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."

Greens were not the best but the course compensated us for quality issue which was nice.

Ted (Forest Park, IL)

The greens are in poor shape. The course layout is good.

Staff Response
The Resort Club at Grande Dunes understands that our green conditions are below standard at this point in time. We are working extremely hard to improve these conditions daily and feel we will be back in championship conditions in a couple of months.

John (Ellicott City , MD)

Greens had some bad spots but for the most part - we enjoyed the round

David (Canaan, VT)

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.

Staff Response
We want to first thank you for coming out and playing Grande Dunes. We are painfully aware that we are going through issues with our greens. Specifically the issues we are dealing with are related to the extremely cold winter we have experienced. The USGA agronomy staff has been out at Grande Dunes to help aid us in how to treat these issues. We will do everything in our power to bring the conditions back to are normal high standards. We are very sorry that the greens are the way they are right know. Please contact me at the pro-shop and I would love to speak with you. Thanks Joe Dipre, General Manager

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.

Thomas (West Salem, WI)

Number 4 was very brutal to me. But I love the hole. The par 3 14th is awesome. What a great view. Need some way to communicate frost delays. Text messaging system.

Patrick (Cornelius, NC)

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.

Jimmy (Augusta, GA)

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

J. (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.

Allen (Jackson, NJ)

12/07/2016

I would play this course again.

Ben (Pottstown, PA)

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.

Henry (Wallace, NC)

11/11/2016

Wide fairways mostly, but still including some challenges in landing areas.

Peter (Raleigh, NC)

11/08/2016

Good experience. Would have liked to know we were starting on back 9 when tee time was made.

Patrick (Stowe, VT)

10/23/2016

The greens were in great condition and the fastest of the three courses we played this week.

(Liked) the course as a hole. The staff, the course and the way we were treated.

John (Collegeville, PA)

09/28/2016

Dry, great conditioning, nice practice center.

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.

John (Powell, OH)

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!!

Ron (Marana, AZ)

Nice condition, nice people.

Floyd (Bahama, NC)

Great Course

Bob (Taylors, SC)

09/11/2016

Nice track, good people.

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.
