Grande Dunes - Resort Golf Club

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.

All good
by Greg - 03/05/2017
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.
by Vincente Digrazia - 02/26/2017
Great service. Course was in great shape. Fun to play.
by Brian (Brewster, NY) - 12/31/2016
I would have liked to know about all the facilities you offer but besides that the course is one of Myrtle Beach's best.

by Franchot (Marietta, GA) - 12/28/2016
Efficient check-in process and ease of getting to practice facility prior to round.
by Todd (Charlotte, NC) - 12/16/2016
The pro shop staff was very accommodating in pairing me with other golfers.
by Jimmy (Augusta, GA) - 12/10/2016
Course was well maintained, tees, fairways and greens were in excellent shape.
by J. B. (Yorktown, VA) - 12/08/2016
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.
by Allen (Jackson, NJ) - 12/07/2016
I would play this course again.
by Ben (Pottstown, PA) - 11/30/2016
Beautiful course
by John (Sierra Vista, AZ) - 11/18/2016
Course was in great shape! Greens were running at about 11-12 on Stimp. Would definitely play there again.
by Danny (Kernersville, NC) - 11/15/2016
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.
by Henry (Wallace, NC) - 11/11/2016
Wide fairways mostly, but still including some challenges in landing areas.
by Peter (Raleigh, NC) - 11/08/2016
Good experience. Would have liked to know we were starting on back 9 when tee time was made.
by Patrick (Stowe, VT) - 10/23/2016
The greens were in great condition and the fastest of the three courses we played this week.
by Jesse - 10/19/2016
As always, one of my favorite places to play when in the Myrtle Beach area.
by Daniel (Haveloc, NC) - 10/07/2016
(Liked) the course as a hole. The staff, the course and the way we were treated.
by John (Collegeville, PA) - 09/28/2016
Dry, great conditioning, nice practice center.
by Adrian - 09/26/2016
The course was in very good shape considering the weather rain of the last week. Fairways were 90% dry and the greens were true, if not a little slower than what I normally expect on a course of this status. None the less they did roll true. The design of the course was great, but it would assist players if some of the hazards or water was marked for distance of the tee. Nothing hurts more than your 280 yard straight drive rolling into a hazard that is not visible from the tee that cuts across the fairway. Speed of play however was an issue, we hit off at 8:20 and finished at 1:35. Had to wait on every tee box for 5 - 10 minutes, plus on fairways. The rangers kept telling us they were pushing the slow groups ahead of us. I don't believe them, the group ahead of us was playing the blue tees, that's almost 7200 yards, unless you are a sub 5 handicap or 280 yard plus you shouldn't play this length. They clearly were not that good as playing from the white tee's we constantly hit our tee shots up on them as they hit their 3rd shots. The rangers need to watch a hole of two and then just move them forward to the correct tee for their ability. That is one of their jobs.
by John (Powell, OH) - 09/22/2016 greens!! Loved the course and the views were amazing! Best of all, everyone from the attendants to the starters are super nice and very accommodating. I will definitely play this course again!!
by Ron (Marana, AZ) - 09/13/2016
Nice condition, nice people.
by Floyd (Bahama, NC) - 09/13/2016
Great Course
by Bob (Taylors, SC) - 09/11/2016
Nice track, good people.
by Dusty - 09/06/2016
The course was in great shape especially considering the high winds and rain that hit the area the night before and overall we enjoyed the experience. My only complaint is the starter, Barry from Andover, PA. We had roughly a 12:40 tee time and at 12:20 we were headed to the range to hit a few balls and he was already running us down as if he was in some big hurry to get us out on the course. First of all the course was not busy at all, maybe 15-20 cars in the parking lot and then he pairs us up with another couple. We politely asked if we could play just the two of us and he was having no part of that idea whatsoever stating that the course was booked solid for the day. We found that very hard to believe with only a few cars in the parking lot not to mention the fact that we had actually seen the tee sheet already that morning and the day was pretty open. This was one of the main reasons we decided to play there because we knew it wasn't going to be real busy. Despite us telling him this according to Barry the course was booked solid for the day, hard to believe that changed so much from just a couple hours ago when we checked it at 10 am that same morning. On top of pairing us up with another couple making us a foursome this genius sends a twosome off right behind us, what sense does that make?!?!?! He could have sent 3 twosomes out instead which would have created a much more steady pace of play for everyone, hope the group behind us wasn't too tired of waiting, they have Barry to thank for that. Fortunately we play quickly and stayed out of their way. If we decide to go back my only hope is that Barry will not be the starter, hard to enjoy the day when you're already annoyed before even hitting the first tee shot.
