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.

Course was well maintained, tees, fairways and greens were in excellent shape.

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.
While many courses use that locale in their address, only six courses fall within the actual city limits. These courses, four of which were built prior to 1972, alone offer a range both in style and feel that would provide a worthy week of golf.

In the final portion of the five-part series, we look at the best Myrtle Beach-area courses to be built during the 2000s. Each of the three selections provided their own special touch to a place that was already a golf spectacle.
