What to do on Sanibel and Captiva IslandThe Dunes Golf and Tennis Club

If you need a break from the beach but still want to spend your days soaking up the Southwest Florida sun, then make your way to The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club!  The Dunes golf course is nestled inside a stunning wildlife preserve that’s protected by the Audubon society. This creates a unique experience when it’s time to tee off! 

If the Dunes golf course wasn’t already one-of-a-kind, it’s the only golf course on Sanibel and Captiva Islands that offers the Tempo Walk, an autonomous golf caddie. The Tempo Walk allows you to enjoy walking the golf course with a hands-free experience, GPS yardage, and even an integrated cooler that carries your bag so you can stay focused on your short game.

If Tennis is more your style, then check out their court fees. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just looking to have some fun, check out the newly resurfaced Har-Tru tennis courts. They even offer Clubhouse dining where you can enjoy a picturesque Sanibel sunset and a bite to eat by the 18th hole!
