Architect

Robert Trent Jones, Rees Jones

Few places in the US are as rich in great courses as Myrtle Beach, SC, but the course at Dunes Golf and Beach Club stands above the rest for its antiquity and its association with the Jones family of architects. The layout is one of the first that Robert Trent Jones ever designed, and his unique style is already evident in tees that are extended and straight. Rees Jones was then brought in in 2003 to carry out major renovations, and he added a supernumerary hole between the 13th and 14th that can be pressed into service as a tie-breaker during tournaments, or as a spare should one of the main eighteen be in need of major work. The elder Jones' courses frequently feature extensive water (in part in order to compensate for Gene Sarazen's introduction of the sand wedge, which tamed many bunkers), and this is particularly true of the Dunes course.
