Dunedin Stirling Links sprawls across 27 acres of lush, gently rolling hills dotted with tall pine trees and osprey nests. The golf course is located just minutes from Clearwater Beach and the Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks. The layout is a traditional links design that is highly reminiscent of classic Scottish golf courses. The greens are small and well bunkered. They require a fair amount of accuracy, providing a challenging but fair test. Three ponds and a creek offer the occasional water hazard. In addition to the course, the club also offers an extensive practice facility that provides an excellent place to work on your short game skills. The facility includes a 24-station driving range, a large practice bunker, a 4,000-square foot putting green, and a separate chipping green.

It is what it is

I hit the driving range and putting range a few times a week there. The course itself is exactly what you would imagine for a $15 round of golf. It is only a par 3 course but is great for working on mid-range Irons and chipping. The biggest gripe is the layout. If you can find your way around the jumbled up mess that make up hole 6-10 then your are way smarter than me. I found that me and many other golfers were confused on where to go next. The fairways are patchy and range in grass thickness from very thick patches to no grass at all. The greens are inconsistent. Some of them have thick patches of clover that drastically slows the ball down. This is terribly frustrating when the rest of the green is in pretty good shape. I would think of this course as a cheap way to work on iron and short-game play.

Very poor condition

You get what you pay for but this course was in terrible shape. The greens reminded me of shag carpet and the whole fairway was basically a sand trap (no grass or very patchy).

Pace

I have been there several times this year. The course is in rough shape but ok for irons practice. Recently there were 4 players in front of us, two in the cart and two walking with them. The four were using two sets of clubs. After each hole they stood on green chatting while we waited. I had to yell twice to get them moving. Then we jumped holes to get past them. I complained at pro shop mid way....they did nothing to correct this. I will not be back.

Like playing putt putt

Save your money. This was the worst course I have ever seen in FL and I’m almost embarrassed that others may play on it. The “fairways” are straight crab grass and the “tee boxes” were dirt mounds. Don’t even get me started on the greens....

all of the holes are right on top of each other and it doesn’t even feel like golf. A few of the holes are less than 45 feet from Teebox to flag (for ladies). Also, the carts are gas powered which is fine, just a lot louder. There is no “dress code” - we saw people walking the course in gym shorts and flip flops.

Our friends also played this same course about a year ago and a homeless man tried to sell them used golf balls at one of the tee boxes....

Footgolf Course Reserection!

Dunedin Stirling Links Footgolf course has gone through a complete transformation in the last month, they have seeded tee boxes and green that are coming in nicely, stopped over watering the fairways which make for great roll and moved the cups and set them properly below the putting surface and moved them to very appealing and astatically pleasing and fun locations. They have posted direction signage threw out the course and replaced all greens flags. Really a fun and fair set up now. Will bring all my friends, family and other Footgolf club members here. This Dunedin course will make a great Footgolf destination vacation.

WET WET WET

From hole 6 until we finally quit on hole 13, we were blasted by the watering system coming on with no warning. 3 times we were soaked! We tried altering the round to no avail. Left 3 balls on greens that were unretrievable due to the wearing system soaking the greens after we hit the ball. Very disappointed.

Cow pasture..

I really dislike giving poor reviews but in all honesty a cow pasture would have been better. The greens and tee area were absolutely awful.

I would not recommend this course to anyone. Maybe the city of Dunedin should sell the land to a developer for better use.

The gentleman at the pro shop was friendly and helpful and he is not at fault for my poor rating.

Friendly staff...and that’s about it

This course was in the worst condition I have ever encountered at a course. The fairways were worse than a bad rough, the greens were non-existent, flags were missing, and the course was confusing to navigate. The site states the driving range is state of be art...very far from it. The pads are all worn, tees and missing, and the range looks awful. The carts leave a lot to be desired as well. On our first tee, the greens keeper picked up my tee shot from behind the green while he was working around the neighboring tee box...who does that?!?! This course is also used for foot golf so their are large foot golf holes with flags sitting in the middle of fairways and in front of greens. I really wanted to like this place for the price, but it just wasn’t worth it for the conditions.

Small par three course

Spoken to the rep from golf now. Was in a hurry and didn't notice it was a par three course. He should of mention it when he was talking to me. Waste of money. Will not go back there.

Fun Short Course

This is a great little course to work on your short game. Greens are small so your aim makes it or breaks it. Well kept throughout, though there were some dry spots. Overall can't really beat it for $15. We'll be back soon
