The Dunes was the most perfect spot to have my wedding. The ceremony was by the lake, the reception was under the pavillion and we had an after party in the clubhouse. Dana helped plan everything out perfectly. The ceremony and reception were absolutely amazing and gorgeous!! Everyone had such a fun time. The chef is also phenomenal! I would highly recommend The Dunes Gulf & Tennis Club!Sent on 11/01/2016

I can't say enough great things about The Dunes. I never imagined getting married at a golf course, but the venue had the perfect Florida feel despite not being on the beach. As the first large wedding they have hosted in several years, we were definitely starting with a blank canvas and they far exceed any expectation I had for our wedding. We had our reception under a tent right by the water and the team handled everything for us including tent rental, linens, tables and chairs, flatware, lighting, and all the extra goodies needed for our band. They helped us create an amazing flow from the cocktail hour to the reception. It was a hot day so guests still had the shade of the tent and the spot had a great breeze to cool everyone off. The food was incredible- a perfect mix of seafood and other options so guests got a great glimpse of Florida living but still had their comfort foods available. The whole tent was just a dream and the team was so easy to work with. The food and bar packages are an excellent value and were by far the most impressive of any other vendors I contacted in the area. I highly recommend you check on The Dunes! It's a beautiful location and their creative team can help you achieve whatever it is you're imagining. Whether your budget is large or small, they can help you create a day that fits what you need.Sent on 12/02/2015
