“Bring a lot of extra balls!”

The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club
Reviewed 2 September 2017

It is a lovely course with water everywhere. We played on the 30th after all the rain and it was in surprisingly good shape - the greens particulalry. We have played the course a number of times over the years and have frequently seen gators - not this time though.

Marylou at the bar is a lot of fun and very helpful. If you like a bloody mary ask her to make one for you.

This is not your *cow pasture pool* course. The course has a water hazard on every link - sometime two. I made par and thought I was the king of the world because all the strokes worked and the ball was dry. Uh... It was par for that one hole - the course eats balls if you can't really, really control them.

The 13th is the ball eater. But it's now my favorite after so many attempts. This is , by far, the best course I have ever played - even if it beats me up and eats my golf balls.

Great golf course. A lot of water. Beware of the alligators and wildlife. Had drinks after our Round of golf. MaryLou is wonderful. Very friendly and makes a mean Bloody Mary. Definitely will be back for golf and cocktails.

Nice course. A nice alternative to an executive par 3. Short course but challenging. A good target golf experience. Play can be a little slow (I think the average age of everyone I saw the day I played was 85) but I give one of the rangers credit for asking the group ahead to speed it up! Never before have I seen that. Worth the effort to get to the island to play here. Staff couldnt have been more friendly. Well organized. Hitting balls into the lake from the range is always a kick.
Will return next time I am in town.
