News > "America's Greatest 100 Public Golf Courses" (2009-2010)

Dunes Golf & Beach Club

By: Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday

Seven Myrtle Beach area golf courses were named to the 2009-2010 "America's 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses" list, just published in the May issue of Golf Digest.

The Grand Strand placed more public golf courses on Golf Digest's list than any other golf destination in the country, with two area courses making their debut in the biennial ranking.

The Pinehurst area was second with five public courses while Pebble Beach placed three courses on the "Top 100" ranking. South Carolina led all states with 11 public golf courses recognized, with seven of those located in the Myrtle Beach area.

At number 33, the Heritage Club was the highest-ranking Myrtle Beach area course on the "Top 100" list. The longest-running Myrtle Beach course to be honored by Golf Digest, Dunes Golf & Beach Club, was ranked 38th, followed by Tidewater Golf Club & Plantation at 41st.

Caledonia Golf & Fish Club was the fastest moving Grand Strand area course on the "Top 100" as the Mike Strantz designed course jumped 20 positions from its 2007-2008 ranking of #86 to its current ranking of #66.

The Resort Club at Grande Dunes, the 2009 National Golf Course of the Year according to the National Golf Course Owners Association, debuted on the biennial ranking at #77.

Two Barefoot Resort & Golf courses were named to the prestigious ranking with the Fazio Course at Barefoot Resort selected at number 96 while The Dye Club at Barefoot Resort was the second Myrtle Beach area course to make its debut at 99th on the prestigious rankings.

"The fact that seven Myrtle Beach area courses made Golf Digest's list of the 2009-2010 'America's Top 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses' is a testament to the quality of the golf experience that the Grand Strand provides," said Bill Golden, president of Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday. "Two Grand Strand area courses joined the ranking this time and there are probably 10 more courses worthy of consideration for the 1022-1012 listing."

Established in 1966, Golf Digest's survey of America's 100 Greatest Golf Courses remains the oldest and most respected golf course ranking. The rankings are based on extensive play and scrutiny of thousands of courses every two years by a panel of more than 900 low-handicap golfers.

The 2009-2010 ranking is the 23rd edition of the ultimate honor paid to American golf course architecture.

The courses were judged on various criteria: shot values, resistance to scoring, design variety, memorability, aesthetics, conditioning and ambience.

After the panelists submitted their evaluations, Golf Digest averages the scores of the categories and totals the averages to determine the overall rankings. A course must be two years old to be considered for "America's 100 Greatest Golf Courses."
