This week, there will be complimentary 10-Minute Tuneup Golf Lessons 9 a.m. to noon and daily closest-to-the-pin contests. On Saturday and Sunday, the course will have U.S. Open-like standards for public players. On Sunday, there will also be a shootout for all the closest-to-the-pin winners of the month. The shootout winner will receive a one-year Dunes golf membership.

June will also be Family Golf Month at the course, so all junior golfers under 18 play free with a paying adult. Each Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon, PGTAA teaching professional Steve LaFalce will offer junior golfers a complimentary video swing analysis and clinics. In addition, all active members of the military can play for free.

The league will be run by Barbara Dohm, with summer tee times every Monday at 8:46 a.m. and winter tee times every Monday at 2 p.m. Dohm asks that golfers arrive at least 20 minutes before teeing off.
