Southern Dunes Golf Course

& Country Club

Southern Dunes Golf & Country Club 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. Southern Dunes is not only recognized as one of Orlando’s finest golf courses, but has been nationally ranked as well. 

Southern Dunes, designed by Steve Smyers, opened in 1993  on the site of an orange grove that was killed by frost in the mid-1980's. The soil was pure sand, of a distinctive oranges color. The land , says Myers, "had some nice elevation change to it, and I thought we could do something pretty good there because it was going to be easy to move the material around. We were able to stick the bulldozers off to the sides of the fairways and push and push and push to create mounds, hollows and ridges".

Consequently, Southern Dunes bears a sculpted look. Sections of the course lie below the surrounding land, and there's a marvelous internal flow to the wide fairways that screams for golfers to play bump and run shots. 

If you are vacationing in Orlando and want to play golf, you cannot pass up the opportunity to play one of the best golf courses in Orlando, FL. This dramatic hillside layout stretches over 7,200 yards and features 100 feet of elevation changes which offers spectacular views of the expansive fairways that are flanked by over 180 bunkers. The topographical features include high grasses and ornamentals that form the borders for holes that tumble with the terrain. This spectacular design encourages golfers to use their imagination as the use of the slopes and contours can help maneuver the ball around the massive high-lipped bunkers and closer to the hole. as kept Southern Dunes consistently ranked among the nation's best. Southern Dunes is well known for its large, fast and undulating greens that will test even the most seasoned of golfers. The distinctive look, imaginative design and impeccable playing surfaces of this Steve Smyers masterpiece has kept Southern Dunes consistently ranked as one of the nation's best courses.

Of all the great golf courses in the Central Florida area, 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. However, not very often can locals and tourists find a course in Florida that has such unique topography to it. 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.

Southern Dunes G&CC, located in Haines City just off HWY 27, has become the place well known to locals as a tough and challenging design, and a course that is fair and fun to play time and time again. It's a layout that penalizes poorly executed shots and one that rewards sound golf. The Dunes, as many call it, is a true golfing experience that offers 18 holes of remarkable golf.
