The Dunes Club is located in the heart of Myrtle Beach and was founded by area businessmen in 1947. They strive to offer the best in golf and customer service. It was rated as the number 1 golf course in Myrtle Beach by three different golf magazines; Golf Digest, Golf Magazine, and Golfweek. Along with numerous national and international accolades, the club owns a decade long record of hosting prestigious, high-level amateur and professional tournaments.
These tournaments include the Southern Amateur, PGA Tour Qualifying, the Senior Tour Championship, and The United States Women Open. In May of 2017, the Dunes Golf & Beach Club will once again take center stage as the host of the U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship. It goes without saying that the participants will be given a fair test of their skills on this spectacular Robert Trent Jones design.
Built by legendary golf course designer Robert Trent Jones, the Dunes Club is known as the most scenic course in Myrtle Beach. The golf course features beautiful Bermuda grass surfaces that are always in immaculate condition. As a unique feature, each hole has been named to aptly describe the hole. The front nine weaves through a dense forest before bursting into a stunning view of the ocean. The 9th hole is a spectacular par 3 that offers a breathtaking ocean view from the tee.
The back nine meanders around tidal marshes before turning back inland. The course’s signature stretch of holes is the 11th through 13th, culminating with the famous “Waterloo” hole. “Waterloo,” the famed 13th hole has been selected by Sports Illustrated as one of the “Best 18 Holes in America.” A Complete practice facility, Southern hospitality, and other amenities are among the extras that set this course apart from the rest.
The Dunes Club boasts an incomparable set of facilities. It is primarily a members club so the dining room, pro shop, and practice facility is top notch. They also offer lessons and club fittings with their staff members to round out an award winning experience.
