A little sad. Not worth the drive or the money (at any price).
My reviews are generally pretty forgiving, and I don't like to be negative about any round of golf. Unfortunately there is very little positive to say about The Dunes in Brooksville. We only met one staff member, and she was working the desk, the beverage cart and the little restaurant, and she seemed nice enough. The golf course itself is in the worst shape of any I have played in the area. It is almost like it has been closed, and they reopened without putting any effort into making it playable. They have a sign saying they are under new management, so this could actually be the case. The fairways have very little grass, and they are quite bumpy. The greens are very long, and they have a lot of weeks growing in them. The clubhouse is pretty spartan, and the pro shop has almost no merchandise in it. If they are still in business next year (I would be a little surprised), you might give them a try, but keep your expectations low. We played very inexpensively through our Golf Now booking, and we both agreed it was not worth driving there to play for free. Having said all this, and giving you fair warning, I wish them the best, and hope they can make a go of it. I hate to see any golf course go away because people depend on it for their income. If you want to make a contribution to their future success, by all means give The Dunes some of your business, just don't come away mad, just a little sad.

Great layout for sure! The condition of the course was terrible. Got a great rate and would play again. It is sad that the amount of play does not support the maintenance needed to keep it in good shape. Hope things turn around. A real gem of a layout!

Greens were in much better condition than expected since the course was closed for a while. Fairways had some bad spots but easily corrected by playing preferred lies. The sand was quite good. Well worth the discounted price to play

Striving for improvement
Last played this course in the late 1980's to early 90's. Back then it was in awesome shape. I saw pictures from last year of four foot high weeds covering the fairways. A great deal of improvement has been made since then, but still needs some work. Great value and challenging. Enjoyed my round.

Best Golf Deal in America !!!
The Dunes is a true dilema of extreme magnitude ... this course is jinxed because of LOCATION ONLY ... if this course were anywhere south of Weeki Wachee like Clearwater ... oh my !!!! ... only World Woods is a better course and it's location is just as bad ... I have played all the "so called" Tampa's finest and Sarasota's gems too and I always come back to The Dunes ... why ? ... PRICE and VALUE and I live in Pasco County ... $11 to play this course on Saturday or Sunday ? ... YOU go elsewhere and you are wasting your money unless the drive is TO FAR ... if the drive is possible ... GO TO THE DUNES or World Woods only ... The Dunes is the BEST VALUE superstar golf course in the Tampa Bay region and the course conditions are good enough to justify a 4 STAR RATING because of the layout and price ...$ PRICE $... did I say PRICE $$$ ???? ... BEST IN TAMPA BAY ... Course is one of the greats in all of Florida and yes it could be nicer but that's ok .... for $11 this course is a SUPERSTAR just as it is ... if you "doll it up" it wouldn't be $11 ... it's AFFORDABLE !!! ... you will see me at World Woods now and then when I'm STEPPING UP to impress my friends or visitors however I am at The Dunes 98% of my GOLF MONEY $$$$... University Park, The Legacy, Wentworth, Lake Jovita are ok ONLY ... and EXPENSIVE !!!! ... if you haven't tried The Dunes or World Woods you are getting ripped off and especially NOW that the rates are the lowest all year ... Brooksville golf will always be the KING of TAMPA BAY but that drive ... oh boy

The course layout is amazing. Course condition is worse I've ever played. Only cost $10 so not too disappointed. Wouldn't be surprised if the course is closed in days. Could have been a fantastic day but all weeds, minimal grass and partial greens made it pretty bad.
