Dunes Golf & Beach Club

The Dunes Golf and Beach Club, one of the best-regarded golf courses in the Myrtle Beach area and the greater southeastern United States, carries a Golf Insider rating of 8.8. The categories in which the course distinguishes itself in particular include conditioning and the quality of the staff.

Opened in 1948 and designed by legendary golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr., The Dunes Golf and Beach Club is a classic golf course located in the heart of Myrtle Beach. With a proud membership and a storied history of hosting professional golf at the top levels, The Dunes commands respect from all who play it. Both GOLF Magazine and Golf Digest have placed it among their respective “Top 100 Golf Courses in America” lists, with such events as the Senior Tour Championship, the U.S. Women’s Open and PGA Tour Qualifying School finals as but a few of the tournaments contested over its 18 holes. In 2014, The Dunes will host the PGA Professional National Championship, from which the top 20 finishers will earn a spot in the 2014 PGA Championship.

At just under 7,200 yards from the back tees and smallish, push-up greens guarded by fearsome bunkers, The Dunes is one of the most challenging courses on the Grand Strand. and with one of the area’s iconic holes, it is one of the most recognizable. The 13th, a nearly 600-yard par five called “Waterloo” swings hard to the right around Lake Singleton, forcing players who want a chance at birdie to execute three consecutive high-quality shots, one of them a lengthy carry over a corner of the lake.

As a club with a significant membership, The Dunes Golf and Beach Club boasts understandably exquisite facilities. The grass driving range and practice putting and chipping/pitching greens—with a practice bunker as well—are excellent and the clubhouse, with dining areas that offer commanding views of the Atlantic Ocean and some of the best food on the Grand Strand, is a fantastic place to spend time unwinding before or after one’s appointed rounds.

Have been coming to MB for 29 years to play golf and this was my first expereince at Dunes Golf and Beach Club. A friend got my group a very good rate and it was more enjoyable at that rate. I have heard so much hype about Dunes and I guess I was just expecting more. Don't get me wrong. Great golf course in excellent shape. I guess it just did not have the WOW factor I expected. Definitely was on my Bucket List and now it has been ticked off. The greens were super fast, the fairways in good shape and all in all the course is very playable. More of an old style golf course with moderately generous tree lined fairways. I can see why it gets high reviews but I have played other courses in MB with more of a WOW factor to them. If you have not played Dunes, at least play it once and decide for yourself.

The course was beautiful. It's a difficult course but not as bad as I thought. No complaints.
by Tom (Long Beach, CA) - 07/08/2016
Favorite course on the Grand Strand.
by Robert (Island Lake South, AB) - 06/28/2016
Excellent Experience.
by Darren - 05/16/2016
Conditions were as close to perfect as we could ask. Fairways were lush, tightly mowed & we got some roll. Greens were perfect running about an 11. Great practice facility, and it was a joy playing a 4 hour round :) Yes it's pricey, but we felt it was well worth treating ourselves, & we plan to do it again on our next trip!!!!
by Paul (Charlotte, NC) - 04/05/2016
Best course in Myrtle Beach.
by Dawn (Buck Hill Falls, PA) - 01/14/2016
Smooth greens; beautiful hole design; well tended landscaping; pleasure to play; easy, quick unload and load.
by Robert (Laurence Harbor, NJ) - 11/30/2015
(Liked the) speed of greens.
by Kathy (Indio, CA) - 10/13/2015
We really enjoyed the course. Nice layout and the starter got us out a little early so we were ahead of several foursomes. Once we played through the foursome ahead of us, we had clear sailing and made it around in about 3-1/2 hours. Tees and greens were terrific. Greens are fast but run true. Lots of grounds crew out rolling the greens and maintaining the course after the recent rainstorms. Fairways were still carts on path and there was standing water in some areas; however, the course is quite playable. We'd definitely play again and would like to play it under drier conditions. One of the nicest rounds we played in Myrtle Beach. Restaurant overlooking the ocean had great lunch choices as well. The tuna melt was delicious.

