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 golf course was in excellent shape. Despite the fact that it was the middle of July the greens were in fantastic condition, and were 11 or 12 on the stimp meter. All staff were extremely friendly and helpful. My favorite place to play in Myrtle Beach.

Nice course. Some great views on holes along the waterway. A little disappointed with the greens which had been aeriated, however still worth a visit.

Nice course. Some great views from the holes along the waterway. Little disappointed with greens which had been punched, however still worth a visit.

When you cross the Grande Dunes bridge, you can look over to see this course. This time when I looked over I noticed the course was brown. Very disappointed. Something is up w/ the water system maybe? Not sure. But, the fairways are in very bad shape. The sand traps are basically not sand traps, they are mud with sand traps. Hoping this course is better by the fall.

Grande Dunes was nice, but needed yardage book to understand layout. Received this free at other courses played, but not here. Liked the course overall, but did not like waiting at the turn. First tee time off at 7:30 and finished front nine in great time. Had to wait at turn for 2-3 groups they put off the back (did not like waiting...really slowed us down and killed rhythm for players. Breakfast sandwich was great. Clubhouse was good...bag girl didn't like that I grabbed my bag, but her priority was getting the rest of the carts out versus getting us started. Nice course overall.

I'm glad to see that Grande Dunes is once again offering complimentary range balls. Good call by management to bring that back. I enjoy the golf course, it is a fun track with some really good holes. The fairways were pretty good. The greens were very good. Tees good as well. Now the downside, this course has the worst bunker conditions that I have ever seen on a golf course. They are really bad. They were bad and yesterday's heavy rain just totally wiped them out. Because everything else is pretty darn good I'll be back but Please Fix Your Sand Traps!
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.
