The host site of the 2014 PGA Professional National Championship, Grande Dunes Resort Course swept the South Carolina and National Golf Course Owners Associations Course of the Year honors in 2009. It’s also been named The Myrtle Beach Sun News’ Best of the Beach top course seven times since opening to rave reviews in 2001.
“It’s really just keeping it in great shape from a condition standpoint,” head professional Matt Daly said. “Our staff works as hard as they can to keep the course in top shape. We try to focus on the service aspect to make sure guests get the best experience we can offer.
“The more you play the course, the more you’ll enjoy it. It’s definitely a top-five course in Myrtle Beach. The more I play it, the closer I think it is to No. 1.”
The aesthetic appeal of the Roger Rulewich Group design is tied to its position along the Intracoastal Waterway. Most notably, the par-four No. 9 runs parallel to the local stretch of the man-made boating access. Then, at No. 14, a downward lying par three crosses a dammed section of the Waterway, providing a perfectly photographable background from the tee box.

I would have liked to know about all the facilities you offer but besides that the course is one of Myrtle Beach's best.

Grand Dunes was a beautiful course with holes to challenge golfers at all levels. Even in the damp conditions the course held up and played very well. Being approached by the course marshal on the 2nd hole about pace with no one behind us was something we had to shrug off. Afterwards we thoroughly enjoyed our round. Great course loved every minute of my visit.

Course was in great shape! Greens were running at about 11-12 on Stimp. Would definitely play there again.

Staff was extremely accommodating. My son-in-law is a Doctor and wanting to start playing golf. We had a threesome and the course allowed him to ride along with me. I thank you!!! He will start lessons soon. Great way for him to see how the day might go.
Let’s assume that time, travel or greens fees are no concern. Be it a well-conceived trip to South Carolina’s Grand Strand or a mental trek to fantasy land, this is how I would lay out seven days’ worth of my favorite layouts. These are the best of the best.
The Happy Hour conversation from Columbus or Toronto or Glens Falls or wherever else sounded like a great idea. Later on, you green light a trip to Myrtle Beach, and you and your buddies are going to have an iconic visit to South Carolina that includes daily golf.
Each fall, professional football and the links intertwine more than some realize. There are early Sunday morning shootouts that lead back to clubhouses for watch parties and tournaments where players are asked to don the colors and logos of their favorite teams. We’re going to take it one step further. The flavor of many of the Grand Strand’s courses mirror those of at least one professional team.
