Steve Smyer’s creation at Southern Dunes may be the most unique. Central Florida has an abundance of courses that typify the style generally found in the state. 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 and present holes that truly have distinction. 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.
