prettiest and most challenging along the Grand Strand, cementing the Clyde Johnston design’s place among the area’s best.
Starting with the perilous downhill approach on the 16th, the Intracoastal Waterway defines the final three holes. The 17th is among the state’s most scenic par 3s, featuring a green surrounded on two sides by the marshy waters of the Intracoastal.
The 18th, which shares a long double green with the ninth hole, plays along the waterway and is just yards from a clubhouse deck that begs golfers to enjoy a post round drink.
The course, playing 6,035 yards from the white tees and 6,436 from the blues, doesn’t require great length off the tee. Finding the fairway is much more important than hitting the ball a long way, because it positions players to hit a quality approach.
No matter how purely you hit the ball, Glen Dornoch delivers a memorable round of golf.
