Grande Dunes Resort Club
Playing the Resort Club at Grande Dunes for the first time, you will understand why this Roger Rulewich design was named National Golf Course of the Year in 2009 by the National Golf Course Owners Association. The winner of The Sun News Best of the Beach “Best Golf Course” from 2001-2007, the Resort Club has hosted three South Carolina Opens, two John Deere World Championships and will host the prestigious PGA Club Professionals Championship in 2014.
Playing from 122 to 220 yards, the par 3 14th is Grande Dunes’ signature hole that borders the Intracoastal Waterway. With the teeing ground on a high bluff overlooking the wide but narrow green, there is not a more picturesque hole in Myrtle Beach. Many times players get entranced by the surrounding beauty so pars are hard to come by. The par 4 9th hole has equally stunning views of the Intracoastal Waterway and the Grande Dunes Marina. Come play the course PGA Magazine calls “one of the great golf clubs of the world.”

My favorite it Myrtle Beach, Tidewater is a close second though. Love the 14th and 15th holes. Greens rolled good, we had an early tee time.
NobleDate Played: 10/07/2020
Nice course. But, similar layout on many of the holes
ScottDate Played: 08/26/2020

WilliamDate Played: 06/04/2020
Grande Dunes is our favorite Myrtle Beach course. It is centrally located, a very good design and well maintained. The course drains well. The practice facilities are very good. We like the staff as well.

I love playing at the Grande Dunes Resort Club. The greens are in fair to good shape and everything else is as expected.
StephenDate Played: 05/25/2020
Greens were in really good shape on holes 10-18. Running at about an 11. Front nine greens (our back nine) were not running as true, but still good. Was disappointed that I paid an extra $5 for the lunch and beverage package and when I checked in at the clubhouse, they said they did not offer such a package.
NicholasDate Played: 05/23/2020
Good layout with below average conditions for a high end resort course
ShannonDate Played: 05/20/2020
Great course with a lot of challenges. I would definitely play it again.
ChrisDate Played: 05/19/2020
Was an alright course. As a higher handicap, was not overly challenging. Course was in great condition and the staff was excellent.
DavidDate Played: 05/16/2020
Facilities and course are very nice but you pay for that. Complimentary range balls. Greens were very fast and true. Too many house around the course for my liking.
SteveDate Played: 05/15/2020
We had a great time finishing up our trip at the Grande Dunes. The course was challenging but fair and our group had a great time.

Played up due to cold and wind. We had a wonderful day. The course was in great shape, the staff went out if their way to make sure we had a good day, and the views alone were with the trip. There was only one odd thing, the 2 carts GPS units were as much as 20 yds different at times.
LarryDate Played: 11/19/2019
Great course, friendly professional staff.
JoeDate Played: 11/11/2019
Nice course, starting to show its signs of disrepair especially in traps n cart paths.
TommyDate Played: 11/05/2019
I have played this course many times in my travels to Myrtle Beach for golf- this is a constant favorite of mine. I have played it in every weather condition and it is always in great shape. The staff is great, it has a good clubhouse and not overpriced. I also think it’s a visually stunning course to play, including the surrounding homes and marina. Beautiful area. I would highly recommend this to any golfer to play when in the area.
DavidDate Played: 10/25/2019
The light right above the main entrance needs to be cleaned. The snack bar area was really small and really loud. There was 2 different grasses growing on the greens, and they didn't roll very smoothly. The GPS on the carts worked well and there was a nice variety of holes.
CraigDate Played: 10/17/2019
Thank you Grande Dunes Resort Club for being an awesome place to play! They had numerous big trips going through and yet the pace of play was still good enough to get us finished in daylight! The only negative was super minor to me and that was the greens...they were not rolling true to the top dressing on them which is fine...I understand the need to keep up on the maintenance. We still had a great time there and also shot my low round of our trip there...we will return!!!
KenDate Played: 10/05/2019
Rated as our number 2 behind Pawleys. Wanted to have a beer at the end of play but clubhouse was closed on a Saturday night?

