Short but more water than you ever want to see.

Challenging short course maxing out at 5600 yards. Water in play on all 18 holes sometimes twice on a hole. The course has plenty of area to play your shot if you can block the... read more

Challenging short course maxing out at 5600 yards. Water in play on all 18 holes sometimes twice on a hole. The course has plenty of area to play your shot if you can block the water intimidation from your psyche. Gaters in the ponds and on the shores.

Course was much as I remember from last year. Under new management, course was in good shape but Greens were splotchy indicating repairs in progress. Tee system is changed and somewhat confusing. Staff was friendly but not giving you the key to the cart until just before you are called to the Tee seems a bit juvenile. With water on... More

The course was in good shape. The greens were very nice. It is a short course. 5,600 yards from the back tees par 70, but tough as evidenced by the 128 slope.

We had so much fun playing at the Dunes that we played twice during our visit to Sanibel. The course was challenging with all the water - but not very long - so it was perfect for both of us. We saw so many beautiful birds and so much wildlife on the course - which made it even better. Lots... More

Everyone at The Dunes is so friendly and helpful. In the past, we have experienced some "Grumpiness", but not now. Love this golf course. So beautiful, but challenging. Free drop if your ball lands too close to one of the alligators!

Our round at the Dunes was a lot of fun. A very interesting course ... but challenging if you don't hit the ball straight! As much fun as the golf was the wildlife. Birds of all types, turtles, gators, crocs ... we saw way more on the course than at the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge! More on Sanibel Island in... More

As part of a business event, we played the Dunes Golf and Tennis Club. The course had a lot of water hazards (I think I recall 14 of 18 or 16 of 18 holes). My foursome found it on every hole - but we had a good time. The greenskeeper and crew did a great job preparing the course. We... More

This is on the short side for golf courses but can be very challenging due to water hazards. Fun to play. Lots of wild life on the course that I saw such as Eagles, osprey, and alligators.

I have played at the Dunes GC about 2-3x per year for about a decade. It's always a fun course to play with water on literally every hole. I have have once shot below par, and I have also shot in the 90's so if you are not on your game, this course can bite you! For nature lovers, there... More
