Dunes Golf Club
Several years back, this was one of the top courses on Florida's Nature Coast. It was closed for a while and reopened. It needs a lot of work. The fairways are very hard and the grass does not grow. The greens are fine, but, were not cut or rolled the day I played.
I hope they get the course back to where it was several years back. I think it will be a great course to play.

Nice course gone to pot
This is a really nice piece of property and an excellent layout. Unfortunately it is in pretty sad shape. Weeds everywhere. When I played there were only a few cars in the lot. Chicken and egg problem - people won't play unless it's in better shape. But I guess they can't afford to get in in shape unless more people play.

The course is a real challenge even from the white tees--we played the next tee back and the course whipped us. The course is not in god shape. The fairways have lots of areas where the grass has not filled in leaving some very poor lies. The greens are hard and very fast resulting in "table-top" putting conditions. Worth $20 but not more untill conditions improve.

Fun course to play
Course is a very fun layout . Fairways were firm and need a little more grass but it reminds me of links courses conditions. Greens rolled pretty well. This is not your plush country club course but a great layout and fun to play .

I have played this course previously about two years ago but the condition deteriorated so I was pleased too see that it was now improving. THe course has a good mix of holes and would suit those who like wide fairways but the fairways are lined with waste areas so you are penalised. Would recommend playing and do not think you will be disappointed,

How to explain the dunes. Has the potential to be one of the best courses in Florida and from past reviews, it sounded like it was used to be there. The bad: The fairways were in overall eh condition. Some good, most were less then average. Greens were really spotty. Extremely fast but a lot of sand/brown/dead spots. Crab grass on the greens and on the edges. Tee boxes were in average condition. The good: great layout and a truly a unique course. All four par-3's had great views and were extremely challenging. You will get to a tee box and say wow to yourself when you see the view. If they put in the $$$ to clean up the fairways and greens then you have one of the best courses in central Florida. The condition they have it in now, it's a shame.

ONCE GREAT COURSE GOES TO POT
I played this course several years ago right after it was remodeled and it was great! I was surprised to see it offered for 10 bucks on golf now, but it was a last minute tee time and it appeared they were going to hook me up with someone as the time was good for only one or two players. I got there early enough to hit a few balls off the dirt at the driving range, then played three holes by myself before I turned around and left. the fairways were poor and the greens had what appeared to be st Augustine grass growing on them. If I had paid 25 I would have demanded my money back!

All things considered... Not too bad.
Fun layout if you like links style golf with lots of waste areas. Challenging course, plenty long from the back tees. Conditions are marginal right now but could be worse. A few bad spots on the greens.