JohnDate Played: 07/31/2019
Another course we've played years ago everything-- was in good shape very nice day
MattDate Played: 07/31/2019
I played Grande Dunes on 7/31/2019. The people and customer service was terrific. The Greens were awful. They looked as if they had not been cut in a week and rolled like someone raked the bermuda. Having lived and played college golf in Florida, I know what bermuda greens are supposed to look like and roll. I always measure a course by the green conditions first and Grande Dunes has failed. Absolutely not worth the $80 I paid. I should have played The Dunes Club or Caledonia.

JeffDate Played: 06/21/2019
I really like this course. The greens were good but I can’t say they were great. Staff was great all around
DavidDate Played: 06/21/2019
Course was great, but we were not made aware that they did split tee times and we were ahead of our time because we were a twosome and we would have been extremely backed up on back nine. We were given a rain-check, but i don't plan on being back in that area any time soon, so i spent $160 for 9 holes or I could have spend my whole vacation day trying to play the back nine
MarkDate Played: 06/20/2019
Great. Wish greens were not punched but sand dressing seem to help vs other courses that did not
PhillipDate Played: 06/13/2019

DawnDate Played: 05/10/2019
Course was not in good shape. Several of the greens had sections cut out and all the greens had recently been top dressed. Had we known this ahead of time we would have spent our money elsewhere.

The course was in great condition and I played well
PaulDate Played: 10/20/2018
The course was in excellent condition. Having a flyover of each hole and GPS in the cart was great. Tee selection advice on the scorecard was sound. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Starters were a bit hard to find at times ... they should try to stay on post. It was great overall.
SalvatoreDate Played: 09/30/2018
Course was in good shape considering they just had a major hurricane and substantial rain the day before

Played early Sunday. Should have know better because tee times were wide open. Several greens had no grass on them at all. 1 green was severely damage by kids with golf cart. Was not told any of this by starter or pro shop. Certainly not worth the $63 I paid.

ShaunDate Played: 06/29/2018
Was a phenomenal experience pleasantly surprised with the course, was in pristine condition will play it every time I come back to Myrtle Beach was disappointed although that there was no snack cart

DavidDate Played: 04/30/2018
Excellent and challenging Rulewich design, but the greens were in terrible condition. Several greens had massive dead areas along with severe bumps. Overheard other golfers saying they were the worst greens they ever played, and we agreed. Staff said they had a bad winter, but in my 40+ years of golfing in the northeast I've never seen greens this bad.
DavidDate Played: 04/19/2018
First time playing course and loved it, will definitely be back
JohnDate Played: 04/03/2018
The Grande Dunes was fantastic! The starter was friendly as were the bag drop personnel! The course was in immaculate shape considering it was the first week of April. We loved playing the course and plan on playing it again next year.

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.

J.Date Played: 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.
AllenDate Played: 12/07/2016
I would play this course again.

AdrianDate Played: 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.
JohnDate Played: 09/22/2016
Wow...fast 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!!

DustyDate Played: 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.

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.
DaveDate Played: 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.

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.
DavidDate Played: 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.
PaulDate Played: 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!
JamieDate Played: 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.
TobinDate Played: 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.

Course had some good water holes. Challenging. Fairways are wide yet par 3's were narrow. Good course.

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.

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.
AlDate Played: 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!

The grill was the only disappointment. Slow service, most of the tables empty but not cleaned from prior occupants, food just so-so.

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.

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.

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.
IvanDate Played: 03/23/2016
Great views along the Intracoastal ...
DavidDate Played: 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.
AndrewDate Played: 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.

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!

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!!

JoanDate Played: 11/01/2015
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.
PatriciaDate Played: 10/23/2015
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.
AlbertDate Played: 10/23/2015
What I was most disappointed in our golf experience - the players' tee times were bunched together and we waited on every hole. We had a threesome and expected to play with only our group for an enjoyable round of golf. At the last minute we were told a fourth would be joining us. We should have been asked if we minded having a player added to our group.