by David (Latham, NY) - 09/06/2016
Very enjoyable experience.
by James (Richmond, VA) - 09/05/2016
(Liked the) hole on waterway par 3 most likely signature hole.
by Dan (Centreville, VA) - 08/27/2016
The course was in great shape. The staff was friendly and helpful. The homes around the course were beautiful. The greens were super fast.
by Matt (Marlboro, NJ) - 08/26/2016
Course in great shape. Starters friendly and greens roll true. Fast greens.
by Jason (Strongsville, OH) - 08/22/2016
The course was awesome, great condition!
by Jonathan (Bolivar, NY) - 08/17/2016
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.
by Wayne (Mechanicsburg, PA) - 08/17/2016
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.
by David (Egg Harbor Township, NJ) - 08/17/2016
Greens were rolling perfect!
by Matt - 08/15/2016
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!
by John (Wilmington, MA) - 08/12/2016
Despite heat of summer the course was in excellent shape.
by Lucia (Moorestown, NJ) - 08/12/2016
Not all holes were numbered
by Chase (Charleston, WV) - 08/11/2016
by John (Severna Park, MD) - 08/08/2016
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.
by Dave - 08/01/2016
Wonderful round today! Round played in 4:05 with no wait at the turn. Staff great! My wife needed an ace wrap and they were able to get us one thanks to Matt. Course in great shape. Second week in Myrtle and the first round under 5 hours. No overbooking front and back.
by Clifton (Apex, NC) - 07/30/2016
Course was immaculate. Greens were nice. Staff was great.
by Jeffrey (Pickerington, OH) - 07/17/2016
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.
by Donald (Johnson City, TN) - 07/10/2016
Scenery, customer service, homes around it and layout.
by Charles (Orange Park, FL) - 07/07/2016
Great place to play, we enjoyed the round.
by Brandon (New Eagle, PA) - 07/06/2016
I rest the set up of the Par 3's and short Par 4's with layup options.
by Dennis (Cheswick, PA) - 06/29/2016
Course was excellent, we enjoyed every hole.
by From Ohio - 06/27/2016
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.
by David - 06/27/2016
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.
by Paul - 06/25/2016
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!
by Jamie (North Ridgeville, OH) - 06/25/2016
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.
by John (Winterville, NC) - 06/24/2016
Nice course
by Tobin - 06/13/2016
Played 10 different courses on this trip and Grande Dunes was, by far, in the best condition. The greens were perfect, and the layout is fun. Be sure you play from the proper tees. Always a treat to play this course.
by Robert (Greensboro, NC) - 06/08/2016
Great course.
by Robert (Winnipeg, MB) - 05/27/2016
Course had some good water holes. Challenging. Fairways are wide yet par 3's were narrow. Good course.
by William (Leland, NC) - 05/26/2016
You should add bunkers to your course ratings. Overall Grande Dunes is one of the best layouts in the MB area. However the bunkers are poorly maintained and are in need of major reworking. The sand quality is terrible.
by Larry (Kalamazoo, MI) - 05/25/2016
Course was not well maintained.
by Rodney (Orleans, ON) - 05/20/2016
The course had a good layout and the experience was great.
by Dale (Felton, PA) - 05/11/2016
Sheer beauty....greens roll very true
by Joe (Marlton, NJ) - 05/10/2016
Greens fast and true. Clubhouse staff friendly and professional. Starter went over in depth about the course, knowledge needed during play. Course marshal professional and enjoyable to talk to.
by Charles (Strongsville, OH) - 05/07/2016
Played a couple times before. Great layout. Not in as great shape as in the past. Beverage cart service didn't arrive until 17.
by Ted - 05/06/2016
Very nice course. Staff is very accommodating. The layout & the views of the waterway are awesome. Lot's of houses around not really in play. The fairways were a little thin for my liking & pace of play was somewhat slow but still a must play course in MB.
by Ted - 05/05/2016
Staff very friendly. Fairways a little thin but overall a very nice tract.
