The 18 holes of the Southern Dunes golf course our open to residents as well as the general public, though residents can book games on a daily basis and you can book your round up to 90 days in advance through their online booking system. If you do book online, you can save $10 per player by doing so.


The course winds its way between the villas and has an iconic hillside layout that is not only dramatic but stretches over 7,200 yards and incorporates 100ft of elevation changes – something that is rare in Central Florida.


The club house not only contains the amply stocked bar, but also a restaurant that is open Monday to Saturday with a standard breakfast and lunch menu with bar snacks available in the evening. On Sundays there is a buffet breakfast that features omelettes and waffles cooked to order in front of you as well as a wide range of fruit, cereals and everything you might want in a full cooked breakfast (minus the black pudding). On Friday and Saturday evenings the restaurant also serves a full dinner menu. There are television screens around the bar that show a wide variety of sports from Monday Night Football to Golf, Motorsport, Cricket and even Soccer creating a relaxed atmosphere that is suitable for all the family to enjoy.


The club house hosts a wide range of events all year round from New Years’ Eve to quiz nights. Be sure to check with the staff as to what is on whilst you are visiting and be sure to book tables to avoid disappointment.
