- The phenomenal Mystic Dunes Golf Club opened in the summer of 2001 and is located in the heart of the Disney area. The course was designed by PGA Tour player and NBC golf analyst, Gary Koch. Challenging yet fun, this course consists of two distinctly different layouts that take advantage of the unique topography. This is a picturesque golf course with some forced water carries and very challenging greens. 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.
