The Dunes Golf & Beach Club


5-star : simply the best - golf courses don’t get much better than this.
   The Dunes Golf & Beach Club Est. 1948

Where2Golf says: 

The Dunes Golf & Beach Club is home to a top-rated championship golf course, regularly rated the best in the Myrtle Beach area. Located in the heart of this famous golfing Mecca, the clubhouse is set against a backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean, while the two nine-hole loops both head inland away from the beach.

The constant presence of water, largely absent on the front-nine, makes for an intimidating start to the back-nine. The dog-legging par-4 11th and long par-3 12th are flanked on the right by the expansive Buck Island wetland preserve, while the very testing par-5 13th hugs the side of Lake Singleton.

Jones's deftly crafted parkland layout provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. Although largely private, the Dunes Club allows limited access to its tee sheets for a few fortunate guests wishing to experience this defining Myrtle Beach layout.

MOST MEMORABLE HOLE: Each hole at The Dunes has its own descriptive name, giving golfers an idea of what to expect before they tee off. The signature hole, the par-5 13th is aptly called “Waterloo. This legendary hole brings Lake Singleton into play from tee-to-green as it sharply and very curvaceously doglegs left to right around the lake.

Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.
