Played last wednesday. Great track although the condition was not what it normally is. A lot of water on the course. Still great track. The condition was very good but I played Eagle Ridge a few day earlier and it was in 20% better condition. Amazing for this time of the year.

Played both Dunes and ER a couple of weeks ago. ER conditions is very ordinary dued to the extensive use of carts. How can anyone compare ER with The Dunes ! It's like Albert Park compare with Yarra Bend !

Tombstone Tuesdays off the Black Markers (played Aug & Sept events) $62 inc Cart, what a enjoyable day & certainlly a test your abilities to hit longer clubs into the greens. Course is in superb condition. Do yourself a favour & get Tues Oct 5th or Nov 9th or Dec 5th off work & give it a try. You wouldn't even know we've had 560mm of rain this year at Rosebud

Played today,course in phenomenal condition considering the weather of late, could not fault it. Love The Dunes, brutal course but I love going back to get spanked every time... Bravo to the groundstaff for keeping it pristine

Agreed played there in Nov last year...what a layout. The condition of the fairways were some of the best I've played.

Same same. The Dunes has to be one of the best. The greens are lightning fast and fairways really well covered. Just a tad hard to play if you dont know the course. I hit one perfect shot towards a green, or so I thought as I was behind a giant hill, and it ended up 20 metres left in some rough. Also have to watch the sandy "wastelands" on a number of holes which Dustin Johnson would love as they are not actually bunkers so you can ground your club. Nice clubhouse too, overlooking the scene.

Interesting to recieve an email saying the 15th and 16th are to be replaced with new holes. Thankfully downtime on the course is minimal during construction.

The 15th is too short and the 16th is too long. (both depending on the wind direction obviously) Also the 15th may be considered dangerous because I have hit the 12th green from the tee there before.
