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.

The greens were in excellent condition. I played the course in early June and mid August. At both times I couldn't ask for a course in better condition.

A terrific challenging course that is just beautiful to play. With the choice of tee boxes you are able to play to your own challenge. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Great afternoon round. Condition was great as always. A couple of the traps had water in them from the thunderstorm the night before and a few fairways were soggy. Greens rolling smooth. Can't go wrong at The Grande Dunes!

Took almost 3 hours to play back nine, same thing happened last year, but we like the course, so we tried it again this year. Won't be back as we play 3-4 other courses during week vacation in Myrtle each year and pace of play is far better. 4-4:15 hours for round of golf.

Played in the afternoon and it was a pretty quick round 3 1/2 hours. Tees were in pretty good shape. Greens were good, not great. They rolled at a good speed. Fairways were just OK some bare spots but nothing major. I have played this course over the years and it was always in good shape it just seemed this time we came down it was just another average course in the area. It was neither spectacular or bad. Definitely glad we glad we played in the afternoon and got the twilight rate. Pro shop people were very nice, staff outside were very accommodating. Did not eat at the grill so I don't have a rating for that.
Out on the course, a few light beers from the drink cart or out of the cooler you hope isn't dripping on your clubs hits the spot. For some, the hours after the round are about finding something more: Better drinks, better food, better environment.
