Mystic Dunes is a terrific course that had gotten in terrible condition....and I mean TERRIBLE. However....over the last few months there has been really nice progress to making it great again!! The difference from 4 months ago is noticeable improvement. This is a very stylish course with a really nice variety of holes. The finish on 17 and 18 is as good as it gets in central Florida. The staff is exceptional!

Course had aerated greens a week before which we were aware of. However, it appears that the course is lacking routine maintenance - just about every green had a dead, dried out spot and some of the fairways looked like they could use water - a lot of it. Added to the fact that there is a tremendous amount of construction going on between the fairways made for dusty conditions. When the 500 + houses get built and construction is done it might be a very nice course - someday!

We were told that they were building units on the course between some holes, but dust blew incessantly and the houses were being constructed to close at points.

The greens had been punched, were very large, and so unable to judge how they'd be once the sand settled in.

The fairways were in disrepair. The views were lots of dust.

We had no problems with speed of play because obviously we were the only two who didn't realize the course had declined.

It is in horrible condition and I wouldn't play it again for $,25 a hole!!

Highly suggest you avoid this course at all costs.

When we got to the course we were then informed we would have to play the back 9 twice because they were top dressing the front 9. We then proceeded to play since it was 7 am and the 4 of us didn't want to try to find a different course. Every green had been top dressed with sand and never sweep. There was over a quarter inch of sand on them and it was impossible to even putt. We complained and were told to call the golf operation management. I called and spoke to a assistant manager who asked me if I was told about the top dressing when we checked in . When I said we were he stated that we could have not played and this was normal maintenance. The course has lots of problems with on going construction for homes being built, but we have over looked this in the past. We will not be returning, especially after dealing with staff that basically could care less about keeping someone coming back.

I used to love Mystic Dunes. In a city that probably has more golf courses per capita than most every other in America, I would play Mystic Dunes repeatedly. It was a quality layout, challenging, in good shape and a fantastic value.

About a year ago they started bulldozing the wild nature growth between holes and building homesites. While I thought it would change what i liked about the course, it would still be the same great design and upkeep then everything would be okay.

Today I played it for the first time in a few months.... and holy cow Integrity has let that course fall into total disrepair. Almost every green has at least one GIANT area that has burned out and the grass completely gone. It's literally just dirt.

Same with the fairways and tees. Its just all dead, even the nature areas that remain are dead. Everything is dead. I guess it works for them, as it saves money since they dont need a staff to mow the course since nothing grows anymore.

It's awful. Please, save your money, don't play here. Go elsewhere. Im upset to see what Integrity Golf Management Co. has done to my favorite course. Unfortunately, Integrity has quite the reputation of doing this to a lot of local public courses.

Course and paths were advertised as being repaired. Fairways were very bumpy and greens had patches w/o grass. Not bad for a beginning/intermediate player to get out and play at a reasonable price. More serious players would probably be upset at losing strokes due to course conditions

If you pay more than $17 (16 for cart and 1 for golf) you pay to much. There is a lot of construction around the but has bearing on how poor the course is. It is that the greens keeper has no interest in the job or has no money to do the job.

Played here many times over the years and have seen it better it is playable just don't over pay for it.

Greens are in really rough shape, lots of bare patches. Sand traps not raked, tee boxes have tire tracks over them. Yes there is construction happening that affects the front nine, but the lack of maintenance is not really due to that, it just has been neglected for some reason. The course layout is nice but it feels like this course has been abandoned. If the owners work really hard, it might be playable in a couple of years.

Despite losing the course to severe hot, dry weather last season, they are on the rebound. Sure, they are taking advantage of the rebuild to add the housing, but that will help to offset the cost of recovering the course. I played Mar 23 and things were rough but in 2 weeks they have made some significant improvements. With the new grow season, more success will happen. By mid summer things should be back to what they had before the loss of the course. Fairways and tees (done), greens (aerated and seeded beginning), new roads in progress..all make the future good for golfers sooner than later. It is still possible to enjoy a "cheap" round (playing lift/clean/place) on what was and will again be a great track for golf. Enjoy the staff and the clubhouse while you are there...they are trying to make the best from the worst event a course could ever have. See you in the fall!

The housing has nothing to do with the course or the resort. Two different owners. They heed to rake back the course from a third party operator

The course is not in good shape due to the previous head groundskeeper. There is also a lot of construction for future homes. We liked the course layout and would play it again. Because of the course conditions very few players were there and we had no waiting. Played in under 4 hours. The staff was friendly and they said the course will look good again in 6 months.

I have been playing golf for over 40 years and this course is by far the WORST course I have ever played. How this club actually charge golfers green fees to play here is beyond me. They should be COMPLETELY upfront on the condition and work that is going on here and offer FREE green fees for those who wish to try and play at Mystic Dunes. OMG ! there were weeds growing on the uncut greens, massive mud and bald patches all over the greens & fairways. And if that wasn't enough the day my son and I played we had to follow the hollow tining machine around as it ploughed this already disgraceful golf course to pieces.........DON'T play here !!!

Alot of construction going on around and through the course. The attention is focused on the construction projects and golf course has been neglected compared to my previous play at this course. Nice layout for course but I would not play this course again until construction concluded which appears to be a lengthy project.
