Course Knowledge: Southern Dunes, unarguably, presents one of Central Florida's toughest and most complete challenges; length, accuracy, power, finesse, putting and course management will all be put to the ultimate test. The fairways are full of rolling hills and sand traps; a tee shot hit to the wrong part of the fairway will often yield an uneven stance for your next shot. The greens are absolutely enormous, very undulating and quite fast. Southern Dunes presents conditions that accurately resemble the kind of course difficulty and conditioning that PGA Tour players play weekly. Southern Dunes was named one of the Top 10 Courses Built in America in the Last 10 Years and is listed among GolfWeek's Top 100 Courses in America. This is a 'must play' golf course for any player who really wants to give their game a good test.
