Great course with lots of water.

We played at 1:00 as a twosome and finished in a leisurely 3 hours. Course is in great shape. Not long, but be prepared to lose plenty of balls in the water!! We will definitely be back.

Golf 1 - Coronavirus 0

This place was great! First I hit some balls into the water range to set the tone for the day! Practice some putting and got out on the course early before my booked tee time. Went out solo which was great with corona/zombi apocalypse going on. The course condition I thought were great! This is my off season and visiting from Chicago I lost 7 balls and shot a 95 but had a blast doing it! Considering I haven’t swung my clubs since October and it’s March I’ll take the 95. The scenery is tops! Saw gators, bald eagles, fish jumping and countless birds! This place was exactly what I hoped it was going to be. I’ll be back before I head back North.

Scenic

This was our first time playing this course. We were pleasantly surprised. As we were early the starter allowed us to play by ourselves which given these times was very comforting.
This is the first time we ever tipped the starter and bag guys not to touch our clubs.
Course is very scenic and a nice layout. GPS on carts and lots of markers to identify distance to water on tees.
I played the back tees which was still challenging with water on every hole. Greens are postage stamps and little slow but if you hit the the flag you can expect the ball to stop abruptly which is a bonus with such small greens. As this was a free round on Golfnow I did not comment on value for the money.
Was nice to see the starter and the pro shop workers wearing gloves and clearly taking the spread of this deadly virus.
We had a new accessory, a bottle of Mr clean disinfectant.
We will be back next year for sure.

A great golfexperience

During our holiday on Sanibel We decided to play Dunes golfcourse. We were lucky with the weather almost no wind. All Homes have water, first nine was shortsen but although a challange. Back nine was tougher, lounger and and more challanging. We enjoyed the layout and the atmospher. It took us 3hours30minutes.
We can really recommend this golfcourse!

Nice mix of holes

Enjoyed the course overall. Lots of water, but there is enough fairway to find and set up a scoring opportunity if you play smart. Greens were in excellent shape. Played 3 rounds from the tips and score improved each day. The only downside was dodging the maintenance crew on several holes during peak times. Looking forward to playing this course again.

Poor condition of fairways.

The front nine is in poor condition and lined by houses. The second nine is much better. The hype on the website makes you think you’ll be in a nature paradise and we were willing to make the drive out to Sanibel. You can play a lot better courses for $90 and easier to get to also. The restaurant was closed for maintenance and the bartender was not friendly to say the least

Dunes Golf & Tennis

Short course but challenging, lots of water. Only hit driver 4 times, lots of lay ups off tees. Greens were in great shape as was the rest of the course. Teed off at 9:00 as a foursome and played in 4 hours, good pace of play. A little expensive but it is Sanibel.

Best course I've played for scenery

Awesome, alligators, flocks of birds dozens of species, fish jumping, flowers, very cool. Course is a bit short but makes up for it with difficult layups and dog legs and water hazards. The greens are very good shape but very nasty alot of slopes and they are elevated.
Would definitely play again.