PatriciaDate Played: 10/16/2015

I didn't get his name but it was an older gentleman from Michigan, I guess the GM was really an excellent customer service example for any company. His attitude and personality made me a repeat customer before I ever hit the first ball. He is a true asset to this company and course.

RayDate Played: 06/11/2015
Course was so slow that I had to leave on the 16th hole to avoid playing over a 5 and 1/2 half hour round. The course needs marshaling.
SteveDate Played: 06/04/2015
Nice course but not sure its worth the extra $$ associated with it.
TerryDate Played: 06/01/2015
Course was fine. The only problem were a foursome stopped on the turn and took extra time and slowed everyone up by 30 mins. Round very slow 5.3 hrs.
MarkDate Played: 05/30/2015
For a resort course free range balls should be available . Disappointed that the carts didn't have gps. Loved the course and would definitely recommend it.
MichaelDate Played: 05/27/2015
Dislike the 5 hour round. Had to wait at every tee box and every 2nd/ 3rd shot.
BradDate Played: 05/11/2015
For the price of the course, I would have expected it to be in better condition. Many bare/brown spots, and the greens VERY slow. Everyone in our group had problems with the pace. There were no carts available upon arrival, but an attendant did bring one to me while on the range (which was very nice). I had also called earlier for Wi-Fi access for my wife to use while I played, and while I was informed there was access, upon arrival discovered the Wi-Fi had been discontinued. Also, while having lunch on the patio, the ground crew decided to start fertilizing/weed spray the flowers/plants in front of the patio, and we moved inside to avoid the smell. I needed to shower after the round, and all the pro shop staff had departed for the day, and no towels available. I had to use the paper towels from the bathroom to dry off. During the round, never saw a marshal, and had to wait on most shots for the group in front. It would be a good course for an outing with the wide fairways, and as a first round of a golf trip - provided the attention to detail improves.
RobertDate Played: 04/11/2015
Fairways in great shape, greens in great shape.
RandyDate Played: 04/09/2015

PaulDate Played: 03/21/2015
Sorry to see that Grande Dunes continues to cut amenities. When I first started playing this course they gave you a bottle of water and had top rate GPS and gave you complimentary warm up balls. Then they cut out the bottle of water, ok no big deal. Then they cut out the GPS and replaced with a Samsung tablet GPS that repeats the same annoying commercial. But now an $80 round with no warm up balls. Really! I play Barefoot for $75 and get complimentary balls. I play Tidewater for $59 and get warm up balls. Both courses equal to or better than Grande Dunes. Wake up Grande Dunes, don't nickle and dime your customers. I've been a loyal customer but I won't be back if your premium price doesn't include some warm up balls.

TimothyDate Played: 03/12/2015
This was our second round this winter at Grande Dunes and it's still one of my favorites. The course is in the best shape of all the 14 we have played this winter. No complaints except for the fact that we got one of the afternoon low rates and the course was packed and it took almost 5 hours to play which wears on you. The rangers were out but not much could be done because of the time of day and amount of play. It's my FAVORITE course on the Grand Strand even on a slow day. I will return. Greens were in great shape, friendly staff and altogether a nice time.

TimothyDate Played: 01/23/2015
We played on a 60 degree day and had a great time. This is a favorite of mine after playing it for the first time. The course is a bit forgiving in most places but you can find trouble if your straying. LIGHTNING fast greens, the way it should be on a good course. I had a tough time reading the greens and missed my 4 foot birdie but on the No. 1 handicap hole but that's my mistake. I will return. No flaws at all at this course.
DennisDate Played: 01/01/2015

Absolutely was not impressed with being told to hurry up and miss putting on then next few holes. There was no one behind us or in front. As we started with hole 10, by the end of this 9 holes, we were told to miss hole #1, which could be done at the end. When finished, 2 of the 4 golfers agreed to continue to hole #1, BUT were then told that they would have to wait for a group of 12 golfers to tee off. We too paid for a full round of golf .. totally unacceptable and it will not be a chosen golf course again. The original booking was changed from Thursday to Tuesday because of it being busy on Thursday. I do believe that all 4 golfers maintained an average playing time.

