Mystic Dunes Resort

In a destination that can get a bit hectic, Mystic Dunes Resort & Golf Club is a distinctive resort where you can enjoy close proximity to the fun and excitement of the world's top family vacation destination, yet escape to a tranquil retreat of spacious villas, large pools, memorable restaurants, and other upscale amenities.

Built on one of the highest elevations in the Orlando area, Mystic Dunes is set over 600 acres of rolling hills, lush preserves, and tropical landscaping. It’s set just two miles from Walt Disney World® and just minutes away from all of Central Florida’s major attractions including Universal Orlando® and SeaWorld® Orlando.

As for golf at Mystic Dunes, there’s the championship layout designed by Champions Tour Player and NBC golf analyst Gary Koch, rated 4.5 stars by Golf Digest magazine. With 80-foot elevation changes, rolling grassy dunes, mature oaks, and large wetland areas, the par-71 course offers two distinctly different nines. The "low country" style front nine is reminiscent of a Carolina course, meandering through native wetlands and marsh areas and bordering oak and cypress forests. The back nine is styled like a British Isles links course, with extensive perimeter mounding and pot bunkers, plus lush, rolling fairways--and two island greens.

Before your round, use the 60,000-s.f. practice facility including driving range, chipping and putting greens, and practice bunkers. After the round, meet the family at the 18-hole putting course or at one of four resort pools including Dunes Lagoon, a two-acre area with a two-story water slide, expansive pool deck, private cabanas, and sandy beach. And supervised children’s programs are available as well.

Choose from 717 spacious one-, two-, and three-bedroom villas, each with full kitchen, breakfast bar or dining area, whirlpool bath in the master bedroom, and flat-screen TVs with Video On Demand. Learn more at
