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.

Great course! Great staff! Pace of play the day we played was poor. 5 hour round. stater said "we play a 15 minute whole round". not even close. 1st ranger we saw was on 18 and we told him how bad pace was. HIs answer was "well you know its a resort course". Yes we knew having played there numerous times. Never before has it taken so long. Would return though because the course is that good.

Great course staff friendly and professional. pace of play was poor. 5 hour round. starter said they had a 15 minute per hole pace. not even close. 1st ranger we saw was on 18th fairway. he asked show round was and when he was told slow his answer was "well you know its a resort course". having played there numerous times we knew it was a resort course but never had the pace been so bad. we would return though,since the course is that good.

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.

I would play this course again.
The slightly more selective of the South Carolina Golf Course Ratings Panel’s two bi-annual rankings is loaded with Grand Strand options. In total, 13 of the 31 Best You Can Play Public Access Courses in the state fall inside the Myrtle Beach area, and they are a regular who’s who of the regularly awarded tracks.
The Grande Dunes Golf Performance Center at Grande Dunes Resort Golf Club in Myrtle Beach, S.C. opened on April 1. The elite facility is designed to fit you with the best equipment and improve your game with instruction using the latest technology found in few other places.
Have you ever wondered what taking the 18 best of those holes and combining them to create one championship golf course would be like? The South Carolina Golf Course Ratings Panel and Myrtle Beach Golf Trips recently teamed up to find out.
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.