Great course. My 12 year old daughter and I played here and found the course very enjoyable and in great shape. Very quick greens, and have seen other reviews talk about pace of play. Did see ranger a few times but we kept up so had no issues, but if you play slow I could see them trying to get you to hustle along.
BrianDate Played: 04/02/2014
Tees, Fairways, & Greens are as good as advertised. Pro Shop offered as much as any other course. Will mark this course off my bucket list, but have no desire to ever return. Absolutely the worst staff I've witnessed since I began playing the game of golf. While my group never complained about the slow play in front of us, we were harassed and pressured by staff to push them. When the pace picked up (group ahead picked up and left) and we could finally relax, our unfriendly ranger informed us how we would have to forfeit 2 holes if we didn't move on (following group hadn't even left the green from the prior hole as we were putting). If you want to be harassed and feel like you've done burn outs on the greens at Augusta, this is the place for you. If you want to have fun and enjoy a round, I'd suggest any of the multiple courses available at Myrtle Beach.
RickDate Played: 01/03/2014
Our group of 20 players played Grande Dunes for the first time in May of 2013 and it was the #1 experience for our annual 1 week golf getaway. The entire day was first rate and our group was welcomed and treated as important customers from the moment we arrived. The course was an absolute treat to play and the conditions were superb. The layout and scenic views made for a memorable day and the staff was eager to set-up an afternoon replay! Grande Dunes is back on our play list for the 2014 big event in April and simply can't wait to repeat the experience.

Our final round was played at Grande Dunes resort which was our first time playing this track. The course was in outstanding shape from tees to greens and was a very tough challenge. Staff were helpful and friendly and made our round a most enjoyable one. Back nine was a little tougher with some very picturesque holes along the waterway. We are planning to play again next year on our annual golf trip and would recommend this to anyone looking for a quality course and a tough challenge !
VincentDate Played: 09/18/2013
Nice course, wide fairways. Pretty straight. Not many dog legs. Greens were great, rolled true and pretty quick. Was told they were 10.5 on stemp. 7 holes on inter coastal just ok, nothing spectacular. Would play again!

My wife & I played this course today with great expectations. This is a very impressive track that is very eye appealing and great fun to play. The greens were punched 10 days ago, but still ran fairly true. The tee boxes were in great shape, fairways were in great shape. Range balls were provided and the practice facilities are the best I've seen in Myrtle Beach so far. Greens in regulation usually equate to low scores, not on this course, the greens are huge. It is important to be under the hole here putting uphill. If I have any complaints about this course is that it sounds like a freeway running thru the center of the course. Other than that, a great golfing experience. Great reuben sandwich in the clubhouse. Would definately recommend this course.

KevinDate Played: 03/15/2013
Layout was fantastic. Guys in Pro-shop were excellent, waited for us to finish so we could purchase shirts. Fairways seemed thin and spotty. Greens were very good would have been excellent but we played late in the day. Foursome in front of us was slow, we drove up to 17 tee and they were still on the tee no one else on the hole. Did not see a ranger all day on the course. Came a day earlier to see if we could get on, lady in Pro-shop said no full-up, asked if we could practice, she said $20.00. That is okay but it seems she was counting down the register and we were putting her out, kind of a bad taste, if we did not have a tee-time for the next day I don't know if we would have come back. The two guys in the Pro shop the next night made up for it. With that said pracice facilities top notch. I would definately play there again when in town and I would highly recommend Grande Dunes to anyone who asked.
TomDate Played: 03/13/2013
Wonderful course. Look forward to playing again.
DennisDate Played: 03/13/2013
The is course was OK. Dont know why everyone raves about it. The starter had zero personality and seemed irritated to be working. The round took 5 hrs and 15 mins, we were waiting on just about every shot. There were no rangers to be seen on the course trying to regulate the pace of play. The tees were in good shape, the fairways were quite tight as far as being able to hit fairway woods off them. The greens were fast but at least consistent. Would not even consider playing this course again with so many other courses to play. Would recommend playing many other courses such as Kings North and World Tour and Pawleys Plantation to name a few before Grand Dunes resort.
BobDate Played: 03/07/2013

