Southern Dunes is one of the best public golf courses in Orlando, Florida and has
been Ranked #6 in Golf Digests "Best Courses in the State" of Florida.
The course is not only recognized as one of Orlando's finest golf courses, but has
been nationally ranked with 4 ½ stars by Golf Digest.
Southern Dunes bears a sculpted look with sections of the course lying below the
surrounding land. There is a superb internal flow to the wide fairways that screams
for golfers to play bump and run shots with 180 bunkers, including ten at the par
3 Eleventh alone, to form a molten, bubbling surface that demands thoughtful navigation.
It's not very often that locals and tourists find a course in Florida that has such
unique topography. This dramatic hillside layout stretches to over 7,200 yards and
features 100 ft. of elevation change, large undulating greens, massive high lipped
bunkers, dunes that are covered with high grasses and ornamentals, which form borders
that tumble with the terrain.
Five sets of tees welcome golfers of all skill levels to enjoy risk/reward opportunities
through extensive mounding and strategically placed bunkers. The par-3 holes play
down hill giving golfers beautiful views of greens . There are five par-4 holes that
stretch more than 420 yards from the back tees and three that play less than 380
yards long. The shorter ones make golfers play smart off the tee and with the approach,
while the longer ones call for some muscle to get the ball on the putting greens
in regulation. The par-5's allow for some mistakes from the tee box, however, these
holes offer tough risk/reward opportunities for the player trying to get the ball
on the putting surface in just two shots.
The Dunes, as many call it, is a true golfing experience that offers 18 holes of
remarkable golf with rates as low as $35/round. Rental Clubs available are available
at the Clubhouse where you can also grab a spot of lunch or a drink. It's worth
noting that no metal spikes are permitted at the course. Read more at www.SouthernDunes.com
