I read a lot of mixed reviews prior to playing this course, therefore, went into my round with maybe subpar expectations. I really enjoyed my round. I thought the fairways and greens were in good condition and enjoyed the layout of this course. There is a lot of potential for this course to be great and it is easy to see they are putting in their work to make this place a great experience. The only negative that I could say is there is a lot of new homes being built especially on the front nine. I this did not stop me from thoroughly enjoying my round and would definitely play here again. If management keepa up the good work this place is only going to get nicer!

Great value. Course was in great shape. Had a lot of rain lately so rough was a little high which results in possible lost ball on an errantshot. Other than that, all was super. Fairways and greens in very good shape.

Mystic Dunes Coming Back!

We've played Mystic Dunes 6-8 times over the past 8-10 years, so we've seen it in its pristeen conditions, and we've watched deteriorate thru the past few years with all the construction going on.

We last played the course back in July, and after that round, we told ourselves we wouldn't being going back,,, at least for a long time.

Well, I had thought I had a GolfNow deal to use up, so we booked a tee time on Sunday 9/2/18.

And though the rain was not kind to us that day, we were pleasantly surprised that the course conditions are returning to how they've been in the past. All the tees, fairways, and greens had nice full grass. There's parts of the rough that were spotty and needed some ground repair, but that's par for the courses around here this time of the year with all the rain.

Defintely glad to see this fun layout coming back into playable conditions again!

First time playing in 4 years, coming back

I have played this course several times between 2013-2014. I have also played pretty much every course worth playing in Orlando. It was always in variable condition back then, seldom in great condition, but usually respectable. Occasionally the greens would be superb, but the property is so vast they struggled to keep up. I understand it was once pristine, though.

Well, the last time I played this course was Dec 2014.The condition wasn't the best, I remember thinking. But enjoyable.

Played recently and it was 80% as good as it was the last time I played it, probably 65% as good as I've played it at its best - which is FAR better than I expected (although, I had surveyed the course the day prior to booking).

This course will NEVER have the same visual appeal it once did with all the construction and new houses, but I wasnt as put off by it as I thought. The fantastic layout remains, and even after they have built more houses around it that will hold true.

It can never be the mystic dunes of old, but if they can get the condition back to how I've played it in the past, or better - it will once again be my favourite track in Orlando.

Southern dunes doesn't have a layout this good, but they have the condition. I have always maintained that if this place just got the condition up a bit (back in 13/14) it'd be the best course in Orlando.

It was always my favourite course, and I look forward to that being true once again. Keep up the great work!

Some additional notes: Practice green is basically non existent, as is the chipping area - range not looking its best either. Those areas are 30-50% of what they once were at their worst. They also no longer give you balls pre round (which I'm pretty sure they used to) - one of only a couple in Orlando to do this. They also stopped doing the really cheap replay rate (which I never took advantage of sadly). However, if it means the condition will get back, I'm OK with these downgrades

Nice layout, Ok conditions but needs work

This course definitely could be really nice but currently it's below average in my opinion. I wouldn't pay more than 25 for a round based on the conditions now. The fairways are patchy and the greens are recovering. I stopped stressing over putts quickly because the ball just doesn't roll true. A lot of would be ponds were dry as well.

Play it if you get a good deal under 25 otherwise there's plenty of good golf in the area.

Gary Koch should be embarassed!!

Ask pro at checkin what should I know about the course and he replies "greens recently punched, play to a level portion". I then get to hole 4. put a drive on the right side of fairway over hill and find my ball plugged in mud from the course being torn up for hopefully repair. and this continued for a # of holes. How disappointing, plus the remainder of the majority of the fairways were sparse and covered with unfilled divots. Since I work at a golf course, I know I or our staff would NEVER send out someone, especially when asked, to play those conditions!! Should be embarrassed!!

Review of Mystic Dunes

Having recently acquired a golf vacations business, I am trying to play as many of the leading Central Florida courses in order to build a recommendation portfolio for potential clients. Having played other courses such as Celebration, Falcon’s Fire, Lake Buena Visa, Champions Gate, Reunio+++ I realised that I had not given Mystic Dunes an opportunity due to usually much higher green fees. As the course was under reconstruction, I found an offer which provided me with value for money access to review whether the course would be worth the premium. I must say I was surprised and delighted with the experience. Staff were friendly and helpful, facilities were first class and the layout of the course first class. I will certainly return again once the landscaping upgrades are completed and hope to include the course in my business portfolio in due course.

An enjoyable day’s golf - thanks

Big turnaround

We took this course out of our weekend rotation a little over a year ago because conditions were not good and getting worse. This weekend we decided to give it another try and we sure are glad we did. The new management is doing an excellent job. The greens were beautiful and the rest of the course was in good shape. Facilities and staff are also very nice. We look forward to returning soon! Great value for the money!