BrianDate Played: 01/30/2013
I am about a 13-15 handicap and played the white tees (there's 6, count them 6! different tees to pick from). The Resort course has arguably the perfect combination of bunkers, green sizes, fairway widths, water holes, and overall variety. I've played 'tighter' courses, but this one is still no place to spray your drives. If you can keep it in play off the tee, you'll be in great shape the whole day (like always I suppose...). Also, the homes, Intracoastal Waterway, and scenery are really quite amazing. As of 1/30/13, the greens are green (but FAST!), and the fairways are green and very well groomed. The rough is still dormant and they're spraying for weeds on the front nine which will make you have to do cart path on that nine. Otherwise, complimentary range balls, practice green and 2 chipping areas makes this spot a 10 out of 10!
DaveDate Played: 12/10/2012
A beautiful, well maintained course we will play again. Like other courses though, the pin placements were too hard for the speed for amateur golfers. $2.25 for a coffee? Grill prices are too high at all the courses we played.

JamesDate Played: 11/11/2012
We enjoyed the entire Grande Dunes experience. The price of $92.00 per golfer, which was an appreciated discount, is a bit high compared to other courses we played. For example, The Tradition (which in our opinion is a similar high quality course) charged $62.00 per golfer. As much as I would enjoy playing the Grande Dunes again, it is not in our budget at that price. If we do play again, I will try to schedule a mid to late morning tee time, rather than a 12:50 p.m. or later fall tee time, so that we are not rushing to complete all 18 holes.

Did not have a layout of the course on the scorecard nor at the tee box.
DavidDate Played: 10/07/2012
Kind of a disappointment. Really didn't like the layout. Not golfer friendly at all. Too much walking. The cart paths were too far from the greens. If you were less than 100 yards out you either have to drive around and walk back or walk up to your ball and back then drive around to putt. There was a lot of nice architecture but it was irrelevant to the game. It felt like it was designed by an architect without input from a golfer. The starter didn't really seem to care to explain the course. He wasn't much help.
FrancisDate Played: 09/19/2012
I thought the Grande Dunes was outstanding. The entire course greens, fairways and tees were in excellent shape. I would rate the course in my top five in the Myrtle Beach area along with Caledonia, Love Course and Thistle. The par 3 on the back overlooking the Waterway was outstanding.
PhilDate Played: 09/18/2012
Course was in great condition with very scenic views. Staff was very nice and professional. Can't say there was anything that I would have liked to have known in advance.
RichardDate Played: 09/18/2012
Course and greens were in excellent shape. Course views were beautiful.
ChrisDate Played: 09/17/2012
Very nice course, nice greens, challenging yet fair, nicest staff of any Myrtle course we have played and we have played all the good courses from central Myrtle to lower NC.
LindaDate Played: 09/17/2012
One of my favorite courses since it was added to Prime Times.
SarahDate Played: 09/15/2012
A 5-hour round that was overpriced and overrated. Played before with the same feeling. For the price you should have many more yard markers, 150 poles and even GPS.
AmyDate Played: 09/14/2012
Excellent ranges. Maintained excellent pace of play.
WilliamDate Played: 09/11/2012
Great course, Great Time.
BobDate Played: 09/07/2012
Great scenic track. Greens were only 2 weeks old and very quick. One of my new favorite tracks.
LyndellDate Played: 07/07/2012
I enjoyed the course very much. The starter was very informative, helpful. I look forward to playing the course again, it is a good test, but I felt fair.
MotiDate Played: 07/01/2012
We were the last to play on the course. The greenskeepers were digging up the greens as soon as we left. This was for the planned closure and restoration. But all in all, the course was in good condition and it was a pleasure to play. We will surely return in the future.
EddieDate Played: 06/26/2012
The greens were the best of the 3 courses we played. Staff was great, Mike was our starter and we enjoyed him. The course is a great challenge of golf but fair. There are no push over holes.
DougDate Played: 06/25/2012
Awesome course and tremendous service experience. A definite must-play course in Myrtle Beach. Beautiful views. Greens were fast and true. There were workers all over the place keeping it manicured. This course had some of the toughest par 5's. Played from black tees and at 7200 yards it is everything you want in a course.
BillDate Played: 06/24/2012
Very good course even though it was very windy and we got rained on late in the round. Everyone was extremely nice. Would definitely play again.
VictorDate Played: 06/23/2012
Superior, beautiful surroundings, well managed course - like playing off a carpet, best course we have played in Myrtle Beach.

