The Dunne’s Golf Course

Have played here several times and it’s always a pleasure playing the course. It’s not that long even from the back tees but it’s not about the length but the layout and strategy required to navigate the OOB and the amount of water hazards on the golf course. Always in great condition with lush green fairways and well prepared tees. The greens are generally small so you need to be accurate with your approach. Did find the greens hard to read and two paced but maybe that was due to the wet conditions being September in Florida. Will hopefully give the course another go when we return in May 2023.

Course is really fun to play. Short yardage but you need to be accurate on most of the holes. I’m from Washington state so it’s fun to play these nicer courses in Florida

Water left and water right

Really unique course. There is more water than land on the property, and the water into play on almost every hole. With good tee shots and approaches the course is very attackable. It’s short enough that you can leave your driver at home. However, water comes into play on every miss.

Short but not sweet

Shorter on the card. Plays longer. You would need a driver on a couple of holes. Def more challenging than S. Island. Bring an extra sleeve in case you lose your a game on a hole or two. Wildlife keeps it interesting. Fun stuff. 1st tee box is to your left. 10th tee area under construction. As well as 18 green where a bridge is being built. Makes access to 18 green a little difficult and slows play.

The Dunes will have me back

What a fun little course. The course is quite short but lots of fun. Lots of holes with forced layups so you have to be strategic and not just blast driver all the time. If you can't hit over water I wouldn't recommend playing here. Lots of shots that require you to carry water. Great course, water on every hole or almost, but not in a scary way (for me anyway.. i tend to hit relatively straight). I will bring family out to come play here. Price is great in offseason. If you're from out of town I wouldn't advise against playing during season even though it will be more expensive. You could play pretty awful courses for a high price so I'd rather play here.

Great Value

Short course but fun having to hit precision shots but still forgiving. Lots of water, you'll lose a lot of balls if you're intermediate or beginner.

The course conditions were great. I would highly recommend and go back again. We wanted to play it again on our trip.

Deceiving and tough track. Not long but challenging

Pace of play was 4 hours or slightly under. Friendly staff. Some of the “locals” complained the pace of play was too slow which caused the rangers to keep telling us to keep up w the group ahead of us. We still had to wait on multiple holes but still finished under 4 hours.

Beautiful course

Felt like we were in Hawaii. Shorter course but very challenging with lots of water everywhere. The course was well maintained and a very good value for the price. Will definitely be back to play again.
