Thanks for this information. For my budget, i would choose Surf. I can not pay this 21K initiation fees at the Dunes.

I would choose Surf even if the money wasn't an issue. More relaxed and lots of open games - that's more my style, no knock on Dunes, what a great place.

Golf is just an excuse to drink whiskey and smoke cigars

The Surf has a different vibe than the other Strand courses.

Old school.

Almost seems like you are golfing up north.

Kelly Tilghman -from the GolfChannel- once mentioned that if she could only play one course, it would be Surf.

Anyone know who the designer of the course was ?

1putt1... great info on the cost of memberships!!

If it was me... i would join The Surf Club in a heartbeat!!  The conditions were outstanding the 2 times our group visited... plus the greens were just a slight downgrade compared to The Dunes. As guests my group was treated very well by everyone we encountered...club pro/bag drop guys/cart girl/bartender after the round. We will definitely be making a return trip to The Surf Club.

Based on the article about Grande Dunes and the road to Waterway Hills, maybe 
Brian will have Grande Dunes Members on the package list soon.

John Lafoy, who was an understudy to George Cobb, did a renovation to the Surf in the early 1990s. Not sure what all was involved in the renovation but I think the green complexes were totally re-done.