Very nice course. Fairly long.
JosephDate Played: 06/07/2012
Great course, challenging but fair. Having GPS in the carts was great for someone who hasn't played course before. Everyone was friendly and eager to help from start to finish. Will play course again this week. Great rate on MBN also.

Great course; the scenery is exquisite, the course is in superb shape, great experience ... thanks.
RobertDate Played: 05/10/2012
Very interesting course in excellent condition. The greens were exceptional. The course was well designed with a variety of challenging holes. I would highly recommend this course for better golfers.
DavidDate Played: 05/09/2012
There was little that I liked about this course. The most frustrating thing was how they ran their speedy golf. We were the first group off the front at 8:00 a.m. We were a foursome and played the first 9 holes in 1 hour and 55 minutes. There were still groups going off the back 9 when we came through. It took us over 2 and a half hours to play the back 9. There were 4 groups on one hole at one point. When we called to discuss this with someone in the pro shop we were treated rudely. They explained that we were waiting because we played too fast??!!. I have never heard that before. As the first group off, are you not supposed to set the pace for the rest of the day for the golf course. They need to end their tee times in the back at 2 hours after the start so people on the front can work in. I know they will not do this as they cannot then get as many golfers in the course, which means less money. Beyond that I felt the condition of the course, specifically the fairways was poor. You could not tell the difference between the fairway and the rough. The greens were the only good thing about the course. They were in decent shape. I would not recommend this course to anyone.
MarkDate Played: 05/08/2012
Very enjoyable experience. We always like playing there.
MichaelDate Played: 05/03/2012
9th hole was great. I loved the water. Very nice course.
BrysonDate Played: 04/30/2012
When we arrived it was very disorganized at the bag drop. They load your bags on to a cart with 8 or 10 more bags depends on how many show up to drop off their clubs. Once loaded up they drive them about a hundred feet then unloaded them. Once we check in it was very disorganized to get our clubs loaded onto our carts. They only loaded one set then went onto other golfers. The starter then came over looking for us to head to the tee box. I told him that we were having difficultly in getting them loaded and he did not help either. The course was great but very frustrating at the bag drop and club load up area.
BillDate Played: 04/23/2012
The best golf experience in Myrtle.
CharlesDate Played: 04/16/2012
Very challenging, yet fair. Open fairways, with plenty of hazards. Delighted to birdie #2 and #17, and my wife birdied #1. Never felt rushed - enjoyed the scenery and great golf.
ThomasDate Played: 04/15/2012
Whatever you do, don't golf here in November. Everything had just been aerated in November and all fairways were soaked. Took almost an hour after our tee time to get sent out.
PatrickDate Played: 04/13/2012
Greens rolled great.
PaulDate Played: 04/11/2012
Everyone was very friendly from the bag drop on. Enjoyed the course layout, the greens were smooth and had good speed, and would hold a well-played shot. Although I didn't have may best game, the course was very fair while also challenging. The fact that we were paired with another couple who had similar game made the round that much more enjoyable. Staff in the clubhouse, and in particular in the grill, were extremely friendly and accommodating. Our meal after the round was excellent and very reasonably priced. Although we play many courses in the Myrtle Beach area, we will be back.
PaulDate Played: 03/24/2012
One of my favorites in Myrtle Beach. I love the practice area and clubhouse, they are both first-class. The course is both fun and challenging. The course was in great shape, the only disappointment was the greens being slow.
PaulDate Played: 03/08/2012
Members Course was what we expected.
TerryDate Played: 02/12/2012
Our list always has Grande Dunes on it. Excellent as soon as you cross the bridge. The Resort course is the more difficult of the two. Play the correct tees that suits your handicap. Course conditions, as always, were excellent, bentgrass greens, range, putting and chipping greens, GPS in carts, free water bottles in cart, etc. etc. The Members course is easier from tee to green with fast sloping greens as its defense. Played both rounds in 4 hrs., had them both to ourselves. You get what you pay for, and based on that Grande Dunes is a steal! Highly recommended.
BrianDate Played: 01/17/2012
Could not get a beer or food after round at only 2 p.m., bar closed ... winter??

