There are some courses that just fit your eye, and The Dunes Golf & Beach Club in North Myrtle Beach, S.C.,  is one of them.

Wide fairways, strategic bunkering, elevation changes that help define the course, and A-1 Bentgrass to Ultradwarf Champion Bermuda greens that leave you scratching your head are just part of the story.

The Dunes Golf & Beach Club played a critical role in bringing Myrtle Beach into the consciousness of the U.S. golfing public.

The Dunes Golf & Beach Club hosted the 1962 U.S. Women’s Open, the Senior Tour (now PGA Tour Champions) in 1994 and 1998, the U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur in 1977 and the U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-ball in 2017.
