The Dunes Golf and Beach Club is a memorable host to all in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -- No golf course along the Grand Strand has played a better host to so much history than The Dunes Golf and Beach Club in the heart of the world's largest golf destination.

This Robert Trent Jones, Sr. classic has served as the playground for hackers, hopefuls and heroes since opening in 1948. Hopefuls of all skill levels participating in the World Amateur Handicap Championship, the world's largest amateur golf tournament, have played their championship round at The Dunes Club for 17 years. The hackers (golf journalists) played a round of their Golf Writers Association of America tournament here every year from 1954-2005. And the heroes (golfers who can really play) have teed it up in such prestigious events as the 1973 PGA Tour Qualifying School, the 1962 U.S. Women's Open and the Senior PGA Championship from 1994-99.

Both RTJ and his son, Rees Jones, have tinkered with the tough, brawny layout over the years. The best run of holes starts at the par-3 ninth, which offers up a glimpse of the Atlantic Ocean. After the challenging par-4 10th, Alligator Alley runs through holes 11-13. The par-5 13th wraps around Lake Singleton, finishing at the most severe green on the course.
