First of all, if you're planning on playing golf on Sanibel Island you have three choices (Sanctuary, a private club, is usually not an option). First, you can plan Sanibel Island Golf Club (Old Beachview). The conditioning there is spotty, the layout average, but you may be able to get a good deal later in the day. Secondly, you may...

Fun course. I was told by many people to bring extra golf balls, and that was no joke. If you are a slicer, water will be your enemy. Great setting and maintained. Staff friendly. Finished 18 holes and it started to pour...they won't let you drive the golf carts in the parking lot to your car...

Very clean course, good conditions, beautiful greens but slow play. We kept ourselves entertained with all the amazing wild birds.

We had a unique experience. We went early and had lunch, #10 was really, really backed up. I mean there were 3 or 4 groups waiting to hit. Expectations were very low on my part for a reasonable round, time-wise. Then it rained for 20 minutes... not too hard but you would have thought the lightning siren went off- everybody... More

We have played this course few times during October and in November. This year greens and fairvays have been in really good condition. We recommend!

Just played the Dunes and I thought it was in great shape. They green where very good. If you tend to hook right, bring extra balls. The restaurant is newly redone and very pleasant.We all had a good lunch and they gave us a discount, which helped offset lost balls.

What a treat! This course was not very long but offered plenty of hazards including lots of water, bunkers and OB. We played the tips and it was just under 6,000 yards. The course offers a nice range with floating golf balls to hit in the lake. Trust me it won't be the only time you hit a shot in... More

I've been playing the Dunes for about 20 years.It is a lot of fun and the scenery is just beautiful.Yes the greens need work but it was not the fault of the staff it was the bad weather they received. The fairways were very good.I understand that the course will close for two months so they can make the repairs.... More