Need GPS on carts.
by Doug (Bel Air, MD) - 08/16/2015
First time I got to play, Dunes. BEST COURSE EVER. Everyone was outstanding. Loved the dogleg par 5.
by Keir (Rittman, OH) - 07/12/2015
Greens roll great and and have softened after the reseeding. Fairways were unusually thin with some areas sparse of turf. Always an enjoyable classic layout.
by Tom (Long Beach, CA) - 07/03/2015
Great service as always. Greens recently punched.
by Dave (Louisville, KY) - 06/19/2015
Give yardages from tee boxes to trouble.
by Norman (North Myrtle Beach, SC) - 06/17/2015
Excellent condition with fast greens.
by Guy (Mississauga, ON) - 06/07/2015
Long delays because on lightning made the experience less than ideal.
by Phil - 06/02/2015
The third oldest golf course in the Myrtle Beach area. This is just a great layout. It reminds me of a plantation type golf course and is a fine layout offering very different type of golfing experience. I like this golf course a lot and enjoy the diversity of holes and required shot making requirements. As I recall it requires 5 left to right tee shots and 5 right to left tee shots so bring your A game. Just a grand old golf course that is fun and interesting to play.
by KJ (Teaneck, NJ) - 05/23/2015
A must-play course. Impressed in every way. Very challenging and yet fun to play. Top notch condition all around.
by Jerry - 03/22/2015
There is a reason this course is always rated #1 in Myrtle Beach. The staff treats you like they are glad you are there. The course is always in perfect condition. The layout is tops. Our group plays here every year and that will continue.
by Edward (Roanoke, VA) - 03/15/2015
by Martin (Myrtle Beach, SC) - 02/12/2015
Green were immaculate and rolled fast and smooth. The 13th is my favorite hole.
by Glenn (Bloomingdale, IL) - 12/08/2014
Simply top of the line...among the best. A traditional parkland course with raised green complexes, with very fast greens that take a little getting used to, and that can make for difficult approaches given their bunkering. All in our group always enjoy our experience here.
by Harry (Carlisle, PA) - 11/01/2014
Great time.
by John (Wakefield, MA) - 10/13/2014
Loved the course. Greens as slippery as a kitchen table and true.
by Menlo Park Mark - 10/09/2014
This is a classic RTJ Sr. course design with elevated undulating greens and cavernous bunkers surrounding them. The greens were in exceptional condition and rolled true and smooth. The course plays long due to the moisture in the conditioning with lots of mud-balls. The variety of hole layouts made this a memorable round
by William (Carlisle, PA) - 09/29/2014
Staff very good and friendly. Course very wet from recent rains and had to do cart paths only. This caused longer play and made course more difficult due to no roll. Greens also. Look forward to playing again sometime when weather conditions are better.
by Lyle (Breinigsville, PA) - 08/11/2014
by Scott (Morton, IL) - 06/06/2014
Too hard. Greens were too fast
by Ken (Ypsilanti, MI) - 05/23/2014
Course in excellent shape. Due to slow group ahead of us, staff apologized sincerely and authorized free beverage for us from the cart girl.
by Danny (Duncan, OK) - 05/23/2014
by David (Richmond, VA) - 04/30/2014
We have been coming to Myrtle for 29 years and this course was in the best shape ever
by Tom (Midlothian, VA) - 04/17/2014
Would like to have known that top dressing was being applied.
by Scupper - 03/14/2014
Played it Tues. 3/11. Course was in great condition and everyone from the bag drop to starter to grill were very nice. It was a real treat. Even got a great deal on merchandise in the Pro Shop.
by Peter (Salz-burg, OT) - 03/07/2014
Really great

Love the layout, very helpful staff. greens rolled true & fairways have blended grass so they didnt see completely dormant.

Don't miss this course if you plan to play in Myrtle Beach area. Great conditions. Every hole better than the next. 5 Stars.
by James (Manning, SC) - 09/16/2013

It was a great experience!
by Kiwan (Saratoga, CA) - 05/29/2013
by Daniel (Orange, CA) - 04/30/2013
The yardage was not marked clearly, no hole markers that we could see, we even made comments to each other about what hole is this, how far do you think we are etc. Nice course good layout some memorable holes.
by Shawn (Nepean, ON) - 04/02/2013
I'm not sure what to say, we enjoyed it ... the price might keep us away though I don't know that it's worth more than other places at half the price it's not double the golf course it's about the same.
by Joe (Ligonier, IN) - 03/26/2013
by Albert (Philadalphia, PA) - 03/26/2013
Beautiful course, immaculate condition. Staff were great. Due to some less than stellar play, we had been a bit slow. The attendant nicely asked us to pick it up. We did. He met us at the turn and thanked us. we really appreciated this. Grill is beautiful, overlooking the ocean, with very good food.

by Dennis (Belair, MD) - 02/18/2013
by Victor (Mississauga, ON) - 01/24/2013
The course was enjoyable. Should have a replay special. Was vacationing from Toronto, Canada. Thought that charging my group $50 per person was excessive. Will play another course with better specials. The course was nice however.
by Michael (Las Vegas, NV) - 01/23/2013
This is a must-play. For $60 you will never get a better deal. Course condition superior and the layout is fantastic. Very challenging course, learned ball doesn't fly as far at sea level.
by Ed (Buck Hill Falls, PA) - 01/23/2013
Very beautiful round of golf.
by Gary (Mississauga, ON) - 01/16/2013
A lot for replay!! .. Considering Legends were offering free replays.
by Arthur (Woodbridge, VA) - 01/16/2013
by Gary (Merrick, NY) - 11/19/2012
Great course.
by Gary (Greensburg, PA) - 11/15/2012

