REVIEW:
GolfTest USA had the opportunity prior to the PGA Show in January to play several of the top courses in the Orlando area. Southern Dunes Golf & Country Club was on our short list and while it is a little outside the city limits it was worth the drive. Steve Smyers is the course architect and he went to great pains to make sure Southern Dunes offered a real challenge to all skill levels of golfers. There are so many bunkers on the course that we think even Tiger would have a difficult time not finding at least a few during a round. That just added to the fun and frustration that we experienced with each shot we made. You really need to have all your shots in your bag playing this course. This is diffidently not your typical Florida golf course and that’s a good thing. The course was in excellent shape from tee to green. We would welcome the chance to play here again and hopefully we would make sure to bring our “A” game.
