Nice Donald Ross track
First time playing and I was pleased. Nothing terribly difficult, except for typical Ross greens. I would play again and recommend.

A hidden gem though course conditions were a little rough due to heavy rain the previous game.
The Rangers were cool, kept the pace nicely without being rude.

Old course in need
I played Dunedin because it was a Donald Ross design from 100 years ago. I don't think that anything has been done to keep its beauty. The fairways are worn and dusty and the greens need help and resurfacing. I got to play 13 holes before the rains came and normally I would be disappointed I could not finish but I wasn't as I felt sorry for Donald as they have not respected his design by keeping it up. The course was filled with players, so I guess they are just milking the course until it completely falls apart.

Course well groomed.
The weather was cold and windy. Would have been more enjoyable in warmer weather. The fairway were cut very tight, made it difficult to hit irons. Greens were in great shape considering it's the winter season.

Solid layout with good greens
This is a traditional parkland type course. Conditions were quite good considering the moderate price. A couple of holes on back nine were very wet and I understand this is common. The greens were very good and larger than on some Donald Ross courses I have played. There are fewer houses and less water than on many Florida courses. I will play there again.

I have to admit my opinion is biased by pace of play issues. We booked a 2 pm tee time and knew it would be tight to get in 18 holes by 6 pm sunset. Due to the backup our 2 pm was closer to 2:30. For the front nine as we came to the tee box there would have be a 4 waiting To tee off, a group in the fairway and another group on the green. Never hit 2 shots in a row without an extended wait. The ranger kept on reassuring us it would loosen up, it never did. When we made the turn at 5:30 there were two groups of 4 waiting to tee off, a group in the fairway, and a group just getting on the green, we gave up, paid for 18 only got 9. Can't enjoy a course when you have to sit for 5 minutes before every shot.

Nice old Ross design
I learned one thing that I will never do on this course again, and that is to play later in the day on the weekend. The course was packed full of beginners with no golf knowledge or etiquette.
It was a nightmare of slow play and I only finished 14 holes in 5 hours before I ran out of light.
That aside it was a neat old design and I will definitely go play again earlier in the day when the members are out playing at a good pace....def give it a try!!

Excellent historic course/Excellent value
Challenging for a 15 handicap. Elevated greens and long from the whites. Traps were in great shape, but unfortunately players were not fixing ball marks, so greens were a little rough. Not the clubs fault. Loved the water on the back nine. Couple from Cleveland and gentleman from Toronto fun to play with. This will be my home club while spending winter in Dunedin. Nice course, nice staff, a very nice day of golf..
