The Members Club at Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, has reopened its golf course following renovation work by Craig Schreiner, the architect responsible for the original design, which opened in 2005.
The course is one of several within the Grande Dunes master-planned community, with the club managed by McConnell Golf.
The club’s goal for the renovation was to provide a better golfing experience. Work started in December 2019 and included renovations to all bunkers as well as new drainage to reduce flooding and water retention in high-traffic areas. In a 90-day second phase, the course was re-grassed, transitioning from bentgrass to ultradwarf bermuda.
“It’s always great to return to Grande Dunes Members Club,” said Schreiner. “I was glad to work with the golf team once again to rejuvenate the course and even incorporate new ideas and solutions. Golfers will enjoy a whole new level of play.”
“The course has never looked better,” said Brian Vest, head golf professional at the club. “We are thrilled that these renovations have taken place and we’re excited for our golfers to see all our hard work in person.”
