Very good, challenging golf course

This is a very good but very challenging golf course. The greens are lightening fast and putting can ruin your score. The surrounding area is very attractive, the course is... read more

Recently played here as a group of 12. 5 hour round due to slow play holding up the entire course. 3 groups waiting on one teebox. Nothing at all done by club staff to move pace of play along. The golf course was in good shape and the layout is better than average. But due to the lackluster guest service... More

This is a very good but very challenging golf course. The greens are lightening fast and putting can ruin your score. The surrounding area is very attractive, the course is usually in great condition and the staff are very friendly. Also has a nice club house.

Group of 5 of us stayed here for 2 weeks, April 2015, booked through Thomas Cook. Could not fault the villa. It was spotless and very spacious. Was impressed with the standard of accommodation here and the facilities. Lovely clean pool and the golf course on which the villas are situated is immaculate. Half an hour in the car to... More

Found the Greens to be poor and as a result it was like putting on concrete - other areas of the course were also shabby ( areas around the greens with no grass for example) The course looks pretty and has a lot of bunkers as the name suggests but aside from that is fairly ordinary and its just not...

We booked a villa at southern dunes through lowcost holidays. Had the usual worries not having seen the exact villa we'd be staying in and had images of cockroach infested rat holes in my head. Could not be further from truth. The villa is huge 4 bedroom with garage and private pool overlooking lake joe. The area is beautiful ,... More

Worth the drive from Orlando. Changes in elevation, tight shots, dog legs, decent length, crazy number of bunkers (good fun), good conditions, large restaurant, full range (not included), interesting course. Pro shop staff could be a bit friendlier but certainly worth a visit.

We were very pressed with the staff. Friendly and very helpful. The condition of the golf course was excellent. If you don't like sand bunkers, don't come here. There are plenty and they are challenging. We had played TPC Tampa the day before where pace of play was horrible (5 1/2 hours), but was great here. Finished in 4 1/2.... More

Played Southern Dunes on 3-12. Really pretty course. Really poorly managed. Play started off the back and we were not notified until one of our two groups teed off on number one. No big deal. Did play Orange County National the day before and they posted signs everywhere of back nine start. Big issue was pace of play. Over 5... More
