The course was in great shape, no driving range was a little disappointing. Because of the time of year there were a lot of bugs>

Although I've golfed at Palmetto Dunes many times in the past, I had forgotten how many fairway bunkers guard many holes on the Fazio course. This didn't bother me but played havoc with my wife's shaky golf game. We should have played the Hills course or the Trent Jones course. We did have a great time. I'd recommend getting tee... More

From the moment we pulled up the great experience began! Richard pleasantly greeted us at our vehicle. He took our clubs from our car and directed us to the Pro Shop. There Chris happily checked us in and gave us some helpful hints to making our way around the course. Upon completing our round Al greeted us with a smile.... More

Nice course. Plays longer than stated yardage. A nice test of golf. Today was cart path only,and it wasn't really necessary.

My favorite of the three Dunes courses. Greens had been aerated about 5 days before which we knew in advance from looking at website and calling course. Still very playable. Lot of sand and most greens elevated. Great pace of play and great staff.

We played this course during our vacation (booked through the talented Lisa at Beach Bum Vacations!) to Palmetto Dunes during July and enjoyed the course, however be aware that there is very little shade so bring lots of water to stay cool! Great beginner - intermediate course. Golf carts available (no gps in carts).

I visited the Fazio golf course on a business outing this past week. We thoroughly enjoyed the course. More so, we were very impressed with the service and knowledge of the island that Karen had to offer. We were amazed and entertained watching her go from cashier to bartender to cook without a hitch, all while taking more orders .... More

Played with friends, none of whom are great golfers. The wide open layout was challenging but no so challenging that it was frustrating. The course from tee to green was very well maintained. The pin placements were vary fair. The only complaint would be there was no course map to show how individual holes were laid out. Very enjoyable round... More

Hello, PJL_SC! Thanks for your review of our Fazio course. Our course maintenance staff is committed to making sure that our players can focus on their game, instead of worrying about the conditions on the course.
