DESCRIPTION
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.

"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."

"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!!!!"

"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."

"I hadn't played the Dunes Club in a number of years. I won't wait that long again. This is a classic golf course with great shot values but it was the greens that made it a great experience. They were in perfect shape; very fast and smooth. It took us a couple of holes to adjust but they were great to putt on.The staff was great and our foursome finished in 3:40! A definite must play!"

"Yes, this is a nice course. But based on all the reviews i would have expected something special. The course is well maintained, lush and great fairways, greens were in quite good shape with some minor and small spots (a little slow) and bunkers were mostly ok. It's a 1980's layout which you will feel being on the course. It's a fair course with some holes along water and one along marshland. However, i would have expected much nicer views since it's called the Dunes. Just one hole, which is number 9 offers a view of the ocean but in some distance. Compared to other courses in the area it's definitely overpriced and there's way nicer layouts. The friendliness of staff was ok, food as well but with limited choices. The view from the clubhouse is nice, it faces the ocean. I wouldn't play it again, at least not for that price we paid."

"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."
