Welcome to The Dunes Golf & Beach Club
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
Welcome to The Dunes Golf & Beach Club
The Dunes Golf and Beach Club began in 1947 as a dream by local Myrtle Beach businessmen and women at a small fishing cabin located on Singleton Swash overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. A member-owned Club with 800+ members, we are located oceanfront along the pristine shores of Myrtle Beach, SC. The Club is filled with rich history and fond memories, and after 70 years, continues to provide its Members and guests with exceptional service and a family-friendly atmosphere.
The only golf course in Myrtle Beach with ocean views and timeless design by famed architect, Robert Trent Jones, the Dunes stands as a “Top 100 Golf Course” in virtually every major magazine ranking. The Club has played host to many PGA Tours, USGA Championships, women’s, amateur, national, collegiate, and state events.
Our Tennis program continues to impress with its nationally ranked Professionals and USTA sanctioned tournaments. Our players regularly win state titles and our youth tennis is highly regarded as one of the best tennis programs in the Myrtle Beach area with over 200 juniors participating.
With an award-winning culinary team, premier oceanfront location, exceptional service staff, and an on-site event coordinator, the Dunes Club’s catering services offer the ideal venue for your Myrtle Beach wedding or special event.
We are fortunate and grateful to be considered one of the most sought-after semi-private clubs in the southeast and strive to continue growing and exceeding our high standards for excellence. We welcome you to join us and take a closer look at our wonderful amenities.

Golf at The Dunes Golf & Beach Club
The Dunes Golf and Beach Club was incorporated in May of 1948. A little-known architect named Robert Trent Jones was commissioned to design the layout and 70 years later, there is no doubt that Robert Trent Jones is regarded as one of the all-time greatest golf course architects ever to have touched the earth.
Now after seven decades of history and tradition, the Dunes Golf and Beach Club stands as a “Top 100 Golf Course” in virtually every major magazine ranking. The Club has played host to many PGA Tours, Senior PGA Tours, USGA Championships, Women’s, Amateur, National, Collegiate, and State events.
The course has seen some minor renovations throughout the years but has retained the original essence of the design, proving that the excellence of the layout would stand up to the numerous industry changes over the decades. The Dunes Club currently has over 800 members and is semi-private. However, the members have allowed limited access to the tee sheets for a few fortunate guests wishing to experience this Southern gem.
Tennis at The Dunes Golf & Beach Club
The goal for our tennis staff is to inspire interest and promote participation at all playing levels and for all ages. To reach this goal, the tennis programs offer a wide array of activities for its members. We offer private lessons, group and team clinics, social mixers and special events, USTA tournaments, adult and junior club championships, and USTA League play for all ages and skill levels.
Tennis at the Dunes Club has grown tremendously since its inception in 1970 with hundreds of members, both adults and children, now participating in our programs. Our tennis professionals are some of the top ranked players in the state of South Carolina and each of them are passionate about teaching the game through regular group clinics and private lessons. Over the years, the Tennis Center has grown to include seven clay courts and two hard courts, all of which are lighted for evening play, making tennis in Myrtle Beach a convenient pass-time regardless of your hectic schedule.
