Ranked among the “Top 100 Courses in America”, the famed Dunes Golf & Beach Golf is a classic Robert Trent Jones seaside design built in the mid-1940s. Many of the holes on the front nine are bordered by mature oaks and pines. Much of the back nine plays along the tidal marshes and Singleton Lake. Gently rolling hills with Robert Trent Jones’ signature elevated greens complexes and deep bunkers make this a great test of golf, thus a popular venue for major golf events.

In addition to being ranked among “America’s Top 100” golf course in virtually every major golf publication, The Dunes Club has hosted numerous prestigious events, including the 1962 USGA Women’s US Open, 1973 PGA Tour Qualifying School, 1994-1999 Senior PGA Tour Championship, 2005 Southern Amateur, 2011 Carolinas Amateur, and the 2014 PGA Professional National Championship.

Sports Illustrated named the Dunes’ famed 13th hole to their list of “Top 100 Golf Holes in America.” Nicknamed “Waterloo,” the par 5, 13th plays 640 yards from the tips wraps clockwise around Singleton Lake. The drive needs to be strategically placed as close as possible to the edge of the lake to allow for a long second shot over the corner of the lake to leave a mid- to short- iron to the green. The greens complex is surrounded by three deep bunkers with a two-tiered green that is difficult to two-putt if one finds their ball on the wrong tier.

The Dunes Club underwent renovations during the summer of 2013 that included new Champion Ultra-Dwarf Bermuda grass greens, that other subtle improvements and modifications under the direction of RTJ’s son, Rees Jones.

The Dunes Club maintains a private membership, so guest tee times are highly coveted and available through select hotels and golf packagers. Amenities at the Dunes Club include a grill and dining room, practice facility, lockers, golf instruction and more.
