Great course, short but tough. Better be accurate and have some luck. I never lose a golf ball but on The Dunes I must have lost a dozen balls! Course is in great shape, starter is on top of his game, on Thursdays they start groups off from number 1 and 10, so that caused a delay when we made... More

There was water on every hole and I lost plenty of balls. The course was well maintained and we saw a gator sunning itself. My ball landed about 15 feet from the gator and I decided to just move along and not mess with it! I had a great late lunch at the club house. Good time.

Water comes into play on nearly every hole, so you need to be accurate. Once I started hitting irons off the tee, my score came around. Overall a very nice local course and, while there are homes around the course, I never felt like they were that much in play.

Excllent course with water in possible play on every hole. Course is relatively short, but requires some thinking and certainly some shot-making. It was in excellent condition when i played 3 times in February. My scores improved each time I played. Course was full each time I played but the play kept moving throughout the round.

Played here over Christmas with a twosome. Rented clubs which were fine. Course name is very deseeding the Marshall told us that 85% of the course is water. I believe it because I lost more balls in one round then I have in the last five years. I am a 10 handicapper and there was no way I was going... More

Don't let the review title fool you, I enjoyed my round of golf here. After reading the other reviews I was prepared to lose balls and I did. Even with all the penalties, I shot a very good score from the Gold tees. Course was in very good shape, staff was friendly and helpful. It was crowded but we were... More

This is a course with water on every hole. It can be a great golf challange but the course was not in the best condition. If you play it please buy a strokesaver. In our booking at golfnow.com it sad that GPS was included. That was not the case since the club stopped using GPS last year. There is no... More

While I am reluctant to write a review on one item, the Dunes needs to get credit for having the best fish sandwich ever. As a person who hasn't had red meat for almost 25 years, I have tried different fish dishes, sandwiches and tacos everywhere. This fish sandwhich is a five inch square, one and one-half inch thick, perfectly... More

The course was good but the clubhouse and all the inside amenities were under construction when I went. Hope it is done when I go back next time.
