Mystic Dunes was designed by PGA Tour Professional and NBC golf analyst Gary Koch, and opened Fall of 2001. As a par 71, 7012-yard course, Mystic Dunes' layout is truly unique to Orlando. The "low-country" front nine weaves its way through majestic oaks and pine trees, similar to those courses in the Carolinas, meandering through marsh and wetlands. From the links-style back nine (water found only on holes 10 and 11) with its rolling fairways, bump-and-run shots around the greens and quick putting surfaces, golfers feel reminiscent of the courses of the British Isles. The course challenges golfers to play it smart off the tee, deliver solid iron shots into the greens, and putt on always-consistent greens. The expansive driving range/ clubhouse, restaurant/ bar rounds out the entire "Mystic Dunes Experience."