Good round.
by James (Walpole, MA) - 10/18/2012
Another great place to play. Everyone professional from start to finish. Cecelia on the refreshment cart was awesome. She was always smiling..
by Ed (Placida, FL) - 10/09/2012
Thought lunch prices were out of line.
by Mark (Tampa, FL) - 10/01/2012
This course has been rated the #1 course in Myrtle Beach. The layout is excellent and the par 5 13th hole is a bear. The greens were not in very good condition. You could see where they might have had some kind of fungus. For $122 it could have been better.
by Chalmers (Charleston, SC) - 09/26/2012
by Richard - 09/24/2012
Deserves its place as one of the premier courses on the Beach. Outstanding conditions and a true test of every part of your game. No. 13 is a great golf hole, and the whole course is strong. A little stuffy and maybe over-priced, but still a very nice golf experience.
by Martin (Quebec City, Quebec) - 09/17/2012
We'd like to have known the condition of the greens.
by Jim (Port Colborne, ON) - 09/17/2012

by Shawn (Las Vegas, NV) - 09/15/2012
Amazing course. Great staff and facility. We will be back.
by Theodore (Wilmington, DE) - 09/09/2012
Excellent design. Par 5 13th is one of the best holes I've ever played.
by Chuck (Asheville, NC) - 08/30/2012
Cart staff not quite together with things when showed up. Was busy though. Pro shop very good. Course in great shape. Can't wait to play again. Grill was unorganized. Had to deliver our orders out on course. And it was cold food. Overall super experience. Course is awesome.
by Joseph (Henderson, NV) - 08/28/2012
Course was a bit wet due to rain but really enjoyed the round. Staff was fantastic!
by James (Dublin, OH) - 08/21/2012
The Dunes was excellent. Traditional layout, beautiful, established. plenty of sand and water on the course. Elevated greens - take an extra club on every approach. The greens were in excellent shape in mid-August. They rolled true, but were a bit slower than my home course.
by Bryan (Denver, NC) - 08/18/2012
Starter stated that pace of play was the most important thing to remember. The course allowed a member who was also an injured ex-NFL player and guest to ruin a good day. The course wouldn't do anything to help speed up the round and the group wouldn't allow other to play through ... they were very rude. We are all members of a club and our clubs would not allow this type of behavior or pace of play. We paid a lot to play this course and it was probably one of the best conditioned courses that I've played. Too bad they allowed this to mess up what could have been a great day.
by Robert (New Milford, NJ) - 08/16/2012
by Jesse (Lancaster, PA) - 08/01/2012
Awesome course! One of my top 3 of all time and it was not even in season! Greens rolled nice and fairways like carpet. Tee boxes were pretty nice. Immaculate mowing job. 13 was probably the most challenging hole and we even saw an alligator in water. We are used to playing at Bayside in Ocean City, MD area so the quality was a match for us and what we are used to. I can't wait to play there again.
by Doug (Raleigh, NC) - 07/31/2012
Great course, loved the design. (Need) more drinking water on the course.
by Rick (Saint Matthews, SC) - 07/30/2012
Most helpful and services were excellent ... friendly ... would love to play again ... tough course.
by Mark (Raleigh, NC) - 07/26/2012
Great vistas, interesting holes, enjoyed playing an older style beach course, no gimmick holes. Rough was cleared well. Aesthetically pleasing.
by M (Marietta, GA) - 07/20/2012
Nice course, but lot of blind shots. No hole layout provided. A little pricey considering other nice courses around. It was still very enjoyable.
by Brad (South Jordan, UT) - 07/08/2012
Fair test. Good variety of holes. Course was very busy. However pace of play was 4 hours. Furnished range balls. Enjoyed the experience.
by Chris (Hickory, NC) - 07/07/2012
by Mark (Conover, NC) - 07/05/2012
Wish I would have bought yardage book but overall had a great experience.
by Dave (Westerville, OH) - 07/05/2012
Very good.
by David (Grosse Pointe, MI) - 06/29/2012
As good as expected.
by Kevin (North Billerica, MA) - 06/23/2012
The layout was a lot of fun. Challenging yet fair.
by David (Jeffersonville, IN) - 06/23/2012
Don't let members feel like they own the place. Our foursome was constantly waiting for a single who was playing multiple balls. That is unacceptable and very poor etiquette. When we made the turn and mentioned to the starter all he said was that he was a member. Then it got worse on the back side. He appeared to be getting a lesson. Again holding up our foursome. A single should never hold anyone up. When mentioned to another worker and were told the single does this every morning.
by Geoff (Houston, TX) - 06/01/2012
Loved the views.

by Andy (Virginia Beach, VA) - 05/16/2012
Pro shop is a little snooty towards non-members. Course was in great condition and I like the layout very much. Had a nice time in the grill afterwards - Ben the bartender was very nice.
