Significantly improved after 2020 renovation

Grande Dunes Members Club was a perfect poster-child for pre-Recession golf development. Built to take advantage of the height of the market, it was billed as a Naples-style exclusive private club - complete with imposing Mediterranean-style residences - in the middle of Myrtle Beach. The hole corridors have always been generous, but the original course was bunkered to an extreme degree, and the bentgrass greens were typically soft, which took much of the interest out of a set of actually quite interesting green contours.

A summer-long renovation project in 2020 solved both of those issues. Several enormous bunkers were removed or reduced in size, often taking out sand where it would only punish the high-handicap player. Greens were converted to TifEagle as the club realizes that firming up the golf course will make it a lot more fun for members, as well as guests, who now have access to the course. If you are staying in the central part of Myrtle Beach, the Members Club is a nice option.

NOTE: Special kudos to the club for painting its fairways, rather than overseeding them, for the winter. The practice enhances playability while still providing some visual contrast.

As good as there is

Only one or two other Myrtle Beach courses is as perfect as this exclusive course. The conditions were pristine, the staff was great, the experience could not have been better. The course is as plush as you can get. The new greens are phenomenal and ,the fairways play almost like greens. There are not many places I have seen like the Members Club. Awesome experience.

Exclusive Private Course

As always the best conditioned course in Myrtle Beach. Bent greens rolling around 11 & 1/2. The other review had to be for G D Resort Course. There is NO PUBLIC PLAY @ The Members Course. GDMC is Totally Awesome.

Never again

I played this course as part of our package during a buddies trip in March/April 2014 (the computer wouldn't let me select that far back as the date). We played all 5 Legends courses, plus this course as our "add-on" course for our 6th round. Unfortunately, the weather was terrible the day we played -- brutally cold. But more unfortunately, the staff at the course were among the most rude staff we have ever encountered in our annual trips to MB (2013, 2014, 2015, and this coming March/April 2016). The pace of play was fantastic, only because I think we were among a very small group of people actually golfing that day (it was that cold) -- the course was relatively empty. I don't recall anything in particular about the course itself (ie. conditions, layout), so that tells me it was neither terrible nor fantastic -- that translates into "average" for me. But what did stand out above everything else was the unacceptable staff. I'll give credit where credit is due -- the young woman working the beverage cart was great -- very pleasant and she was shrewd -- she brought hot chocolate instead of beer/pop! But even she couldn't make up for her ignorant colleagues. Down to a man, we all said we'd never again spend our money at this course.
