Great Island Golf

This is a super neat course on Sanibel Island. The layout is very unique due to the courses short nature. Don’t let the length fool you. Shot placement is key to having a fun day. The course was a blast and absolutely beautiful. I actually played the course twice and both days pace of play was fantastic! The staff was friendly as well. If you’re in the area I would definitely check them out.

Great challenge

Was the first group out on a Saturday morning and played in under three hours. Water, water, everywhere. A great experience in course management. Played with regular players with plenty of local knowledge, which helped immensely. The course was in great shape, a little wet, but it was first thing in the morning. The par 3's are attackable and the few par 5s are reachable. The staff was friendly and informative. Masks required in clubhouse.

Loved!

As I approached the first tee, someone asked me if I had ever played here before…. I said no, but was excited to play. They said, well, there’s more water on this course than land so hit ‘em straight and play smart! Needless to say, I was happy I brought extra golf balls, knowing many would find the drink! However, it was the complete opposite of what I thought… great lay out, conditions and I only lost 2 balls. Had my best round, ever… with a 20+ handicap, I was expecting to shoot in the low 90’s. I shot a 76! 100% legit! I was hitting drives and approach shots like I’ve never hit them before! So much fun and can’t wait to play again!

Short, sporty

Warren is the friendliest starter we've met in SWFL. Very knowledgeable able the course. We played 18 on a Sunday morning in under 3 hours! A foursome was kind enough to let us play through on 14.

Water? what water?

Dunes was a great outing! Water hazards on most holes if you have a controlled shot no problem, there were some risk reward shots but not worth the splash! Friendly staff and good selection of treats as well as libations. Will definitely play this one again!

Dunes Golf Course

Loved the course.
Fairways are green and in good shape..
Greens in great shape, and can be challenging with slopes.
The rough is thick Bermuda grass. It is best to keep it in the fairway.
Lots of birds and wildlife.
I will be back.

Water Challenge

This is a challenging water hazard/ sand trap placement course. Not the longest yardage, but more than makes up in difficulty. Great time!! A bit of a rush on early tee times. Need to pair up more 4-somes
Watch out for gators-lol!!
