This is a real challenging golf course with very interesting holes. The putting greens were in good shape. The fairways were in poor condition and you needed to roll the ball for a lie. The rough was even worse with gaping holes, you needed to move the ball and drop. Still it was a fun day.

Not played the course for a couple of years as the last time I played it was a disaster with the course no better than a building site and the course suffering from the contractors intrusion. Whilst there is still major house construction the new owners have managed to claim back most of the course. The general course condition was reasonable, the greens were true if a little patchy and slow. Overall course in better condition than a number of other local courses. One criticism is that the vast areas of sand (to large to be called bunkers) are no better than a ploughed field and should be marked as FUR because it is impossible to play out of them even if you find your plugged ball. Overall pleased with the progress made and the new owners should be congratulated. The guy on bag drop is a great ambassador for the club and remembered me from 2 years ago. He was extremely helpful as always and should be congratulated for the way he welcomes players. I will certainly play again this year and will be interested to see what further improvements have been made.

Mystic Dunes has a great layout which should be very fun to play. Unfortunately, it has not yet recovered from the years of neglect. New management took over about a year ago,. but many of the fairways have very large areas of just dirt with no grass. Some greens are in good shape, but others terrible. I hope they continue to improve the course and get it back to the condition it used to be a few years ago.

Waited for a little over a year and a half to play this course as it had gone downhill. After yesterdays round, I was pleasantly surprised. The course was coming around and only a couple of fairways needed some love. The greens rolled great but were just a little slow. The layout is very fun and different from traditional Florida golf.

It had been years since I'd played Mystic Dunes as the course conditions left a lot to be desired. We decided that it was time to give it another shot and we were impressed with the progress the new ownership had made. The greens rolled nice albeit slow, and for the most part, the course was in much better shape. I'm sure the green speeds will pick up as time goes on. We'll be back again and it's nice to see this course improving as the layout is very challenging with some truly unique green complexes.

Mystic Dunes didn’t disappoint. The greens are being fixed up after some damage has been done in the past. Pretty typical Florida summer greens. It looked like they were leaving them a bit long to try and fill in... maybe. The fairways were mostly great and the tee grounds were closely mowed and in good shape. We enjoyed the layout and were challenged on several occasions.

For first time players, the scorecard map and map of each hole doesn’t necessarily do any justice to what you will actually play. Several holes I hit a specific club and got to my ball to find out I should have played a much different shot. Do some research before you come out here.

Overall, I would and will play this one again and would recommend anyone who likes a few good challenges to play it again.

Course is in pretty good shape even several weeks after green aeration. Greens can be tricky w undulations.

Front 9 in the open w no shade. Back 9 goes thru tree lined areas w much needed shade. Fairways can be a little thin on some holes. Some tight doglegs. Fun course for first timer. Also nice clubhouse and pro shop.

This is a very nice track. When you arrive, it feels very secluded and upscale. The facilities are great. There is a good restaurant with fresh food. The pro shop is better than most. Fees are pretty good for a tourist town. The course is a unique link style layout. Reviews talked about how the course went down hill for a few years. You can tell by playing that the staff is working hard to get this course back in top notch shape. The fairways aren't great right now, but are still playable. The greens were in very good shape, even after a recent aeration. This is a good course to play.

I use to play Mystic Dunes quite often over a few years ago when it was in immaculate condition and loved it because the layout is incredible. Then Integrity took over management of the course and it became a disaster in very little time. Not sure where the management firm got it's name but it surely did not match. I stopped going because the conditions of the course were the worst I had ever seen on any course. I started reading reviews lately and it seems they changed the property management firm and decided to give it a try again. I have to say they are making great progress on restoring the course. The greens and fairways are coming back and the layout is as spectacular as it was in the past. They had aerated the greens recently so they were playing as you would expect a bit difficult but still reasonable. They have made a lot of improvement around the course extending the concrete cart paths throughout the course. All in all a great place to play once again.

Staff were friendly but the program didn't accept our golfnow.com discount. Although aeration was done recently the greens were so heavily sanded in places the ball couldn't roll through. At some greens the sand was 1/4" thick. Fairways were burned out and dirt instead of grass. Restaurant was slow two of us ate our sandwiches while our third waited for a burger. Having said that the sandwiches were made fresh.

Played 6/11 at noon and was the only one out on the golf course. This is most likely due to the temperature being in the 90's. Course is in good shape and you can see that work is being done to it. The greens were recently sanded but that was not an issue for me at all.

My only issue I had with this course had absolutely nothing to do with the course itself. The Golfnow app is what I use to determine distances from the hole and to keep my score. The issue was that the Golfnow app had the wrong par for several holes. Par 3's on the course were shown as par 5's on the app. I wish i was able to 2 putt for an eagle on a par 5 but unfortunately i do not hit the ball that far.

Would play again.

This used to be a fantastic course a few years ago! Sadly its in terrible condition now, the greens were being worked on like most of the courses at this time of yesr but the problem was the state of the fairways and indeed even the tee boxes! The course was closed when we were here last summer and clearly has not recovered, there is work going on but much more is needed. Pace of play was fine as the course was empty. We got a cheap deal as the greens were being worked on but this is a $15 golf course right now so we overpaid!

Its such a shame to see how far this course has deteriorated, the facilities and course previously were up with the Disney courses and the off course facilities are still up there but it deserves a better course than is currently there. I hope they get it fixed but it will take some time I’m afraid!
