Built in 2002, this golf club is home to two golf courses: the resort & the member's club. The resort club was named "top 100" by Golf Digest in 2003 and the member's club was named "top 50" private courses to play. The resort club has been played by several PGA & LPGA pros including Natalie Gulbis and John Daly. In May 2009, the Grande Dunes was threatened by a wildfire in the Grand Strand area that made national headlines. However, due to the quick action of the golf course employees, minimum damage was sustained and the course was preserved.
