We liked all the natural habitat and the layout was great in that there was adequate space between greens and the next tee box. They have large greens that read true and they were protected by lots of beautiful white sand bunkers.

A great place to play. So much so we went back and played it the next day.

The staff was very friendly and helpful explaining everything.

I enjoyed playing the course but it needs some work. The rough was really rough, not golf course quality. I was told the course had been closed and was just reopening. The greens were in good shape with the exception of only one that had major repairs underway. I think that by sprint 2018 the course will be much better and ready for play.

Course had just reopened a few weeks ago and is under new management. We found some tee boxes on the back 9 were not mowed in what looked like a week as they were barely distinguishable from the surrounding grass. Greens were long and slow - patchy in some places. Overall for the price staff was very helpful. The course probably needs a few more weeks but should be very nice come the first of the year.

Learned Mystic Dunes was under new management and newly opened again. Golf course is nice condition except for a few places on greens and a few in the fairways. Pro Shop had nothing in it, but I am sure that will come with time. People were hospitable and pace of play was great.

They do not have a level tee box on the entire course. There is no reason to have your feet uneven or have a ball below or above your feet on a tee box. Some greens were fine but many were in need of repair and one green had sod in two large patches that were not even or the same speed as the rest of the green. After 5 hours my playing partner and I drove off the course as the waiting was unbearable. We completed 15 holes.

Haven’t played in many years but wanted to give it a try because of new management. Good deal from golf now but price reflects the course conditions. The new company has achieved great strides in refurbishing the course but looks like it will require another year of growth. The layout is fun and if you get a great rate give it a shot - I’m sure prices will go up with improving conditions.

I played the course just a few weeks after they reopened it. The clubhouse was empty not even a logo ball to sell. It shows this course came very close to be dismantled. The new owners seem very interested to bring this course back to the same level it was years ago. According to people I played with on other courses during the weak it was in very poor shape before they closed it so it means a lot of improvements have been done so far it only looks good for the future. I will definitely go back on my next trip to the area in February.

Played here a couple of years ago and am happy to say I am glad we went back for a return visit today. You can see the work that has been done to improve fairways and greens which will continue to improve as time goes by. Very slopey greens make for some tough to read putts especially downhill. A couple of lovely par 3's over water are the best holes on the course.

Would recommend a visit especially using a Hot Deal

Went back to Mystic Dunes after not playing for over a year. Nice to see it getting back to where it once was. Course was in very good shape, greens were a little slow, but compared to last time (bare spots everywhere) I played, tee boxes were good, and fairways in very good shape. The staff was very friendly, played alone as my second didn't show. But was able to keep pace with twosome in front of me. Will definitely be putting Mystic Dunes back into the rotation.

I like to play this course. It's pretty challenging with all the sand and the rolling greens. I got a hot deal for this course and it was WAY worth the money! It's winter time so hard to be lush but found the greens and fairways in decent shape. I'd play it again.

I first played the golf course about 10 years ago, it was a pretty good test of golf and in great shape. After playing the course over the past few years, it was the price that was the deciding factor. Although the layout is still a good one, the conditions were not up to par! Conditions on Saturday were pretty good except for the demonish pin placements!!!

The course is in the middle of a construction site. Currently building 500 new houses. We were surrounded by heavy equipment, and at times crossing through busy work areas. The course in areas was showing signs of the dry period and needs some time to recover. Good layout friendly staff but the course condition is only just average.

Mystic Dunes golf course needs attention. New home development is causing some somewhat challenging directions is getting from hole to hole. It appears that when finished, golf carts will cross a 4 lane paved roadway several times.

Green were somewhat burned out, but work was being done on fertilizing. Fairways have developed several different kinks of grass. On our back nine (holes 1-9) all the tee markers had been removed, apparently for proposed work. Would have been better if tee markers were removed just before work commenced.

Wooden bridges had wood overlays installed in traffic area, but they were very deterioted.

Had played golf course before, and always thought it was in good condition. This is no longer the case, however price of golf has been reduced to reflect current condition.

Thought that price of practice range balls was high $6.50 for bucket of 40 balls.

Residential construction on the course results in terrible course conditions. Tee boxes with weeds and crab grass added to the disappointment. To top it off, the day I played they decided to top dress the greens. The layout of the course is nice, but the conditions will be sub par for the next two years.