PhilDate Played: 11/23/2011
Had a shotgun start due to frost but staff handled it well, course was in excellent condition.
DeannaDate Played: 11/15/2011
The practice range and putting greens are nice. I don't think it's quite worth the price charged in comparison with some of the other courses.
GregDate Played: 11/13/2011
Don't like the fact that they use double tees. We had the first tee time and took our time on the front. We made the turn and still had to wait 15 min. to tee off. Then the back took us 2 hrs. 30 min.
ArtMBGolfDate Played: 11/09/2011
Range balls, cart GPS and a bottle of water were provided. Starters used speakers to call groups to the 1 and 10 tees. That helps round up players and provides a feel for how close your tee time is. The cart GPS provides yardage to the pin position of the day, green contours, food ordering, etc. Fairways were good, except for the fairways that were freshly verticut for overseeding as we played. The bent greens are not nearly as good as they have been in the past. Roots are shallow, are slow to recover from aeration, bumpy and have bermuda spots. The greens won't ruin the day, but they are not as good as you would expect for the premium cost. It's time for new greens. I like the choices that the large greens provide and the wide fairways that allow playing position or just letting it rip. When you play the proper tees here, there are 5-6 holes where you can fly it to downslopes in the fairway, to propel you to bonus yards. The best holes are 8, 9, 10, 14, 15, but not just because of the waterway. This is a tour style course with waterway views.
AdrianDate Played: 11/05/2011
Overall, a great course (very long). Layout was great. Course had all the amenities. For some reason, I expect more for the price. One of our carts died around hole 15.
JimDate Played: 11/03/2011
Great course. One problem was that several carts breaking down because they were not charged.

The Grande Dunes will always be my favorite course in Myrtle Beach. Great hospitality from check-in to the gentleman who wipes your clubs down at the end of the round. Lush fairways and smooth bentgrass greens. Rained on for 2 holes and the course drained perfectly.

Greens had been aereated recently which we were not aware of, very slow. We always like the course and staff.
DougDate Played: 07/26/2011

LarryDate Played: 05/28/2011
Excellent condition, combined with great setting for golf, especially the back nine.
MarkDate Played: 05/20/2011
While we played in 4.5 hrs, we waited on every hole, course was packed. Maybe tee times need to be spaced out a little more. Some greens has burned out patches. Didn't effect play but visually disturbing. Great layout, tough first time around ... I'll be back!
DaveDate Played: 05/19/2011
The greens were the best I have played on this year.
JonathanDate Played: 05/12/2011

JimDate Played: 04/02/2011
For the money, they need to put more into the course. The fairways, greens, and tee boxes were like concrete, and the rough and landscaping were in poor shape. This high-end course was in the worst condition of all 4 courses we played. Average at best. Wouldn't come back for 1/2 price.

