“Just another golf course”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Nice golf course, but greens were extremely hard and slow to putt on. Too expensive for this type of course. Slow play also made it hard to enjoy

“Great Shape!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

The course was in great shape. It was a little hot, but hard to do anything about that in July. There was a Junior tournament happening on the Mountain Course and the staff was great to guide me onto the Dunes course to make for an easier day. Susan W. was awesome.

“A Must Play”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Loved this course. Enjoyed it so much that when I finished I played the front nine of the Mountain course. They didn't charge me for the extra holes. It was already over a hundred degrees. The only downside of the Dunes course is that there is no turn to stop for a beer or food.

“Good but not exceptional”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

This is a decent dunes course that plays to a medium length with most holes being of average difficulty (17 being the exception). My beef about this course is that on most holes the type of grass in front of the green does not allow for a bump and run and given most greens are mounded and hard, it is very difficult to stay on the surface. My adjusted to leaving shots about 100 yards out improved scoring but that kept the driver in the bag for almost the whole round.

“Tough but fair”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Pete Dye at his best. Undulating fairways will keep you on your toes (pun intended).
Get the ball close, cause the greens are slick. Course is in great shape now!! Go play
