Beautiful course with tons of water. Most tee shots require a lay up. I loved playing the course. The staff are extremely helpful and course is in great shape.

This course has a great layout with a lot of challenging water features. Well thought out design that provides a lot of risk reward style shots that include water. The course is fairly spread out and would be a distance to walk. Typical flat Florida course but it is spread out between holes. Would recommend this course and th Tennis facility.

The Dunes is a fun course and one that I highly recommend to anyone visiting this part of town. The course is on the shorter end. Roughly 5600 yards from the tips, but don't discount it. It may sound short but if you are not accurate and controlled, you will be swimming, a lot. It is a great challenge with the irons and keeping your driver in check. I loved my round, I will absolutely be back. The course was in great condition, greens looked great and rolled well.They have some tricky greens so be prepared. What it loses in distance, the course gains in strategic bunkers, water, and undulating greens. The tee boxes were filled in and nicely kept. Some very memorable holes here which you will have a lot of fun with.The clubhouse was really nice, looked like it was brand new. The cost was a little high given they charge $8 for a yardage book. The staff was very nice, everyone was welcoming and the started gave me a quick rundown about the course before I teed up. They also have a range that is very unique. You hit down range into water, I have never seen that before. Plenty of wildlife for people who like that, white sand bunkers and new carts. Sounds like a recipe for a course I would enjoy. There are a lot of homes on the course, some of which are only a blade away from paying for a new window. This course will give you anxiety if you get nervous when homes are near. Give it a try, you will have fun and its a great test. I recommend it.

The Dunes is a beautiful course I've played on prior trips to Fla. The staff has done a remarkable job cleaning up following Irma (which turned inland just before reaching Sanibel relatively sparing the island).

I was surprised how good the course condition was. Great Staff - they go out of way to see you have an enjoyable round. I've played this course once or twice a year for the past 6 years.

Pace of play was slow because of 4 some that was 2 groups in front of us. Teamed up with the person in front us and behind us and was still held up. If you only hit it 175 yards at the most don’t play from tees in front of the back especially with the wind. Fun course

Most holes are very tight & mistakes are not forgiven. Leave your driver in the bag on most holes, as I learned the hard way. Course was in nice condition but recent heavy rains made everything very soggy & difficult to hit off tight fairway lies. Challenging greens very hard to read.

Two couples played. The men played from the back tees and the women the front. We had a fun day. The course was tight and required good shots to avoid the water. There were beautiful houses around the course.

We enjoyed the day and went to the Bubble Room for dinner after the round.

A friend and I played and had the first T-time of the day. The conditions were good and the course played fairly. Tee selection is important and will affect your ability to score. I am a 20 handicap and we played Tee 3 which distance wise looks short but with water in play on many holes it worked great for us. We played in under 3 hours. The staff is great.
