Located on Sanibel Island, The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club is the largest residential community on Sanibel. This 333-acre community was originally developed in 1981 by the Mariner Group, Inc.
Set against a wildlife preserve sanctioned by the Audubon Cooperative Society, the development combines the natural splendor of Sanibel with championship golf and premier tennis facilities. With 5600 yards of manicured greens, the Mark McCumber course is the only PGA course on the island. This very challenging course includes water on every hole with players frequently hitting to an island tee for added difficulty. The club offers an aqua driving range (the only one on the Island) that allows golfers to practice before taking on the formidable Dunes course. Read more about the Dunes real estate.
