Mystic Dunes Golf Club was designed by PGA Tour Professional and NBC golf analyst Gary Koch. Opened in 2001, Mystic Dunes is a par 71, 7012-yard course layout, unique to Orlando golf courses. Mystic Dunes Orlando golf course consists of two distinctly different layouts that take advantage of the unique topography, offering the golfer a fantastic and memorable experience. The "low country-style" eastern, front nine is reminiscent of classic Carolina-style courses, meandering through native wetlands and marsh areas, bordering oak and cypress forests.
The western, back nine has the characteristics of a British Isles links course, with extensive perimeter mounding and pot bunkers as well as large, expansive, sandy waste areas bordering lush green, rolling, sweeping and perfectly manicured fairways. Water comes into play on just one hole - the extremely scenic and challenging par three #11 waterfall hole. Holes 15 through 18 have been called "four of the best finishing holes you'll find anywhere," according to Golf & Leisure Magazine.
Koch designed the Mystic Dunes to be player-friendly, yet rewarding to the strategic golfer. Almost every green is accessible with run-up shots: instead of bunker-infested greens, the special feature being collection areas characterized by unique "bumps and humps". The course challenges golfers to play it smart off the tee, deliver solid iron shots into the greens, and putt on undulating greens for a true test of golf.
