About Dunes Golf & Beach Club

As the second-oldest golf course in Myrtle Beach, The Dunes is still second-to-none when it comes to the golf experience.


Opened in 1949, the legendary Dunes Club continues to be rated the No. 1 Golf Course in Myrtle Beach by Golf Digest, Golf Magazine and Golfweek and made the "100 Greatest Courses in the US" list by Golf Magazine (1993-2001) and "America's 100 Best Classical Courses" by Golfweek/Golf & Travel (1997-Present).


The Dunes Club is famous for the Par 5 No. 13 hole nicknamed "Waterloo" for its risky bend around Lake Singleton. The dogleg par 5 on this course has also gained a lot of recognition as a favorite hole to play. This course features a classic layout as well as A-1 bentgrass greens that make play fast and smooth.


This Myrtle Beach golf course has hosted six Senior PGA Tour Championships, a Women's US Open and several finals of PGA Tour Q-School, as well as the PGA National Professional Championship.


Following a 90-day renovation closure, under the direction of 'The Open Doctor' Rees Jones, the Dunes Championship Course re-opened to fantastic reviews in 2013 and now offers world class golf instruction, a complete practice facility, oceanfront dining and full guest locker facilities.


This limited access course boasts some of the best staff along the Grand Strand. With rave reviews, The Dunes Club is a must-play for every golfer who has the privilege to book a tee-time here.

"First time at Dunes Golf & Beach Club and it was a great experience. Course in great shape and good pace of play. Very challenging. Some bunkers had very hard sand but staff likely was not caught up treating them from the storm the night before. Staff was amazing. I would highly recommend and will be back. "

"I found this course to be in great shape. The greens had been aerated several weeks ago and were very quick. I felt the course was in great shape. Typically Jones style, raised greens and levels on the green. as long as you stayed on the fairway, no trouble getting to greens but once on, delicate touch needed."

"I am a novice when it comes to course play, so I did your course NO justice. That being said, I had an AMAZING experience!!! It started with the gate attendant who asked if it was my first time and he assured me I was in for a treat. I truly was; starting with the chef who whipped me up a breakfast sandwich before my Tee time. I was placed in a foursome and they were great guys who didn't allow me to ruin their day...lol. The staff was AWESOME, especially Alex who was so pleasant he made me forget what my score was. Overall, I can't WAIT to play again!!!"
