Mystic Dunes Resort
Built on one of the highest elevations in the Orlando area, Mystic Dunes is set over 600 acres of rolling hills, lush nature preserves, and tropical landscaping. It’s set just two miles from Walt Disney World and minutes away from Universal Orlando and SeaWorld Orlando
   As for the golf, there’s the championship layout designed by Champions Tour Player and NBC golf analyst Gary Koch. With 80-foot elevation changes, rolling 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 classic Carolina courses, meandering through native wetlands and marsh areas, bordering oak and cypress forests. The back nine features the characteristics of a British Isles links course, with extensive perimeter mounding and pot bunkers, and lush, rolling fairways. There are even two island greens to test your accuracy.
   Before your round, take advantage of the 60,000-s.f. practice facility including a driving range, chipping and putting greens, and practice bunkers. And after the round, you can meet the family at the 18-hole putting course, at one of the four resort pools including Dunes Lagoon, a two-acre recreation area with a two-story water slide, expansive pool deck, private cabanas, and sandy beach area.
   For accommodations, choose from 717 spacious one-, two-, and three-bedroom villas, each with a breakfast bar and/or dining area and fully equipped kitchen. Relax with a private whirlpool bath in the master bedroom, and enjoy flat-screen TVs with Video On Demand.
