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
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!
Layout interesting, greens undulating but very slow. Course needs some tender loving care.
I have played this course regularly for the past 4 years, and I've seen the good and the bad. There were times when this course was in great condition, but it fell on hard times and was in pretty bad shape. New management has taken over recently and it is obvious that they are committed to bringing it back to the 4 and a half star rating it once enjoyed.
In my opinion, Mystic Dunes is one of the top course layouts in the Orlando area. This course is very playable and I'm anxious to see the improvements over the coming months.
Keep up the good work.
I played back in december and tge course was ok, they were going through management change but i was still pleased. just played in July and could see huge improvement in conditions plus the pro shop was stocked. I would and will continue to come back to play.
Mystic Dunes is on its way back!
I have not played this course for several years due to the change in management and the condition of the course declined. It is on its way back and will start putting this course back in the rotation on the weekends. There are still bare spots in the rough and some fairways, but the greens were nice. A little slow but at least they had grass on them and they rolled true. Hopefully MD will continue to improved to it previous stellar appearance!
Don’t neglect this course like the past owners... make that drive and get the most of your hard earn dollars I promise you will be back to play this lovely layout..!! Never mind the changes just pay attention to the beauty of a Florida course in the summer and I’m sure there will be no disappointment...
I’ve played over a dozen courses in Orlando and felt like I was ripped off , but today I got my moneys worth.... From the time I pulled in parking lot and checked in i felt like royalty... Some fairways had spots, but for the most part the course is in Great summer condition.. The club house was SUPER friendly and sooooo helpful that I can’t wait to play it again this weekend.... FYI don’t waste your money on Disney over priced courses just make that trip to mystic I promise you won’t be disappointed from 1st to the 18th green you will be challenged....
Mystic Dunes - Such Potential
This is a course that with some good care over the next couple of years could be a great course. The design of many of the holes and greens are superior to a lot of other courses in the area in that they have some real character. Very much links in design with some challenging tee/approach shots. It is a course that is being reborn after a bit of neglect but don’t let that put you off - it is well worth the green fee and far more interesting than the much more expensive Disney Magnolia. This is one of those overlooked courses due to its history over the last few years but if it is looked after it is definitely one to play. The only criticism I would make is that the most welcoming and helpful person we met was the girl on the drinks cart, who in the absence of the starter guided us to the first tee following her cart - or at least was trying to when the starter shouted to us, having finally appeared from somewhere behind the clubhouse. No pleasantries or apologies just “I need to see your receipts”. Give the starters job to the drinks girl or find someone with that ‘Disney-type’ welcome.
