The course has improved a lot since 2 years ago. The fairways still need work but it’s looking a lot more green. We were disappointed last time we played due to the ongoing construction but now it’s cleaner, cart paths have been replaced and visually much better. The greens are slow but run true. Always enjoy playing this course as it is an interesting layout but look for hot deals!

This course was,I repeat WAS, a feast of nature...not anymore.

Development is happening on all holes except 12,13,14,15....the course isn't being squeezed by new main roads,access roads ,new entrances entrances and developments/housing.

Course is being poorly maintained.

What a shame.

Played this course for years and other than the last 2 holes (loaned with property and roads) it was beautiful.

Now the course surrounds have been developed for new roads,entrances and housing...it's a complete mess.

All attention seems to be on development and the course condition Has deteriorated massively.

Even when the housing is complete this course will have been ruined....unfortunately.

Exactly the same is happening at Eagle Creek...be warned.

This course is challenging but very enjoyable. The greens were nicely kept. They had previously aerated but that did not take away from the course. We found it very picturesque and beautifully maintained. Would not hesitate to play here again.

We played Mystic Dunes this week and really enjoyed the course. Friendly staff, nice clubhouse and 1st class restaurant.

The course was in good shape and wavy rain day before really helped the freshly aerated greens.

Mystic Dunes good value and this course has great potential to be a top course in Sarasota.

We played this course for the first time. The course is in tough condition with little to no grass in the fairways and tee boxes. The greens were in good shape but goofy. Many of the greens belong on a mini golf layout. Also, we followed a five some playing a scramble. The pace of play was terrible, with little help from the course crew.
