Dunes Golf - Thomas Beach Vacations

Myrtle Beach, long celebrated as the “Golf Capital of the World,” upholds its prestigious title with sweeping renovations and enhancements across its many esteemed courses. As golf enthusiasts from around the globe flock to this sunny destination, they are greeted with the legendary Southern hospitality and some of the finest play conditions (that have only improved with time).

The recent transformations are most notable at several high-profile courses along the Grand Strand. These courses, historically loved for their accessibility and beauty, have undergone significant upgrades to enhance the overall player experience. From the luxuriously appointed Caledonia Golf & Fish Club to the esteemed Dunes Golf & Beach Club—fresh off hosting its inaugural PGA Tour event—the area’s commitment to excellence is apparent. The enhancements range from complete overhauls of traditional layouts to subtle tweaks designed to modernize the play experience without losing the charm and challenges that have drawn players for decades.

The upgrades are comprehensive, including introducing advanced turf management technologies, redesigned greens, and expanded fairways. This boosts the aesthetic appeal of these courses and improves the sustainability and playability, ensuring they remain competitive globally. The focus has been on creating more inclusive and enjoyable courses that cater to all levels of golfers, from the seasoned pro to the enthusiastic novice.

Moreover, Myrtle Beach’s growth as a top-tier golf destination is paralleled by its rapid development as one of America’s fastest-growing cities. This surge has brought an influx of new investments and amenities, making it an even more attractive destination for golf vacations. The enhanced infrastructure of the area, with better roads, more dining options, and a wider array of entertainment perfectly complements the upgraded golf offerings.

The local golf community, including course owners and managers, regularly collaborates to ensure that each guest’s experience is spectacular. This collective effort is part of why Myrtle Beach remains a beloved destination for golfers and their families, promising more than just a place to play but a place to create lasting memories.

As these courses rise to meet global standards, they invite new and returning visitors to witness the transformations and to experience first-hand the renewed spirit of golf in Myrtle Beach. For those who live and breathe golf, there’s never been a better time to visit.
