Mystic Dunes Resort & Golf Club: Located just to the south-west of Walt Disney World, Mystic Dunes is a wonderfully natural and excellently crafted golf course. The always absorbing layout offers something a little bit different from Orlando's preponderance of classic country club resort-style courses.
An attractive fusion of swamp land and expansive sandy waste areas, palms and pampas, old oaks and a couple of small ponds in play, characterises the layout. At the par-4 10th and testing island green par-3 11th, tropical-style water features also put in an appearance. The flatness of some holes is contrasted by others that create a more rolling, gently undulating feel. Limited bunkering around some greens puts the accent on your pitching and chipping skills.
Occupying relatively flat, open terrain, the layout also includes some tighter holes lined by old oaks laden with hanging Spanish moss. Sometimes exuding a typical Florida wetland feel, the course also features several linksy dune-like stretches. Limited housing around the course maintains the natural feel.
Pick of the holes: the wonderful par-3 5th, played across open swamp to a green framed by tall oaks. Also noteworthy is the natural par-4 4th, which introduces four railway-sleepered pot bunkers, designed to catch any drives hit right of the fairway as it gently doglegs from left-to-right toward the green.
