Nice course, great views and plentiful water. Unless you're a straight shot golfer, you'll need extra golf balls. Water isn't the only hazard....my ball landed ten feet from an alligator! What a memorable experience.

We played here a couple of times while in Sanibel and enjoyed it very much. My husband and I are both beginners and so found it somewhat challenging as there's water, water everywhere. Lost lots of balls but hey, we had fun. Huge alligators in the lakes and on the waters edge. Great photo ops and added some excitement. Really... More

Ok this is a fun course and challenging it isn't long, but as the starter said, hit,em straight and you'll do great. There is WATER on EVERY hole but #2. The greens are challenging and it will test your mettle. Bring some extra balls for provisional shots.

I have been visiting Sanibel Island for 13 years now and playing golf at the Dunes for 13 years. Great layout for a shorter course and accuracy is needed. Yes, there is water touching all 18 holes so bring plenty of golf balls. During the cooler weather the alligators sun themselves on the edge of the lakes and had some... More

At US$55 per round, this is very good value. However we were there out of their high season. However the 18th green is not for those who cannot be accurate.

I was vacationing in Sanibel/Captiva for the 4th of July weekend and we went to The Dunes for the celebration. It was a great choice. They were very accommodating to everyone's needs and very organized with the food and beer booths. Everyone was polite and kind. Great for the kids and the DJ was playing music for every taste. Stunning... More

We stayed on the Dunes during our vacation and my partner and father played golf here throughout the holiday. The golf course is excellent, great condition and well maintained with numerous wildlife living in the ponds and surrounding areas! Carts were always cleaned and stocked by the caddy staff. Caleb is a credit to the establishment, who was also beyond... More

Good shape. Friendly people. Alligators gave us something to tell our friends about when we got home. But they were no trouble.
