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."

David (Columbia, MD)


Fun course

Kathy (Brampton, ON)


The course was in great condition and I played well

Paul (Granby, CT)


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.

Steve (Bluff City, TN)


Groups favorite course!

Salvatore (Raleigh, NC)


Course was in good shape considering they just had a major hurricane and substantial rain the day before

Hunter (Mount Airy, NC)


Course in great shape especially after the recent rain. Always enjoy playing here.

William (Celina, TX)


Overall experience was terrific. Course is gorgeous and was in terrific shape. Would highly recommend to anyone coming to MB to play golf.

David (Canton, MI)

Great layout and conditions, despite significant, recent rain.

Chris (Cary, NC)


Staff was well trained and courteous...rare in Myrtle Beach.

Douglas (DeLand, FL)


Everything was very good here except 1 green

James (Cliffside Park , NJ)


Excellent course and wonderful staff. Best condition of the courses I played. Will defeinitely go back.

James (Surfside Beach, SC)


Greens were poor/fair shape. I am Prime Time Member so I payed good rate, but greens were definitely not up to what is supposed to be premier course. Course layout was very nice. Not busy at all so no beverage cart.

Daniel (Plymouth, MI)


Very nice golf course, nice people would definitely play there again, the attendants were very accommodating!

Shaun (Peabody, MA)


Awesome experience course was in great shape staff was friendly, went above and beyond to make sure you enjoyed your experience will play there again for sure

Steve (Marion, IN)


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. Thanks Joe Dipre~Grande Dunes Resort Club Head Golf Professional

Lyle (Lyons, NY)


Good staff

Brian (Hollywood, SC)


Friendly staff

Stanley (Bluffton, SC)


Back nine fun , challenging, and picturesque

Sean (Southbury, CT)


The staff were wonderful

Lawrence (East Haven, CT)


great course, they had some severe damage to greens but were very accommodating to makeup for these conditions

John (Ellicott City , MD)


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

David (Canaan, VT)


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

David (Lexington, SC)


First time playing course and loved it, will definitely be back

John (Chicago, IL)


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.

Shawn (Columbus, OH)


First time playing here and will be playing it again when I come back. Great course and great staff. Very helpful.

Robert (Elkins, WV)


Starter was great at making you fell like you are welcome.

Edward (Hightstown, NJ)


Course is very good shape. One of the better courses in Myrtle beach. Many have gone down hill. Not this one

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)


Group ahead had no one in front yet we waited most of round. Could have played in 30 mins less.

R (Wake Forest, North Carolina)


Course in good shape. Excellent range and practice areas. Tees available for many skill levels. Pace of play a little slow.

Susan (Ponte Vedra Beach , FL)


Terrain with elevation changes on back 9 and elevated greens for a change

Lawrence (Hagerstown, Maryland)


Nice layout. Good views. I like the holes on the Intracoastal Waterway.

Gary (Milwaukee , WI)


This is one of our groups all time favorites Everything is well done. From club drop to the finish of your day. Course conditions are exceptional. Staff very accommodating. Would highly recommend.

John (Stanley, NC)


Fantastic greens. Fast and true. Fairways were in great shape after reseeding. Some wet places with bad mower tracks.

Kevin (Nossegem, Ot)


The condition of the course was excellent and I liked the layout. Everyone was very friendly. It will be top of my list to play again on my next visit

Larry (Leeland, SC)


So much fun. We'll be back here for sure.

was a good track staff was very friendly. Had a good time will play here again. Hole 8 was fun.



All good



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 service. Course was in great shape. Fun to play.

Brian (Brewster, NY)


I would have liked to know about all the facilities you offer but besides that the course is one of Myrtle Beach's best.

Franklin (Mount Pleasant, SC0)



Franchot (Marietta, GA)


Efficient check-in process and ease of getting to practice facility prior to round.
