Construction all over the course

The last time I played Dunes and Vista was in 2016. The course lay out is still the same but the surroundings are different. Lots of construction for new homes is going on and is disturbing the overall golf feeling. Nevertheless fairways and greens are ok, staff very friendly.

Bunkers not maintained

It was evident that the bunkers had not been raked in quite some time. Otherwise, they seem to be recovering well after losing reportedly hundreds of trees to Sally.

Nice golf course

The greens at this time of the year has some brown spots on some of the greens, but not all. Over all I like playing this golf course.
The staff here are awesome, and as usual Steve, the starter knows how to direct traffic and knows how to please golfers.
