Description: The Dunes Putting Course is the first phase of a water amenity development for The Resort at San Destin in Florida. The overall project includes several pools, spas, slides, a lazy river and a wave rider. Located adjacent to an existing pond, the putting course has been very popular with guests at the resort. The course layout weaves through three uniquely replicated Florida ecosystems. The Dunes is a 51 par course with 2, 3, and 4 par holes that measure 25 to 60 feet in length and incorporate sand traps, water hazards, fairway mounding, elevation changes and unexpected man-made "breaks."
