I played the Grande Dunes Resort Course a little while back, this in my opinion, is hands down one of the finest layouts in Myrtle Beach. Listening to golfer’s chatting in the clubhouse, I heard it mentioned on several occasions that they could play this course everyday and not get bored with it; such is the genius of this design.
From the minute one tees it up on the nice square and level tee box on hole number one, you get the feeling that this golf course is going to be something special. Beautiful wide-open Bermuda grass fairways provide lies that anyone would love to hit off, the golf ball literally “sits up” and is so inviting to hit. The rough that borders the fairways is penalizing, but that’s what it’s for, to punish errant tee shots.
Grande Dunes closed in the beginning of summer to install new Champions Bermuda grass greens and re-opened on August 21. These new greens are absolutely fabulous. Armed with subtle undulations, they roll fast and true but are very receptive to approach shots from the fairway. The beauty of this new strain of Bermuda is, that as it matures the greens will get better and better they will be more consistent year round.
The Resort course is challenging but very fair, each hole presents a different test even for the most accomplished golfer. The views along the waterway holes are simply breathtaking and provide one with a tranquil and soothing effect. Grande Dunes offers a complete golf experience on the Grand Strand and I highly recommend this golf course to anyone who truly loves the game.
Among the additional features at Grand Dunes are five sets of tees, a pretty open layout and many strategically placed water hazards. Their practice facility includes; a huge driving range, a nice size putting green, and a large chipping green complete with undulations. The golf shop is well stocked and their inventory features something for everyone.
