Since the Dunes Golf & Beach Club opened all 18 holes in 1950, the recognitions and accolades have been countless.  The Robert Trent Jones course consistently ranks annually as a "Top 100" course in both Golf Magazine and Golf Digest.  The design has been the proud host of a US Women's Open, six PGA Senior Tour Championships, USGA Championships and multiple PGA Tour Qualifying events. After playing it for the first time, Lee Trevino said, "That's a fabulous golf course.  It's one of the best I have ever played."

The signature hole at the Dunes Golf & Beach Club is the 590-yard 13th.  A long, three-shot par 5 with water to the right off the tee, the player must also carry this water on his or her second shot.  A mid to short iron approach to a small two-tiered green keeps the player on their toes until the ball is holed.  Those thinking of an easy finishing hole will be quite surprised when they reach "Little Gator,” a long par 4 with water fronting the back to front sloped green – a great finishing hole to a fantastic golf course.

Best course in Myrtle Beach. And certainly best greens.

Josh (La Fayette , GA)


Excellent track. Very friendly staff.

James (North Canton , OH)


The name says it all! Nothing but the best and all the golf you want. If you are a low handicapper, then you have all the opportunity in the world to test your game out playing this 7400 yard beast from the tips at sea level.

John (Powell, TN)


Excellent condition of the course and wonderful views.

Norman (Glendale, NY)




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.

Robert (Barnhart, MO)


The course was beautiful. It's a difficult course but not as bad as I thought. No complaints.

Tom (Long Beach, CA)


Favorite course on the Grand Strand.

Robert (Island Lake South, AB)


Excellent Experience.



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!!!!

Paul (Charlotte, NC)


Best course in Myrtle Beach.

Dawn (Buck Hill Falls, PA)


Smooth greens; beautiful hole design; well tended landscaping; pleasure to play; easy, quick unload and load.

Robert (Laurence Harbor, NJ)


(Liked the) speed of greens.

Kathy (Indio, CA)


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.

Richard (Travelers Rest, SC)


Need GPS on carts.

Doug (Bel Air, MD)


First time I got to play, Dunes. BEST COURSE EVER. Everyone was outstanding. Loved the dogleg par 5.

Keir (Rittman, OH)


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.

Tom (Long Beach, CA)


Great service as always. Greens recently punched.

Dave (Louisville, KY)


Give yardages from tee boxes to trouble.

Norman (North Myrtle Beach, SC)


Excellent condition with fast greens.

Guy (Mississauga, ON)


Long delays because on lightning made the experience less than ideal.



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.

KJ (Teaneck, NJ)


A must-play course. Impressed in every way. Very challenging and yet fun to play. Top notch condition all around.



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.

Edward (Roanoke, VA)



Martin (Myrtle Beach, SC)


Green were immaculate and rolled fast and smooth. The 13th is my favorite hole.

Glenn (Bloomingdale, IL)


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.

Harry (Carlisle, PA)


Great time.

John (Wakefield, MA)


Loved the course. Greens as slippery as a kitchen table and true.



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

William (Carlisle, PA)


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.

Lyle (Breinigsville, PA)



Scott (Morton, IL)


Too hard. Greens were too fast

Ken (Ypsilanti, MI)


Course in excellent shape. Due to slow group ahead of us, staff apologized sincerely and authorized free beverage for us from the cart girl.

Danny (Duncan, OK)



David (Richmond, VA)


We have been coming to Myrtle for 29 years and this course was in the best shape ever

Tom (Midlothian, VA)


Would like to have known that top dressing was being applied.



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.

Peter (Salz-burg, OT)


Really great

Andrew (Hackettstown, NJ)



Sandy (Annville, PA)



Kevin (Acton, MA)


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

Jim (Glenwood, MD)






Richard (Sykesville, MD)



Ann (MC Kees Rocks, PA)


Really challenging course. First time we played and it's definitely one we'll be back to

Clayton (Virginia Beach, VA)


Like the new greens

George (Newark, OH)



Dan (Pittsburgh, PA)



Clifton (Holly Springs, NC)


Don't miss this course if you plan to play in Myrtle Beach area. Great conditions. Every hole better than the next. 5 Stars.
