Great day in very nice Golf course

We have played this course few times during October and in November. This year greens and fairvays have been in really good condition. We recommend!

Just played the Dunes and I thought it was in great shape. They green where very good. If you tend to hook right, bring extra balls. The restaurant is newly redone and very pleasant.We all had a good lunch and they gave us a discount, which helped offset lost balls.

What a treat! This course was not very long but offered plenty of hazards including lots of water, bunkers and OB. We played the tips and it was just under 6,000 yards. The course offers a nice range with floating golf balls to hit in the lake. Trust me it won't be the only time you hit a shot in... More

I've been playing the Dunes for about 20 years.It is a lot of fun and the scenery is just beautiful.Yes the greens need work but it was not the fault of the staff it was the bad weather they received. The fairways were very good.I understand that the course will close for two months so they can make the repairs.... More

We heard this place had been done over and that the food was really good. All of the above was true. My husband had grouper and I had a hot steak sandwich smothered in onions and mushrooms with melted cheese on top. Absolutely delicious lunch with a beautiful view as a bonus.

I have been visiting Sanibel Island for 30 years and playing the Dunes almost that long. I have looked at many of the reviews posted and feel that the truth lies between the extremes posted here on Trip Advisor. In the past I would have rated the course as very good but at the moment it is average at best.... More

Played today and the greens are poor with lots of sand a patchy greens. The tee markers don't have yardage markers and the tees are not consistent with the score card. Would not pay this money to play the course again. I am told that they are remaking the greens this year . In view of this they should have... More

This course has so many possibilities, but the condition is abysmal. They need to bite the bullet and redo the greens, if nothing else. They charge rates online that suggest a first rate course, and it is totally disappointing. Get rid of the crabgrass on the fairways too. What a mess.