by Jeremy (Wappingers Falls, NY) - 04/29/2016
All was good
by Gordon (Ottawa, ON) - 04/28/2016
I really enjoyed the course.
by Joseph (Columbia, SC) - 04/26/2016
Other than the course being excellent condition. The pace of play was slow. Waiting on every tee box and fairway to hit. Also I was a single and they didn't tell the marshals about me to pair me up until very last minute. Which forced me to let the 3 some know that I was playing with them. Who did not appreciate having someone paired up with them. All in all the course was in excellent condition, fairways well maintained. Greens superb and ran true.
by Al (Burlington, ON) - 04/18/2016
Great course. Excellent condition. Probably the quickest greens I have played in the area. Check in at Pro shop was slowed by their request to see voucher despite confirmation email stating not needed. Ranger annoyingly told our foursome to speed up on 15th hole despite no one behind us for at least a hole. Otherwise, great day!
by Stuart - 04/16/2016
by Beverly (Corpus Christi, TX) - 04/13/2016
The grill was the only disappointment. Slow service, most of the tables empty but not cleaned from prior occupants, food just so-so.
by Jim (Winston Salem, NC) - 04/12/2016
I liked the fact that I used the whole bag. The greens are large which led to some thought on club selection. The course was in very good condition. The layout was solid.
by Paul (Ludlow, MA) - 04/05/2016
Grest experience.
by Logan (Lexington, KY) - 04/02/2016
Best course I've played in Myrtle Beach. Each hole was more picturesque than the one before. Absolutely no throw away holes. Course in great shape, staff friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back.
by Joseph (Farmington Hills, MI) - 04/02/2016
The course was in great shape for the time of the year. Staff was very friendly. Made you feel comfortable. Layout was beautiful, especially the holes along the intracoastal waterway. Pace of play was good.
by Don (Richardson, TX) - 04/01/2016
Super slow play.
by Joe (Louisa, VA) - 04/01/2016
Superb greens!
by Alvin (Florida, NY) - 03/27/2016
Great practice facilities. Very scenic holes along the waterway If given a choice though i would rather not start at the 10th hole since the spectacular holes are in the back nine but that's nitpicking.
by Ivan (Abingdon, MD) - 03/23/2016
Great views along the Intracoastal ...
by David (Manchester, CT) - 03/22/2016
Greens were the best we played. Course was in great shape other than a couple of really wet holes. Because of the cold weather, there were only about six groups on the whole course, but they bunched us up on the same side, which made it play slower than it should have. But all in all, a good experience.
by Andrew (Holland, PA) - 03/21/2016
The staff was unreal. When I arrived as a single I overheard the group I was supposed to play with complaining that I was playing with them. I mentioned it upon checking in and it was immediately addressed. My highest compliments to your staff and the service provided. Made it very enjoyable.
by Paul - 03/19/2016
Play here course was in great shape staff outstanding.
by James (Toms River, NJ) - 03/16/2016
A must play course. Great staff excellent hospitality.
by Scott (York, SC) - 03/11/2016
Did t know scenery and course conditions as high a quality as this existed in the Myrtle Beach area. Easily the best golf experience I've enjoyed in this area. Rivals Pronghorn in Oregon for aesthetics and conditioning . Also, one of the best stocked pro shop I have ever seen. Well done, Grande Dunes!
by Daniel (Glenwood, NY) - 03/09/2016
Best course in NMB.
by Sheldon (Bel Air, MD) - 03/02/2016
Nice layout. Greens were in great shape.
by Courtney (Charlotte, NC) - 03/01/2016
The course is in beautiful shape. It's tough but manageable.
by Mike (Freedom, PA) - 03/01/2016
This is my 4th year playing this course. It is very challenging and very well taken care of.
by John (Macomb, MI) - 02/26/2016
Course was in great condition and was a wonderful test of golf. The staff was professional and the practice facility was first rate.
by Rob (Belmont, NC) - 02/02/2016
All around great course!
by John (Ephrata, PA) - 01/03/2016
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!!
by Daniel (Brooklyn, CT) - 12/09/2015
Excellent service and facility enjoyed the day! I cannot wait to go back.
by Tom (West Springfield, MA) - 12/07/2015
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.
by John (Bowie, MD) - 12/03/2015
The staff was the absolute best I have had the pleasure of meeting. Everything else was made. Better because of them.
by Gary - 11/23/2015
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.
