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.

Played Grande Dunes for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed it. Excellent design with several holes playing high above the Intracoastal Waterway. The course was in very good shape considering a lot of recent rain. G.D. is an excellent value and I highly recommend it. Staff was very attentive and welcoming. I will definitely play it again!!

Great club experience! Check in was effortless. Very pretty course, challenging but very playable if you choose the correct tees for your game. Definitely a must play.

The staff was the absolute best I have had the pleasure of meeting. Everything else was made. Better because of them.

Grande Dunes is one of the best choices a golfer visiting Myrtle Beach could make. It's very challenging as well as beautifully maintained. Would play again.

Would have liked to have 100, 150 and 200 yard stalks. Also, GPS info in the cart equipment on distances to fairway bunkers or water/creek hazards.

Beautiful course with interesting holes...Favorite that we played in Myrtle Beach. Back nine is so pretty and the views are wonderful. There are no markers indicating where the next hole is and so is a bit confusing. Otherwise great. They offer a 9 hole replay which we took advantage of and was the perfect amount.

We teed off at 8:45 a.m. The fairways were pretty much unplayable due to the water they put on course via their sprinklers. It was as if they forgot to turn the sprinklers off for 10 hrs. Very difficult to find a spot to hit from. Layout great, staff pleasant but course was unplayable particularly front 9. Have played here a few times but now considering taking off our favorites list. Very displeased with course conditions.
