I have been going to the MB area since 1987. I have played pretty much all the courses in MB, but this was the first time playing The Dunes. This course along with Caledonia are "MUST PLAY'.

Played when it was a few weeks after Hurricane Matthew. Still a lot of debris laying around. Took away from experience. Would not have mentioned this if it were not that I played other courses in same area that were cleaned up nice.

Our group has taken an annual Sept/Oct golf trip to MB for about 25 years. Having played virtually everything MB has to offer (including many now-closed courses), this year we decided to plunk down the extra money to play the The Dunes.

There's nothing bad to say about the course, except it's questionable whether it's worth the $169-$185 greens fees. The elevated greens are fast and true, the RTJ layout is smart and challenging (from the blue, anyway), the bunkers and fairways are exceptionally well maintained. It's a nice country club setting, no doubt.

We can now say we've played The Dunes, but for $169, it's extremely doubtful we'll play it again. It's an upgrade from the already wonderful public courses of MB, but is it worth the extra $70-plus per round? If that kind of cash means little to you, I suppose so. Otherwise, a day at Heritage Club or Pawley's or Tidewater should satisfy the average/above-average golfer just as well.

(BTW, the "ocean views" mentioned are from the members-only dining room in the Clubhouse, not from the course itself.)

A friend got my group a very good rate to play Dunes. I have heard lots of hype about this course over the 29 years I have been going to Myrtle Beach to play in the World Amateur. So , I would say that my expectations were extremely high.

First of all the greens were fast...very fast for Myrtle Beach summer greens. They had been recently punched but that posed no problem. They rolled very true.

The course was very nice but somehow it missed the WOW Factor for me. Nice greens, nice bunkers, tee boxes and fairways but I have played courses in MB with more of a WOW factor than this.

I am glad I did not have to pay the advertised rate.

I've been going to Myrtle yearly for the last 35 years. I've played every coursed there, including a bunch that have closed down. The Dunes Club, not to be confused with Grande Dunes, is a traditional, tree lined, Robert Trent Jones course. It's also one of the oldest tracks in Myrtle and the former home of the Senior PGA Championship. The greens are the best on the Strand and it'd always in good shape. The Dunes Club is hands down the best in Myrtle Beach.

As I researched this website (https://beta.golfnow.com/courses/1036334-the-dunes-golf-beach-club-details), I came upon overlayed typeface which was undecipherable. Can you please correct this glitch?
