We played this course a couple of years ago and suffered through some bad conditions as they renovated. We booked again this year anxious to see the results.

All I can say is it was extremely disappointing. The rough was full of weeds and the bunkers were in poor condition. The greens were in good shape and the fairways were ok. Staff was pleasant and friendly, but overall I could not recommend this course.

Some bunkers have vertical walls, a real challenge to escape. The sand dunes are all over. Tricky layout that can see ball in a bunker with slight error. Very pleasant, enjoyable, scenic. Excellent fairways and greens. Hilly fairways hide the flags and greens posing a real challenge. It’s a unique, different, pleasant experience.

No water available along the course. Tee area is weird and Tee Marker can be better. Colors are invisible or faded. Overall, worth it.

Hadn’t played MD in 3 years or so, and it’s in way better shape than the last time out. The layout is challenging, and it’s an attractive course though it doesn’t have any significantly memorable holes. There’s not a lot of serious trouble — it’s not a penal course if you keep it in the fairway.

But the significant challenge is that the greens are very difficult. Large animals buried under them,. So you have to think of the greens as having zones where you have to place the ball. If you don’t, your score will add up quickly with 3 putts and even 4 putts!

Staff was friendly, though very forward with their politics. Bar and restaurant are large and the food is good.

Pace of play was outstanding, though I was the second group off on a beautiful morning.

Location is great, as MD is on the south side of the metro, very near the theme parks. I wouldn’t build a golf trip around this course, but I would absolutely include it in my rota.

My first time playing the course and it was enjoyable. The fairways were dry even with all the rain that had fallen during the previous week. We had a good pace of play most of the way but waited on several holes for a very slow group ahead.

Greens are very tricky as many have either a false front or a swale with upper and lower tiers. Flags indicated pins were forward but some seemed middle or back.

The fairways were okay but some had dying grass or bare spots but not bad to play on. Some tee boxes were not quite level and some were beaten up. I do hope the management will fix some of these things as this could be a 5-star course.

One drawback is no GPS on the golf carts. I have a GPS golf watch so it is not a big deal but would improve the value. I am a Disney Player's Club member so that's what I compare this course to.

I recommend the course at the right price.

This was the first of 3 rounds played here over a 5 day period (the available Hot Deals were irresistable). The weather featured at least 3 afternoons and nights of downpours in the area. But with other area course conditions being less than ideal Mystic Dunes' were surprisingly ideal. I even called the course the morning before one tee off, expecting something like "cart path only," and there were no restrictions.

The undulating fairways are in immaculate condition, featuring what we call the "Florida roll." The greens were faster than we're used to back home.

The staff were cordial and the restaurant had lunch options readily availabe for quick pickup. We were allowed to go out as a twosome which made pace of play a pleasure.

A shout out to starter Pedro who offered to cart me to my car prior to tee off to get something I'd forgotten.

I highly recommend Mystic Dunes, especially if the Hot Deal tee time is still available the day before or day of.

Good Course but not great. Second review and fairway condition was improved. Greens are green but slow and fuzzy. It’s a great layout but needs some love to get back to where it used to be. There are better manicured course for the price but not layout. It’s a fun track and deserves a look.