ChrisDate Played: 03/15/2011
Course was OK, better than most. I was expecting better with all the hype. Good condition and true rolling greens. I do not think the designer used the waterway properly in his layout. You can only see the waterway on the Par 3 14th. The rest of the waterway holes the view is obstructed and you have to go look for the waterway. Don't think I will play it again. Oh, the starter guy gave us this 20-min. speech before we teed off; it started sounding like bla, bla, bla. By the time he finished we were late teeing off, and I had no clue what he said for the first 17 min. of his spew.
SteveDate Played: 03/03/2011

SeanDate Played: 08/16/2010
The course had my favorite layout among the others I had played on my trip.
ThomasDate Played: 08/09/2010
One of best par 3s I have seen - it is the one on the waterway and takes all of your skill to get the ball there, with the water the wind and the pin placement. Just a great hole to play. This is one nice course to play if you love the game.
JamesDate Played: 08/01/2010
This was one of the best golfing experiences I have had in several years. I would recommend this course to everyone back home who comes to Myrtle to golf.
RichardDate Played: 06/18/2010
Good Layout, fairways were tight lies and had a few too many dead spots in fairways.
KirkDate Played: 05/02/2010
Played April 27th and April 28th. Conditions on the 27th were extremely windy. Great layout, very forgiving off the tees when played from the right ones. Fairways were firm and fast. Greens were hard but very smooth. Many shots will run through the green and off when not landed in the right place. Greens putt fast and true with many breaks and undulations. Par threes were challenging (especially in the wind). If you have GPS bring one. Highly recommend playing this course.
SyDate Played: 04/26/2010
We've been playing Grande Dunes now for 5 yrs. When we play other courses after this one, it's a big letdown. You can't beat the Dunes.
LarryDate Played: 04/23/2010
Loved the course and people. Would definitely go again. The only negative was that we started off on the back nine and when we came around, we were behind 3 groups which added about 30 minutes to the play on the front nine.
TerryDate Played: 04/21/2010
Need to announce the group on deck, not just the one on the tee.
JimDate Played: 04/18/2010
Great course, tough, in top condition. Some of the marshalls need some training in course etiquette. One of our foursomes was harassed for being slow when they had no one behind them. That foursome finished in just over 4 hrs. These are events that keep a group of 28 players from coming back.

Service amongst the clubhouse and starters was outstanding. Great facility and well run. Course was laid out nicely, but the February conditions were 'average' at best and 'below' compared to other courses we played - fairways were thin, tee boxes okay, and greens average.

I could play Grande Dunes all week. What a class operation! We enjoyed a very reasonable breakfast in the grill, excellent range, we were surprised to find out we could leave the paths! Great drainage, awesome layout, a few holes play along the Intracoastal, great variety of holes and tees to play. Easily in the top 5 in M.B. in my humble opinion! Go play Grande Dunes!

Was not told by your golf coordinator that the greens were aerified. I found out later that Grande Dunes did not tell your golf coordinator about the condition of the greens as well as the fairways. This was not worth the money at all. Wish I wouldn't have traveled the twenty-five miles to go there.
ChristopherDate Played: 08/30/2009
Course that plays even longer than the yardage on the scorecard with its elevated greens and the wind off the Intracoastal. The players assistant on 8/27/09 was not very friendly and quite arrogant about the difficulty of the course. Verti-cutting on greens this large makes two-putting impossible!

Nice, well-maintained course. Starter and grounds staff were not particularly polite or accommodating.

Commented on December 15, 2008: With a strong right to left ocean breeze this one (#14) will make you take a deep breath. In the summer when I played it there were a couple of boats in the Intracoastal (bikinis were part of the crew) waving and us on the tee. You'll love this hole.
RodDate Played: 02/18/2009
Commented on January 12, 2009: I played this course a couple of times in the past year. The green complexes are really different in that the areas around the green have the grass cut down. It is better to putt the ball when off the green than to chip it because they are cut so tight. Like Scotland. Different for Myrtle Beach.
