Glen Dornoch is different than most coastal golf courses, which are mostly flat, because of its rare-for-the-area 35-foot elevation changes along South Carolina’s most beautiful stretch of the Intracoastal Waterway. Designed by Clyde Johnston in 1996, Glen Dornoch is a tribute to the legendary Donald Ross.
Glen Dornoch is a traditional course where each hole flows with the natural terrain of lakes, centuries-old live oaks, and spectacular marsh and river views. This 270-acre site is blessed with a dense stand of oaks, pines, and magnolias. With respect for the land, the course was built one hole at a time. At Myrtle Beach’s Glen Dornoch, each hole flows with the natural terrain of lakes, live oaks, and spectacular marsh and river views.

HEATHER GLEN GOLF LINKS
Inspired by the earlier traditions of golf, architects Willard Byrd and Clyde Johnston and a small group of ardent lovers of the game have molded this 400-acre, heretofore untouched historic site into a golfing masterpiece. The natural beauty of ever-changing elevations, gigantic 100 year old pines, colorful dogwoods, glistening hollies, graceful live oaks, winding streams and brooks (burns) and the lovely Firth of Clyde… all crowned with a 19th Century British-styled clubhouse, have created a showcase symbolizing the beauty of Scottish tradition.
This club has three nine hole golf courses that are played in three eighteen hole combinations. All three golf courses were designed to have fifty-foot elevation changes, gigantic 100-year-old pine trees, pot bunkers, and waste areas spread throughout all twenty-seven holes. All three golf courses have narrow, tree-lined fairways. The greens are sloped and feature mounding around them. Streams come into play several times on each golf course. Heather Glen, a 27 hole facility inspired by Scottish Tradition, has been a favorite among golfers of all skill levels.
