The Dunes Golf and Beach Resort offers a Robert Trent Jones-designed course built right along the shores of the Atlantic Ocean.

Golf fans from around the world know South Carolina is a world-class destination for golf—both for playing golf with your buddies and watching top professionals play in PGA TOUR events such as the RBC Heritage and major championships like the 2021 PGA Championship at Kiawah.

But, starting in 2024, South Carolina is offering something new for golf lovers—a brand new PGA TOUR event to be held in Myrtle Beach May 9 – 12. The Myrtle Beach Classic is the first sanctioned major tournament to be held in Myrtle Beach in the past 24 years and it will be hosted by Dunes Golf & Beach Club, a championship course right on the Atlantic Ocean in the heart of Myrtle Beach.

Often referred to as the “Golf Capital of the World,” Myrtle Beach has long had a reputation as one of the best places to find challenging and affordable courses and this tournament solidifies that reputation even more. This dual-field event is one of 36 events that make up the FedEx Cup regular season in 2024. Tickets run $25 for practice rounds and $45-$55 for tournament days. A weekly admission badge will run $200.

The Dunes Golf and Beach Club, a championship golf course known for its beauty, sits alongside the Atlantic Ocean. This Robert Trent Jones design has hosted many high-profile events including PGA TOUR Championships, USGA, Collegiate and men’s and women’s state amateur competitions. Today, this renowned 18-hole golf course is consistently ranked among the Top 100 courses in the nation.

Myrtle Beach is not only known as the “Golf Capital of the World,” but visitors will find themselves surrounded by Myrtle Beach restaurants offering up fresh South Carolina seafood, world-class barbecue and everything in between. Be sure check out the live entertainment options such as the House of Blues Myrtle Beach, the Carolina Opry and The Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show! Barefoot Landing and Broadway at the Beach are not to be missed for their great dining and shopping offerings.

So, plan your next trip to Myrtle Beach and watch some of the best golfers on the PGA TOUR compete in the Myrtle Beach Classic and maybe make a little on-course history yourself! What better place than Myrtle Beach to make that happen?
